Booked this tour at the Napier I site where the buses drop off the cruise ship passengers. Cost $55 per person. Well worth the money. Katrina was very knowledgeable about the history of Napier. Took us to Mission Estate where we did wine tasting. Also went to chocolate shop and National Aquarium as well as driving through countryside. Would recommend this tour to anyone who has limited time in Napier.

We came to Hawkes Bay to do a wine tour of the area and we're so glad that we chose Bay Tours to look after us. Christine was our driver and guide and was extremely prompt and informative. We visited some great examples of excellent wineries in the area and we were well looked after all day. We would highly recommend Bay Tours and Christine to anyone wanting to visit the area.

We hoped for the best when asking for advice in winery tours in Napier and truly feel we won the tour lottery! We had Tim as our host and guide. He was kind, knowledgeable and informative. He never rushed our group and consistently added extra value to the tour by pointing out great sites and teaching us about the region and wine in the area. He was a delight and we so very much enjoyed the various wineries we toured. Well worth the $!
