We had relatively short waiting times and the transport went smoothly. Our driver was very nice (if speaking Spanish). The only disadvantage was that one of our group was only assigned to a Spanish speaking guide despite booking an English speaking guide. This was particularly tricky in view of the safety issue in paragliding.

A very efficient and enjoyable experience. Punctual pickup in a nice car with a good driver. Fast sign-in process. Professional instructor who got me into the air quickly and without any fuss. And my driver waiting for me to return. No frills, no fuss and exactly as written on the add. Would recommend.

It is the best experience that I could live flying through these mountains was the maximum, if I had known that it was so good payment for more time .... It is something that should be done, the security is super good and all the staff too friendly .. .. My companion Jorge super good and experienced and professional
