My armchair view of Queenstown was fantastic. The take off & landing were text book stuff. Thanks, Gavin, for a fabulous experience.

I did not plan to strap myself to a stranger in QT and run off a cliff...but that is what I did. These guys were so friendly but extremely professional. I was tentative and nervous but made to feel quite at ease by Gavin. I could not fault the whole experience and was on a high for the rest of... More

These guys are great, awesome staff and a sweet deal from the top of the gondola! Unless you're going to pay for a heli-tour this is a great option and exciting!

It's such an unforgettable experience to do paragliding in Queenstown with Gforce last March this year, 2014. :) I got a discount because of their early bird deal (first flight in the morning). Great value for money. When we were up there, I was amazed with the beautiful nature and breathtaking view of Queenstown. I like it when we were... More

Tim was my pilot and was fantastic from explaining all the bits and pieces and safety requirements to giving me an amazing glide with dips and turns. The landing was surprisingly smooth and easy and overall it was just the most awesome experience. I brought the CD with photos... More

Very professional and funny but also took time to explain things to one of our group who was a little hesitant! The views were great as were the video and photos we got in our pack.... More
