What do I need to bring?

Do you offer private walks?

Yes, we can do private tours. Please contact us directly for more information on private, corporate or large group tours.

Why are you free?

We really, truly are a social enterprise, which means we really, truly do this because we’re just that passionate about showing visitors our weird and wonderful city. That is what inspired the creation of AFWT, and that is what our motivation will always be. We encourage all our happy customers to offer their guide a ‘koha’ (gift, donation, contribution) at the end of the walk.

Where can I park my car?

The closest parking is a 5 minute walk away. Please to find out parking rates and location.
