This was the highlight of our trip to Medellín! The flight was far more beautiful than it was scary. The pilot and I laughed and chatted the entire flight as he pointed out destinations in the area. I felt completely safe, comfortable and relaxed. Andes was my pilot and he was incredible! Ask for him if you can! Highly recommend!

Amazing! So much fun. Great value. Our guide, Julian, who is also the founder of the company was amazing. Professional, knowledgeable and took great care of us. I would recommend everyone to go with Ecoventure. A truly great experience!

Do it! You won't regret it. No further comments needed. Just be prepared to scale a ton of steps and a somewhat high incline. You'll be tired but a great reward awaits you.

Such an adventure! Paragliding was SO much fun. Tomas is a great and fun guide. We had a great lunch in a beautiful little farm.

Thomas was a great guide, would definitively book with him again
