Hi, I'm Chris, tour guide, story teller and born and bred Dunedinite. Freshly back from 10 years overseas, where I ended up working six years as a city guide in Germany, I'm back with a fresh appreciation for my hometown and a desire to share this with travellers like you. Let me show you round and you'll soon see why "Dunners" is the best wee city in the world.

Where you'll be

Starting at the i-Site visitors centre, we will take a quick lap of the Octagon before heading for the stunning First Church, then down lower Stuart street past the courts and old prison (just visiting) to the Dunedin train station. After a mosey round this stunning building we head past the historic Maori landing and settlement site towards Vogel street, the flourishing creative area with its trendy bars, cafes and street art for an espresso.

Great tour, Chris is very knowledgeable about the buildings in Dunedin. The tour was supposed to be 1 hour but actually went for nearly 2 which represented great value. Easy to get along with, would highly recommend.

Chris ist ein kompetenter und liebenswürdiger Guide, der sich gut auskennt und gute Insidertips hat. Außerdem spricht er gut Deutsch, was die Führung auch für Menschen, deren Englisch ein bisschen eingerostet ist verständlich macht. Auf jeden Fall buchen.

We just stayed 1 night in Dunedin and this tour was perfect. Interesting facts, also some cool recommendation for shopping, having lunch and spots, where you can see wildlife. Easy to walk, lots to see, great price. Espresso was really good. Dunedin is a hip city and not to busy with tourist, worth to say some days.

Die 1-stündige Tour war fantastisch. Chris ist in Dunedin aufgewachsen und kennt viele Geschichten, die in keinem Reiseführer stehen. Die Tour ist ein guter Mix aus geschichtlichen Fakten, spannenden Geschichten und Tipps eines Einheimischen! Ein besonderer Pluspunkt für mich: Chris spricht außerdem fließend Deutsch. Danke - auch für den tollen Espresso!
