“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

We went on a Vintage Car tour of Napier, we had a lovely blue Buick and a driver dressed especially for the occasion! The tour was very informative and interesting, we were drive around Napier's CBD and right around past the port. We were given information on the land, the 1931 Napier Earthquake and how that affected what Napier is today.

Highly recommended to everyone who is in Napier, both the ride and the commentary was interesting and entertaining.

“Ride in style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

I booked a half day trip with Hooters to surprise my husband for our 40th wedding anniversary. He was really chuffed when we walked out of our hotel and there was this stunning vintage waiting to treat us to Napier and the surrounding towns. Paul our driver was the greatest chap. He had so much knowledge, and as my husband is an avid reader and has a great memory the boys chatted about the pistons, the starter motor, and all that stuff that most girls don't know about. I knew it was a winner as they never stopped for the whole journey. We took Paul's advice and headed for the Silky Oaks chocolate factory, and a fab craft shop called Waiohiki Arts. This place is a must if you want to be treated to some fantastic NZ craft. Rhonda is the most amazing women who makes incredible hats, bags and floral arrangements from flax. You must visit this place. Prices were so reasonable compared to other places we have visited. (We are kiwis by the way) We were then taken to a couple of vineyards, Church Road and Mission. Top places and top wines and I must add take some time to read the History of Mission. I have been there several times before and never taken the time to view the old photos or read the history. Really really fantastic. We got some great photos in front of the old car at Mission, quite a fitting background I might add, before Paul took us for a visit to Hooters lockup. We had a great opportunity to view the other 16 or so vehicles they hire out and enjoy a lovely complimentary coffee. Good luck for the future your business is fantastic and something we would come back to again. Oops! I won't forget Ana the owners daughter, this girl has heaps of knowledge and experience and I believe began racing her dads cars when she was only 8yrs old back in England. The experience was worth every penny.

Thank you to Ana at Hooters for excellent service and organisation of our 'surprise' vintage car hire for friends (when we pasted through Napier last week). Ana was very accommodating with our requirements and responded promptly to emails as we made our way around NZ. The car was beautifully presented and we had a lot of fun going around the vineyards of the local area. I can highly recommend this company to help you celebrate a special occasion or simply to organise something a bit different and fun to do.
Thank you Ana and family for your professional service with a smile!

“What a blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

Napier is an art deco town, just like South Beach. Rebuilt in 1931 after an earthquake. So it is the perfect place for vintage cars from the 1920's. As we rode down main street everyone was looking at us, and we were having big fun.

You can just spend an hour. We had two couples, and spent the day. Their VIP package gave us the best cars, and we actually were in several. We went out to one of the top 20 winery restaurants in the world (Craggy Range) after touring the city, and just had a fabulous time. And they are so accomdating. If you are on a cruise this so much better, and economical, than the typical cruise tours.

Hi there,
Thank you for your review, its always a pleasure to take such a lovely group on one of our VIP day tours. A great chance to get a full view of Hawkes Bay from City to Scenic and of course a few stops at some of Hawkes Bay's famous wineries. Hope to see you again soon. Ana @ Hooters

“Service and a car to remember!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

A big thank you to all the great people at Hooters! We have just come back from a fantastic trip to NZ having rented Hooters' fabulous sky blue 1979 Camaro. From the minute I enquired over a year ago I have encountered super efficient and friendly help from Ana and the team.
They kindly picked us up at the airport and took us back to their treasure trove of vehicles. They were super flexible and helpful when it came to directions, recommendations and of course tips on driving the V8 beast. The car behaved impeccably and was the focus of lots of nice attention from appreciative passers by and enthusiasts.
I would not hesitate to recommend them, next time we are in NZ we will be coming back to you guys :)

Hi Guys,
Thank you so much for your review! It was fantastic to finally meet you after chatting over emails, glad you both ended up bonding with 'Sky' the Camaro, she does tend to have affect! Talk about great customers, from start to finish it was a real pleasure to be part of your NZ road trip! We look forward to your next visit, the 'Bug Eye' was next wasn't it? :-) Thanks again, Ana and the team @ Hooters!
