• An Art Deco tour like no other!

    In all her custom designed splendour, with velvet covered cushioned seats, generously spacious carriages for comfort, truly tall windows tempting you to admire the abundant decorative detail of the city’s rich period architecture, the Express will take you on your journey in style. As the bell rings and the whistle blows, you’ll feel yourself transported back to a time when first-class meant swing music, polished wooden floors and crimson-tasseled curtains. This modern road train feels every bit like an old-fashioned steam engine, with the romantic atmosphere straight out of the opulent Art Deco era.

  • For independent travellers

    If you are travelling independently, unfortunately we have stopped doing daily public tours for this season as we are so busy with the cruise ships, tour buses and groups plus we are building a second train.If this is the case, I am sorry we can not accommodate you at this time but my wife and I wish you a great time in Napier and safe travels.
  • For cruise passengers

    If you are coming to Napier on a cruise ship we have tours running for all ships. You need to book through the cruise ship as our tours have proved to be so popular the ships fully book us out for the time the ship is in port. Booking directly with us in not possible. If you are coming to Napier by cruise we hope you will join us for a fun tour of our city.
