I am an expatriate Englishman - I moved to New Zealand with my partner late in 2010 and have to say I love living in the beautiful Art Deco city of Napier, on the East coast of Napier's North Island.
I have been running tours and weddings professionally in the Hawkes Bay area for several years now and thoroughly enjoy what I do. I am a fully trained Art Deco Tour Guide and can wax lyrical about Napier's world-famous Art Deco City if asked, but I am also experienced in running winery, scenic and general sightseeing tours around the Hawkes Bay area.
My previous background was in IT Management for a couple of major High Street Banks in the UK - and we all know how that ended, but I promise it wasnt my fault!

This is definitely the tour for those that just want a personal and relaxed outing with a true local. Paul was very accomodating and took us to some great spots and sights around town. With wine tasting, chocolate factory and lunch stop, it was a great day for all of us. ThAnkyou.
