      Worth the Money
      Robin was very gracious & very knowledgeable. She took her time answering our questions & explaining particularly the history of Darwin & the Northern Territories. We definitely recommend this walking tour.

      Fun and relaxed way to get to know Darwin history and modern culture

      Passionate locals knowledge - PRICELESS!
      Highly recommend 🤗💕. John is a local who is passionate in sharing the little Hidden Gems of Darwin most I had just walked by. I did two tours with John & his passion never wavered. He took the time to find out my interests (& all group members) & incorporated as much as he could in the short time. What wasn’t covered John gave easy to follow instructions for us to go back & find in our own time, which I did & really appreciated his advice. I loved both tours and would do more if I had time. I highly recommend Walk Darwin Tours. Thank you so much John; very much appreciated.

      Great couple of hours to spend to get an insight into Darwin
      John was great, he was very knowledgeable and his funny tangents took us not just across history but also the local community, the economy, characters of the area and culture. We saw lots of things we’d otherwise have walked past and a great mix of scenery.

      A great intro to the city of Darwin
      As a total newbie to Darwin with only limited knowledge about specific historical events, this was a great introduction to the city and it's history. Our guide John obviously has great affection for Darwin, and was friendly and knowledgeable, and presented the city's history in an interesting way.

      Awesome
      Heritage city tour. John is very easy-going and spritely. We'd walked through town the day before and today he uncovered so much context and interesting history that we'd completely missed, worth every minute!

      Walking tour a highlight
      John’s walking tour was a highlight of our visit to Darwin so far. We learned so much and got good pointers on what else to do. John was a great guide - a really decent fellow, but also affable and interesting.

      Good pace and informative
      A really informative tour at just the right pace to absorb everything. The walking was at a gentle pace with lots of stops. Our guide, John, really loves Darwin and has spent many years researching the area so he was able to answer all of our questions. The tour was just the right length and we were able to get our bearings to guide the rest of our visit.

      Not to be missed!
      As first time visitors to Darwin, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hours spent with John our guide. He was amazingly informative about his town and the history thereof. He had a good sense of humour which kept the walking tour easy to do. Highly recommend

      Great experience
      This tour was easy going and I found it very knowledgeable. John had lots of interesting facts and sights to share. The street art was amazing! There was only 4 of us, so easy to hear him speak. The pace was just right for a hot day. Enjoyed the unexpected coffer break and view from 16th floor building. Well worth it.

    Very enjoyable 1 hour free guided tour of the Botanic Gardens by Walk Darwin funded by the government. This is not a serious botanic tour but an easy paced overview with history about the gardens and advice as to other sections that may be of interest to the guest.
    Suited us just perfectly.

    This is an excellent, informative and well-researched tour covering the history of the gardens and many of the plants and wildlife living in the gardens.

    Yvonne, our guide, could answer all of our questions, and guide us through some stunning seasonal flowerings - of the boab tree, cannonball tree and many varieties of ornamental ginger. She also knew where to find a barking owl (snoozing high up in a tree) and lovely blue-winged kookaburra.

    I joined the final free walking tour of the gardens (mid Oct 2018), organised with Walk Darwin by the Darwin City Council. It would definitely be worth paying for this excellent tour.

    A relaxed opportunity to learn more about the history of the gardens and some key features. It provides a springboard to further explore those areas that you are interested in. The talk was informative and conducted at a good pace. Questions were happily welcomed. A great introduction!

    A one hour walking tour in the heat was not something that I had planned but very pleased that we took the tour. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting and we walked at a pace that was easy to keep up with.
    Most enjoyable, as was the cold drink in the cafe afterwards.
