Highly recommend

Lyndon was an excellent tour guide, weaving together Maori culture, New Zealand history, and great personality while showing us wildlife and plant life. We were able to see fur seals, penguins, albatross, dolphins, many other bird species, and learn about some important plants. I would highly recommend this tour!

Super boys

Both boys are super nice. They made us a wonderful and memorable holiday experience in Dunedin. The picnic lunch is also a nightlight. Highly recommend to everyone!

Kia ora Selena, Thank you so much for your fantastic review. We loved showing your family around Dunedin and the Peninsula. Your boys were a lot of fun for both James and Lyndon. Hope to see you back this way again someday, The Horizon Tours Whanau, (family)
