My husband and I just returned from a three-week honeymoon in Australia and New Zealand. We planned the first week ourselves and had this travel agency take over for the two weeks we spent in New Zealand's South Island. They were very honest about what we would be able to expect with our budget and did a wonderful job planning an unforgettable experience for us! They very quickly provided us a draft itinerary, given our interests and preferences, and very quickly incorporated the small changes and requests we made. We wanted exposure to as much of the South Island as we could get, so we only spent 1-2 nights in each place, but we felt like we got a good adventure in each place we stopped! Thanks to our travel agents for creating this trip for us!
Hapuku Lodge, where guests can elect to stay in their own luxury treehouse, was unforgettable! We told our travel company we wanted to stay in a treehouse at some point and this was beyond our expectations! We also loved the Misty Mountain Heli-Hike we did. That activity was actually an itinerary change due to a previously cancelled heli-hike activity in Franz Josef, but our agent coordinated the payment on her end so that we didn't have to worry about handling refunds/payments ourselves.
We stayed in so many beautiful lodges run by wonderful Kiwis - we didn't realize how busy we would be and how little time we would have to spend in the lodges. Perhaps next time we would focus less of our budget on the quality of accommodations (since sometimes we just threw down our bags and left to go exploring!) and more of it on activities. It's not something we would have known beforehand, but now it's something we've learned about our preferences.
