This travel company got in all the activities we wanted to do in the time we had. They were quick to answer any questions that I had. They took care of everything from all our transportation, the hotels and booked all the activities we wanted to do. New Zealand is a beautiful country and it's know as the adventure capital of the World so that is what we did. Waitomo glow worm cave, Hobbiton (must do if you like Lord of the Rings), a zip line, all near Rotorua. We went to Mt. Cook and did a helihike; a helicopter took us to a glacier and we hiked for two hours. We also did a stargazing tour that night. You can just find a dark spot to see the sky but the tour pointed out all the different constellations and planets; it was worth it. We went to Queenstown and did tandem paragliding. I am scared of heights but this was so awesome! Do it in winter and you go up to the top of the mountain. Stunning views. We did the jet boat; fast fun. We ended with Milford Sound. It is a very beautiful place but consider the time it takes to get there and back; it is an all day trip. It was an expensive trip but well worth it!
My favorite two things we did were the tandem paragliding and Hobbiton. My husband liked the zip line and the helihike. My daughter's were the helihike and Hobbiton. The island is just stunning place. I did enjoy just looking at all the scenery.
I would skip Auckland. I am not a big city person so this wasn't for me. I would also skip Christchurch. There is still a lot of construction going on after the earthquake years ago that I didn't think there was much to see. I also wouldn't do Milford Sound. It was a six hour bus ride there, a two hour tour and four hours getting back. I didn't think it was worth the time. It is a very beautiful place.
