Mike was great fun and a great singer too! Nice to spend time with someone with real local insight. We sat in front and had great conversation, questions, and answers about the wide variety of areas, towns, and sights on this tour. Highly recommended. Really liked the trip to the top of the mountain park!

We could not wait til it was over so we could do something worthwhile...we always like to learn something new about the place we are visiting...learned absolutely nothing...I could have given a more colorful is a sheep ..there’s a sheep...oh usually there are deer here ...not today...went the Hawke’s Bay tour....boring....when people asked questions the driver did not answer...I give it 1 star as we did drive down a street of Art Deco houses....forgot souvenir til we mentioned it...the bus needs to have glass ceiling as he mentioned ziggaret roof lines at last second but we couldn’t see them from the van...we were never let out of van to see things except at top of hill when it was raining and wind blowing...or for a rest room break....when it was over he did not help people from van even though 1 woman had a cane....

Nice tour of Hawkes Bay and Napier. We still had plenty of time to explore Napier on our own. Option to drop you off at numerous locations in the city upon completion of the tour was really appreciated..

We were on a cruise and the schedule changed due to the weather and sea conditions. The tour company were aware and were very good at rearranging the shore excursion.
Napier was a pretty art-deco town with lots of great building and history. Our guide was very knowledgeable, however, he was not the most upbeat of guides and didn't actually introduce himself to us at any stage. There were only about 10 people on the bus but there was no 'buzz'.
He was able to tell us a lot of the history of the area despite being from England and he obviously had a passion for architecture, however, the mini-bus we travelled in was not suitable for the tour. Almost everything the guide described as we went around the town required us to be able to look upwards but the restricted view in the vehicle meant we could not see half of what was being described.
The only part of the tour that we really enjoyed was the visit to Te Mata Peak, stunning views.

Truly an enjoyable trip with great sightseeing thru the wine region and up to the highest point possible. Then back to Napier to view the Art Deco buildings , the driver was totally engrossed in his knowledge of the earthquake of 1931 and the aftermath that resulted in the building of the Art Deco style of architecture.

This was a great tour. We were on a cruise and booked the tour through Viator. We had no problem locating the tour operator and found the tour to be very informative, enjoyable, scenic and our guide was very knowledgeable, especially in relation to Napiers Art Deco history. Kathy
