I just came back from our nearly two week trip to New Zealand - excellent! Truly a trip of a lifetime. I was hesitant to book the trip at first - so far away, so many things to plan. Our travel agency did a great job - nearly all our activities were prepaid. Drivers met us as scheduled. My goal - no personal driving. Because all these details were taken care of, we could enjoy ourselves without worries.
Auckland - we added indoor skiing at Snowplanet.
Waitomo Caves - blackwater rafting and glowworm cave tours.
Rotorua - Te Puia, Hobbiton excursion, Spa.
Queenstown - Dart River Jet Boat & Funyak tour, Milford Sound tour.
Franz Josef - glacier heli-hike.
Christchurch - we added Christchurch Bike Tour.
I enjoyed the scenic train from Franz Josef to Christchurch. Now that I did it once, if I were to go back to New Zealand, I would try to find a quicker way to travel.
I wouldn't change anything we did except to stay an extra day in both Auckland and Christchurch; perhaps also go to Wellington and Nelson.
