This is a must go activity for me. Firstly, its something not available everywhere and thus is a special opportunity for those who do not have this activity in their country. Secondly, its safe and the instructors are funny, allowing you to enjoy the skydive. Its really super fun but the only thing that may prevent people from going is... More

stop reading reviews and run to the place to skydive :-). 15,000 feet dive is highly recommended. The place feels very professional all around. Will keep you smiling for hours.

I arrived in Taupo and wanted to jump ASAP. One hour later I was sitting in the plane! Nice weather! I really enjoyed my time with the TTS-Team. They are all awesome. I did my first skydive here and I felt safe with my Instructor. Awesome feeling. I totally enjoyed the first jump and did another one directly after. Two... More

Did a lot of activities in New Zealand, but this one this the most amazing! when i planned my trip for NZ, I know i have to skydive, but i didn't know where. and my choice was right. I took the 15000ft jump, as you should too. Because after you're out of the plane, it takes few second to get... More

This was my first skydive and I am so glad I chose to do it with Taupo Tandem Skydiving! The staff were so friendly and made me feel really comfortable in a nerve-racking situation. They talk you through putting the harness on and make sure you feel safe. We were luck to get beautiful weather and the view was amazing.... More

Wish I could give the fab staff at TTS more than 5 stars. I had been planning a skydive during my time in NZ for a while and they sure didn't disappoint! Just do the 15000 ft jump - you'll regret it if you don't. And get some sort of photo/video package - you will want to relive it. The... More

Though I would love to give such an amazing experience 5 stars. I'm afraid my experience was hindered. I went with my cousin who had opted not to do it. The staff were fun and helpful and full of laughs and lovely to me. My experience was amazing and I recommend it to everyone. The only thing that made the... More

Hi Rhianna, Thanks for the feedback, we do really try to make sure people have an incredible time when skydiving with us so hearing about any way we can improve is very helpful. Great to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us. However I'm sorry that the staff came across as pushy to your cousin. It's a hard line... More

I came here for my first ever skydive, knowing that I couldn't leave New Zealand without completing one! I jumped with three other people who arrived at the same time and all four of us opted to jump from 15,000ft, including photos and video. My tandem master (Tim) was very friendly and put me at ease. I felt quite sick... More

I went with Taupo Tandem for my skydiving experience as several friends recommended them. They didn't disappoint. They were great at staying in touch beforehand and even called to say they were running faster than expected if I wanted to come in earlier. From check-in on, each staff member was friendly and encouraged us to ask any questions we had... More

I jumped from 15.000 ft this time and this is the one I recommend. It gives you more time to enjoy the free fall (about 1 min). One of the best feelings in the world - freedom above everything. Staff was very friendly, on land and up in the air! Prices were a bit chili, but better than Queenstown, for... More
