Had an awesome experience ( in the real sense of the word ) today with Thomas paragliding over queens town ! Trilling exhilarating all the superlatives you could possibly use !! Felt so safe under the care of Thomas who made me ( an over 60!!!) feel so safe . Mind you I am still trying to wash evidence of my weight ( am sure their scales weight heavy !) which they write on you hand as if I needed a reminder !! Definitely recommend the entire crew !

My pilot Dominic was very friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Although the weather of the day meant we had to depart from coronets peak instead of the top of the Gondola. The lady in the office who pick up my call and helped me with the last-minute booking was very helpful. The whole experience was a thrill and would definitely do again!!

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.

I wanted to go paragliding since I saw some people doing it when I last visited Queenstown. I am soooo happy I bit the bullet and did it. It was an experience I will never forget! My pilot Thomas was super nice and put me straight at ease because he knew I was nervous. He explained everything to me and I never once felt like I was not in safe hands. Even with the trouble I had with signing in they were kind and let me partake. He explained how paragliding works and how to become a paraglider which was very fascinating. The views were spectacular, even when the take off point had to be moved to Coronet peak due to wind. All of the team at Gforce were friendly and professional. It was my most favourite memory of my trip and one I will treasure forever. I 100% recommend doing it and will be recommending to everyone I know. Thankyou Gforce for an unforgettable experience!
