      Unforgettable experience!
      Our family of 4 had an absolutely amazing experience hang gliding in Rio guided by Renato and Beto. We were nervous beforehand but they were friendly, funny, engaging, skilled and made us feel at ease and comfortable throughout the activity. I coordinated with Mariana for the scheduling and she was very prompt and helpful with her communications. I would totally recommend using these guys if you want to hang glide in Rio!

      Good but be ready to wait
      Very nice experience. But you have to be patient sometimes. Had to wait 2.5 hours for the wind to come. Some people very more lucky with timing ⏱️. Safe for solo travelers.

      10/10 recommend I wish I can do more of it
      10/10 experience. Easy, comfortable, beautiful. Will do it again in a heart beat. I wish I had more time and money to do it a couple more times. I was lucky to have a clear beautiful morning - make sure you time your best weather day during the stay for this. The view up there is even better than on Christ the redeemer and sugar loaf

      Whole family LOVED this!!
      We saw hang gliders landing on the beach and thought - WHAT?!?! A little nervous to jump off a cliff with strangers in a foreign country…. But we actually felt very safe with this group. Good pilots, equipment in good shape, and videos delivered as promised. They asked me to paraglide instead of hang glide since I’m close to 90 kg. But I think I got the better ride! It was an awesome experience!

      Awesome Rio and Iguazu falls
      One of the best places we visited. People are friendly, food is great and landscape is unforgettable. After a really good start in Rio we head to the beaches in Copacabana and Ipanema. After staying for 5 days in Rio, we flew to Iguazú falls - both BRASIL and Argentina.

      FANTASTIC! BOOK THEM NOW!
      FANTASTIC! BOOK THEM NOW! We were here on Christmas Eve. Our guides, Hilton and Beto, were phenomenal! We had an early start 8am in the morning and were the first ones flying off the hang glide platform. The guides are extremely experienced and the entire process was seamless. They take care of everything and you just need to have fun! We were able to leave our personal belongings in the trunk of their car. Wear comfortable clothing, wait for the wind, and you will have one of the best experiences in your life! Shout out to Mariana for being very responsive coordinating everything.

      Super Experience in the air
      Amazing experience! On the day of the flight I contacted Mariana to make sure weather condition were optimal. I received a warm information over the phone. Upon arrival to the meeting point I had a similar warm welcome both from Mariana and Renato, my pilot. After filling out the paperwork we jumped into the vehicle that would take us to “Piedra Bonita”, the launch site. Upon arrival, I was instructed on the safety nuances of the flight, all done in the most friendly manner by Renato. Then after suiting we approached the ramp and with a short run we were in the air. The experience of a lifetime. Don’t fear, you will love every minute of it.

      Breathtaking experience!!!
      The views were beautiful, definitely a unique experience to see the city! My instructor Renato was so patient and full of energy. I went solo for my birthday and I was really nervous, I thought about not doing it but I’m so glad that I did! This was a perfect way to celebrate my birthday and I would definitely try it again whenever I return to RIO! Thankyou Again for helping me celebrate my birthday.

      Absolutely worth it!
      This experience was 100% worth it! Scariest part was the 15 minutes leading up to running off the mountain, everything else was amazing. If you are on the fence, there is no big drops that you feel in your stomach or super fast speeds, just calmly gliding over one of the most beautiful places on earth. Take the leap, you won’t regret it! Factor in an extra hour or two depending on when you go, they have to adjust to the weather and that may cause some back ups but they can’t control that. Enjoy and açaí bowl while you wait!

    The actual gliding was amazing but our scheduled experience was delayed 3 whole days because of the wind. Luckily we had the extra 3 days in Rio to spare and wait. Most importantly I'll mention - I booked this experience with my fiance so i expected that we will handglide one right after the other so that we can wait together, leave together, and enjoy the experience together but instead they split us up. My partner went first and I had to wait for a string of other strangers to do their jumps before my instructor finally came to get me to do my jump. This is a poor experience when I'm there to have a romantic holiday. I did ask to go straight after my partner but my request was brushed off as insignificant. The instructors did not speak any good english and I personally didn't feel like they put in any effort to relate to explain to us in detail what will happen during the flight from start to finish. Lastly, which most definitely not the operator's fault - be aware that if the wind is not blowing in the right direction or at the right strength you will be waiting around up on the mountain until it eventually picks up or changes direction. We waited 2 hours all suited up in gear.

    I was in Rio with my wife, we love to come to come to Rio. My wife knew about Mariana, who does hanglider and paraglider flights. We booked with them online through trip advisor. We loved it, very nice people, the flight is amazing. The view of Pedra da Gavea and landing in Sao Conrado beach is incredible. One of the most exciting things I have done in my life! I recomend.
