“Wellington Walking Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

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 us on an informative and interesting tour of Wellington. The walk was a bit abbreviated due to rain, but Gene adapted the tour and made helpful suggestions for the next day when we would be on our own. We very much appreciated Gene’s friendly and helpful emails prior to and during our voyage to Wellington. She knows the city well and is a superb guide.

“Walking Tour of Wellington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

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 that is looking to see the city of Wellington up close and first-hand by walking along its sidewalks, gardens, cemeteries and museums.

“Walking Wellington with Gene is the way to do it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

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 she gives is. If you are looking for a tour operator in Wellington and you want to see and hear more than the sights, I would highly recommend Genie's Private Walking Tours
Gene, thanks for a great day out and best of luck for the future. Cheers Garry and Helen

“Walking tour of Wellington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

We were on a cruise ship and had a stop at Wellington, we are a family of 6. We decided to hire Gene Mitchell for a walking tour. 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 city and its buildings, we also learned a lot about trees and plants and you name it. Later the same day we had a short stop at Weta Caves with a taxi that gene helped organise for a perfect day at Wellington.

“Great day with Genie in Wellington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

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 down through the botanical gardens, ending at the Te Pape Museum (also highly recommended). It was a great tour and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
