One week until New Zealand departure! A couple more questions??

Jump to last reply

I am so excited my 3 1/2 week adventure down under is almost here. We have finalized almost everything but I still can't quite figure out my SI segment. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Here is our itinerary as it stands now. I know this is a strange travel pattern but as I stated on previous post, my 20 yr old son is in Auckland filming TV show so we are trying to spend time with him when he is off.
Nov 10th depart SFO-AKL (starting trip with my Mom)
Nov.12th-14th Auckland daytrip to Waiheke Island, studio tour and watch filming etc.
Nov.15th train trip Auckland to Wellington
Nov.16th Wellington museum,botanical gardens
Nov.17th Ferry to Picton,wine tour, back to Wellington
Nov.18th Wellington fly back to Auckland
Nov.19th Auckland studio sponsored fishing trip with cast and crew
Noc.20th DH arrives in am, day trip??
Nov.21st location shoot somewhere
Nov.22-25th Lake Taupo,glo worms.Rotorua
Nov.25 -26th Auckalnd making big Thanksgiving dinner for cast who are mostly American and away from home.
Nov.27-29th Bay of Islands
Nov. 29th back to Auckland to catch afternoon flight to Queenstown. Mom flies back to US.
Heres where I am having trouble
Nov.29-30 Queenstown?
Dec.1 Milford Sound?
Dec 1 stay somewhere enroute to Cristchurch?
Dec 3-5 Christchurch
Dec 5th we have an afternoon flight back to Auckland to catch flight back to US.
I am not sure the best way to see Milford Sound. Could do coach tour and end up back in QT or self drive and move on from there towards Christchurch. Am I crazy if I skip Mt. Cook? I see there are a couple ways to go from Te Anau towards the east coast. Any suggestions??? Thanks again for all your help. Kim
