This was a trip of a lifetime and we can't imagine how it could have been any better! Everything was very organized from start to finish and although we covered a lot of ground, we never felt rushed or pressured to do more than we wanted. There were many opportunities to do whatever suits you, whether it was shopping or visiting a museum or more active options like hiking, kayaking, etc. The accommodations were excellent and the tour director was the best! This is the only way to see New Zealand!
