I highly recommend this just be ready to climb up multiple stairs on the mountain. Also, bring a sweater it gets a little cooler while you’re in the sky. It was my first time and I loved it. All of the staff super friendly with lots of positive energy. I will be coming back!

This was way, way, WAY better than I expected. A must do if you're ever in Medellin. Mateo was super responsive and the rest of the team was great - everyone from the driver, hostess and the paraglider. I felt super safe as I soared above San Felix. You are basically in a comfortable seated position while the paraglider circles the area. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life.

An amazing flight. I had to wait longer than expected at the top of the hill for another pilot to arrive as there wasnt enough for the group but it was worth it in the end. An incredible view and experience.

What a wonderful experience! It was a bit cloudy on the day I went but it was still such a stunning view. Even my cousin that's afraid of heights, really enjoyed it! Do not miss out on this when you're in Medellin!

I am going to rate two separate things: the experience and the customer service part. The experience itself was great. It’s is really fantastic. The instructors know what they are doing and make you feel safe. The views are breathtaking and you basically get to fly with the birds that fly right next to you which is amazing. I highly recommend trying it however it’s worth keeping in mind that sensitive people might get dizzy. Now the customer service part: even though we arrived there first two other groups of people that arrived after us (a while after) got to fly first. We had to wait at least 45 mins if not longer. I need to add that the weather conditions were not the best so I totally understand having to wait for the rain to stop or for the wind to get stronger. However, after waiting for the rain to stop two other groups of people were told to fly first and I still don’t understand why. By the time they got in the air it started raining again and we had to keep on waiting. Our instructors were there and seemed ready - they were just sitting and waiting. The lady at the “front desk” said the delay was caused because everyone is flying with different companies. Ok but what does it have to do with anything? We were the first ones to arrive so we should be the first one to fly once the weather conditions got better… sorry but that was ridiculous. Second thing is that we paid extra for an SD card and the lady in the office promised 100 photos and a couple of videos, meanwhile all the SD card has is 3 videos and no pictures at all. That’s not what we were promised and what we paid for… if I knew there won’t be any photos I would probably use my phone instead. Overall the experience is fantastic and really worth doing. The driver that picked us up and dropped us off was great and very friendly as well. But the office that organizes and takes care of the tours needs improvement.

This experience was for a group of four. None of us had tried this before. It was the perfect first location to try paragliding. The views were spectacular. The experience felt very safe. And we all had a wonderful time.
