About
An enjoyable light-hearted introduction to Art Deco Napier. This one hour tour is a great chance to experience the splendour of travelling in a beautifully restored vintage car. Sit back and imagine you are being driven through Napier in its heyday of the 1930's, with it's immaculately maintained buildings and your chauffeur dressed in their Art Deco finery. Learn about Napier's remarkable history of devastation and rebirth; the earthquake that shaped the city we live in today and the stories of the people who make it such an interesting little city to visit. Our guides are passionate about what they do and have free rein to design their own tours so that you get the very best of them. There is also limited flexibility, meaning that if you wish to visit a certain area or wish to stop somewhere to take photos then you simply ask your chauffeur. The time is yours, and should you wish to extend then that can usually be arranged.

Fantastic hour spent with Hooters Vintage car company
May 2021
Fantastic tour with Bob in a beautiful vintage car. Bob had a great sense of humour and great knowledge. We loved every moment of the tour and were wrapped up warmly in the blankets provided so we could have the top down on the car. We have all been to Napier before but we would all do this tour again! Great to do the tour at the beginning of your Napier stay. Definitely recommend Hooters and Bob.
Tours make great presents for people too.

Jan 2021 • Family
Our autistic daughter loves the car BRUM so we decided to do a vintage car tour. Bob Rob was an amazing guide and told us all about the Earthquake back in 1931 and what happened to Napier. I honestly wouldnt have known half of what he told us if we hadnt of done the tour!

We were shown around by Bob and he is the most kindest soul who was passionate about his city and was not at all hesitant in taking our pictures. He was very patient and gracious. If you book through hooters, ask for Bob.You might get the same amazing experience as we did 😊

- love, Preet and Peter

An incredible light hearted way to see the Art Deco Capital...
Dec 2020
It was just me, so I hired the car (with driver) for the hour and had an amazing time. I had been to Napier 5 times during the year, but taking time out to do a tour like this was fun, informative and so interesting. I would highly recommend the tour even if you have been to Napier before and my driver Bob Rob was briliant, gave the information in such a wonderful manner that you really wanted to know all about the history.....absolutey 100% recommend.

A must-do thing
Mar 2020
We should have done this first thing instead of in a rush at the last moment. So much information and went to see parts of Napier that we would not have thought of visiting otherwise. Fantastic Hucks Mobile (can’t remember the exact year of construction, but in the 20’s) caused a lot of envious stares. And our driver was amusing and very knowledgeable. Thanks very much.

Fantastic experience.
Whilst in Napier, myself the wife and the brother in law decided to treat ourselves to a city tour in a vintage car. And what a treat! We managed to get the car I was hoping for (1920s blue buick) and our tour guide was Ginny, an absolutely wonderful and friendly lady. She took us around the city showing us all the art deco features Napier is known for. Not only that she told us the history of Napier, the tragedy the city endured and the spirit the city had. It was a fantastically informative and enjoyable experience.
We highly recommend anyone to treat themselves to a Hooters tour if you find yourselves in Napier.
We will definitely be returning to New Zealand again and this is on the top of the to do list!

Great Shore Excursion

We were fortunate to get Ginny for our Tour - she was very friendly, and also very informative about the history and facts of Napier. A great Tour Guide!!
Old 'Betsy', the Wlllys vintage car was well preserved and we had a lot of fun as we saw the sights of Napier.
We would highly recommend Ginny and Hooters if you want to see, and hear about Napier.
