4 guys traveling to N.Z around Thanksgiving and all well traveled. Thinking we should spend more time on S.I. vs. N.I. from what we've heard. Older guys, so no partying aspirations. More interested in the scenery. Really only have 9 days. Land on a Thursday am then fly out a week Saturday pm. Any specific things we should do? Pretty good sized budgets.
Thanks in advance for your advise!
