Hi Wallos -

Your itinerary looks good to me. Plenty to keep you busy in Queenstown -highly recommend the Dart River Safari.

Have a great trip!

Dear Wallos,
Your trip is very similar to our plans. We arrive CCH Nov. 17 and follow same route as you except go to FJ and not Milford Sounds. We will end up in Dunedin to do the ELM Wildlife Tour which I keep hearing is a must then will fly to Auckland. We are still planning 2 1/2 days around ACK. If anyone has suggestions I have a post titled Ideas around Auckland.
