About
Dunedin is a great wee city and is best explored on foot. New Zealand's largest city 1865-1889, and a university town, Dunedin boasts some picturesque streetscapes and standout Victorian buildings. This small-group tour is fun and interesting - and a great introduction to Dunedin. See the reviews of our walks!

There is more to Dunedin than meets the eye.
Feb 2021
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.

Engaging and insightful historical tour
Jan 2020 • Solo
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.
