A great intro to Napier

I really enjoyed my Art Deco tour of Napier. It was a great way to explore the city centre, to learn some of the history fo the area and to get a bit of a feel for how important the architecture is to the community. It was informative and fun - thanks team!

New appreciation

Having been to Napier before , wondered why the Art Deco heading , but after 90 odd minutes walking the streets now gives a greater appreciation to its history and why Napier is the town it is today - thought would be quite board but was to the contrary and really enjoyed it

Napier Art Deco Tour

Chris, the volunteer guide was fantastic at explaining the history and the features of Art Deco and was very patient with our young daughter. Recommend doing this tour to give you some more insight. The museum across the street has a great exhibition on the earthquake too.
