What our customers say

  • Release Wanaka were very professional and provided expert services plus excellent suggestions and advice. They provided a wealth of information on Wanaka and the environs and their local knowledge and superb organisation greatly facilitated the planning of our holiday. They also organised various events and private catering in addition to taking care of a myriad of details. Release Wanaka and their staff were very friendly and hospitable and kept in touch with us during or stay, checking up on things and providing information and suggestions on local activities, wineries and restaurants. I would have no hesitation in recommending Release Wanaka based on my experience of their services.
