Thank you for organizing everything so well for the New Zealand leg of the trip.
It ended up being a lot more complicated than I'd originally thought with us overlapping with K and then E and C being able
to meet up with us for several segments - but that meaning we had to be near airports on specific days.
It all worked out perfectly and all of the bookings and travel went very smoothly.
I really appreciated the personal touch from someone who knows the country rather than trying to do everything myself online.
We'd been told by some Kiwi friends about New Zealand motels but to be honest, having had a somewhat dodgy motel experience in the US a few years back, we were somewhat sceptical.
But now we are converts. The accommodation was clean, spacious, even the "bronze", and great value for money. It was particularly useful on such a long trip often to have washing and drying facilities for clothes.
We also enjoyed the flexibility of being able to do some of our own cooking rather than eating out every meal.
Your brief itineraries with highlights of sights en route were very useful especially when combined with the 6 or 7 AA regional guides that are given away at the i-Sites and at many attractions.
And the drive times were pretty accurate as well - it's good to know when you'll only be able to average 60 Kph - Coromandel!
It was a nice surprise to meet you at Abel Tasman. That was a great side trip, although the Day 2 weather was very wet the lodges are very comfortable and with excellent food - and you get
more of a sense of achievement from the walk if it hasn't been all plain sailing!
Overall the whole holiday exceeded our expectations - which were pretty high anyway, Em had been talking up NZ - and it was undoubtedly our best trip ever.
Our only regret is that in so many places we only had a day where we could easily have spent a week.
We'll just have to come back!
Thanks again for all your help with the itinerary.
