Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Newcastle Architecture, Street Art & Hidden Secrets was an absolute delight! Our knowledgeable guide Becky taught us so much, unveiling the city's hidden gems and iconic landmarks with passion and enthusiasm. With each step, we discovered a newfound appreciation for our local area. This tour not only enlightened us but ignited a genuine love for Newcastle, leaving us eager to explore even more of its treasures. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to uncover the heart and soul of the city!

What a fabulous way to be introduced to Newcastle… our walk tour guide, Gemma was knowledgeable, engaging and able to respond to all my many questions about the buildings and public artworks we walked around. She was warm and friendly and made the tour a really enjoyable experience.
This was my first visit to Newcastle and I enjoyed this activity so much that i hope to return soon and join another of the Newcastle Afoot walk tours, to further explore this interesting city.

Gemma was our tour guide on this particular tour. Gemma was very knowledgeable and had lots of information regarding all the places she took us to. My friend has lived in Newcastle for over 40 years now, and Gemma showed her places and street art that she was completely unaware existed. The tour went for two hours and was done at a very pleasant walking pace for a couple of 60+-year-old women.

I would strongly recommend this cure for not just tourists but locals as well. I will be booking in for the other tour in the near future.

Did you know that Newcastle is the second oldest city in Australia, well now you do!

Becky our guide was so knowledgeable and made the tour so exciting and fun! I loved being a tourist in my own city and learned so many new things. Would definitely recommend even if you have lived in Newcastle a long time! Likewise would recommend for tourists to get to know the interesting history of and stories about the area.

We went on this tour as a large family group of 11. We all thoroughly enjoyed it. It showcased interesting historical and contemporary aspects of the city.
It was well organised and Gemma was a delightful and passionate guide.

Becky is super lovely and knowledgeable. The combination of history, architecture and street art makes for an engaging wander. I particularly appreciated the inclusion of Awabakal, Worimi and white histories.
This walk is accessible to just about everyone as it is not too strenuous and is on fairly level surfaces. Highly recommended to visitors to Newcastle and locals alike!

Had a very enjoyable and informative tour with Gemma. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject matter and paced the group very well. Wouldn't have minded learning a few more hidden secrets, though -- be sure to ask for those.

My partner and I really enjoyed our tour of Newcastle with Becky! She was extremely knowledgeable and passionate, had great recommendations, and enthralled us with her lessons on the history of the city. Well worth the money and would highly recommend. We’re sad that we didn’t have an opportunity to take the Seascapes to Laneways tour before we leave, as we would have happily taken another Newcastle Afoot tour during our time here. Thank you Becky for the fabulous tour and recommendations!
