THE TASTEBUD TOUR IN AUCKLAND WITH BIG FOODY TOURS
The flagship tour! The Tastebud Tour is the perfect tour to explore the Auckland city and suburbs. On this driven tour we visit everywhere from Auckland Fish Market, the shops the chefs go shopping, chocolatiers, cafes, farmers markets, artisan producers and much much more. The tour takes in the sights and sounds of the vibrant Auckland region while we talk you through the architecture, culture and character that makes up this exciting city. Our experienced, passionate and fun tour guides will give you a morning you will thoroughly enjoy! The Tastebud Tour is driven (so you can sit back and relax) and takes four hours.

HOBBITON MOVIE SET TOUR EX THE SHIRES REST
Join us and experience the real Middle-earth™ at the Hobbiton™ Movie Set, where, in the heart of the Waikato region, you can step into the lush pastures of the Shire™, as seen in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the unequivocal beauty of the land, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance. Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. You will be fully guided around the 12 acre set; past Hobbit Holes™, the Mill and into the world-famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you will be presented with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverage to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.

DELUXE LAKE SPA AT POLYNESIAN SPA
Any visit to Rotorua, must include our geothermal healing waters. The Polynesian Spa continues to evolve and focus on health and wellness, introducing passive and active bathing experiences for increased immunity and greater energy levels. Entrance to the Deluxe Lake Spa, offers 5 mineral pools, and a plunge pool, premium changing facilities including towels, lockers and beautiful soap and shampoo, and access to the large indoor relaxation lounge.

MITAI CULTURAL EXPERIENCE AND HANGI
At Mitai Maori Village, witness displays of weaponry and combat shown through cultural performance. Listen to legendary tales, and feast on a delicious hangi. Be enthralled by the warriors in traditional dress as they paddle an ancient waka down the Wai-o-whiro stream. Don’t miss your only opportunity whilst in the Rotorua area to see glow worms in their natural habitat. The Mitai Maori Village cultural performances transport visitors back to a time when the ancient Maori customs and traditions were part of everyday life. Songs, dances, myths and legends will give you an insight to our fascinating past.

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE DIPPER TOUR IN NAPIER WITH SILKY OAK CHOCOLATE COMPANY
The only comprehensive chocolate museum in the southern hemisphere it tells the story of a food whose past is as rich as its flavour. There is a fascinating array of items all connected with history of chocolate. Included are 400-year-old South American Chocolate pots, fine European china and silver, beautifully-crafted boxes, long handled muddlers to spoon the thick melted chocolate 'drink' favoured by early European connoisseurs, and curiosities such as a 1900's American chocolate machine which for a cent dispensed a chocolate drop. 
This is self-guided, allow anywhere from 30 mins to 2 hours (depending on your level of chocoholic addiction) to fully take in the history of chocolate from Bean to Bar.
