Learn the Art Deco Napier History, Savour some Wines and Ales
Join Maggie H, your driver/guide for this very popular tour.
You will travel in a air conditioned mini coach to explore the very best of Napier's history. You will visit all the famous points of interest, be driven through the central city streets where the big coaches can not go, visit lookouts from Napier hill, and you will have the opportunity to take photographs throughout the tour.
After visiting the city, you will visit at least two wineries, where you will have the opportunity to sample some of our beautiful Hawkes Bay wines. We will visit the Mission Estate, the oldest winery in N. Z. Maybe a tasting here!
We will drive through a wine growing region on rural roads before heading to a local Ale House where you will receive a tray of drinks (6 per couple or 3 per person) of your choice from the selected Beers and Cider. A great place to sit back, relax, and enjoy. Platters or nibbles available if required.
