I loved the skydive so much.Was such an amazing place to jump over so much to see. You are looking down on a huge crater and on a clear day like mine you can see the top and bottom of the north island of New Zealand. Prices were better than some others in New Zealand but i didn't get a... More

My fifteen year old daughter used Tandem for her first skydive. They were excellent. Very safe and well organised and beginners should feel very reassured. Most of all it is fantastic fun (although not for those watching!!!).

Entertaining and friendly staff ensures this experience is one you will never remember. Prices are very reasonable for what you are getting, and the edited freefall video is extremely well done. Would definitely return!

We were originally supposed to go the day we were in Taupo but the weather didn't cooperate. They were amazing and picked us up in Rotorua 2 days later when the weather was better! We had only planned to do the 12,000 ft jump but the team all recommended the 15,000 ft so we did that instead, no regrets! The... More

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!!

Just frustrating that the wait hours is more than 2 hrs. Friendly staff and all but they could be more effiecient with managing time or letting us know the expected time to flu

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

All the staff are super friendly, from the reception to the tandem guides themselves. 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
