Private tour guide John

John H.

Napier, New Zealand

My name is John and along with my wife Margaret, we proudly own and operate quality local Sightseeing and Wine and Brewery tours in modern air-conditioned minibuses.

I have been operating tours for over 25 years and our Trip Advisor reviews tell you why.

I am New Zealand born and proud to live in the Napier region which I consider, the best part of New Zealand. Hawkes Bay is famous for its world class wineries, many varieties of fruit orchards, breath taking scenery and Napier for its famous Art Deco heritage. Hawkes Bay is promoted as 'The Gourmet Food and Wine Region of New Zealand'.

We are very passionate about our region and love to share our local knowledge with our clients.

I, John, started my career in the tourism business, 1989 with a passenger service luxury stretched limousine. I set high standards with my clients and I certainly exceeded their expectations. I have continued those standards through to my current tour operating business or over fifteen years along with my wife Margaret who assists myself as an operator as well.

We both really enjoy meeting different people and making them feel they have left Hawkes Bay with a greater understanding of our unique history regarding the 1931 earthquake, the re-birth of Napier City itself, the general knowledge of the surrounding district of Hawkes Bay, and the Maori legend of Te Mata Peak.
