It was an absolute pleasure meeting the team at Gforce today, helpful and efficient from the moment I enquired about flights the pilot Ben was superb, with over 15 years experience, we had a great run over and down the mountain with a few aerobatic manoeuvres towards the end, easy guide instructions

This was an amazing first time paragliding experience. It was mesmerizing! George was fantastic and the take off and landing was so much easier than I thought it would be! I highly recommend thus to anyone. Be prepared to pay the fee to ride the gondola, which was an expense we were not expecting. Still totally worth it!

My son bought me a paragliding experience for my birthday in June 2021 but it had to be cancelled because of Covid, and at the time was secretly relieved because I had felt anxious about paragliding. I never stopped thinking about it though, and as time went by I knew this was something I needed to do, so I set off for Queenstown in April 2022 determined that if paragliding was the only thing I did while there that would be enough. We did lots of amazing things in Queenstown, but the absolute highlight of the trip and one of the greatest moments of my life was paragliding off the top of the mountain over Queenstown on the most perfect autumn day. I am forever grateful to the team at G-Force for their professionalism and facilitating this 5 star experience for me , my anxiety just faded away and was replaced with pure joy (and yeah a little adrenaline). I often watch the video when I need a pick me up and it never fails to bring a grin to my face. Absolutely epic!

Thank you G-force and George for an unforgettable experience for my dad on his 73rd birthday. For someone who has been scared of heights for his entire life he was really thankful to have a kind and funny guide who made him feel comfortable and safe throughout the experience. Thank you so much!
