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.

A quick stop is next to enjoy the taste of New Zealand Chocolate.  After enjoying a New Zealand Cafe style lunch, we view a vast selection of colorful ceramics, pots, home decor and garden ware all created on-site in the expansive buildings that house the showroom and pottery factory of Morris and James. Our next stop is to the newly opened Sculptureum, with over 400 works in three gardens. The Garden of Creative Diversity, filled with sculptures that range from classical fountains to towering flowers, to life size elephants made of driftwood. The Palm garden is home to the more delicate works of glass, metal, ceramics and other material, while the Pink Snail Garden houses a wonderful array or art, including vibrant and hugely playful pieces by the Cracking Art Group.
