    Everything was amazing. Very profesional pilot. Incredible feeling flying above the clouds and very inspiring scenery from above.

    I have been waiting years to hang glide in Rio. Weather prohibited the experience many years ago. But so glad the weather was perfect this trip. Excellent operators. My sky diver was very friendly and gave a lot of confidence and passion for what he does.

    Great experience. It was cancelled a few times due to the weather, so I would recommend booking the hang gliding when you know you have a few days to spare in case. The instructor was friendly and explained everything. Pictures from the Go pro are really good quality. Really good communication through what’s app regarding the weather etc. A must do in Rio.

    A unique experience soaring over a beautiful Rio neighborhood. From its start high up in the National Park, to the brief moment of terror leaking off a Cliff with your guide, to the 7 minutes floating to ground, and safe landing on Pepino Beach, we never had a moment of doubt of our safe return.

    Probably one of the best way to experience Rio de Janeiro with a zest of exhilaration! The organization was perfect with no wait and effortless access to the air, the location is mesmerizing and the staff super friendly. 10 out of 10!

    This was an incredible experience. Mauricio was the perfect instructor and made me feel so safe. I am terrified of heights but wanted to face my fear. They are so quick and efficient with the set up that you don’t have time really to second guess your decision. All of the instructors and people around the place were so nice and friendly and of course the views were amazing. I couldn’t fault it. Highly recommend!

    Very beautiful flight with a fun instructor. I would give it 5 stars if we could have stayed up a bit longer. I am assuming that if this was not about maximizing flights/ day, we could have a 15 min flight as advertised. No one gets a 15 min flight...

    What an awesome experience! First day in Rio and I went straight for it. This was my first time hang gliding and would recommend it to everyone. Klaus was an amazing guide who makes you feel comfortable and safe. Also, get the 360 camera option! Pictures/video were great!

    The hang gliding experience (it was a first for me) was great. Reason why I am giving two stars is because I was up there waiting for almost four hours. My booking was for 10 am, didn’t jump off the platform until past 1:30 pm. It is understandable when there are long lines, and also if the wait is longer than usual because the wind changes and the jumps need to be stopped. But the pilot / instructor dropped me (and two other people) at the platform at 10:15 am (after pickup) and disappeared for the next two hours. We didn’t know what was going on, why the wait was so long, or where the pilot was until he magically appeared at around 12:30. I think the day was overbooked, which obviously shouldn’t have been done. Otherwise the experience was great.

    Knowing the wind caught us and I wasn't plunging to the ground. Carlos, ingee, he spoke magic he held my hand mentally. He is my super hero, because he put faith in my mind. I would have backed out at the last minute, but he spoke magic He is absolutely incredible, and those words fall shy of his greatness
