Private tour guide Margaret

Margaret H.

Napier, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

My name is Margaret H, but I introduce myself as Maggie and I prefer that.

As Maggie sounds a fun loving happy character (and that is me) I'm sure we will certainly enjoy our short time as tourist and Guide for the day.
Along with my husband we operate various tours in and around the Hawkes Bay region which include the Napier sightseeing, Art Deco history, Wine, Wine Brewery and Cider, and Hawkes Bay region itself taking in the famous Te Mata Peak.

I love sharing my history knowledge of Napier and showing you around our fantastic city which features the famous Art Deco heritage. As I am so talented, and able to talk and drive at the same time, I give a running commentary of the history of the 1931 earthquake up to the life as it is today. Yes, I do use a microphone so all can hear.

On the Art Deco city tours, we will stop at many places of interest to the tourist and you will be given the opportunity to take photos of the beautiful architecture which the Art Deco heritage is famous for. If we are on a rural outing, you will also have the opportunity to photograph our landscape as we leave the city centre and travel through the region where you will see various animals, orchards of fruit and veges, acres and acres of vineyards, and maybe visit our Te Mata Peak. If you have chosen a wine tour, you will get the opportunity to see and taste at two of our famous wineries.

The tour itineraries, we present as a guide for the area are based on our experience and local knowledge. We know the areas that stand out in the region and aim to 'show off' these highlights to our clients on the day.

Our Mediterranean weather allows us to enjoy the great outdoors and show this region off approximately all year around.

I am very passionate about our region and would love to share my local knowledge with my clients who appreciate history, architecture, and the outdoors.

I do have an addiction of collecting English bone china, so if time permits a quick visit to my home to show you my huge museum collection of china which I hire out for functions, weddings, baby showers, bridal showers etc.

I am very proud of our city and its history which adds to my passion of the 30's - 50's era, and I often dress in Art Deco attire.

Credentials

We have owned and operated our sightseeing business over a decade. I am a very experienced driver/guide in the Napier and Hawkes Bay Region.
I hold a Passenger endorsed commercial driver's license.
