Excellent experience! I did my hand gliding with Dany and had a great time. He made me feel at ease and safe as it was my first time but also made it really fun. I would definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone.

I read a few of the TA reviews before deciding upon which company to fly with. I settled on these guys and am very pleased with the choice we made. Professional, good natured and most importantly - safe! A few of the negative reviews seemed a bit whiny at some of the staff / experiences however I can say that... More

We called on a whim to see about availability the next day, and were thankful they were able to work us in. We were picked up in downtown Queenstown and transported up the mountain for launch. The 3 guides were friendly (especially Tony) and experienced. The flight length varies based on the conditions (~8-12 mins). The views are of the... More

This was a worthwhile experience. My guide Marika was professional and walked me through all of the steps. I would highly recommend Coronet Peak Tandem paragliding.

Fantastic! This is for those looking for a thrill but not willing to jump off a bridge or out of a plane. The staff were knowledgable and friendly. I did Hang Gliding with Andy and he was great.

I think your hang gliding experience really depends on the guide that you're paired to tandem with. My guide ensured I was properly secured. Unfortunately, it seemed that he rushed the glide, when the wind wasn't strong enough, and we ended up landing 3 fields away from the designated landing area. Worst was that he told me to walk to...

Hi Tripadvisor Member, I am sorry to hear you are disappointed about your hang gliding experience. I am not sure if you actually flew with us. It is very rare that hang gliders land out. On March 27th on the early afternoon it happened to some pilots of several companies including us. You talk about flying with Coronet, but that... More
