Gene modified a tour for us, taking into account that we had been to London previously. She devised a tour which included areas that we we unlikely to have been to before, and Gene got it right. She is a wonderful historian, the depth of her knowledge is outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent in her company and... More

Her instructions for meeting her were clear and concise. On our particular tour she was assisted by Mike. During the tour you get to see the sites of Wellington "up... More

We booked a walking tour with Gene Mitchell in Wellington, New Zealand for March 6, 2014. Due to a cruise deviation to avoid rough seas, we arrived in Wellington two days early. Gene very kindly adapted her schedule to do the tour on the afternoon we arrived. She was waiting for us at the Train Station as promised and took... More

We recently contacted Gene Mitchell and asked that she take us on a walking tour of Wellington. We were extremely pleased with the tour that she took us on. We felt that we really got a great overview of the city of Wellington, its history and its beauty. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend Gene to anyone... More

We are a couple of Boomers from Perth and we wanted to see as much of Wellington as possible in the limited time we had from the cruise ship. Gene Mitchell is a total professional from start to the end and beyond. I could write a novella on how good the lady is and what value for money the tour... More

We had a wanderful afternoon, visited the museum at Tea Papa, walked the whole city including the funicular and the botanical gardens. Gene is a wanderful host, with academic knowledge of the...

8 of us met Genie on a very windy, rainy day in Wellington for a walking tour. She accommodated our request to meet later because of the weather and to add some extra people to the tour and ensured we covered all the major sights, providing a wealth of historical and interesting information. As the weather improved she walked us... More

Genie went above and beyond in arranging a walking tour for my cruise critic group even though she was off the island when we'd be arriving. She arranged for her associate Michael McMenamin To lead our group, and he was a great choice. He led us to various cathedrals and government buildings providing insider and historic info as we went.... More

Gene impressed us by tailoring our walk to fit in with our corporate afternoon team time-frame and looked after us completely to ensure we knew exactly where to meet and ensured that we kept together and knew exactly where we were heading to throughout the whole walk. The tour had everything, the right pace, great character, humour and abundant history.... More
