Full description
After having been collected form the cruise terminal or picked up from your accommodation, your tour of Napier begins. Expect passers-by to stop and wave as you cruise Napier's world-famous Art Deco city in a beautiful and authentic vintage car.

Hear the tragic story of the city's destruction by an earthquake in 1931, and subsequent rebuild of the city as the Art Deco capital of the world. Following that, visit the Bluff Hill Lookout for spectacular views, with weather and traffic conditions permitting.

Later, cruise the historic fishing village of Ahuriri and stop at the famous National Tobacco Co. building. Your tour finally wraps up as you see the Art Deco houses of Napier's Marewa area, before your guide returns you to your tour pickup point.
