“Excellent Professional and Safe Company”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

I loved my two experiences sky diving with Taupo Tandem Skydiving. All of the equipment and plane were high quality, comfortable and made me feel safe. Furthermore, the certified sky divers that you dive with are very fun, friendly, and yet professional. I did the 15000 ft sky dive which was tons of fun but also very scenic.

“Couldn't have asked for a better experience!”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

This company made the skydive one of the best experiences of our honeymoon. Friendly and professional from start to finish - I was totally put at ease. We went for the 15,000ft jump and declined the various photo/dvd/t-shirt packages - I was pleased to see that the 'upselling' wasn't too persistant. Perfick!

“Attention to Detail where you REALLY want it!”
Reviewed 7 December 2011

I made my husband wait to do this activity until our three sons were grown - but had I known of Taupo Tandem Skydiving I'd have let him do it sooner!! They look after everybody here - even the nervous-nelly non-jumping spouse. I've been a US Travel Agent for 32 years and was very impressed with the whole outfit, from the focus on safety to the gentle comic-relief humor. A special "shout out" to Jenna, who walked us through the entire process with such kindness and grace. If you've been waiting - DON'T!!!!!!! And consider the upgrade to include a videographer - we love showing the experience to friends at home.

“Absolutely exhilarating!”
Reviewed 13 October 2011

Taupo is the cheapest place in NZ to do a skydive and TTS is definitely the place to do it. There's no doubt about it, the skydive itself is absolutely out of this world. Definitely go for the 15000ft as opposed to the 12000ft. Its no difference in how scared you are, but you get a longer time to experience it as the bad thing about them is that they are over in no time and as soon as you touch the ground you're eager to go back up. The team are very friendly and professional, nice smooth landings! It does feel a little like a production line, no sooner have you landed they're off to get attached to the next tandem.
The only downside is the pics/dvd. You have to get a package, there's no paying for it individually. The freefall pics we got were great, we weren't fussed about a dvd but it came with the pics anyway as they have to send another diver up to do it. The dvd isn't personalised at all, its a few minutes of you falling and the rest is everyone else who was in the plane with you - so not really worth it, and its quite poor quality.
