I booked for a tandem paraglide off the top of the peak for my 30th birthday. Booked at 4.30pm the day before my jump only to be called at 9.15am the next morning to say none of their jumpers could jump as they had been stood down for covid and aren’t free to jump until the following day. Kinda disappointed that they may of known this at time of my booking and didn’t say anything. Rescheduled for a day later and after waiting 15mins at the pick up spot, I called them to ask what was happening and was told the wind was up and I couldn’t jump. I was never called to be advised this - causing me to waste a morning in Queenstown. They said they would look again at the weather at 12:30 and make a call.. that time came and still no call. Upon me calling them I was advised the weather again wasn’t up for jumping. I understand they can’t control the weather however they can control letting their customers know. Due to their poor communication I had a day and a bit wasted in Queenstown as I was waiting to do the jump. Also annoyed that I had to chase the refund, they were about to hang up before I managed to confirm I would be getting my money back. You would think a nz tourist company in the adventure capital of the world would offer better customer service

Had the best day up at Coronet Peak on my Tandem flight! It was the highlight of my trip here in Queenstown, highly recommend. Ask for a flight with Pete! He was awesome and made it the best experience!
