I am planning on spending 5 days on the south island at the end of March. I had thought about staying in Christchurch, but I have heard since the big earthquake in 2011 not to stay there. We want to stay someplace where we can take day trips or tours to view different parts of the island. If it involves driving, I don't want places that are hard to find.
Please let me know: where to stay, and what to go see.
I was disappointed that I could not find any cruises that just covered New Zealand for 5-7 days.
Thanks so much!
