Luis was a great instructor for hang gliding! Highly recommend!!!! At the end of the session they will ask you if you want the 360 views for 300 BRL. Totally worth it!!!


Great experience and worth the effort. The team was well organized and efficient. There is an additional cost for insurance (R100-110 per person) so account for that in cost. It was a beautiful day and I would highly recommend this experience.


This was a 5 star experience from beginning to end! I was given contact info with great video directions to the jump site and was greeted immediately upon arrival. The staff was super friendly and I could tell they loved what they did. They were knowledgeable and fun! My experience will always remain unforgettable because of the huge supply of photographs included in the package! Great job!!!!!


Our family of 4 had an absolutely amazing experience hang gliding in Rio guided by Renato and Beto. We were nervous beforehand but they were friendly, funny, engaging, skilled and made us feel at ease and comfortable throughout the activity. I coordinated with Mariana for the scheduling and she was very prompt and helpful with her communications. I would totally recommend using these guys if you want to hang glide in Rio!


Amazing experience! Very responsive staff and will keep you updated if the weather is not good to fly. No issues rescheduling if needed as well.


Our tandem guides were amazing. We loved it and would do it again! From. The hang gliding to the paragliding, we enjoyed everything!


We kicked off our 8 day trip to Rio with this hang gliding experience and couldn’t be happier! It was thrilling and amazing. We felt very safe and the instructors were informative and kind. Communication was made easy with WhatsApp which I appreciated. I have a feeling this will remain the highlight of our week and I highly recommend it!


THE cherry on top ! can't hardly believe this was for real. The experience of a lifetime. my dad had the most memorable birthday. Thank you Renato for your expertise & kindness. you were amazing. recommend 600 times!


Very nice experience. But you have to be patient sometimes. Had to wait 2.5 hours for the wind to come. Some people very more lucky with timing ⏱️. Safe for solo travelers.


10/10 experience. Easy, comfortable, beautiful. Will do it again in a heart beat. I wish I had more time and money to do it a couple more times. I was lucky to have a clear beautiful morning - make sure you time your best weather day during the stay for this. The view up there is even better than on Christ the redeemer and sugar loaf
