Tour Details

This tour will allow you to unlock New Zealandís best kept secret - Napier and the greater Hawkes Bay area.

This tour features some of the best scenery in New Zealand as you drive through mixed farming country. Enjoy sights of sheep, cattle and deer farming, as well as orchards, vineyards, market gardens and much more while on your journey.

Hawkes Bay is noted as the Gourmet Food and Wine region of New Zealand. It is the second largest and oldest wine producing region, producing mainly Bordeaux style wines. You will drive through the most scenic parts of this land on some of the most picturesque roads in New Zealand. Eventually, you will come upon the highest peak that can be reached by car, Te Mata Peak, for a fantastic 360-degree view of the area and beyond. You will stop for photo opportunities as we traverse the scenic Hawkes Bay roads.

The tour continues with an informative drive through the main streets of Hastings City. You will hear some of the stories behind New Zealandís largest natural disaster, the 1931 Napier (Hawkes Bay) earthquake, and why the cities of Hastings and Napier were rebuilt in the popular styles of yesteryear.

From Hastings, the tour takes a scenic drive back to Napier to soak up the Art Deco style in and around Napier. You will also visit the National Tobacco Building and enjoy a drive through a mostly 1930ís Art Deco housing estate before ascending a fantastic city lookout. Here you will take in sights of Hawkes Bay, Cape Kidnappers, and beyond.

At the conclusion of the tour, you will have the option to do some shopping or just walk the main streets in the central city with your camera before returning to your shuttle. You will also receive a small souvenir to remember your time spent in Napier.
