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.

UNFORGETTABLE FLIGHT!

I chose a hang gliding experience and it was a highlight of my time in New Zealand. Every single person we interacted with was friendly and welcoming. They give you plenty of information beforehand and during so you know where to park, where to meet and when, and have a good sense of the itinerary. It was, fortunately, a beautiful day and we only had to wait a short while for the wind to cooperate so that we could safely launch off. Coronet Peak is a gorgeous place to overlook the valley. It certainly seemed like this was the best views you could get in the area!

My guide, Pablo, was not only extremely experienced and knowledgeable, but also personable and engaging. I felt safe and comfortable AND was having a blast with his picture posing ideas!! He catered the flight to my preferences, so we did some fun turning maneuvers and he taught me about how the glider flies.

This was an experience I'll be talking about forever, do not hesitate to add this into your Queenstown adventure bucket list!!

Amazing. Pat made sure that I felt safe the whole time and was joking with me the whole time. Also he did a great job at getting photos and videos that I could send home

What an amazing experience! My pilot, Cagri, was fantastic--so much fun and kind, and he knew what he was doing, which meant that I could relax and enjoy myself and really take in both the peace and the excitement (the good kind!) of the whole experience--wow! Cagri also took great pictures and video, letting me relive this memory of a lifetime--truly, I can't believe I did this, jumped off that mountain into the sky! But I did! Unforgettable! The rest of the staff I dealt with was great, too, and the booking and process was easy. I highly recommend this! Thank you, SkyTrek!

This is one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had!! The feeling at take off when the wind picks you up and during the flight is just not possible to put into words. All the crew were really nice and friendly and especially the pilot was fantastic! He gave me an extremely relaxed feeling by making jokes and explaining all kinds of things. This experience was everything you could have asked for, would recommend to anyone!

Amazing experience with Skytrek ! Absolutely stunning views and the tandem master, Jack, made me feel safe and relaxed. He even let me take control at one point! Thoroughly enjoyed all the spins and turns as well! Great mix of scenic and excitement, though if you’d prefer a more relaxed flight they would happily do that for you as well! Highly recommend, thanks team!

This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Queenstown. Paragliding was so much fun and the staff were fantastic. It seemed like we were in the air for ages, so we really got to settle in and enjoy it. We were also given heaps of great photos and videos to choose from. A once in a lifetime experience!

How beautiful CREATION is from above!!! Not only did I have a wonderful time, but Keith/ParaGliding Pilot was most accommodating!!! And…from start-to-finish (our meeting point at Camp Street, the check-in team, flight team and van driver while all of us were enroute to the launching site/s, etc…), this was a memorable experience in fondness. Should I return to Queenstown, I’d fly with SkyTrek again!!!! Enjoy!
