just enough time? C’mon, lets go!

We understand that you might have other things to do, so we can take you on a 2, 3, or 4 hour tour to get a good overview of our city. This is perfect for cruise ship passengers who are trying to pack in as much as possible during their stop at Port Chalmers.

Just remember that we can customise all of our tours to fit in whatever activities that you would like to see. We can pick up and drop off at the cruise ship terminal at the Port, or in and around the Octagon at the iSite for catching shuttles back to the ship later in the day.
