Start your tour with pickup at your accommodation and make your way to the train station in Basel.

It was an amazing experience. Toni was great. The views were spectacular. The only thing is we were not aware that we had to pay for the gondola ride to the top and we had to pay for the photos/videos that Toni took on his GoPro. Other than that, I highly recommend the experience!

A fantastic experience, enjoyed it! Also received very nice photos and videos. The boarding point was at a different location than indicated for the activity. The new boarding point was quickly communicated to us by the instructor. The price for the lift is not included.

The experience was stunning, I really recommend do paragliding with Antonio, knowledgeable instructor and lovely human.
