The itinerary includes 16 breakfasts, 17 lunches and 7 dinners. Usually the group and the guide prepare the meals together as many of the meals are picnic style lunches or dinners. Breakfasts are generally buffet/continental style; lunches are sandwiches, salads and fruit.

There is no bad time really, but the weather can play and important role. Weather in New Zealand is very changeable throughout the year and all months are moderately wet. Fine sunny spells can happen at any time of year but the departures have been timed to coincide with the best chance of good weather; although you should come prepared for rain. The temperature in Auckland will vary from approximately 11-30C (minmax) from October-March however it will be slightly cooler in October. The weather on the South Island will be slightly cooler with a range of temperatures of approx 7-20C (min-max).
