My wife and I will be spending 1 day in Napier on a cruise in early February, and we are trying to decide if we should simply enjoy wandering through the city or take one of the tours offered by the cruise line. When we looked at the description of the tours they didn't really grab us, but perhaps that's just because we don't know enough about Napier. I'd really appreciate your comments/opinions on any of the tours listed below. If you think it would be better to just spend the day wandering through the city, where would you recommend?
(A) Trip to Summerll Sheep Station, Cape Kidnappers (for gannet wathcing), brief view of art deco district.
(B) Clifton Station (farm visit), Hawke's Bay, Tuki Tuki Valley, Te Mata Peak, Strawberry Patch.
(C) Te Mata Peak, Hastings (Pernel Orchard), Silky Oaks chocolates, brief view of art deco district.
(D) Art Deco tour: National Tobacco bldg, Marewa, Art Deco Trust Building -- walking tour.
