It was my first time tandem paragliding and though a bit nervous, my instructor- Tony, made it feel too easy. We were paragliding for about 20 minutes because we caught a lot of air. It was amazing, you definitely feel like you are flying. For the price, this is way better than bungy jumping and far less as well!

Everyone was going to the highest peak and I was asked if I wanted to do that for another $16. If everyone was going anyways it seemed silly to... More

I'm not ashamed to say I was terrified about paragliding and was at the top of the hill wondering what on earth someone with a fear of heights was thinking of but wow, what an amazing experience, loved every second and bought the videos and photos after. So glad I did this, if I can do it anyone can!!!

This was amazing! Everything was just awesome. My partner and I went paragliding from the higher spot and it was amazing. The views of course are amazing but our guides really made it amazing. The Go Pro footage and photos they get are great and worth purchasing at the end. It is so peaceful and when you do the tricks... More

This was a great way to see in my 60th birthday. It felt like I was only in the air for 5 minutes but it was longer. The view of the mountains and the scenery is amazing.
