About Hawkes Bay Scenic Tours Ltd
We are a family owned and operated Local Tour company. We specialize in private local tours, including Cruise Ship Shore Excursions. These tours offer Sightseeing, Art Deco, City history, also Wine and Brewery Tours. This is truly a fantastic region to visit. Napier was completely destroyed in 1931 by a 7.8 earthquake, and rebuilt in the style of the day, mainly Art Deco and Spanish Mission. Napier, along with the Hawkes Bay region, has been a secret for too long, discover it today with us.

Cannot thank John enough for organising such an enjoyable wine tour for our group. We had a beautiful day for it and John ensured that we made the most of it. I have had multiple comments from my friends all saying how worthwhile the experience was and how much they enjoyed not only the venues, but also John's company and listening to his commentary. I will be recommending to friends and family.

John was excellent to work with. Our group of 8 had a fantastic day out! The tour started right outside our Airbnb, then onto a few wineries and breweries. Between stops John explained some great background of Napier and Art Deco. Everything organised for us, we just had to show up and enjoy our drinks. Can not recommend Hawkes Bay Scenic Tours enough! We’ll be back :)

We went with John at Scenic Tours for a wine, beer and cider tasting and had no regrets what so ever. John was an amazing guide very knowledgeable about Napier and its history and art deco era. He was more than just the sober driver for the day he went above and beyond to ensure our group had a great time!! Would recommend to everybody.
