NZ for 4 weeks January '13

Jump to last reply

Oh please help me! I have read through many posts here, so am starting to get a feel for things, but still a bit overwhelmed!
Facts:
52 yrs old, female travelling alone, love travelling alone!
first time to nz, hopefully not last, but you never know
don't drive, have to get around somehow! best way? I have found a bus pass but it sounds a bit "backpackerish". flying is cheap, but how to get around between air destinations?
wine interest, serious foodie, own a fine food store/catering comapny. want to do a wine tour but not sure how without a car. am not a big fan of busses but realize this may be the only way!
want to see both cities and countryside, certainly Milford area
am meeting up with my 18 year old daughter currently living in auckland
I don't want to spend my trip travelling/driving between destinations, would rather see more things well than a ton of things out the window of a bus!
flying in and out of auckland
love fine dining/cities but also country/small town experiences

Any and all input gratefully received!
Thank you in advance.
