We did not do any of the ship's excursions, so walked to the port office and got the shuttle into Dunedin 20NZD return pp. It took 30 mins to get to the Octagon where we were met by friendly and helpful information centre volunteers. We connected to the free wifi then walked down to the train station which was quite charming. We also inspected the restored train engine nearby. As it started raining, we didn't walk to the Botanical Gardens, which we were planning on doing, but continued to walk around the city exploring as we went. Read Less

We did an excursion through an external company. Dunedin is a nice, very hilly city. I would recommend seeing Olveston House as it was beautiful.

We liked Dunedin. We wanted to take the train excursion but it was truly disgustingly expensive. Like, disgustingly. I've been on way better train rides than that for a lot less. Even the train at Flam was less expensive, with more spectacular views than this rail journey offered. I would still go on this train but only from the station, not on an overpriced ship tour. And the ships timing seemed calculated to ensure people could not simply go into town and catch the train from there. There were some bus/train excursions people could take. We decided to take a shuttle into the city and walk around, have coffee and visit the station building. It was a very nice city, some interesting buildings. The train station was lovely. We didn't do a lot in the city but we enjoyed doing a bit of shopping and sightseeing. Nice city. Read Less

We walked around the town and visited the museum which was huge and very interesting. Also visited the Chinese gardens, very pretty.

From our designated seats we saw little on the way up the gorge. Passengers need to alternate seats on the return journey

We hired a car here (prebook!!) and toured the Otago Peninsular before heading into town for a look at the train station. There are several lookouts and a cool, but small, Maritime Museum in Port Chalmers where the ship docks.

Wonderful but messy boarding of the train. In addition, other passengers were taking all the tables by the windows with no consideration to the rest. Selfish behavior. The actual views and train rides were excellent.

Free public wifi by the octagon. Otago Settlers Museum was really interesting, and surprisingly free. Port Chalmers itself is very nice and I would recommend taking a walk along the water there.
