AMAZING!! This was an absolutely unforgettably awesome experience, good price and you literally get to sit and enjoy the view! Sean was fabulous, he went above and beyond our expectations, particularly, he did his best to think of options (alternate dates, locations etc) in case the weather wouldn't be in our favour (we went in Feb). Luckily for us the... More

One word is all that needs to be used to describe this experience = WOW! When I found out that you could do paragliding in Chamonix I was all over it! Mind you if you are going to do it, do it right from Mont Blanc, the cost isn't the cheapest but the experience is amazing! You are in the... More

Really enjoyed my flight and lived to tell the tale; and a great tale to tell too! I felt very confident and comfortable. Everything was very smooth and relaxed which, for a reasonably nerve-racking activity, made it all the more enjoyable! Would definitely recommend.

Had a great flight with Sean on a beautiful sunny day in October! He arranged instructors for me and 5 friends and we all had a brilliant time. Felt in very safe hands and all was done with professionalism and kindness. Highly recommended.

I am so glad I chose Fly Chamonix for my paragliding experience. I was leaving Chamonix and decided to try my luck and see if there were any paragliding openings within the next few hours. Sean said he could squeeze me in if I could leave my hotel within the next five minutes and that he'd even come and pick... More

My wife and I visited the Chamonix area at the end of September/ begining of October 2014. During this visit we had both been watching the paragliders flying around the peaks, for myself this bought back memories of when I used to fly in the late 80s and for my wife memories of a taster day in the UK from...

My first time paragliding, an awesome experience. Sean was patient and professional. On top of that, he talked me out of a more expensive flight since it was my first time and the other was a bit much for a first timer. Highly recommended, honest and professional guys here. Will def come back.

I arrived in Chamonix late in the afternoon and, on a whim, decided to see if I could find anyone to take me flying. I called up and managed to get taken up just 30 minutes after calling. Sean was very professional and friendly, talking me through everything to do with paragliding while also explaining about Chamonix, Mont Blanc and... More

This was my first time paragliding and it was a truly amazing experience. It was a smooth flight and Sean made it seem so easy to do - I loved every minute and didn't even once feel anxious. Thank- you to Sean for providing a really friendly and professional service. I agree completely with the other recent reviews and would... More

Fantastic, professional and friendly. Never been paragliding before and was bit nervous but there was no need to be! Everything was well explained throughout the flight and the take-off and landing was no problem; even had a go at the controls.
