What our happy customers have to say…

Will and crew are the most professional top notch humans you will ever meet. He picked us up from the airport, and from that moment on, we were completely dialed. We stayed at a beautiful home in Moiwa, outfitted with all the amenities we needed for cooking, and for a relaxing stay. Several onsens were in walking distance, which made the stay that much more memorable. Will was on call to help us with translation, driving us to resorts, and hunting out the best snow in the area. I highly recommend using Explore Wanaka’s services, whether it’s a guided film trip, or the ultimate shred vacation,

“WillJ with Explore Wanaka was awesome to help assist us on our media trip
out to NZ. They helped us out organising our logistics and put us in touch
with all the best local connections to make sure we had the best and most
productive time out there. I would for sure recommend other Brands or
Clients to work with him when they are in NZ. We are looking forward to get
more trips dialled with Will when we come back next season ”

Fun day at Wanaka golf course,
I had a fun day out on Wanaka golf course wth Explore Wanaka’s head guide Will Jackways. Will helped find a suitable place to stay and advised on the several golf courses to choose from in the southern lakes area. His service was prompt, professional and very helpful. Would recommend these guys anytime!

So thankful for today. I came to New Zealand with very little expectations, knowing there is always a lot of weather and i had a short window of time here, I mostly intended on having a free spirited trip with some of my close friends and fam… wanted to drink the pure water and eat at all the good restaurants, visit the ocean and have fun on my board. Thankful to say the least I love New Zealand! Thank you Will Jackways and Explore Wanaka for a trip for the books!!

“Will from Explore Wanaka set up our media trip with the Heli operations in Wanaka fast and efficiently. We were able to get in contact with the right people quickly and get everything dialled for our last minute shoot. I`d definitely recommend using Explore Wanaka for any future clients who are looking to work with true professionals and will definitely be using Will to help organise our travel and shoots next year.”

Will jackways and I had an insane day boosting around TC the other day. He’s started up Explore Wanaka and now we can all get stuck into his vast knowledge of this area to make the most of a fresh storm or a trip down here.
