Oh my goodness, this was so awesome! The guys were so great, telling us exactly what was going to happen. They also were really good at giving my husband a more sedate ride while I got to do loops! It's quite a walk to the top but that just adds to the excitement! It was expensive for the length of... More

While visiting Bob's Peak we went Paragliding for the first time. The staff is so friendly and very accommodating. Not only was this the first time Paragliding, we loved it so much we went a second time two days later! Can be a little intimidating the first time, but the entire staff is so nice and makes you feel at... More

A great flight with g-force, it included the gondola ride as well as the chairlift which was great. There was also a beautiful but exhausting hike up the mountain. However, it would be a lot better if there was no pressure after the flight for us to purchase their photos and videos. There was not ample time for passengers to... More

Feared of few adventures I didn't get a chance to do paragliding and me and my wife were hesitant to go, but later went for it and had an amazing experience and wanted to go again. The staffs were so friendly and booked the tour at Information centre in Queenstown and they said they are flexible with time so booked... More

27th May, 2015 5:00 pm Was an awesome tandem paragliding experience with Mike (the instructor) Well something i would love to mention here is that Mike has been doing this since 20+ years with 8000+ successful paraglides. Which I feel is really great in itself. The Paraglide- I was the last one to take off. Sun was just about to... More

Not much to say really. Great views going up the gondola and from the top, and of course absolutely incredible views while paragliding. A good bit of adrenaline, especially when running of the side of the hill/mountain and when they take you for a bit of spinning. Very friendly instructors and some great photos & video footage from the GoPro!

We went up the gondola at 9 am (short line) to take advantage of early bird price. We had called to reserve the day before as we had trouble from hotel room trying to book online. Be aware that if you're there for a short visit, take advantage of good weather & go that day. Of the 3 days we... More

If you choose to do this ( I highly recommend you do), go on a clear day and wear sunglasses, it looks scary but once you jump off the cliff the views just take over and all fears abate. I chose this over bun-jee jumping since it lasted longer and the views are a lot nicer. Even if you go... More

This really felt like the ultimate way to experience Queenstown and the mesmerising views of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables. It was amazing to be gliding through the air with the breeze passing my face, in the brilliant sunny weather, admiring the incredible views before my eyes. It was truly breathtaking and something I will never forget. It was the... More
