We had a wonderful trip to New Zealand thanks to this New Zealand travel agency and our travel specialist. We had worked very closely with our apecialist in outlining our needs, budget and interests and she did a good job putting together an itinerary that was fun, that allowed us to explore our interests and that resulted in a memorable trip for my wife and I.
I had already done a lot of research myself on NZ and the things that I had wanted to see. I usually book trips myself using online tools and this was one of the few instances when I decided to use an agent and am glad I did so. Our agent rightfully noted that my agenda was too ambitious for two weeks and that I needed to drop a few places. She suggested a few activities that we had not heard of before like zorbing and her local knowledge certainly helped a lot and her planning and execution were spot on.
On arrival in Auckland, NZ, a professional booklet was waiting for us with a detailed daily itinerary along with vouchers, suggestions for places to visit , brief descriptions of the regions we were visiting etc. which was priceless! We religiously referred to it every day of our trip bracing ourselves for what lay ahead the next day :)
All in all a fantastic road trip that made my b'day celebration a memorable experience!
Our trip to NZ included several memorable parts but if I had to pick a few must do's, it would be the following
I'd skip the recommendation of wine tasting in Nelson and instead focus on the Marlboro region with its spectacular wines. I may have also chosen to spend a night near Marlboro given my keen appreciation of vino ;)
The rest of the itinerary was great. It did involve a new hotel almost each night but in two weeks with so much road to cover there's not much you can do to avoid that.
I accidentally discovered Lake Matheson courtesy the guests in our B&B in Fox Glacier. I'd definitely recommend that to other travelers as a must see.
