The top experience of our NZ trip. We were worried it wouldn't happen because the clouds cancelled our first scheduled jump, and the next day, the wind came into question. They are extremely careful, and only operate when the weather is completely safe. They never put their customers or instructors safety at risk. The jump was awesome and the views... More

My instructor was Joel Corbett, and he did a great job. The main thing is that he landed without killing me so I have to respect that!!! Seriously though, the team at TTS were very professional from beginning to end. Violet was polite enough to call me in the morning to let me know that the weather was good for... More

A good experience for me. My tandem master is Hamish Funnell. He is very good. He explained all the steps to me on what should I do when we jump down. I love him so much. Thanks a lot. xoxo

A must do! Everything was well taken care of by the staff, from administration and logistics to the jump itself. Seamless coordination, no confusion experienced at all. Did the 15000ft jump with Rob, who was professional, friendly and gentle...it really put me at ease.

I had such a great time jumping with TTE. They are outstanding professional people, especially Rob, who was my instructor and tandem master during the jump. I only have good words for him, amazing human being and professional. I highly recommend people to jump with him. In short, jumping with you guys was an incredible experience.

Skydiving is something I never thought I would be able to do (mainly due to cost), but after jumping with TTS, I believe it is something everyone has to do at least once. The team was friendly and patient, my instructor, Mike, was pretty darn awesome especially. Jumping in Taupo is a must, the view is phenomenal; you see Tongariro,... More

Due to strong winds, I had to go up 3 times before finally jumping, but the wait was all worth it! Best time ever, and the instructors were all incredibly friendly and cool. No doubt the best activity to do in Taupo!

Totally spent more money than I had but don't have a single regret. If you're in Taupo don't miss the rush of leaping out of a plane. :P 15,000 all the way! Thanks to my instructor Elad Berger! Calm and cool all the way down.

Awesome that you went to 15,000 ft - nothing beats 60 seconds of freefall! Hopefully we'll see you again someday! More
