This was a great way to see the south island. All travel arrangements are coordinated for you but you're not on a tour bus you take the local buses to get from one town to the next...a beautiful, scenic way to sea New Zealand and hang with the locals. The last leg of the trip was so much fun on the Trans Alpine train. Hotel accomodations were fine

All the arrangements were perfect. If I had any complaint it was that we spent a lot of time on buses and trains. However, we did get to see a lot of the South Island.
