Picked up from campsite, tour of town, good information, saw places that we would have missed. Oamaru penguins experience very good.

Very old bus, driver only knew it needed fuel because he got a phone call and then had to detour back to fill it up. The grand stand view to see the blue penguins was haphazardly organised - appeared overpriced. Our worst South Island experience.

I took a bus tour that went to the beach of the Yellow Eyed Penguin but had only 15 to 30 minutes there. I didn't see any because we needed more time to have a chance to see them at the right moment. For the little blue penguins, we really needed binoculars to see them properly and they didn't advise me about this when I booked.

Not very spectacular city tour, but very friendly!
