Napier, New Zealand

Here’s what we did in Napier, NZ!

Travel Date:  9 Nov 2014

Transportation:  There’s a free shuttle from the cruise ship into town.  If we wouldn’t have booked our tour, we noticed a cute bike shop where we could have rented bikes to tour the town!  The cruise ship is docked at an industrial port, so you have to take the cruise shuttle or a tour out of the port into town (approx. 1.5 miles).

Itinerary:

A1Tours4U Half Day Wine Tour ($63/person)

We had a great tour guide who took us through the city to see the Art Deco, stopped at the local theater to look inside, drove up into the hillside to view historical houses and a great view of the city, and then took us to 2 wineries before ending the day at Te Mata Peak.  The wineries were great.  The wine has very few toxins and was easy to drink.  The views from Te Mata Peak are beautiful too!

We didn’t get to walk around the downtown area, but it looked very nice and there was a long stretch of beach too.

Very cute town!
