Marion was a wonderful soul, and her impact is still felt today. Originally from Scotland, she came to New Zealand in her teens and never gave up
her Glasgow accent. After raising her family, she travelled often, and at any given opportunity she was on an aeroplane or a cruise-ship. Marion is recognised for her generosity, creativity, entrepreneurship, and tenacity. As Citywalksz Managing Director, she and her international team successfully developed walking tours for 130 worldwide destinations. Above all, Marion was a master at bringing people together and making them feel like part of the family.
