Enjoy an exclusive Art Deco experience with a private guided tour of Napier’s Art Deco Quarter, at a time to suit you. Your guide will tailor the walking tour to your pace and your particular interests, making this a unique and highly personalized experience.

Since the Art Deco Trust began showing the city’s Art Deco treasures to tourists in 1985, thousands of people each year have experienced Napier’s fascinating heritage and have been captivated by the dramatic story of this city’s rebirth in the vibrant 1930s.

In February 1931, Napier was levelled by earthquake and fire but was rebuilt in the depths of the Great Depression in just two years.  Nowhere else in the world can you see such a concentration of buildings in the styles of the 1930s: Art Deco, Spanish Mission and Stripped Classical.

On this easy going walking tour, you’ll hear the story of the earthquake that devastated Napier in 1931 and be introduced to the Art Deco style and hear stories of the characters involved in rebuilding this city.

This tour includes a complimentary viewing of a 20 minute earthquake movie “The Day that Changed the Bay” at the Hawkes Bay Museum
