I had planned to go skydiving not once, not twice, but three times--and each time ended up being canceled due to the cloud layer. So, decided to give paragliding a try instead and so glad we did (my partner came along too). Such a thrilling experience, yet also very calming at the same time. Our pilots, both named Todd, were...

Included in the price of the ticket you get a ride up the gondola to the paraglide place which is nice, when you do get up there they are efficient and i met my glide master Dean who talked me through it when we went up. The glide is amazing and i loved every minute, they tailor what you want... More

If you go one place in NZ, go to Queenstown. If you do one thing in Queenstown, do this. Did it on a whim after taking quiet gondola ride to top of mountain. Loved it so much in 2011 that I went back and did it again in 2014 only this time my wife did it too in celebration of... More

The list of possible activities in Queenstown can be quite overwhelming, if your trying to decide what to do look no further and book paragliding already. I have had the opportunity to do most of the excursions in the area and I believe paragliding is one of the best! Gforce is very professional and truly work hard to deliver the... More

Never tried paragliding in my life and have to say that I wasn't disappointed! Great view of the city and Lake Wakatipu. Some advice for you when making your booking: 1) Try to book in advance online, your gondola ride to the top is included in this booking. 2) Be sure to have some flexibility in the mornings of your...

Thomas gave our 14 year old son the thrill of a lifetime. Very professional. The photos and the video were well worth purchasing at the end. Beautiful location. A must do in Queenstown.

The agent asked, is gondola cost included (yes), Do I need to take payment now (no) At Gondola told I needed a voucher to get up or pay $32. Rang thru to GForce on direct phone, after 20 mins...

Hi Chalky9000. Thank you for your review on trip advisor. It appears that there must have been some misunderstanding with the agent that you visited. Agents are required to take payment in advance and provide the client with a flight voucher which they present to us on arrival. The fact that your agent did not know this procedure suggests to...
