    A great way to spend my 50th birthday
    What an amazing experience! From beginning to end, it was brilliant. Due to weather, our glide was delayed and moved to a different location but I couldn't have asked for more. Special mentions to Nathan who was busy reorganising and rebooking people, organising buses and new locations. He did it all with a smile and with professionalism and also to Thomas who was my Glider - I couldn't have asked for a more professional and fun person to take me in my first paraglide. Thanks gents!!!

    An experience you will never forget!
    Customer service was 10/10 from booking right through till we landed. Can’t fault a single thing. Friendly, enthusiastic, helpful and a lovely bloke, my flyer was amazing! He took the time to explain what he was doing and why when catching wind drifts, lovely conversation and amendable to be wanting to be a dare devil by incorporating some aerobatics into out flight. Amazing! I would do it again a thousand times! And I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

    Fantabulously Thrilling
    It was my first paragliding experience and all I can say is that it was the best thing I have ever done !!! The whole experience from take off to gliding in the air and then landing was very smooth and excellent. The photos and video taken by my pilot Tom are beautiful. I loved every moment of it.

    Tandem paragliding.
    I am not great with heights, but Dom relaxed me straight away with his instruction and Kiwi professionalism. I had an awesome time and would gladly do it all over again. If you're not sure, I would say just do it. You only live once.

    Had so much fun soaring over Queenstown!
    Super awesome experience. Signed up to do it on a whim after we saw some other people gliding over town and they were able to fit me and my husband into their schedule. Buzz and Todd were great flight guides. It felt safe the entire time and I loved having a birds eye view of beautiful Queenstown.

    Absolutely freakin awesome
    Me and my mum did for the first time of our life paragliding and wouaaah what a blessing, what a wonderful experience. I have flight with Marieka and she was extremely nice, professional, explaining really well, asking regularly for feedback, proposing when i felt safe to do some trick at my own pace. Nonetheless my mum and me want to do it again but it inspired as well my mum to do one day some skydiving

    It might look a bit scary - but it's very smooth and easy and relaxing. CLEM was my instructor / host. She was so good! Highly recommended. You will not regret this investment in fun.

    Sensational
    My hubby and I did this on our honeymoon and it was such a blast. It was an impromptu decision we will never regret and probably the highlight of an incredible Queenstown holiday. The staff are so amazing that we had no nerves, just enjoyed the magnificent sensation of flying over one of the most picturesque locations in the world. Thanks Nat for your encouragement. Wouldn’t have done it without you. An absolute must do when in Queenstown.

Really enjoyed this experience. We were split between this and bunjy jumping but felt that paragliding was a little less scary and better value for money as you spend more time in the air!

Our guide and tandem jumpers were calm and collected, giving clear instructions on how we would set off. Whilst in the air, the instructor took the time to explain the scenery and took photos/video of the experience.

Optionally you can ask/agree to do some sharp turns whilst in the air - it feels like a rollercoaster.

Recommend for all queenstown visitors!

Located at the top of the gondola ride in in the city of Queenstown, NZ. it was professionally and safely managed and operated for my experience. Very explicit instructions on procedure and safety provided before execution of the magnificent ride with tremendous views of the city and topography. Picures and video taken during the flight for optional purchase ($60 NZ dollars). My pilot was George who had a wonderful and professional demeanor and as well as lots of experience.

Be sure and call in advance for reservations as inclement weather and/or
windy conditions can shut down the ride on short notice.

I screwed up my courage dial and took this paragliding trip and I'm glad I did. Launching was the scariest part - running over the edge of a cliff to fill the sail and take off. But once you were sailing it was so peaceful and beautiful. Tandem piolt Todd was very professional and experienced and I felt confident with him in command. $249 price is a little steep for such a short ride - maybe 10 min - but it was very convenient at the top of the gondola and felt safe.

An absolutely amazing experience - would highly recommend, the instructor was knowledgeable and friendly, and offered for us to do a couple acrobatic tricks such as going upside down. He also took some great photos of both me and both of us which I bought, and think are great. The scenery was also incredible, and I’m so happy of all places I did it here.

It was simply amazing.

The pilot was very personable and explained what I needed to do in a gentle bantering manner.

I’m not usually comfortable around heights and the experience, for me, was not scary.

Exhilarating and thrilling.

I like how you can view the video and photos to opt in/out of purchasing them.

The check in was seamless and our wait wasn’t too bad given there were queues at the bottom of the gondola that delayed the earlier jumps. As it was, it was 30min for us to get to the top after joining the queue. I’d recommend allowing extra time for the inevitable gondola queues to get to the top during busy the holiday period and peak times.

We had a great time paragliding. They modified our flights based on what we felt comfortable with. My wife wanted a nice floating ride and I wanted a bit more excitement. Both pilots did a great job of making us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend GForce!

The minute we arrived in Queenstown my 9 year old daughter decided she wanted to Paraglide. We were up the top of the Skyline Gondola doing the luge and we booked her in with the friendly and helpful staff at the G Force desk.
Peter was her pilot and he was fantastic and made her feel safe and comfortable during the whole pre-flight and flight experience. He took some amazing in-flight photos and videos which we bought after the flight.
It's not cheap but worth every cent.

Safety is our priority, so we’re happy to know this shone through for you, as for her.

Do not recommend. After making a 1.5 hour trip into Queenstown, waiting in huge lines and paying $88 for Gondola tickets (which are not included in price) to get to where the experience is supposed to take place, while standing outside the GForce office we received a text (24 minutes prior to when we supposed to be there) to say they were closed. I was told on the phone that I should have checked the website, something I wasn't told to do upon booking.

Communication is so poor, very disappointing. I have now read other reviews with similar experiences - wish I had read these prior to booking.

Thank you for your feedback . Unfortunately we were closed that day due to weather conditions and your flight was refunded 100% . Although you purchased your flight through a 3rd party website, the Check-in procedures are very clear on our Website regarding checking our flying status 30 minutes prior to your flight. Our Office staff did in fact try to contact you earlier that morning and we do try our best to contact all of our passengers on a closed day. We empathise with you that you were unable to Fly with us, unfortunately weather conditions are out of our control. All the best for your next adventure .

This is one of the best things I've ever done! My pilot Dominic was absolutely brilliant - professional and made sure I felt safe and comfortable the whole time. The views were spectacular!! We made the most of the conditions on the day and were able to have an impressively high and long flight time, a real bonus! Was such a calming feeling sailing above all the spectacular scenery. Would definitely recommend gforce paragliding, thank you for making my experience so awesome!

First time paragliding and we took flight with Gavin & Brendan. These guys were excellent. Really friendly, had a great conversation with them both which helped with the nerves. They confidently talked us through the process and what will happen and when, then before we knew it, we were mid flight and loving every second of it.
Smooth easy landing and the photos/videos they take are 100% worth the money.

Great trip, worth every penny. 5*
