Our travel agent recommended that we stay the majority of our vacation in Queenstown (south island) and it turned out to be a good recommendation. We enjoyed the scenery and activities in this area. The Routeburn Track (guided nature walk) was superb! Then we flew to the north island and spent two nights in Rotorua. We had a multi-adventure day there that was amazing. This included mountain biking, rafting, and kayaking. We also enjoyed our visit to the Waitomo Caves on our way to Auckland.
The agent handled our flights to New Zealand from Los Angeles and all our flights within New Zealand. In addition we were not willing to be the driver in a foreign country and she secured all our ground transportation which was all on time and professional. The packing list and general information provided by her was very helpful.
I already recommended this tour company to a friend who is traveling to New Zealand later this year.
We found the South Island more majestic and scenic overall. Our favorite adventures were the Routeburn Track, Milford Sound, and the multi-adventure day in Rotorua. There was a nice blend of both vigorous adventures and scenic tours alternated throughout the trip.
Travel further south to see the yellow-eyed penguins.
