We loved our day with Gene - she is the best!! We were on a cruise and opted to do our own tour rather than a huge group. What a terrific decision...we saw everything and had an absolutly wonderful time with Gene. She is a wealth of information and a delightful person. She made Wellington marvelous for us.

What better way to get to know Wellington than to go on one of Gene's very informative and enjoyable tours.
Her pre-purchase of the cable car tickets saved us time queuing; and we covered a huge area seeing most of the important sites as well as learning a lot about the history, culture, folklore, and architecture.
We left having felt that we really knew the place well, and confidently revisited some of the places on our own and at our leisure.
A thoroughly enjoyable few hours.

Genie met us at the Railway station promptly on time as promised with a warm greeting. With a spring in her gait, we all headed off to discover the many city venues that would interest any traveller. Her knowledge of the city and it's history were excellent. Her tour was thoroughly enjoyable for the 3+ hours and very reasonable fee.
No hesitations in recommending her services.

We considered this to offer the best value for money of all our excursions during our trip to NZ. We had expected to hear background on al the main sights, but got much more than this during our personal guided walk - we particularly enjoyed the chats between stopping points which gave us an added insight into a wide variety of topics relevant to our previous trip around North & South Islands ... and beyond!

My friends and I loved this tour. Genie obviously enjoys what she does and is interested in the people she guides. We had a very enjoyable morning and were very lucky with the weather!
I would recommend this as an introduction to Wellington for anyone who is capable of walking for three hours (nothing strenuous).
