Private Shore Excursion: Taste of Plenty Food Tour

    What to Expect
    Taste of Plenty tours generally depart at 9. 30 but times can be adjusted to fit in with ship arrival times or your preferred departure time. You will collected at the Port of Tauranga or local accommodation in an air conditioned vehicle to embark upon a foodie and cultural adventure. As you traverse the Bay of Plenty, you will see lush farmlands, some of the best beaches in New Zealand and the vibrant colonial town and current regional capital city of Tauranga.
    Depending on what is in season you will visit orchards, hole in the wall production facilities, retailers and unique stunning locations where other tours don't go! Our local farmers market is always a great stop on a Saturday morning or it might be a specialty delicatessen with local and imported items. Fancy a to an Avocado or kiwi fruit orchard and learning about the importance of these fruits to our region? How about sampling local Dutch cheeses and learning about the influence of the Dutch immigrants on the cheese industry in New Zealand. Don't forget Manuka honey and its magic.
    After traversing the countryside we end up at one of the most historic beaches in New Zealand. Sit in the seaside cafe and enjoy a light "kiwi favourite" lunch with a glass of New Zealand wine and marvel at the view before we head back to Tauranga! This is a full day that will leave you with a full belly and a full camera! You will only be hungry for a return visit to the stunning Bay of Plenty!
