My family and I recently booked a 23 day trip to the North and South Islands of New Zealand. Our travel agent provided us with the perfect itinerary for our family. The New Zealand tour company reworked our original quote to work within our budget but still created the trip of our dreams. All of the reservations were spot on and the trip was extremely organized from the vouchers to the directions and what we could expect in each town. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone who is looking for someone who is very knowledgeable about New Zealand. If you are coming from the states, this is definitely a financial and time commitment and if you have never been there, you want someone you can trust to help plan your trip. This company is definitely the one to choose.
There were many highlights of the trip such as the visit to the Bay of Islands where we boogie boarded down large sand dunes and taking a boat trip to see the Hole in the Rock. The glow worm caves in Waitomo were also very interesting and educational for my 12 year old daughter. Rotorua was fascinating as we explored the Geothermal Wonderland. Kayaking in Abel Tasman and swimming with dolphins in Kaikoura was the highlight of the entire trip. We swam in the open ocean with hundreds of dolphins and even saw a momma nursing her baby. The Fox Glacier trek was also very beautiful and a once in a life time opportunity. Queenstown is definitey the playground of New Zealand, we had a great time going to restaurants, riding the gondola and luge and my favorite, doing a bungy jump from the famous bridge.
For the most part, nothing. Maybe rework my trip to stay longer in Queenstown and Kaikoura our two favorite places. For our family who is active, I would not recommend the Milford Sound Coach/Cruise/Coach excursion. Riding the bus for a couple hours and then the boat and then the coach home was not the kind of excursion we enjoy but for those who prefer to drive and jump out and take a quick photo this would be for you.
