Very organized. I added a pick up from my hostel and changed hostels last minute and it was no problem they were very accommodating. Konrad made me feel very comfortable from the beginning, and spoke perfect English so it was super easy to go through all the safety prep.

I did hang gliding in Rio with this group and had a great experience. My guide was very knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable and relaxed the whole time. They have 3 GoPro cameras on glider and this gives you multiple angles but only the view of you from the front is free.
