This was one thing we wanted to do. And it was worth the price ($99 per person). Scenery you can not see any other way. And the damage from recent floods was incredible. A must do when in Dunedin!

We had an excellent day. The weather was great. The views were spectacular - you would never see most of this from a car as there are no roads close by for most of the journey.

Loved this tour. The commentary throughout, was informative & well delivered. The trip was great & the train car was lovely. Ours was an old wooden one dating from 1903 - 193?. Highly recommend.
