Discover Napier’s history by joining this scenic drive combined with a guided walking tour through Napier’s unique art deco district. A specialist guide from the Art Deco trust will board your coach from the pier and provide commentary while you enjoy a drive along scenic Marine Parade and through some of the hilltop residential suburbs for excellent views of the city and the homes of the people who live here. Continue through the suburb of Marewa where many of the best art deco homes and gardens can be seen. Enjoy a twenty minute video showcasing the earthquake that changed Napier before heading out on an hour-long guided walk of the city. Tour order may vary and make sure to wear comfortable shoes.
Both on the walking tour and on the motorcoach, there are good opportunities for photography, especially of art deco subjects.
Don't forget to bring along additional local currency/credit cards for optional purchases such as refreshments and souvenirs. To make your day as enjoyable as possible, please ensure that you wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat and jacket, and bring along some sunscreen and bottled water.
