I am traveling to the South Island for 8 days in December and I am trying to figure out if I should I buy a self drive tour from a company or just plan it myself?
I have priced out all the components of a tour I saw online and it looks like they are making a lot of money on me but I know there are costs I am not including (taxes, airport transfers, etc.).
I'm not constrained by a budget but I'm a big fan of saving money. Any thoughts or experiences that folks can share? Thanks.
