Hello all, am heading to NZ for 14.5 days in end Oct, any advice if this draft itinerary is okay for 4 pax group ?

Day 0 First pair touching down Auckland almost midnight, will stay near airport or city area.
Day 1 Explore Auckland City (second pair touching down in the afternoon)
Day 2 Coromendel (cathedral cove + hot water beach + perhaps some trail). Accomm @ Rotorua
Day 3 Waitomo (black water rafting + glowworm cave), Rotorua (kuirau park + wai o tapu). Accomm @ Rotorua
Day 4 Lake Taupo (huka falls + rapids jet + wairakei), Tongario National Park. Accomm @ TBC
Day 5 Wellington. Flying to Queenstown at night or next day morning. Accomm @ TBC
Day 6 Queenstown (skyline queenstown + fregburger + lake wakatipu). Accomm @ Queenstown
Day 7 Te Anau (milford sound, mirror lake) Accomm @ Te Anau
Day 8 Dunedin. Accomm @ Dunedin
Day 9 Lake Tekapo, Stargazing tour at Mt John at night. Accomm @ Lake Tekapo
Day 10 Lake Pukaki, Mt Cook (hooker valley track + tasman glacier lake track). Accomm @ Mt Cook
Day 11 Glenorchy, Lindis Pass, Arrowtown, Queenstown. Accomm @ Queenstown
Day 12 Wanaka (lake wanaka, roys peak). Fox Glacier / Franz Josef Glacier. Accomm @ TBC
Day 13 TBC. Thinking of heading to Hokitika and Arthur's Pass, but not sure yet. Worth the journey?
Day 14 Akaroa. Christchurch. Accomm @ Christchurch
Day 15 Flight back to SG after lunch.

Questions:
- Milford Sound or Doubtful Sound?
- Fox Glacier or Franz Josef Glacier? Is heli-hike worth it?
- Any recommendation on where to go on Day 13? Or would it be better to spread out Day 11 & 12.
- Where to go for skydiving?
- Anyone taken the TranzAlpine Scenic train? Is it worth it?
- Is it worth going to Wellington and Dunedin?
- Anyone been to wine trail?

Many thanks in advance!
