We booked a tour with ICONIC Tours in Dunedin which was so informative. Our guide Allan shared with us not only the details of each place we visited but also of the history of Dunedin, its people and the country of New Zealand. The day was cool, windy and overcast but with Allan's direction these things became secondary. We visited... More

I had Iconic Tours take my small group of passengers from our cruise ship for a tour of the Otago Peninsula, with stops at the Penguin Place and the Royal Albatross Center. Kim, the owner/driver/guide is excellent. She is well-informed, gives non-stop comments, when appropriate, using a microphone/loudspeaker system so everybody understands her perfectly. The Penguin Place was a bit... More

Due to the small size of the group it was also very flexible giving us choices as to what we would like to see in the half day tour. I would find it surprising if anyone would not be happy... More
