    You will be met at Napier’s Aquarium (the second bus stop) after disembarking from the free cruise ship shuttle.

    We drive through Napier's Art Deco CBD and our first stop is at the iconic Art Deco National Tobacco for a photo opportunity. We then proceed to Esk Valley, past vineyards, stone fruit orchards, pip fruit orchards and Avocado plantations. Our next stop is the Spanish Mission style Esk Valley memorial church. This church was built in memory of soldiers who lost their lives during the First World War.

    Seafield farms bounds the church and we take the farm road up to the exclusive viewing point.From here you will be able to see an wonderful views of the bay and surrounding farmland. Complementary refreshments are provided in the vineyard amongst the vines. These out door activities are weather dependent.

    We then travel back to Napier and stop at the Bayview Orchard fruit shop to taste and observe local produce or buy a real fruit ice cream. The final stop is the Bluff Hill lookout overlooking the port where your cruise ship will be tied up below. You will never be in a better location to take a photo of your ship.

    The tour concludes with you being delivered safely back to the Napier i-SITE from where the free shuttle will take you back to your cruise ship.
