Full description
Your tour will depart from either the Port of Tauranga Mount Maunganui or your Tauranga accommodation. From there you will drive along the pristine Mount Maunganui beachfront. Your first stop will be to a Dutch Cheese shop, where you'll hear the story of how they make their cheeses complete with the samplings of some of the huge range of cheeses.

It will then be time to head on out into the country, where you will stop at a delicatessen stocked with the finest handcrafted products. Whilst there you can also sample their salami and chorizo, which are aged in the traditional Hungarian way. Fresh barista-made coffee is also available there. Next, it will be time to drive up into the hills to the Minden Lookout, where you will have panoramic views of Tauranga, Mount Maunganui, the harbor and beyond.

You will then pass orchards of kiwifruit and avocados to a small family country cidery, where you can sample their range of award-winning handcrafted ciders with the option of a light lunch. Following that, you will advance to the award-winning Mills Reef Winery for some wine tastings, before then hitting a craft beer brewery for a brewery tour and of course generous tastings of craft beer and cider (partnered with gourmet pizza). You will then finish off with a Berryfarm visit where you can pick your own berries if you wish, finishing off with an authentic fruit berry ice cream.
