There are not enough superlatives to describe our tour with John! Exploring Napier with John quickly placed Napier on my list of "where do I want to live if I ever move to New Zealand?" I can't think of a better way to get a spectacular overview of the Art Deco heritage, the wine growing region, and unique art. We bought a sculpture at a local gallery and are enjoying reminiscing about our wonderful New Zealand trip every time we look at it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marjorie It's was my pleasure to show you around Hawke's Bay. Glad the sculpture arrived safely. Best Wishes John

John makes a great tour guide because he loves his country and is proud to show it off. His tour included a drive around Napier, a tour of the countryside and stops at a sculpture garden (a must see) and craft store where we saw a demonstration of how the flax plant is used to make clothing and other decorations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Geoffrey for your constructive comments. Yes with so many highlights over a large area it can be a bit tight for time at each stop. I agree that Birdwoods is a must and I will check more closely with future clients on tour priorities to ensure they are met. Kind regards, John
