Luiz and Daniela were absolutely amazing. They were so friendly and so knowledgeable. They both are pilots and very experienced fliers they make you feel very at ease and get you super pumped for the flight. I absolutely loved my flight and would do it 1,000 times over again! I highly suggest them! They also use the latest gopro and have and awesome 360 camera so you get so many pics and videos from this amazing experience. I cannot say enough good things!

Really great experience! Was a beautiful flight. They are very flexible with dates and times. We rescheduled a couple times for both weather and convenience. Was stress free and good, quick communication. I didn’t meet Luiz, I met his partner. She was very nice and had a lovely dog you will hopefully also get to meet! My pilot was Blade, who was very nice and professional. I felt very safe with him. There are three cameras on the hang glide. You get one view for free and each additional view you want is 100 BRL (or maybe 110 I forget). I bought them all, the transferring of photos to your phone is very efficient. I had only a couple areas I saw room for improvement. During the entire flight, Blade kept turning me around to all three cameras posing. The poses were consistently “Superman, Like a Boss, Arms out, Ect”. It felt too forced, I’m not a big fan of posing like that, maybe a couple times is ok. We did it the entire time from takeoff to landing, likely because they want to sell you the photos at the end. I would have preferred to just take in the scenery and let the photos and video be natural. Was way to busy doing his poses for the entire flight, which made it also feel less like an Airbnb experience. I think for it to be a true Airbnb experience, there needs to be a little more effort to add a special touch and feel less like something I could have booked on the street corner. I think it’s important to give the customer time to just enjoy the flight instead of talking and posing for photos the whole time also, because doing that made it less of an experience. I give it 4 stars because it was still really great, hosted by professional and kind people who in the end did give me a nice flight.

Because this activity depends on wind that humans can not control, my activity was delayed by an hour. Luiz communicated to me about this from the beginning so I did not feel any problems. When it was time to go, I was very nervous because this was my first time doing paragliding and I am scared of heights. Luiz and his partner (I forget her name, sorry!) were so kind and reassuring. He helped me feel safe in the paraglide and is very experienced. After, his partner shared with me the photos and video. I recommend you do this tour because they are professional and well experienced people, and will give you an unforgettable experience.
