Our tour takes you to Puhoi which is one of New Zealand's ethnic historic villages. It was settled by Europeans on 29 June 1863 by a group of German-speaking migrants from Staab (in Bohemia, now a province of the Czech Republic under the leadership of Captain Martin Krippner. This has given it the appellation of "Bohemian Settlement". We get to taste European style cheeses they make here.
At the Honey Centre you will get to taste New Zealand's famous Manuka Honey renowned for it's healing properties and to appreciate the busy worker bees. A quick stop is next to enjoy the taste of New Zealand Chocolate.
