It was a great comprise for us both - me being very planned and liking everything preplanned, and Luke liking things a bit more spontaneous.
Our itinerary/self drive really allowed this to happen, and the scenery we saw during the 17 days was incredible!
Everywhere we stayed the people were lovely and always willing to offer suggestions on things to do and places to eat/drink.
Your suggestions of things to do were very helpful.
Our highlights were the day trip to Milford Sound from Te Anau, helicopter ride at Fox Glacier, dinner at the Sky Tower in Queenstown, Speights Brewery in Dunedin, Redwood Treewalk and Polynesian Spa in Rotorua.
It is also worth noting the International Antarctic Centre in Christchurch - near the airport.
Our hotel in Auckland - Quality Inn Parnell had the most amazing view of the city.
We appreciate all the effort that you put in to make our time away relaxing and enjoyable.
We would highly recommend to others.
