Private Shore Excursion: Napier Highlights in a Vintage Car
From US$375.54
Overview
Discover Napier by vintage car on a private tour that’s customized to your schedule and interests. With a personal driver to greet you after you step off the shuttle, you’ll trade a generic group itinerary for a tour that explores the things that interest you: see Art Deco landmarks, sip local vintages at New Zealand’s oldest winery, check out classic cars, and taste local chocolates before returning to your boat.
What to Expect

Step back in time with an easygoing tour of Napier and beyond. When your ship pulls into port, take the free shuttle to the i-SITE Visitor Information Centre where a personal chauffeur dressed in old-fashioned attire will greet you. Hop into your 4-passenger vintage vehicle, and plan your tour with your driver.

Choose from some of the following options or make up your own itinerary on the day of your shore excursion:

Take a city tour, a must-do for a perfect introduction to Napier. Check out the Art Deco highlights, with plenty of photo opportunities including the National Tobacco Company Building.

Head to the Mission Estate Winery, New Zealand's oldest winery. Even if you’re not a wine aficionado it's well worth a visit. Church Road Winery, Crossroads Winery, and Moana Park are just some of the other top picks.

The Silky Oak Chocolates factory offers great tasting for old and young alike, while the Hooters Showroom is a must for all motoring enthusiasts to get a look at a collection of classic and vintage racing cars. Or, head out of the hustle and bustle of Napier and take in some of the countryside on a scenic drive.

No matter your selection, your driver ensures you have a fantastic time on your 3-hour private shore excursion of Napier at Hawke's Bay.

Tour of Napier and surrounds in a 1953 Citroen driven by Bob

1 hour tour with expert commentary by Bob whose knowledge of Napier's history is extraordinary. Wonderful old Citroen with beautiful interior was very comfortable. We highly recommend Bob to anyone considering taking a tour of beautiful art deco Napier.
