About Andrew Rutherford

After many years of working in the transport and Tourism industry with Kiwi Shuttles and Glenorchy Air I moved with my family to the community of Port Chalmers and started Exploring New Zealand to show visitors and residents the beautiful West Harbour area of Dunedin. I also provide charter buses for schools and early childhood centres.

Other Staff

As well as myself we also have Wayne Boutcher as a driver/guide and Phillippa Dunkley as a marketer and guide.

2020-2021 Cruise Ship Season

This will be our ninth cruise ship season in operation, and we are hoping to reach as many people as possible so we can give them a great value tour of Dunedin for an exceptional price. As well as full and half day tours we provide shuttles from the ship at a lower price than the ones provided by the ship.

Vehicle Fleet

Our current fleet consists of four vehicles:

1x Nissan Civilian bus with 19 passenger seats. 1x Nissan Civilian bus with 21 passenger seats. 2x MAN buses with 37 passenger seats each.
