Vogel Street Walk half price for TRENZ delegates - 1st May 2018

Vogel Street Walk half price for TRENZ delegates City Walks welcomes TRENZ delegates to Dunedin.

Dunedin is a great wee city with a whole lot of charm. The best way to explore the place is with us - on foot.

We're offering a special deal to TRENZ delegates this week: TRENZ delegates can do the Vogel Street Walk for just $10/ pax - that's right, half price. Please make a reservation on our Contact page or at the Dunedin i-Site Visitor Centre (corner of George Street and the Octagon). Tickets must be purchased before the walk: your guide can accept cash payment ($NZ please), but EFTPOS or credit card payments must be made at the i-Site.

The walks take 45 mins - 1 hour, starting and finishing at Vogel Street Kitchen (76  Vogel Street). Departure is at 9am, Monday - Saturday. Coffee is not included on the tour, but you'd be silly not to have one, before or after the walk, at Vogel Street Kitchen or one of the several other groovy cafes in Vogel Street.

The walk focuses on the fall and rise of Vogel Street, and recent developments across our characterful warehouse precinct.

Vogel Street Walk starts soon - 26th Apr 2018

Vogel Street Walk starts soon From May 1st, 2018, we're introducing a new walk, called the Vogel Street Walk. A short walk, just 45 mins - 1 hour duration, it will detail the fall and rise of Vogel Street - and the general (re)development happening across Dunedin's characterful warehouse precinct. Certainly we'll place the area in historical context, but the focus will very much be on recent/ current/ future development down there.

The walks will be offered daily except Sundays, and depart at 9am. We'll start and finish the walks at Vogel Street Kitchen (76 Vogel Street). Coffee is not included, but you might choose to grab one before or after the walk - at Vogel Street Kitchen or one of the several other great cafes on the street.

For a limited time, the walks will cost just $20 (adults)/ $5 (children). As with our other walks, reservations should be made via our Contact  page or at the Dunedin i-Site Visitor Centre. Tickets must be purchased before the walk. Your guide can accept cash, but EFTPOS or credit card payment must be made at the Dunedin Visitor Centre (corner of George Street and the Octagon).
