There are not enough superlatives to describe our tour with John! Exploring Napier with John quickly placed Napier on my list of “where do I want to live if I ever move to New Zealand?” I can’t think of a better way to get a spectacular overview of the Art Deco heritage, the wine growing region, and unique art. We bought a sculpture at a local gallery and are enjoying reminiscing about our wonderful New Zealand trip every time we look at it.

It was our best tour of our cruise! John was very informative and his Mercedes van was uber comfortable.

We booked a private tour of Art Deco Napier, lunch and tasting at Craggy Range and a tasting at Te Mata, the two best wineries in the area. John is a wonderfully personable individual with an encyclopedic knowledge of Napier and its history. He really made it all come alive. Lunch at Craggy Range was excellent as were the wines at both wineries. We like the fact that John has a number of tour options, but customized to our preferences. Highly recommend touring with Tailored Travel.

We had such a wonderful afternoon with John. He was very flexible and offered great suggestions of what we might like to see. We went to a variety of vineyards, up to the lookout at Te Mata, to a nice gallery, and had a short tour of the town in Napier. John was a great guide and we really appreciated how flexible he was with pick up times etc. We think anyone would enjoy a tour with John.
