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

Amazing feeling flying like a bird, gently swooshing looking over the view of Queenstown, Georges very safe and experienced, a belated 60th birthday present to myself.

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.

Amazing way to see the Queenstown area. The guys are outgoing & confident and really make everyone feel safe and relaxed. This was such a highlight in our adventure. Highly recommend saving your $$$ to include this in your activities while you are in Queenstown.

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

I am a person who suffers a fear of heights but on a whim decided to book my husband and I on a tandem flight. We were lucky as we were the last two of the day before the wind changed and cancelled all other flights. I can see why people say book early in your trip in case your... More

This was awesome. My fiancé and I decided after doing the shotover jet to do try something a bit more out of our comfort zone. Our tandem partners/instructors Thomas and Clem were fantastic. A thorough run down and then it's on with the gear and off you go. I think their scales are out though. Soon as you leave the... More

I booked a flight online for 14:30 next day because it is free skyline Gondola if book online directly. it was on hold in the morning due to the weather, but we are lucky weather is good after 12. Pilot is good, he let me control the fly for a bit. even it was short flight time ( around 8... More
