COVID-19 - Update as at April 2022
The city of Dunedin, our home city, is currently operating under the Orange traffic light Covid 19 Protection Framework system and as such many tour operators and businesses may ask visitors and guests present their valid Covid-19 vaccine pass. This requirement may change in accordance with Government advice. 
If your tour is cancelled due to government restrictions we can either offer a full refund (before the commencement date of the tour) or transfer your booking to another departure date.
All other circumstances around Covid-19 cancellations will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
