    • Best way to get to Napier from Auckland?

      by lysia9 Online Now May 3, 2011 at 12:33 AM

      Hi, I will be in staying in Auckland during the RWC and have tickets to a game in Napier. It seems no trains go to Napier, and as it is during the World Cup, flight prices are ridiculously high. Does anyone have any advice for the best way to get there? From what I've looked into, rental cars or Intercity buses may be the best option. Any suggestions/recommendations?

      One day in Napier

      by faberina Online Now Jan 27, 2009 at 8:50 PM

      Hi all.......we are 4 mature ladies from Oz coming to your part of the world for one day only, off the Sun Princess and are wondering what we can do to fill in the day. We aren't doing any of the ships tours as they are too expensive so we thought we would do our own thing. So now we need to know what are the best things to do. Thanks

      We will spend one day in Napier in November on our cruise around NZ. We would like to see a winery or two. What is the best way to get to the wineries -- hiring a car or arranging a tour guide to pick us up?

    • Rental car in Napier

      by Paulaann12 Online Now Aug 9, 2008 at 6:10 AM

      We will be arriving in Napier on the cruise ship Millenium in Novenber. We wish to rent a car for the day while we are in Napier and tour some of the area. Is there a car rental agency in downtown Napier? I have found car rental companies at the airport, but we have no way of getting to the airport. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

      Cape Kidnappers

      by martin_nl Online Now Sep 14, 2003 at 5:54 AM

      In February and March I will go to NZ. At the end of February I want to visit Cape Kidnappers to see the Gannet colony. Now for my questions I would like to know how I can get from Taupo to Napier by using public transportation and how much would that cost approx? Also when I'm in Napier, how to get to the colony? Can I only book the tractor tour there, or is it possible to do this on my own? How far away is Cape Kidnappers exactly from Napier? Lots of questions, but I hope you can help me. Martin
