So happy you'll visit again.  Like your itin.  Last year we drove 1200 miles in South Island for 2 weeks.  May be we'll repeat but with less rushed schedule. May I PM you on Tuesday when I get home from memorial weekend and compare notes?

Absolutely!!

great photos, I am thinking of going to New Zealand when the budget allows, you said the trip was with Red Carpet Tour, I checked their 14 day tour and it seem its packed, did you have the chance to explore a bit, or all the photos are from the exact locations of the tour, I mean the south island is big enough for one to spend months in it to shoot it fully.

The tour is amazing. At times, I felt a bit rushed (as a Photographer), but other times I had more than enough time to get the shots I wanted. I also booked an additional 5 days in Queenstown at the end of the trip - I booked helicopter flights, Doubtful Sound/Milford Sound cruises, Jet boats, etc.

The tour is mainly geared towards fanatics of The Lord of the Rings. If that's your bag - youll be amazed at how tailored this tour is to you. As a Photographer - you might wish you had more time. For me, it was a best of both worlds (HUGE LOTR FAN HERE) - it got me from place to place with ease, and I got to see all the major places that I wanted to see.

You're right - I could have spent a year in the South Island and not have seen it all. Thats why I'm going back. :D :D

Excellent pictures firegs - they make me want to go back there again. I spent 5 weeks there in 2002, driving 6000km in the 4 weeks I had the rental car.
