Cruise ship Day Tours for the South Island

Christchurch – Akaroa – Dunedin – Otago Peninsula areas

Zealandier Tours personally hosts Shore Excursions from the Ports of Auckland and Tauranga but we can readily arrange your south island tours / excursions of New Zealand with our sister companies.

We have co-opted as a group of like-minded, highly recommended, quality tour operators who hold to the same ethos and values, who purposely design and offer tour itineraries which complement one another to give you the client, a fantastic over-view of all that our country has to offer.

Tours from Akaroa

Akaroa – Christchurch

Tours from Dunedin

Dunedin – Tairere Train Experience

Our itineraries are deliberately very full as it is our objective to expose you to the maximum experiences of scenic splendours and unique cultures in the allotted time frame which you have while ashore.

We offer Cruise ship Day Tours for Akaroa, Christchurch, Dunedin and the Otago Peninsula. From the historic French & British settlement of Akaroa positioned in the heart of an ancient volcano with its colonial architecture to the fresh new re-start Mall in the centre of Christchurch city. New Zealand’s 2nd largest city and the gateway to the South Island is surrounded by hills and ocean, situated on the edge of the Canterbury Plains which stretch to the Southern Alps. Christchurch city is still in the middle of a major rebuild post the 2011 earthquake. The city is on track with its proposed new development to be a Green city and a compact city where you can learn, play, live & work and still embrace its cultural values and English heritage.

Take a tour with us and you will find yourself amidst an experienced local tour guide & luxury transport as you explore our local sights and attractions.

Tours from Dunedin or Port Chalmers are also offered by us. This port is one of the favourites for cruise passengers and the Taieri Gorge Express Train is the most popular tour. You may wish to make the most of the Otago region by experiencing this area by rail then adding on an afternoon tour out onto the Peninsula to see the beaches and wildlife. Check out our Taieri Gorge and Otago Peninsula for something a little different. Alternatively our Best Dunedin shore excursion focuses on the nature and architecture, with a city tour of historic Dunedin, a visit to the rare Yellow Eyed Penguin Place and Laranch Castle. Whatever you wish to see or do in the beauty of the Deep South, we can guarantee one of our tours will be right for you.
