anyway, we had a shit tour guide who was more interested in taking pictures and being touristy than.. well, guiding. he kept talking about the south island, when we were touring the NORTH island. he is also, really not funny. think about the guy from high school who didn't know any jokes not involving porn. yea. really. and wouldn't shut up. now, think 46.
that's how annoying he was.
we only started to have fun we mutinied in the second last day or something, armed ourselves with brochures and took over the tour ourselves with the bus driver.
anyway, travellers, i suggest you skip the tours (unless maybe if you're with excellent or some other company that specialises in nz) and go caravaning for a couple of months instead. MUCH more fun that way. and less chinese food with overcooked fish.
