me and my sister wanted to do this and i called and booked everything for us and kindly got a good deal with ther man i spoke to, i had to call and rearrange the time a few times due to other things which we had forgotten about! and they were very understanding and still gave us a good deal.
the paragliding itself was really good, the weather wasnt amazing and a few of the later flights didnt get as good a trip (which is kind of what you have to take into account when you choose to do something like this)
it was a short drive upto coronet peaks and you get free pick up from queenstown town centre :)
i was the first to "fly" as they called it :) out of our group of five and you get about 15 minutes flight time with free pictures and its either $40 for your pictures and a video burned onto a cd or $45 for the 4gb SD card with everything on, i got the SD card as my notebook only holds sd and doesnt have a disk drive so it was perfect
they let you view the videos and pictures while they pack away the wing which is cool, the gent who i flew with was very friendly and chatted to me throughout about the scenery and what id been upto travelling.
i felt very safe and secure and wasnt scared at all! as long as you listen to what they tell you its fine, run walk stand up basically hahahah!
saw a hawk and the wild mountain goats was lovely although i wish we could have done it for longer
thank you so much for an amazing expierience and definately reccomend this to anyone who wants to do something exciting but doesnt quite fancy a sky dive or a bungy just yet!! :)
your out for about 2 hours, the majorety is the 10 minute safety talk, the driving and waiting for the others to land (this doesnt take long and you are watching your video so its not like, actually waiting.)
