Thank you for taking time to review us. I will be reminding staff of noise levels during the movie. I will also check why the sound was low. Can you please let me know what day and time you took the tour? Thanks Abby

If you have time & with limited budget, join the walking tour. If money in the pocket allows to do more, get in the vantage car. No regret as you will be surprise with a lot of information

We loved our Art Deco walking tour with our very informative guide Lyn. This was one of the reasons we visited Napier and we were not disappointed. Beautiful architecture. I hope it is preserved for generations to come.

Really enjoyed the walking tour which started with a presentation and ended with a short film which complemented the walk well. Headsets made hearing the guide easy. Thoroughly recommend for locals and tourists alike. It gives you a new insight into Napier.

We had an amazing guided tour of Napier in a vintage car. Cherrie, our driver, was fantastic, knowledgeable and provided so much information on the area, both pre and post 1931 earthquake and the various Art Deco buildings. A must for visitors. Thank you Cherrie.
