owners & tour guides Kim & Ann Hayward
We've been running Iconic Tours for 10 years now! It has been a wild and wonderful ride, we've met so many amazing people and had the honor of showcasing all the fantastic places and attractions we have in Dunedin, as well as exploring much of the South Island and Stewart Island on our multi-day tours.
We continue to offer personalised tour experiences and have now developed our own visitor attraction; Iconic Farm Tours - where couples, families and special interest groups can meet, feed and pet our friendly farm animals while learning about how small farms work.
Also we now offer a lovely venue for kids birthdays with our Party House and Pixies & Pirates playground. Finally we have established Wayward Design, where we design and make on-site resuable, eco-friendly gifts & souvenirs for you to purchase online or onsite during your visit.
Kim has a passion for taking people on exciting and informative tours. His philosophy behind the business is to identify and show people the very best places to visit in Dunedin and the wider South Island. Kim has a keen interest in history and culture so people taking Iconic Tours can share in this local knowledge.
Kim has many years experience as a tour bus driver and wildlife guide. Kim has worked in most sectors of the tourism industry as well as completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism and a Post Graduate Diploma in Tourism from the University of Otago. He has also worked with people with disabilities.
