Full description
After meeting with your local guide at the Napier Aquarium on Marine Parade, your guided shore excursion will begin. Throughout your tour, you will view Napier's Art-Deco city center from a high-roof, tall and windowed mini bus.

You will first stop and photograph your ship from the Bluff Hill lookout, before viewing the 14 square kilometers of land reclaimed after the 1931 earthquake from the terrace of your guide's house. You will then visit the Grand Mission complex, which was established in 1851.

Afterwards, there will be time to buy chocolates at Silky Oak Chocolates, before you view the historic and picturesque Esk Valley Memorial Church. You will then take in the grand panorama from the top of the Seafield Farms private road, before finally enjoying a complimentary cheese board with a glass of wine amongst the vines at your guide's private vineyard venue. Your tour will then conclude as you return to the cruise ship transfer station.
