We thoroughly enjoyed the custom designed Lord of the Rings trip to New Zealand from February 27-March 12, 2015! The travel agent, Shannon, was a joy to work with. She was helpful and went the "extra mile" to design and arrange the activities and accommodations.
In addition to the incredible scenery, the three helicopter rides were my favorites, probably because they afforded the opportunity to really "see" the scenery and a great deal of the country from a bird's eye perspective.
I would make arrangements to get out of Auckland ASAP after arriving. It was my least favorite part of the adventure. The parking at the Waldorf Celestial Apartment Hotel was totally inadequate on-site and inconvenient off-site. I received a parking ticket 2 hours after a 5:30 a.m. landing at the airport while trying to off-load luggage at the front door of the hotel. The traffic cop was an unfriendly, rude fellow. In addition, after a 13+ hour flight I was in no shape or mood to wait until 3:00 p.m. to check in. A bed & breakfast south of Auckland out of the downtown mayhem would have been better appreciated. The accommodations and activities for the rest of the trip were just fine.
