My first jump wouldn't have been as amazing as it was if it wasn't for Taupo Tandem Skydiving! I jumped with Ian and he was absolutely awesome!! He made it a perfect experience!!! I wanted to jump again right as I landed so I will fly to NZ again just to jump with these guys!! Thank you TTS!!
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.

The experience of freefalling from the plane is incredible, and the freefall part happens very quickly, whilst the parachute part is more "leisurely" and gives more chance to admire the incredible view. At no point did I feel unsafe.
In summary, don't worry and just do this - you won't regret it!

I was only there as a visitor watching my daughter's friend jumping, but I couldn't have been made more welcome, I had several of the staff come and keep me updated on progress of my friends jump. while watching her up in the air the lady with us with the radio was telling us what was happening. I was also invited to go and have a look at the video after. I was very impressed with the whole place and people there, even after they realised I was a local. Given the opportunity I will definitely be telling people to go there.

If you are going to jump out of a plane, might as well pay a little more and do 15,000 feet. It goes by so quickly I couldn't have imagined jumping from 12,000. Overall highly recommended!
Brilliant. Just brilliant. Racing towards the lake at over 200kph - cheeks flapping! Landing - earth never felt so good. Try it - you will never regret it.

There are no words to describe it, other than: It was probably the best experience of my whole life! It is absolutely amazing! The place is incredibly beautiful. The view of the whole fall is amazing, like the ultimate post card! The jump itself feels very safe. These guys definitely know what they are doing and they enjoy doing it too. The Tandem Skydive in Taupo has the best price in the whole of New Zealand and it probably the most beautiful one. The guy who I jumped with had 7 thousand jumps in his career! DO NOT MISS IT! It's an experience you will not forget for the rest of your life, I guarantee!
Very professional, seamless operation from instructions and safety information to quick production of freefall videos soon after landing. Your professional tandem diver keeps you relaxed throughout.
Amazing Experience!! Very highly recommend Taupo Tandem Skydiving. Very polite staff and very professional.

Nearly a week later and I'm still buzzing - absolutely amazing experience!! Darcy was an awesome tandem master, really put me at ease (as much as you could be, prior to hurling yourself out of a plane 3 miles up!!) I can't wait to do it again, seriously...I really, really want to have another go. Thanks to all for making the experience so amazing - you guys rock!

F#?@ing awesome!!! Staff were friendly and informative. They didn't leave any questions to be asked! Very safe and professional - PLUS they take you to 15k ft!
Amazing with great staff to help with nerves. Loads of packages on off to suit everyone. Definitely worth every dollar.

One of the greatest experiences! The people of Taupo tandem skydiving are very friendly and inform you well. Tip: take a cameraman with your skydive so you can re-live it over and over.
These guys are the business and you'd be mad to go anywhere else. Great communications beforehand (skydiving is so touch and go with the weather), smiling faces, great facility. My daughter jumped too and she is only 11 and hearing impaired, so I needed to be able to have full faith in TTS. Brad was brilliant and made the whole experience amazing for her and reassuring for me. She now has the bug!

Well I'm alive.... So that's a big plus! These guys are great, i had an amazing experience that i will never forget thanks to all the awesome photos which they took! A great price too. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a place to skydive in NZ. Taupo is beautiful

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.
"Hey guys.thanks for the most amazing 60 seconds of my life yesterday.still can't put into words the feeling of falling from 15000 feet.awesome!I've left you a sweet review on tripadviser.com.cheers guys! Mikey is the man! PEACE!"
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.

“The best thing you can do with your clothes on.”
I have been and done some great things all around the world. Who would have guessed one of the best things would only be a couple of hours from home. I foolishly agreed with a friend that I would accompany her on a skydive for her 50th birthday. Walking in I was very scared and not sure if I could go thru with the jump, but the professionalism from the minute you walk into the office till the second you jump out the plane is top notch and made me a lot more at ease with the whole thing. In the end jumping out was easy. I am sure skydiving anywhere in the world is amazing, but the scenery around Taupo makes it even more so. Every thing was so well organised, my Tandem Master Patrik was brilliant and the video footage I have is magnificent.
I would say this is a once in a lifetime experience, but it is better than that, once you have done it once you will want to do it again, I do. Do not go thru Taupo without going here. Thank you so much to Patrik and the team at Taupo Tandem Skydiving

When you are offering such a cool activity as skydiving (and on such a beautiful location) it is almost 'normal' that everybody is commonly positive about it. However the service and enthusiasm of the entire team at TTS (from front desk to tandem masters) makes your experience even better!
