Absolute highlight of my trip so far (2 months, 3 countries and multiple tours / activities). The tour company was fantastic, especially considering there were multiple people involved. The coordination was spot on, and there were no hidden surprises. Hiring the GoPro was very affordable and the trained paraglider was outstanding!! He put me completely at ease, despite having a nearly crippling fear of heights. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Absolutely amazing experience! Everything was so well organized and professional from the beginning to the end. I was very nervous but the instructor, Rodrigo, was so kind and make me feel safe. It is a must to do in Medellin!

The driver was on time to pick me up to take us to the paragliding site. John (the gentleman who were flying with me) made me feel comfortable. This experience is a must if you are visiting Medellín

I really enjoyed it and loved the confidence of the Tour Guides in the air. Our driver was also really good and took us on a driven tour of the city afterwards.

This was a very enjoyable and exhilarating experience. Going in the morning ensured better weather and clearer skies.
