Tourworks NZ's Passion

Tourworks NZ

At Tourworks, we are passionate about Dunedin, NZ and specialize in small group tours. The tourism numbers are growing and it’s important to us that our place is shown in a true and positive light. We want our visitors to have a truly memorable experience with a focus on eco-tourism, conservation, and most importantly, lots of fun in Dunedin, NZ.

The team at Tourworks NZ are born and bred Dunedinites who enjoy the easy living Dunedin, NZ has to offer. We have travelled a fair bit of the globe and know what makes a good tour. When we are not guiding, we like to get into the outdoors or cafés as well as supporting our rugby team – we take no responsibility for a hoarse voice the day after a match!

Russ has lived in Dunedin all his life and has a real passion for the city and surrounding areas. With a love of travel, meeting people, and a great sense of humour, Russ got into Tourworks NZ to showcase the region’s spectacular scenery, wildlife, iconic heritage buildings, and many other attractions. Oh and if you are into sport or music, Russ is always on for a chat.

Les is the most experienced guide at Tourworks NZ. He has been taking tours for years now and his knowledge of all things Dunedin borders on encyclopedic! When Les is not driving the tour van, he is chasing grandchildren around, guiding on the hiking trails of the South Island, golfing, travelling, and keeping busy with rotary.
