Tragic earthquake resulted in beautiful town
Nov 2019
Our tour director arranged this 90 minute walk, highlighting Napier's Art Deco reconstruction after the devastating 1931 Hawke's Bay earthquake. Our guide, Peter, showed us the more prominent buildings, explained particular design points and shared the human stories behind the city's recovery. While most of the tour was from the outside, in a few cases, we actually entered the structure, which was often even more impressive. A wonderful and worthwhile experience.

Great way to see Napier
Apr 2019
We fell in love with this beautiful city as we walked around it. David was an amazing guide and we loved how he shared so many interesting stories with us. We would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who comes to Napier and wants to learn more about its history and architecture. We only had a short time in Napier but enjoyed every minute of this tour. Thanks again to our guide David - hope to see you at the Art Deco festival in 2020.

Just the tour we wanted
Mar 2019 • Couples
What a wonderful tour to learn about the Art Deco style and to see the magnificient internal structures of these classic buildings. This is a tour for all we are tired drive-by viewing of interesting sites. We wanted something more depth, and this tour is definitely not disappointing. Lynn was a perfect tour guide; she was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic in her explanations and in pointing out the fine details of the AD style that have been preserved in many of current buildings.

Napier A work of living Art
Apr 2018 • Couples
What an amazing place for the beauty of the buildings through to the surrounding area. Napier city itself has many heritage style Deco buildings which have been looked after and add to the ambience of the area. There are a number of nice cafe's and eateries as well to feed the inner being.

An excellent walking tour
Jan 2018 • Couples
We really enjoyed our walk around Napier, learning about all the different styles of Art Deco. We also found the earthquake section of the museum opposite really interesting and complemented the tour by giving a context to all the re building in 1931. Fascinating.

If you love architecture this one’s for you
Mar 2018 • Friends
The Art Deco Trust guided tour was fantastic with our guide Andy. This is an exceptional way to see first hand the city’s contribution to Art Deco architecture. The walk is about 2 hours with a film introduction to set the scene with a short film with coffee/tea at the conclusion. The city is flat therefore the walk is easy & at a good pace. Headphones provide the guide’s clear commentary without anyone having to shout! The CBD is an exceptional contribution to the various styles of Art Deco with all the characteristics on display. Do this one!

A lovely town walk
Our private tour allowed us to see small deco features you wouldn't see in a larger group. We were able to see the renovated theatre, inside the bank and old newspaper offices. The town has been cognizant to retain the style when updating or restoring buildings. Stained glass features and artistic doors are found everywhere. The tour started with a short film on the earthquake and subsequent rebuilding of Napier. Our guide added to the history lesson with stories of the building owners and general life in the area.
