Discover the secrets of Art Deco Napier and beyond with a knowledgeable local private guide


The 6 HOUR "Napier City and Environs Excursion" includes the majority of the Napier City Highlights Tour followed by a wine tasting and relaxing platter lunch at a beautiful vineyard.
We then get off the beaten track and drive through the famous Gimblett Gravels wine region on the way to the fabulous and panoramic Te Mata Peak. Learn about the Maori Legend of this stunning location, which stands 399 metres above the Heretaunga Plains, and experience the most incredible views of Hawke's Bay.
We then visit the beautiful "Birdwoods Gallery and Sweet Shop" for complimentary Devonshire Tea before the tour casually makes its way back to Napier City via some of Hawke's Bay's wonderful countryside. I can drop you off at the City for a bit of shopping or to the ship via the shuttles.

This journey will inspire, entertain and delight.
