Made it all good

We didn’t get to go on A GRAND DAY OUT because of a mix up in communication about starting times. I called the emergency number, explained what happened and the gentleman offered to try and catch up with the tour which we declined as we booked another tour. This afternoon the owner called, he was aware of what had happened and immediately refunded my charges. Very pleasant to deal with. This is real customer service

Excellent tour andguide

This outing was spectacular, but made more so by John’s warmth and knowledge. The stop in Clive Square was a great way to get oriented, we toured a residential neighborhood, then to the beautiful winery which allowed me to pick up some gifts to take home. The ride into the mountains was awesome and the breathtaking views were a treat. Our lunch stop was not only delicious but a little oasis in the middle of what seemed like nowhere. A stop at the chocolate store and honey educational center capped off a splendid day. I would do it all over again as it was a little taste of everything in the region. Thank you, John!

A great day!

We had an excellent tour with Paul in the Napier area. We booked this tour independently from the cruise ship and saved a bundle. Locating the tour starting point was simple it was right at the drop-off used by the ship. Paul was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the area. The tour was exactly as outlined in the brochure no surprises. On the day of our tour, there was only one other couple on board. This is a small tour listing I think the most Paul takes on tour is 8. The van was comfortable and Paul is an excellent driver. He shares the history of Napier every step of the way. This tour is priced right for sure compared to the exorbitant ship prices to travel with 30 to 40 people.

A Grand Day Out Indeed!

We took a 6 hour tour with Viator and our guide John was fantastic.
We learned about the history of Napier and the struggles they incurred from a 1931 earthquake. The end result was the creation of Art Deco buildings. Beautiful.
Off to Mission Hill Vineyards for sampling’s and learn about there wines and the area.
We went for samples at a chocolate factory and then off to an apiary. Lots of bees and samples to enjoy.
Next to the Te Mata lookout which offered beautiful views.
Highly recommend.
