This travel agent was most responsive even while we were in NZ when we had questions about Air New Zealand check-in. She listened to what we said we wanted to do, and gave us good advice. All of the places we stayed were lovely and gave us the opportunity in many cases to interact with our hosts and the other guests at early evening gatherings, breakfast or dinners. The car rental went smoothly in both instances and the driver she arranged after the earthquake to get us to Greymouth was terrific. A good driver and a good conversationalist re NZ history and area through which we drove. The driving directions were mostly very very good and with our maps we didn't need GPS at all. We had a lovely time and would definitely recommend this travel agency. Wish it wasn't so far away as we would love to see more of the country.

Waiheke wine and olive mill tour, wilderness lodge stay, Helicopter ride up over both big glaciers and Mt. Cook, Doubtful Sound trip.
I would add a couple of days at least to spend another night at The Resurgence ( which we loved) and would have pre-booked the ecotour of Abel Tasman so that we could have done it. I think we would stay another night either in Wanaka or Arrowtown as well. We didn't get a really good feel for Wanaka as the weather was the least good while we were there, but we loved Arrowtown although the breakfasts at the Arrowtown hotel are a bit overdone. If I had known that there was a smaller boat for Doubtful Sound, we might have opted for that as folks we met who did that one made it sound more special than the 70 passenger boat. I gather they fished for crayfish and cooked them and had a piano playing chef. If it is a lot more pricey, maybe we would have stuck with tour boat, but would have like to have the option.
