Subject: come visit New Zealand
Hi Mohammed and all the Group (4 that matter)

You said you are interested in visiting New Zealand and 4 any one else thinking of it. The best is Summer time, which is November, February, March. Not much rain then, it can get up to 30oC, especially December. There is lots of walks or tramps if you enjoy the bush, eg lots of native walks around. I am not really into that.

But there are many Bus tours that can take like a month, around most of the country, or just see some of the major Hightlights New Zealand is know for. Like the Maori culture, being welcomed on the Marae, is called a Powhiri, pressing noses together - hongi is their way on greeting you. Seeing sheep shorned, as sheep is big time here, lots of farms, and cows milk. Rotorua has lots of cultural things, if you want just a quick visit. The Thermal pools of Rotorua are popular, but you get get a certain smell with that.

Sorry i don't know much about Tours, but you can check the Internet. A good New Zealand Search Engine is http://www.nzsearch.co.nz or try out http://www.newzealand.com has some great information.

Some Bus tours here are called 'Waipawa Buses' http://www.wbuses.co.nz 'Nimons Buses' http://www.nimons.co.nz 'Newmans Coach Lines', 'Intercity Coachlines' :these are some that offer country-wide tours.
