"The Castle Cruiser" is Dunedin's premier transport and guided tour to New Zealand's only Castle, Larnach Castle.

Our vehicle - "The Eliza Jane" (named after Larnach's beloved first wife)- is a 13 seater luxury bus. Air-conditioned "she" has leather reclining seats, DVD player, stereo, individual headphones, drinks fridge, as well as facilities to provide full driver commentary.

Your comfort is assured given this is the best appointed vehicle that goes daily to Larnach Castle. Go on treat yourself to something special.

Our tour is 4 hours duration, the longest of the daily tours to the Castle meaning we spend both the longest time at the Castle as well as exploring Dunedin city with our comprehensive city sights tour.

Tours depart at 9.30am with pick-ups starting 20 minutes prior.

Cruise ship day departures are 9.45am from Port Chalmers and 10.15am from Dunedin i-Site Information Centre in the Octagon.

On cruise ship days our tour duration is 6.5 hours from Port Chalmers and 5.5 hours when picked up from in town. Our city tour also is extended to take in even more sights than our usual daily tour hence we have called the tour on cruise ship days Dunedin's "Big Day Out".

A full historical commentary is given en route which is complemented by spectacular Otago Peninsula views. Photo stops are also made to capture this beauty.

Castle and Gardens entry are included as is a fully guided tour of the rooms that are open to the public.

This tour is a not to be missed Dunedin attraction and makes the Larnach Castle experience even more worthwhile given you get to know the full history, drama and tragedy that beset the castles original owner, William Larnach and his family.

We also have Combo Tours that provide excellent value for money and will make your Dunedin experience one to both "save-or" and remember!

Our rates are valid 1 October - 30 September each year when they are subject to change which may be reflected in any forward bookings after that date for the following season.
