good day. Am thinking of bringing my family (2 adults and 1 baby) for a holiday to NZ this year end. It'll be our 1st trip to NZ hence would need all your advice:
1. Our baby daughter will be 1.5yrs old in Dec. Should we self-drive or join an organised tour? My friends tell me it's better to self-drive but we're not familiar with the place at all and have no itinerary to start with. Has anyone done a self-drive to NZ and willing to share your itinerary?
2. We are thinking of doing a 7-10days trip, where should we visit? Possible to do both North and South Islands? We're not the shopping type, just want to enjoy the beautiful scenery in NZ and have a relaxing time bonding as a family.
3. Anyone with self-drive experience to NZ care to give us some pointers? Esp itinerary, good accomodation and car rental etc? Would a self-drive holiday end up being more expensive than an organised tour?
4. Any tourist traps to avoid (if any)?
Thanks for sharing your experience with us in advance!
