Hi, great review you gave. Can you provide some suggestions? We will spend 14 days in South New Zealand....plan to rent a car and try to see as much as we can without driving every day......we are in our 60's, like to walk, eat and visit new places. We will be in New Zealand in the month of October...appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks, George
