We flied today with GForce and we were glad we did. The coaches are super friendly and professional - they tell u exactly what u need to do, and they guide you gently upon departure. When we were in the sky, my coach kept communicating with me about what I like and what I do not like; the height, the... More

It was not in my vacation plan, but when I saw other people paragliding I said to myself, "Flora it's now or never". Dan of GForce Paragliding was very informative and transmitted safety. Great experience, I loved it!

What can one say, from the moment you get onto the chair lift until the moment you touch down it is a thrill ride. The guys at Gfrorce were great and explained every step of the experience and made you feel safe and comfortable.. Would highly recommend the experience and have no hesitation in doing it again

I had the time of my life up in the air. The views were superb and the feeling of zipping through the air was super exhilarating. Brady was a great pilot, super patient, friendly and informative. We had a bit of a wait at the top of the hill for the wind to be coming in the right direction, but... More

I went up the gondola and wasn't thinking of doing the paragliding but went over to make some enquiries anyway and decided on the spot to do it. I was introduced to my pilot, Clem. We went up the luge chairlifts and then walked about ten minutes up to the takeoff spot. With the wind a bit weak, we tried... More

2 of us decided to paraglide and what a view! Both instructors, George and Domonic were very thorough in their safety briefing and ensured that we both had an incredible flight. Took off from the high of the two departure points and experienced the best views of Queenstown. A thrilling experience.

I had the time of my life doing this activity in Queenstown when I last visited ... Can't speak highly enough of it ... It's a bit of a hike from the top of The Skyline Gondola to the takeoff point and once you get there the views are simply incredible ... It was honestly that good and the views... More

My husband and i went paragliding together. I was a little nervous as i'd never done anything like this before but Clem was very professional and made it easy. I was worried about the take off, especially as we were so high, but it was worth it. It was beautiful. The only negative, i thought the photos were a little... More

Hi Skipper84. Thank you for your review on Trip Advisor. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed flying with Clem, she is an amazing pilot.
