“Self drive tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

A little frustrating as the map is not to scale and you need either a good GPS or another map. Otherwise informative.

“art deco lovers......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We booked a walking tour of the Art Deco co-ordinated by the Art Deco Trust...definately worth your while as you gain knowledge and appreciation of the story how Napier had such reborn city in art deco (original) design. Thank goodness for the Trust, history has been retained and valued.

“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We used an Art Deco walking tour ( Barry was our guide) and it was great. Walking is the best way to see all the architecture, coupled with local history and Barry's dry humour.
Good shop associated with the Trust.
Recommended.
