Ross, our guide was first class and gave a great tour. This even included a picnic of wine and cheese atop a hill overlooking Napier! Napier itself is a hidden gem that has to be seen. The buildings, cars, and most of all the people were great. A really memorable day in the sunshine. Ross thank you for a special day.

This tour wasn't our original choice in Napier, but we were so glad we got to do this one instead. Again, we had a most excellent driver, and he showed us places in Napier that we'd have never seen on the other tour. Napier's Art Deco area is a site for more time, but driver gave us a good flavor and history of the area. All the lookout points were amazing, and we got some outstanding photos. The last stop at Silky Oaks for some chocolate samples and purchases was the 'frosting on the cake'. Will always do our tours through Viator, as everyone of them went well. Thanks.

Very clear and precise directions to get from our cruise ship to bus pickup point. Being in a small group gave a very personal experience of attractions in Napier. Stopovers for chocolate,
Ice cream, Cheese and wine were a nice surprise in addition to the art deco attractions in Napier.

Tour guide ROSS THE MOST AMAZING HOST!!!! After a fantastic tour, a picnic lunch in the vineyard to create the best tour we've ever experienced. Wine, cheese, crackers, fruit, overlooking the vineyard. such a personal touch.

Visit to the Mission Winery, Art Deco National Tobacco Company, Clive Square Gardens, Bluff Hill Lookout, Chocolate shop, Eskdale War Memorial Church, off rode ride to the top of the vineyard with magnificent views and the ultimate finally was the picnic lunch.

Keep up the personal touch, ROSS. It makes a difference.

This was a trip on a small excursion company and they offered some things you might not get on a larger excursion. The owner usually takes people himself but he was not available so we had Bruce. Bruce was waiting for us at the dock with a sign. Easy to spot. The highlight was that he had a picnic lunch which we ate under the gazebo of a winery. It was a cheese/fruit/cracker picnic with wine from the local winery. One thing to keep in mind is that on a small 11 passenger van, the on/off is much quicker than on a large bus. The owner has somehow overbooked and had an extra couple. He came to the pick up spot in his own car and gave them a very personal tour that included a visit to his house. This was a very customer friendly company that wants people to remember the experience.

The tour was very good. The group was small - only 6. The guide, Frank, was very knowledgeable and provided both interesting and out of the way perspectives on Napier and Hawke and #39;s Bay. Mission winery, and a fruit orchard with excellent ice cream were great, but a hilltop picnic was outstanding.

Great tour, Ross was a great guide! Enjoyed the picnic on the mountain the most. Not enough time in this port - cruise itinerary issue.

An excellent small group tour of the town and district. The tour included a wine and cheese morning tea. Ross was an informative and very friendly tour guide. An excellent tour for adults, children may be bored as there was little in the tour for the younger generation.

Ross was a brilliant tour host with so much local knowledge and his own normally inaccessible places. We had a great day which included a beautiful winery, amazing views, a tour of the town, our own private view point with cheese and wine and a stop for the best ice cream on the way back. It was just great to hear from a local about the important things in the area.

This was an unbelievable experience, it was the best tour on our 14 day cruise. Ross was experienced, personable, and warm/friendly. This was beyond a 5 star if there was such a rating.

Our guide, Ross, was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and helpful. The bus was a bit small and couldn't see all the architecture as described by the guide. Would have been nice to be able to get out and take some photos. At the end of the tour, Ross took us to the top of a mountain overlooking the city and sea and we enjoyed some wine and cheese. Lovely thing to do and a great way to end the tour. Ross was also to be commended when one in our party left his camera on the van. Local personnel at the cruise terminal called the contact number and he turned right around and returned to the ship with the errant camera. Highly recommend this tour

Great tour, only a small group. A fascinating way to get to know an area. Our Guide was very knowledgeable and informative. The final touch of having wine and cheese in a vineyard was awesome.

Ian was a great guide. He went above and beyond with a stop at an antique car shop. The final stop was a wine and cheese stop on a hill top. I highly recommend this tour
