What our customers say

  • "Thanks for the fantastic Wanaka getaway! From the stunning accommodation to the co-ordination of activities the whole experience was first class. The attention to detail combined with your easy-going style made what was expected to be a bit of an outdoors boy's weekend into a five star experience. Packing the glacier light plane flight, mountain motorbike tour, trout fishing, hiking, clay bird shooting etc. etc. into a four night stay topped off with the private chef was a great escape experience. I will have no hesitation in highly recommending Release and look forward to getting back there sometime soon."
