I can only recommend Haka Tours: Small groups (all ages), one motivated driver/guide, good accommodation choices and a fantastic country!
I went on the one-week tour around the North Island with Jackson as a guide. We saw great places and the hostels Haka had booked were always good. Breakfast was included in the price and Jackson bought whatever we fancied. (Haka groups always take a big breakfeast box on tour and they fill it with things the group members like, so for example we always had fresh fruit, cereal, joghurt, milk, juice, different kinds of bread, almonds, ...)
Overall, our guide Jackson went out of his way to cater for everybody's needs (not only in terms of breakfast...;-)). Whenever you hadn't booked or didn't want to join an activity, he made sure there was something else for you to do/see instead.
The bus was small (for up to 16 people, we were a group of 12), modern and comfortable. I would definitely book Haka again! (I also travelled with Stray - who offer a totally different travel concept, I know, but it terms of motivation of the drivers/guides, the quality of the bus, what you get for what you pay, I would invest a little extra and choose Haka instead)
