    The "Best of" section is great, from Trout Fishing to New Zealand After Dark, and there is a comprehensive calendar of events. -- Independent on Sunday 05 March 2001

    This book is a great companion... -- Independent on Sunday 05 March 2001 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    From the Publisher

    Written in a chatty but unobtrusive first-person style by somebody who has visited New Zealand regularly for years, this book is a great companion. The “Best of…” section is great, from Trout Fishing to New Zealand After Dark, and there is a comprehensive calendar of events. The layout and maps are user friendly. This book always tells you where guides or organized trips might be useful or when you could do it yourself unaided. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Don't Depend On This Information Alone! Oct. 11 2000
    Format:Paperback
    This book touts itself as being the most comprehensive up-to-date with exact information and prices. Not so! It may have been published this year but we found many of the places reviewed had closed, moved or were renamed & under new management. Several other places of interest to travelers were totally ignored: for example, the coverage of the botanical gardens in Christchurch fails to give any information at all about the Carter Observatory located there. And don't think that all those "free" museums are really without cost! Several had suggested "donations" posted at their turnstile entrances that would take a lot more chutzpah than I possess to bypass without paying. Frommer's idea of moderately priced facilities would give most travelers a heart attack and the restaurants reviewed are hit or miss. For example the highly praised Saugero Mexican Restaurant in Queenstown puts broccoli and carrots in their chicken burritos which is only to be discovered after a shocking first bite; neither the menu nor the guidebook gives warning to these unusual ingrediants. Do yourself a favor and consult several guidebooks to give yourself more options and always trust the locals over anything your travel books may say.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but too high-end oriented Feb. 15 2011
    By Samzav
    Format:Paperback
    For the areas, attractions, restaurants and sights covered I found this guide spot on. The problems are 1) it doesn't cover smaller towns which is helpful when you are driving just to know where it might be useful to stop, get lunch, etc 2)the accommodations really focus on high-end places. I have used many other Frommers and moderate is usually around $100-200, but here it was much more. I found myself wishing I had another guide for accomodations.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Next Job is to go and Book the Plane Tickets! June 14 2013
    By Brett H #1 REVIEWER #1 HALL OF FAME
    Format:Paperback
    I have yet to visit New Zealand, though it is high on my list of intentions. Certainly, having read through this guide it has moved to somewhere near the top. The editors have made a huge effort to approach New Zealand from every direction so that whatever your interests and whatever the time scale you are working to, they have covered it.

    The first couple of chapters are general rather than area specific and cover various 'Best of' and Favorite lists such as the Best Beaches, My Favorite Boutique Hotels, The Best of New Zealand outdoors and then general itineraries - the wine lovers tour particularly appealed to me! I guess the purpose of these sections is best viewed as being to whet your appetite. Well worth skimming through as if anything looks particularly interesting to you it may direct you to an area you would not otherwise visit.

    There are then eleven sections which are area specific. There is a lot of emphasis on what is a suitable itinerary given a limited time period. Eg The Bay of Islands in 3 Days or Northland in a week. In this way you are constantly being directed towards what the editors consider are the highlights. A feature of this book is that it comes at any given area from multiple directions. For example in the case of Auckland we have Auckland with Kids, Auckland in One Day, Auckland in Two Days, Favorite Moments in Auckland, Auckland Art and Architecture, Auckland Shopping, Restaurants, etc etc.

    There is a removeable map in a pouch at the back of the book. I suspect this is not large enough scale to be of practical use and will be no substitute for a proper map if you are on a fly drive tour. However, there are plenty of area maps in the text which show places of interest.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Frommer's New Zealand May 10 2002
    By A Customer
    Format:Paperback
    As a first time vistor to New Zealand, I found this book to be extremely helpful. It provided an informative overview of the country, and the various recommendations for accommodations and travel services were, for me, very reliable. I used it constantly both before and during the trip.
