Overview

Tour Napier’s distinctive Art Deco heritage in style on this vintage car tour of the city. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported back to the 1930s as you drive past some of the city’s must-see buildings in a vintage Packard car. Your local guide will tell you all about the earthquake of 1931 and the Art Deco architecture that emerged afterwards, so you can just relax in the back seat.

What to Expect
Discover Napier's Art Deco heritage in style in a luxurious 1930s vintage car. Your journey will take in Napier's famous Art Deco Quarter, historic Port Ahuriri and a delightfully quaint Art Deco residential suburb.

You will visit the Napier Municipal Theatre, named in 2013 as one of the Top 10 Art Deco buildings in the world, and the National Tobacco Company building, one of the most photographed buildings in New Zealand.

Tours depart from the Art Deco Centre, although central Napier pickups can be arranged at no additional charge.

A luxurious 1930s vintage Packard car is the ultimate way to experience Art Deco Napier. Learn of the cities destruction during the 1931 earthquake and the amazing rebuild.  See why Napier is world famous for its Art Deco architecture.  

Tours are provided daily by trained local volunteers who love to share Napier's Art Deco heritage.
