A very interesting, instructive and enjoyable city walk. It let me have a good approach to the history and development of Dunedin, with many curiosities that, otherwise, I would not have known. Thanks Athol for your great work, and remember... Quijote :) Highly recommendable.

Inner city walk that takes you back in time/history, a new perspective from a knowledgeable historian that is informative and entertaining... highly recommend to fellow Dunediners, school groups and visitors.
