Board a coach and get acquainted with Napier on this hour-long city orientation tour.

Learn how Napier came to be hailed as the Art Deco City after being rebuilt in the early 1930s due to a major earthquake. The new buildings reflected the style of the times--stripped Classical, Spanish Revival, art deco, and some even incorporating unique Maori motifs.

Follow the Napier seashore along Marine Parade as your driver relates the city’s history and stories, including tales of the devastating 1931 quake.

Pass the sunken gardens, the National Aquarium, the Spirit of Napier, and art deco buildings.

Continue through Napier’s suburbs for views of the city and Hawke’s Bay, including the Marewa District, noted for its many "deco" homes and superb gardens.
