  • Vintage Deco Cars

The original town of Napier was levelled by a dramatic and devastating earthquake in 1931 but was completely rebuilt within a remarkable 2 year period in the contemporary style of the times; Art Deco. Relive the glamour and style of the jazz era with a luxurious vintage car tour. You'll be met your driver, in Art Deco costume, who will provide a fascinating commentary as you are driven in style, through Napier and surrounding areas. You'll learn about the earthquake that destroyed the city, hear stories of the people that led the rebuild, and discover the Art Deco style. En route you will stop in Ahuriri and visit one of the most photographed buildings in New Zealand, the National Tobacco Company building. You'll then step back in time as you drive through the residential suburb of Marewa, meaning 'gift from the sea' in Maori. This suburb was built entirely on land that rose from the sea in the 1931 earthquake and is filled with 1930s style homes. You'll return to the Art Deco Centre or your central Napier hotel filled with a new appreciation for the city and the people who survived New Zealand's worst natural disaster in modern times.
