          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
          John was fantastically knowledgeable about all aspects of Darwin history and culture. Coffee at half way was perfectly timed. Highly recommend.

          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.

          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.

          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.

        This is an informative yet relaxed day tour with a great tour guide. Lunch at Adelaide River was very nice also. Jan whose property we visited was a walking talking font of information as well as a lovely lady.

        Our World War II Beyond Darwin tour shows a bit more of WWII history beyond the city boundries. It is one of Johns favourite tours. And he does like getting out of Darwin for the day.

        I visited Darwin at end of dry season (& midst 2nd wave of COVID-19) & was chuffed to have the guides all to myself on all three tours (Botanic Gardens, Darwin Heritage & WWII Beyond) I did with Walk Darwin; this made for a more personalised experience than I was expecting. Pricing for all tours was extremely reasonable. I cannot commend Brian, Yvonne & John enough; all were long-time locals, personable, very knowledgeable (about Darwin/WW II history & botany) & more than capable of answering my myriad of questions. Unlike many other tour guides I've had, if they didn't know the answer, they didn't fob you off with some phoney response! On WWII Beyond tour got to visit many historic sites that are unavailable (on private land) or well & truly off the beaten tourist track. Would HIGHLY recommend any of the Walk Darwin tours to others.
