The pick up was simple and easy. The guides were really nice but I didn’t really understand what I was getting myself into at the site. Directions aren’t the clearest and you just get in and go which isn’t terrible either. I got dizzy and had to go down so heads up to prepare for potential motion sickness. Thankfully my instructor was friendly and got me down when I needed to. Overall a good experience but probably wouldn’t do it again.

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

Daero my pilot was amazing!!! This was the highlight of my trip to Medellin. I booked this activity for three of my friends and we all loved them. Please be aware there are many steps Yku need to Climb to get to the launching area. Steps need to be fixed and railing installed. That was more challenging then the actual Paragliding. I still give it a 5 star ⭐️‘s
