While touring NZ we were told we had to sky dive. This place was recommended to us by some friends, and it couldn't have been any better. From the moment we arrived the staff was friendly and approachable. They made sure to answer everyone's questions, and they had a great air of confidence. It was very relaxing. The people we... More

My boyfriend and I decided to go sky diving a few months ago, chose TTS and from the booking to the day I was petrified. Driving to the airport, absolutely freaking out. When we arrived the people at the counter were amazing, the customer service was great and they made me feel very comfortable and a lot calmer. This continued... More

We were meant to be going on a huka falls jet boat but that got cancelled so instead we did a skydive! I was petrified but all the team here were fantastic! Great sense of humour and really put me at ease! It is honestly one of the best things I've ever done!! Plus the views over Taupo are awesome!!

Hi Ryan, Thanks for the review, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your time with us at TTS. From looking at our system it looks like you didn't actually get to jump - that can definitely be frustrating. Unfortunately skydiving is a weather dependent operation, meaning that we are completely at the mercy of the cloud, rain, wind... More

The whole experience was filled with laughter, and they did everything they could to make the atmosphere light and exciting. The tandem guides are very well-trained, professional and have loads of experience, making you feel safe. I recommend booking the photo and video package as well,... More

My wife and I did the 15000 ft jump on 27 March 2014. I have done before in Taupo but my wife from Czech Republic was first time jumper in Taupo. We both enjoyed the jump and the photos and video.
