Opened our eyes and minds to specialness of Napier!

Highlighting Downtown Napier's transformation in the 1930's after the 1931 earthquake destroyed the city, then the recognition in the 1980s that the architecture was outstanding, the tour gave us deep appreciation of the special qualities of the district. Must Do This Walking Tour!!!

90 minutes well spent

The opportunity of this special Napier experience should be taken up by visitors and locals alike. Our guide, Derek, had the unique ability, despite his obvious deep knowledge, to provide a clear, fascinating story of the Napier rebuild using the buildings as props. Not too much. Not too little. Well done Derek.

Thank you John for a lovely review. I shall forward Derek your compliment - thank you.

Amazing history
Gaylene_E

Video was a great start and a very cool walk through the city. Guide had good knowledge however did not really engage and connect with the group. A little concern around standing on what we thought were footpaths and they were in fact roads. Would totally recommend this tour.

Jenny_V

We have been on many city walking tours around the world. The Napier Art Deco Guided walk was excellent. Jo did a great job and the headsets meant we could hear her clearly without being drowned out by traffic noise. I found it interesting and informative. My husband, who is a structural engineer, rated it very highly.
