    Incredible
    I had the best experience ever with Mariana! She is such a professional and kind human being. I made a mistake while booking my handgliding and even tho it was too late for me to get a refund with the policy of the website she was really comprehensive and did everything to fix it!! I recommend 100% to deal with her for your handgliding experience! She’s the best!! Thanks again Mariana

    We loved it!
    My favorite part of the experience was a few minutes after taking off. :) Finding and making a reservation was very easy and accommodating. Mariana Janssens was very helpful, and her husband Renato Janssens (one of our instructors) made us feel very comfortable. I am not big on heights, but they did a good job on making me comfortable and confident in them. Tip: If I could do it, anyone can, don't think too much about it, just go with the flow, you are in safe hands. The instructors are awesome, they do their best to make sure your experience is memorable so just trust whatever they say and ask you to do. Remember you are going to videoed right through, so be ready for all the fun poses and things you might want to say and do. :)

    Adventure of a lifetime!
    Hang gliding in Rio is something I always wanted to do! Estilo Voo Livre made it easy and SO much fun! The company picked me up from my hotel on Copacabana beach, brought me to the glider landing site, got me checked in, drove me up the mountain to launch site. Renato, my glider pilot, gave me some instructions, and off we flew! AMAZING experience! Renato and his team speak perfect English, they’re fun, very professional, and have me wanting to come back and do it again! Next time I’ll try paragliding! The views are spectacular of some of the most iconic scenes in Rio de Janeiro! I’d give this company a million-star rating if I could!

    Amazing view and flight
    I was in Rio with my wife, we love to come to come to Rio. My wife knew about Mariana, who does hanglider and paraglider flights. We booked with them online through trip advisor. We loved it, very nice people, the flight is amazing. The view of Pedra da Gavea and landing in Sao Conrado beach is incredible. One of the most exciting things I have done in my life! I recomend.

    Very enjoyable but pray the weather is in your favour
    The actual gliding was amazing but our scheduled experience was delayed 3 whole days because of the wind. Luckily we had the extra 3 days in Rio to spare and wait. Most importantly I'll mention - I booked this experience with my fiance so i expected that we will handglide one right after the other so that we can wait together, leave together, and enjoy the experience together but instead they split us up. My partner went first and I had to wait for a string of other strangers to do their jumps before my instructor finally came to get me to do my jump. This is a poor experience when I'm there to have a romantic holiday. I did ask to go straight after my partner but my request was brushed off as insignificant. The instructors did not speak any good english and I personally didn't feel like they put in any effort to relate to explain to us in detail what will happen during the flight from start to finish. Lastly, which most definitely not the operator's fault - be aware that if the wind is not blowing in the right direction or at the right strength you will be waiting around up on the mountain until it eventually picks up or changes direction. We waited 2 hours all suited up in gear.

    Best Hand Gliding Tour in Rio
    From start to finish, Mariana and Renato were excellent to deal with. Very professional and customer oriented individuals. They know 100% what they are doing and they transmit the confidence needed for you to take off. Next time I’m in Rio, I will visit them for sure! Feliz Ano Novo!

    Flight of a lifetime
    Renato and Mariana were warm and welcoming. They made sure we were happy and feeling safe from the moment they greeted us until they sent us off in a taxi at the end. The flight was spectacular. My wife and I each had a pilot/guide (Renato and Beto). They pointed out landmarks, gave us great photo opps, and we had a blast soaring the skies, gliding over Tijuca National Park with the ocean in front of us and all of Rio laid out beneath us. We were able to see Sugarloaf, Christ the Redeemer, and Guanabara Bay. Marianna was friendly, efficient, and answered all of my questions promptly. She made it extremely easy to book our adventure and we had a fun time selecting our video and photos with her afterwards. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique and exhilarating experience!

    Wooooow !!!
    Wowwww, ala delta flying! What an unforgettable experience!!! Yo run (literally) from the roof of Pedra Bonita into the air and off you go! The views to get from above are breathtaking! You go to the beach first, there you get your paperwork done and then you go up Pedra Bonita. You must be patient and wait for your turn. We came on a long weekend and we had to wait 3 hours!!! But, totally worth it. The flight goes for 10 minutes approximately. You must experience once in your life the ala delta! Wowwww, volar en ala delta! Que experiencia inolvidable!!! Corres (literal) desde el techo de Pedra Bonita al aire y así volas! Las vistas desde el vuelo te dejan sin palabras! Primero vas a la playa donde haces todo el papeleo y después subís a Pedra Bonita. Tenes que ser paciente y esperar tu turno. Vinimos un fin de semana largo y esperamos 3 horas!!! Pero, valió la pena todo. El vuelo es de 10 minutos aproximadamente. Tenes que vivir la experiencia de volar en ala delta una vez en tu vida!

    Amazing Hang gliding experience
    A perfect day spent in Rio hang gliding with Renato and his team. So professional and helpful from start to finish. Can't say enough good things about the experience. Do not leave Rio without doing this with crazy activity with Renato!

    Awesome experience
    Had a great time hang gliding with Renato. No experience necessary, as he gives you a great tutorial prior to flying. Felt safe the whole time. You jump from the top of the Tijuca Forest and land on the beach. Probably no other city in the world can match this experience.

Me & my wife were in Rio and wanted to go hang gliding. We have a friend in Rio who recommended Estilo Voo Livre. My wife called via WhattApp and spoke to Mariana who speaks excellent English and is very sweet and very easy to deal with. The day that we had scheduled it rained all day. She contacted us that morning and we rescheduled after looking at that weeks forecast. We took her advice and scheduled for the morning we were flying out of Rio back to the US. We arrived at 9:30am and was greeted by Mariana. The process was easy and well organized. My wife hang glided with Mariana's husband Renato and I hang glided with Bebe. Bothe were extremely professional and probably the 2 nicest people we met in Rio while on vacation. The experience was the BEST and the highlight of our trip. The value for the money was well worth it!. In my opinion it's a must do while on vacation in Rio de Janiero. We will be back next year with our 15 year old daughter and we will be booking with Estilo Voo Livre once again so she can experience hang gliding. I highly recommend using Estilo Voo Livre if looking to hang glide. Thank you Mariana for all your patience and help.

You will see a couple of different ads, but they all seem to run out of the same collective. If you show up to the correct beach there will be an area to check in, then you’ll get a pilot assigned to you. They all run at pretty standard fares. And you will pay about 100 Ryobi for the two extra camera angles if you are interested. It’s a great fun time, but it’s an gliding. I wouldn’t go if you were over about 200 pounds. That seemed to be the limit. Overall it was very exciting. I’m not sure I would do it again.

Renato and Mariana are an excellent team. They take care of you from beginning to end. The hang gliding fight was amazing. Renato made me feel very calm the whole time. I definitely recommend them to anyone coming to Rio.

The experience was beyond awesome. The communication before the flight was clear and friendly, the instructor Renato was very professional, I felt safe the entire time and the landing was very smooth and light. No need to say that the views from up there are breathtaking and this is a must have experience in Rio. Thank you very much, it made my day!

Due to weather I was unable to do the hang gliding.

I am writing this review for anyone that is worried about what the cancellation policy is. Due to the nature of the trip and the importance of the weather to do the activity, you have to check with the company about two hours before your start time. They will then tell you if the weather is safe to 'fly'. Our booked time was at 8am and the weather was not good. We were told that we can check back in a couple of hours to see if the weather gets better. The weather did actually get better and we had the option hang glide on the same day, but a few hours later, and unfortunately that did not work with our schedule so we had to decline the new hang gliding time.

This did not affect our refund in any way. The company completely understands that the weather in unpredictable, and if due to the weather you are not able to do the activity, you will get a full refund. I got an email confirmation within minutes of telling Mariana (the sales associate) that we need to cancel.

Don't be afraid, book with them if this is something you want to do.

What an amazing experience. It is something I will remember forever. The first jump is the hardest, and then it is heaven. The views are spectacular! I would do this every single day if I could. I can’t recommend them enough. I think it is best to go earlier in the day, especially during the summer, because the weather is usually better. Storms typically form in the afternoons.

What can I say? It was flabbergasting, no words can express the joy of flying over São Conrado and so close to the Pedra da Gávea. Renato is a kind, fun but very responsible and experienced pilot. His wife, Mariana is extremely helpful and of good advice. Both are very professional and you can trust them without doubt to make you live an extraordinary experience.
Quant à Rio, faire un tour en aile delta est un must : le faire avec Renato est un plaisir en toute tranquillité et confiance. Nous étions 4: toute une famille. Avons passé un moment magique grâce à Renato et Mariana. Merci and thank you a thousand times!
PS: Renato speaks english and french!

The views were beautiful, definitely a unique experience to see the city! My instructor Renato was so patient and full of energy. I went solo for my birthday and I was really nervous, I thought about not doing it but I’m so glad that I did! This was a perfect way to celebrate my birthday and I would definitely try it again whenever I return to RIO! Thankyou Again for helping me celebrate my birthday.

Hang gliding with Renato Janssens at Estilo Voo Livre was easily the most memorable thing I did during my trip to Rio. I'm so glad I did it. Renato was a great instructor as we prepared to take off... He makes the whole experience easy and enjoyable. The flight itself was breathtaking. Flying over Tijuca National Forest and then the neighborhoods and the beach was absolutely incredible. Then you have the option of buying the pictures and video of your flight when you land. So worth it... the pics are awesome!

Bottom line: I would fly again with Renato/Estilo Voo Livre in a heartbeat!
