best time to visit nz.

We are thinking about taking a guided coach tour of both islands in 2013 can anyone suggest best time to go between months of May and September?

Welcome to the Forum. What are your interests? May to September you can expect cool-cold nights across most of the country. Day time temps will vary with latitude. If you want to ski or see snow then July/ August would be best. If you want to see spring gardens, lambs etc September would be good, except that it can be wet. May might still have autumn colours around Queenstown & Arrowtown.

September is good as the mountains will still have a nice coating of snow. Very pretty.
