About Us

OUR TEAM

Footsteps is led and operated by Phillip Donnell, who has spent more than 50 years actively enjoying the outdoors. He has led hundreds of walking excursions in NZ and overseas under the auspices of his tramping club and Federated Mountain Clubs of NZ, or with family and friends.

When needed, Phillip enlists the assistance of people who have walked with him for many years, and who have a huge depth of experience behind them.
