This is an excellent way to learn about why Napier is built in the Art Deco style and about the meaning of the different Art Deco motifs. The Art Deco centre itself is a treasure trove of gifts, clothes, hats, books, trivia and objects d’art all related to this style of architecture and decoration.
The walk self is conducted by a volunteer and is preceded by a short film about the 1931 earthquake that destroyed Napier. The film includes personal memories of survivors who were children at the time of the quake and these are very moving. The volunteer takes a small group of walkers around central Napier pointing out significant buildings, shops, restaurants and hotels and giving information and anecdotes about them.
I really enjoyed the walk and it helped to make sense of a town that is like no other in NZ.

This was a very informative walking tour. Starts with a short video about the earthquake which impacted Napier and resulted in many buildings in Napier being rebuilt in the Art Deco style. Then a tour of the main Art Deco buildings in the town. The walk is leisurely paced, mostly on flat surfaces and not too far. Excellent too if you want to learn about the different Art Deco styles. The Art Deco Trust has a number of Art Deco items for sale - the proceeds of which assist in maintaining the Art Deco heritage. Definitely recommend.

We enjoyed the hour long tour of Napier’s Art Deco heritage. Our guide was informative and answered questions. It gave us insights and things to look out for.
Running as a charity is not easy but I think the cost was a bit steep compared to reviews of past times when it was free. $24 a bit too much for what it was but it was nevertheless good and worth doing

Napier is a beautiful city with a historic art deco centre built in the 1930's after the major earthquake. The art deco buildings are well maintained and you can even go inside working buildings to see the interior decoration.
The walk is guided by volunteers from the Art Deco Trust with radio headsets giving you excellent information from well trained locals.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one and a half hour walking tour with guide from arts trust. Not only did she cover the designs on outside of buildings but also took us inside a local bank and the telegraph office to see internal Art Deco features. Good communication equipment kept whole group advised.

This was an excellent tour for learning both important NZ history as well as the many aspects of art deco architecture represented in Napier. The guide does a great job balancing the two as you walk around the town, taking in the most important and historically significant examples of deco architecture. Remembering that this town was re-born during a difficult time in world history (the Great Depression) following a deadly earthquake makes the tour experience even more poignant. Definitely recommend!

My wife & I went on this walking tour this morning. Unfortunately it was raining and as they provided umbrellas it was not too bad. This certainly is The Art Deco Capital of New Zealand. The history was explained first by watching a 30 minutes movie about the earthquake and its consequences. This was then followed by a walking tour where we had earphones to wear so that we could her the guide’s commentary. There certainly is a lot of history regarding the building frontage. Very interesting.

You are coming to the Art Deco capital of the world. How could you not want to explore and learn? We looked into self guided tours but this option seemed better. And was. The actual walk is relatively short even though our guide tacked on another 15 ( we chose the early morning walk and the longer walk is only another 30 mins) and his explanations added to the experience. A nice way to enjoy an overcast morning.

This was an activity I wasn't intending on doing but was so glad to have done so afterwards. You learn so much about the wonderful little town and our tour guide (Maggie) was so full of character she was a pleasure to be in the company of. We saw so many little details on the buildings that you wouldn't have noticed or thought about by simply walking around by oneself. It was really very good.
