Art Deco Highlights Vintage Car Tour
A 1 hour luxury tour of Napier’s Art Deco highlights
The original town of Napier was levelled by a dramatic and devastating earthquake in 1931 but was completely rebuilt within a remarkable 2 year period in the contemporary style of the times; Art Deco. Relive the glamour and style of the jazz era with a luxurious vintage car tour.
You’ll be met your driver, in Art Deco costume, who will provide a fascinating commentary as you are driven in style, through Napier and surrounding areas. You’ll learn about the earthquake that destroyed the city, hear stories of the people that led the rebuild, and discover the Art Deco style. En route you will stop in Ahuriri and visit one of the most photographed buildings in New Zealand, the National Tobacco Company building.
You’ll return to the Art Deco Centre or your central Napier hotel filled with a new appreciation for the city and the people who survived New Zealand’s worst natural disaster in modern times.
All tours include a complimentary viewing of our 20 minute earthquake movie "The Day that Changed the Bay"
