I cannot recommend John highly enough! He was so knowledgeable and personable. We wanted to alter a couple of things on the tour and he personalized the tour to meet our desires. After he met he he even altered our lunch plans to something he felt would be more to our liking. If you are thinking of a tour in Napier, please book John! You will not be disappointed
