Easter hours - 13th Apr 2017

Easter hours It's always difficult to guess what is open and operating during Easter weekend, and what is not.

City Walks will not operate Friday, 14th April, nor on Sunday, 16th April.

Regular departures will be offered Saturday, 15th April, and on Monday, 17th April.

There may be some rain over the weekend, but with the autumn colours it is very pretty in Dunedin just now and a great time to see the sights.

Have a safe and happy Easter!

2016/ 2017 Season Underway - 17th Oct 2016

2016/ 2017 Season Underway Spring has sprung, Dunedin is looking a picture, and City Walks is back in 'regular season' mode.

There has been a lot of positive feedback about our 10.30am Old Town Walk, so this season we've decided to offer the Old Town Walk at 10.30am and 1.30pm. The Heritage Highlights Walk, which is a shorter version of the Old Town Walk and includes whisky and haggis (instead of coffee), will again be offered at 4pm.

Remember, the walks depart from Dunedin's i-Site Visitor Information Centre (corner of George Street and The Octagon), daily except Sundays.

Busman's holiday - 11th Jul 2016

Busman's holiday What does a walking-tour guide do for a holiday? He goes for a walk, of course. This time we're off to do the Rakiura Track, on beautiful Stewart Island.

This means that City Walks tours in Dunedin will cease until Monday, 18th July. Remember, this is the winter season, so there's only one departure a day, at 10.30am - and this needs to be booked in advance (see previous news item).

Happy walking,

Athol
