Wow, the best thing you did in Wanaka !! Thanks so much for this glowing review. We are so so lucky to have Allan and the rest of our team of expert guides. Most, like Allan are retired with a wealth of local knowledge to share. They love their job and going by your comment it really shows.... Thanks very much for taking the time to write.

We had a great time in Wanaka end of march. We did the Wild Hills 4WD Safari with George as our driver and tour guide. He gave us lots of information about the private property farmland, how it works, what and how they handle and keep the many thousand cows, sheep and deer.
