"I visited the Sky Tower intending to take the Sky Walk but not really appreciating what was involved until I got there. I had not fully read a description of the experience but soon found out what was involved! On arrival at the reception, I found that my fellow walkers were to be a gentleman celebrating his 90th Birthday (I kid you not) accompanied by his daughter. Well, I couldn't back out if he was brave enough to do it. I must admit that I cannot possibly describe the feeling as I stepped onto that platform 192 metres high, even though attached to the harness....sheer terror and with a fixed smile which was more of a grimace!!! But oh what an experience (and what views) although it probably took me to the end of the walk before I could say I was getting confident. But a "must do" for every visitor to Auckland."

"I am pretty freaked out by heights, but I did the SkyWalk while in Auckland and it was a great time. The guides were very patient and understanding about the nervousness of the people on the tour, and talked to us and showed us Auckland sights in such a manner that you didn't realize you were leaning out over the edge until it was too late.
This is a pretty unique attraction that you shouldn't miss."

“Ok, let me start off by saying I am scared of heights. Terrified. I'm fine with flying, but I can't even stand on a chair or climb a ladder, so what on earth was I thinking signing up to walk around a ledge on a tower 192 metres above ground ? ....Well, not only did I do the SkyWalk but I absolutely LOVED IT! Once you get used to the fact that you are 192 metres off the ground, wearing a bright orange jumpsuit and secured only by a safety harness, there's really nothing to it except for pure fun!
The walkway itself is around 1 metre wide so there's not a lot of room for dancing around, but that's not part of the plan anyway! The views are fantastic, our guide was friendly, patient, knowledgeable and encouraging and you can buy a DVD of your trip to prove to the folks back home that you actually did it!”

“The guide, Kenny, was cheeky and good fun whilst being incredibly patient, understanding and encouraging with those in our party that were nervous. In the end, we all had a great time and with some unbelievable photos as mementos.”
