60-Minute Napier Deco City Tour by Vintage Car

An enjoyable light-hearted introduction to Art Deco Napier.

This one hour tour is a great chance to experience the splendour of travelling in a beautifully restored vintage car. Sit back and imagine you are being driven through Napier in its heyday of the 1930's, with it's immaculately maintained buildings and your chauffeur dressed in their Art Deco finery.

Learn about Napier's remarkable history of devastation and rebirth; the earthquake that shaped the city we live in today and the stories of the people who make it such an interesting little city to visit.

Our guides are passionate about what they do and have free rein to design their own tours so that you get the very best of them. There is also limited flexibility, meaning that if you wish to visit a certain area or wish to stop somewhere to take photos then you simply ask your chauffeur.
The time is yours, and should you wish to extend then that can usually be arranged.

Napier Highlights by Open Top Vintage Car

Our entry level bespoke tour, your chauffeur will show you the beauty of Napier's Art Deco buildings and then you have the option of visiting a local winery, sampling some local chocolate or take the chance to see the Hooters Showroom, a must-see for all vintage car lovers.

You can let us know your preference in advance otherwise your chauffeur will discuss the options to see what you fancy on the day.

Please note that this tour does not include wine tasting fees which will need to be paid directly to the winery on the day. On busy cruise ship days as many as half of the Hooters vintage vehicles will be out on tour so there will be a few empty spaces in the showroom, but still plenty of automobilia to see and stories to hear.

It was just me, so I hired the car (with driver) for the hour and had an amazing time. I had been to Napier 5 times during the year, but taking time out to do a tour like this was fun, informative and so interesting. I would highly recommend the tour even if you have been to Napier before and my driver Bob Rob was briliant, gave the information in such a wonderful manner that you really wanted to know all about the history.....absolutey 100% recommend.

A very enjoyable day, and such a great way to see Napier. We were picked up by the very dapper Glyn in the beautifully restored 1927 Buick. Glyn gave us a great guided tour with expert commentary on the local history and interesting information about the wineries. We were celebrating my husbands’ 60th Birthday and this was a memorable afternoon for us with Glyn allowing us to take it "at our pace". We highly recommend Glyn, and thanks to Ana for organising the visit to include the Silky Oaks Chocolates, the Zeffer Cider and the lovely Mission Wine Estate, all excellent choices. We would highly recommend this for any travellers to Napier as a Must do.

Glyn was a great tour guide for our afternoon tour of Napier. Interesting information about the city and wineries and enjoyed the 1929 Buick experience. We were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary and was a memorable afternoon for us. Highly recommend Glyn and the Buick!

Excellent. We opted for the bus with Bob. A real character and story teller. He gave us a great fun trip around this beautiful town. Money well spent. The vehicles were spotless. The drivers/guides dressed in traditional clothing. A must do if you want to see the town and beyond. We learned so much in that hour.
