We opted for the self guided your for $20 & it was an eye opener into how New Zealand's miners once lived. It was well worth it. The shorter walk through chinaman town a reconstruction of the original settlement takes 30 min if you opt for the longer 1 hour walk be warned the path disappears in parts & it's a true adventure to find your way back!!! There are no facilities once you leave the centre & it can get stiflingly hot on the longer walk so you also need a decent amount of fitness for the longer walk. The panning for hold at the end is fun if a little staged for the "tourist"!
