This was a great experience however it was expensive and it was very short. The guys were very nice and explained everything very well. They did their jobs but I was left feeling slightly cheated.

My seven year old son, a Bear Grylls fan, was desperate to do this! I definitely wasn't keen. However, the staff were so friendly and Brendons (my instructor) was lovely. I was very nervous but I had a great time! The views were incredible and it was such an awesome experience. If my son had not wanted to do it... More

Great fun. Pilots were very helpful and encouraging. Views are amazing. In winter wear really warm clothing as it is very cold in the air out of the sun. Bring as little with you as possible. It will not be possible to take photos on flight. Not good if you have no head for heights. Experience is actually very safe... More

I took advantage of the Tandam paragliding. Although I am afraid of heights,however, the views of queenstown from above made up for it. (September 2010)

It was incredible, you should definitely do this if you ever come to Queenstown. Shout out for my pilot; Richard from Venezuela, he was very nice and fun.
