What Miles loves about this tour:
With 3 weeks you won’t miss a thing - from the Bay of Islands and Rotorua in the north, to Queenstown and Milford Sound in the south, with plenty of time off the beaten track too. You'll love feeling like a local, not a visitor, these are all the spots we loved on holiday as kids!
