The agent's planning and suggestions were spot on and the total itinerary came in right on budget.
We had a great time. The pace felt just right between free time (to explore on our own) and planned activities. All of the guides/tours we had were fantastic … nice people who seem to really like their jobs. We particularly loved our accommodations in Blenheim. Also the Auckland hotel was very nice, and we appreciated the pool with a spa tub – that proved to be the perfect way to end our first day after all that travel (and lack of sleep). As we reflected on the plane ride home, there really wasn’t anything we would have done differently.
The most memorable part was how nice and friendly people were and the general laid back atmosphere.
Almost all of the planned activities were great. We also enjoyed the Dart River Boat Tour (which was not on the itinerary as this was done on one of our 'free' days).
Maybe skip Christchurch. Also, the whale boat tour out of Kaikoura was cancelled (the whales were too far out), and I would have liked to have done that.
