    Great time flying
    Anna_O, Aug 2022
    I went parasailing with a friend. We wanted to go on Wednesday but it was cloudy, Daniela contacted me to offer us a good spot for Thursday. It was a great tip! Daniela and Luiz are very nice people! My friend was a bit nervous but it immediately disappeared. We didn’t have to wait for anything (except for the right wind). Waiting for the right wind took long this day, but it was totally worth it! I felt safe and had a lot of fun! It’s a great view and Luiz is a very enthusiastic guy. I already told my friends they should go here as well!
    Best Experience. Winter...

    Alex and Daniela are the chilliest couple in Rio! It is a great experience. We also noticed a girl that got nervous last minute and Alex reassured her and make her super comfortable to go thought the experience 10/10

    Daniela and Luis are great!! I am afraid of heights but their treatment and knowledge make the experience the best, fun and safe, I have no doubt that whoever has this experience will be very pleasant!
    WOW!!!!!!!! RIDE OF A LIFETIME!!!!!!
    Preethi_R, Jul 2022
    If I could give 6/5 stars, I would!!! Dani and Luis were absolutely incredible!!!! They made sure that the timing of the paragliding was safe and suitable with the wind patterns and talked my friend and me through each step. You can get photos for free but only pay if you want the backup camera photos for 200 real, TOTALLY worth it. Highly recommend this experience!!!!!
    First time Hang Gliding
    Damien_R, Jul 2022
    Had an amazing time going hang gliding for the first time. The hosts of the event made me feel safe and comfortable. Not to mention they were full of energy and kept everything exciting. I would definitely travel back here to do it again!
    ,Must do‘ in Rio, great 3D film of the flight
    Juergen_H, Jun 2022
    Great experience, a must do in Rio Good communication befor the event, great people, great spot emphasis on safety, felt safe at any time made excellent films/photos using an additional 360 degree camera that allows a total 360 degree view of your flight, not sure if other operator provide this Highly recommended
    Photos/videos price off putting
    Nasir_A, Jun 2022
    Wasn't aware you have to pay 500 reals for all the videos and photos afterwards, it would be good to clarify that this in the description as it makes it a very expensive tour. The flight itself, instructor and views were amazing.

    Amazing Experience!
    Cole_K, Mar 2022
    OMG! What an experience this was! You don’t often get an opportunity like this to see spectacular views! Price is very reasonable for the service. Don’t be frightened of the heights. People in our party were worried just for the initial few seconds taking off, after that the ride is blissful!
    Amazing jump
