We did the Old Town Walk with Athol and it was a great walk and we learnt so much about the history, the buildings and the key events that shaped Dunedin. If you are coming off a cruise ship it's great because the tour start right near where the bus drops you off (in front of the i-Site). We highly recommend this tour.

Thanks very much, folks; I enjoyed our walk that day. Yes, the Old Town Walk is a good option for cruise pax - and others. The walk's 10.30am start time is convenient for most people too. Thanks again!

We did the City Walk with Andrew in February on the day the Piped Bands came to town which made for a noisy start to what proved to be a most interesting couple of hours - actually two and a half hours as we held up progress with questions which Andrew patiently and thoroughly answered. Having grown up in Dunedin he has an extensive knowledge of the history of the city and of the personalities who have helped develop it. The distance covered was not great but contained a wealth of interesting material. Andrew has an engaging manner which made the experience all the more worthwhile.

Thanks very much for your review, John - and apologies that I've only noticed it today. Yes, pipe bands are an occupational hazard here in Dunedin! They are a great spectacle, though, and a reminder of the Scottish heritage here. Best regards, Athol.

Our small group loved our unique Laneways guided walk with Athol, in fact it was the highlight of our trip to Dunedin! You could sense Athol’s passion for his city and we enjoyed learning about Dunedin in the most engaging way possible - by chatting to a local. Our guide was very knowledgeable and well prepared with historic photographs, newspaper articles and personal anecdotes to share. Highly recommend a walking tour with Athol on your next visit to Dunedin.

I had the pleasure today to complete the Old Town Walking Tour with
City Walks guide/host Athol. I found him to be knowledgeable, engaging, and passionate about Dunedin's history. As I happened to have the good fortune to be the sole participant on this particular tour, Athol tailored the tour to my interests and our discussions ranged from past history to current local social, economic and political events in Dunedin. He was generous in sharing his time and insight. I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and Athol's personable engaging presentation. I highly recommend it.

A very belated thank you for this review! Somehow it escaped my attention. January seems a long time ago now, and so much has changed. New Zealand's borders have been closed since March, but we are officially rid of COVID-19 here now and life is almost back to normal. I trust you are well. Athol.
