The Castle Cruiser - Dunedin's only locally owned daily trip to Larnach Castle

We are Dunedin's ONLY locally owned and operated daily Larnach Castle tour, ensuring that your money stays inside of Dunedin rather than go to out of town corporate businesses.

We are also the longest of the tours going to Larnach Castle which means you get more time to explore the Castle and grounds. Included as standard is a comprehensive tour of Dunedin City. We will tell you all you will ever need to know about this NZ icon and the backstory that makes it so interesting.

Our knowledge of Larnach Castle is unsurpassed. Your tour is both visually stunning (weather dependent) and memorable.

Your bus the "Eliza Jane" is extremely comfortable and has leather reclining seats and air-conditioning. Groups are never more than 13 people + driver/guide.
