Arrival Formalities  Stuff about visas, immigration and all that jazz - and what to do on arrival. Customs, duty free and getting away from the airport. Let me warn you about our customs people - who have bright eyes, and sharp fangs. Could avoid you being arrested or fined on arrival.

Accommodation  Where to lay your weary head at the end of another long, hard day enjoying yourself.

Getting Around  Travelling on . . . . by road, rail, air or sea. Transport is one of your biggest costs and therefore one of the major decisions to be made. This will help you get it sorted.

Just About Everything You Ever Needed  To Know To Get The Most From Your NZ Holiday

The (Almost) Complete Guide To NZ is the kind of information you need to make the best of your holiday in New Zealand - recommendations on where to stay, where to eat, what to see. 

Yes, all that.  But more, much more. 

Transport, rest areas, photo opportunities, historical background, special places that few others know about  Ohhhh . . .  heaps and heaps of stuff.

And it's all written by a local - not a visiting "editor" - who has been travelling and writing about the country for 30 years. I can give you hints and tips that only a local could possibly know - ideas that will save you time, money and tears.

This is important:  No one has paid for inclusion in this guide.  There are no ads and I rarely, if ever, accept free rides, accommodation etc. That way I am totally free to recommend whatever or whoever I choose.
