Guide Bio


Much like you, I have the travel bug, which brought me to where I am today. Originally from England, I came to New Zealand in 2010 for a holiday. I quickly fell in love with the place and decided to relocate our business to sunny Napier. It was the best decision I could have made! Having been involved in old cars for the majority of my life, my family and I decided this would be a great place to call home, and start our own tour company.

I have over 20 years experience as a guide. Why do I do it? Because I love vintage cars, and I love sharing my passion with other people. Nothing compares to cruising down the highway, turning heads as I pass. I couldn’t do it all myself though – we are a family run business. I offer a variety of car tours which are sure to meet your traveling interests. While I do offer set local car tours, my expertise is in tailor-made packages and complete tour itineraries. Whether you are looking for an adventure discovering New Zealand, a romantic getaway, or group tours, like the most entertaining scavenger hunt you have ever been on, I can cater to you.

Swing on by, and hop in a ride! You don’t know what it’s like to drive until you’ve been at the wheel in of my vintage cars!

    Just returned from a tour with Ginny and the 1929 Oldsmobile, Adele. What a spectacular time we had! The vintage car is a fabulous way to see your lovely city. We learned a great deal about the history, the architecture, and how the locals live.

    Ginny was so well informed, and able to share her knowledge and life experiences in a pleasant and easy manner. She has a delightful demeanor that made our tour very special. We stopped by and met David, the owner. I loved all of his “toys”, and enjoyed talking cars with him a bit. Just a delight.

    Many thanks for teaming us with Ginny, and Adele, and for making our day in Napier so special. We’ll be sure to tell our friends and ship’s staff about your operation.

    All the best,

    Art & Dianne DeLaurier
