About Otago Tours

We specialise in guided tours that take you off the beaten track to discover hidden treasures and enjoy an authentic experience of our beautiful region. We won’t be taking you to gift shops to buy the T-shirt but we will take you to meet the locals and experience the real Otago.

We have developed a range of tours including scenic Dunedin, heritage, flora and fauna, wine tasting, art trails, Lord of the Rings and Hobbit filming sites, river cruising, horse-trekking, cycling and more. We offer tours from 1 day to 10 days in Dunedin, Central Otago and into the Deep South and High Country to fit with your travel plans. 

We also offer longer tours (21 days) across the whole of New Zealand so contact us for more information.

All of our Guides live locally and have in-depth knowledge of each area they tour including Maori history, European heritage, natural environment and local industry.

The regions page will give you more information about the areas we tour in Otago, into the High Country and the Deep South. The Tours page outlines all of our packaged tour options including nationwide tours and speciality cruise ship options.

We can also customize tours to meet your individual needs.

Otago Tours makes it easy to discover heartland New Zealand.
