Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic way to start the new year -- skydiving for the first time with my four sons. The "beautiful strangers" were friendly and professional and made the whole experience memorable and exhilarating from start to finish. Huge shout out to Average Jack for making what I am sure is a routine jump for him an exciting and personalized one for me. Would highly recommend.

And for those complaining/down-voting because of the photo video packages, these jumpers are doing the best they can in extreme conditions. Yes, the pricing is somewhat usurious, but expecting flawless, movie-studio quality from a wrist mounted camera is ridiculous. Buy the package, preserve the memories, and move on.

I had never been skydiving before but had always wanted to try it as soon as I decided on visiting New Zealand. Skydive Wanaka were brilliant throughout - and my "stranger" Ben was phenomenal and really made me feel at ease (even though I was slightly nervous on the way up!) He also captured some amazing footage from the wrist GoPro camera.

The views on the descent from 15,000 feet were utterly incredible and the freefall was such a huge adrenaline rush.

If you’re going to NZ and your intention is skydiving, do it in Wanaka with this company.
They were so kind and my instructor made me feel comfy and relaxed.
The whole experience was unreal.
Thank you so much, guys.

Hi Thank you for you your great feedback, it really is a great thing to do! We would also love to be able to land at the airfield, this is not possible at Wanaka Airport as their are a lot of aircraft both planes and helicopters taking off and landing. It would be unsafe for our Tandem Instructors to try and navigate this. Thanks
