(Please note price is $425 per vehicle which seats up to four people) Wazza brings stories alive as he narrates Napier's past and present. In a modern car, you will journey from town to country. Hear of a vibrant coastal city brought to an earth-shattering standstill by the famous 1931 earthquake. Recount the tales of personal loss and tragedy. This resilient city rebuilt to become known as the self-proclaimed Art Deco Capital of the world. Wazza will take you to locations with panoramic views that you will not find without local knowledge. We pass through an orchard before experiencing local hospitality at Wazza and Fiona’s family home on a small country block. We grow our own fruit and vegetables. We will talk about living on the block, then enjoy a coffee or tea & take in the ocean views surrounded by orchards kissing the coastline. Now we turn the clock back 50 years to the automotive golden era, our next mode of transport is a classic 1966 Pontiac sedan. Many hours were spent bringing this beauty back to life. We cruise back into the city with the radio playing old songs and visit the art Deco suburb.
Hi, I’m Wazza, I appreciate nature and life's simple pleasures. I grew up in Napier owning and operating a specialist mechanical and rental car business. My passion for Napier’s history and Art Deco heritage led me to become a local tour guide. Through traveling, I developed an understanding of what it takes to showcase a city, the past and the present. Combining a Napier city tour with a rural experience and an invitation to join us on our country block creates for you a truly unique experience. Let's meet and get started.
