Frommer’s books aren’t written by committee, or by travel writers who simply pop in briefly to a destination and then consider the job done. We use seasoned, locally-based journalists like Diana Balham and Kate Fraser. Both are born and bred Kiwis who have worked for the finest newspapers in New Zealand covering travel, culture, cuisine and more. They’ve checked out all of the country's best hotels and restaurants in person, and offer authoritative, candid reviews that will help you find the choices that suit your tastes and budget, whether you’re a backpacker or on a splashy honeymoon. Most importantly, they’re not shy about telling you what you should see...and what you can skip without regret. This light, portable book includes a fold-out map, plus detailed maps throughout, with exact pricing, opening hours, and other important details that will make your trip smoother and less hectic. It features smartly conceived itineraries for travelers of all types, with fastidiously researched information on all of the outdoor adventures New Zealand offers. From bungee jumping to spectacular hiking, plus the most responsible outfitters to use for these activities, this book has it all, from budget to luxury and everything in between.
