      Amazing !!!
      The experience was so amazing. I can definitely do it again, not scary at all. It must do when you are in Cape Town. Staff members are so professional and give thoroughly information from booking until landing.

      Amazing experience
      This was one of the best experiences of my life. The team was so cool kept me updated before the date on the location and time and they kept following up. On arrival the team there gave us a warm welcome and set us up well. My pilot John was the best he flew so well and took me on an amazing flight. Definitely doing this again once I am back in Cape Town.

      Amazing Paragliding in Cape Town
      I can't begin to describe how cool the experience was. The whole thing was only increased by the professionalism of the company and the experience of the guides. I would highly recommend it to anyone going to Cape Town. Although allow flexibility with your dates and times to work with the weather.

      Met All Expectations!
      In researching companies for paragliding in Cape Town, I decided to book with Fly Cape Town Paragliding. There was no payment due at booking (received a text message confirmation for the date, time, and link to the address). Communication was quick, clear, and concise. If there are people in your group that are not participating, they can accompany you to Signal Hill, and transportation can be provided to meet at the drop-off point (they will miss your take-off, but could potentially see the landing). The day of the flight, received a text message reminding to meet 15 minutes before the takeoff time. Upon arrival, there were several other companies that left from the same location on Signal Hill (companies took turns for take-off). There was very little wind during the morning of our flight . As a result, we were advised they were waiting for the wind to pick up, and there would be a 30 minute delay. At exactly 10:30am, we were called to begin our experience. The tandem pilot, Zenti Bishop, set very clear expectations, had great energy, and assured me that I would have a fantastic experience. During the flight (that had perfect weather), he pointed out different landmarks, provided opportunities to take some really cool photos/videos and performed some cool “acrobatics” towards the end. After landing, photos and video from the GoPro were uploaded to my phone. We settled the bill with the ground agent, and I purchased a t-shirt. The entire experience (check-in, flight, and check-out) took less than 15 minutes. FYI: During flight, take full advantage of the GoPro option by capturing as much as you can. If looking for a company for paragliding, check out Fly Cape Town Paragliding!

      Ended with a High Note!!
      Fly Cape Town Paragliding is legit the Best!! I only had 2 and a half days in cape town after a Week Long safari. I originally booked a Friday afternoon slot but the wind currents were too strong. Christa was so courteous reaching out to me via what’s app daily. Luckily the wind was great on Monday, September 9th and they fit me in that early morning. Best time ever and best way to end my Africa Trip. I had to jet to the airport thereafter but As my amazing Pilot Misha/Miska? Put it... we ended it on a High Note! Loved the Roller Coaster above the water to LOL ... seriously book this company, they know what’s up!! Thank you fly Cape Town! #FlyLikeAnEagle #UpintheAir

      Not to be missed
      The crew was awesome including Christa (lots of communication via whatsapp), Zenti (my pilot) and Stephan (super kindly fixed a billing issue which was not even their fault so he didn't have to!) I enjoyed the flight even though it was too short (1 min!) Indeed an awesome experience, will be back.

      Amazing experience....tech difficulties
      This was an amazing experience! My wife and I had a blast. The pilots were great and the scenery was simply unforgettable. Communication mostly by whatsapp was easy and was very clear. The only blip was that the video of my flight did not have any audio with it. My wife's video was fine. I know that these things can happen but since this was a once in a lifetime experience for us it would have been nice if the video would have worked as anticipated.

      Fantastic experience, what a way to see the city!
      We booked for my Girlfriend's 30th Birthday. We couldn't fly the exact day we wanted due to weather conditions, but the crew was excellent at communicating and setting a new date that worked out really well. It was an absolutely unforgettable experience. The pilots are extremely skilled and knowledgeable and made us feel 100% safe the entire trip. Fly Cape Town offer more than a just a breath-taking way to see the most amazing view of Cape Town, they also provide a once-in-a-lifetime learning experience and a window into the incredible world of flying.

      Stunning experience
      If you want to paraglide you cannot go wrong with this company. From the start they were quick to answer my emails, booking was seamless. Lots of communication via WhatsApp. Because this activity is weather dependent they were happy to reschedule and really try and make it convenient for you. I am really scared of heights and they really are great with keeping you calm. I was lucky to fly with Zenti, a very experienced pilot. He made me feel incredibly relaxed and made this an amazing experience. The quality of the photos and video is also of a very high standard. Definitely worth every cent. Will definitely be back.

      Excellent activity & Great guides
      Booked this for myself and a friend, we both absolutely loved it. The company made it really easy to book & contacted us in the morning to advise of meeting point. When we arrived, we met the guides who were taking us up in the air, they were really polite, friendly, knowledge and made the whole thing really enjoyable. They made us feel calm, relaxed & they took great pictures. Would highly recommend!!

      Bucket List Must Have!
      I watched these guys float down the mountain more than 10 years ago and finally got the chance to do it myself! So glad I checked the reviews for the right company to go with because oh my goodness gracious me, these guys were the best and you could see it from a mile away. The Fly Cape Town Crew just set the best mood, while the clouds were prolonging our time up there we got a chance to ask for places to go and things to see and these guys just knew what we were looking for. Because it was a bit of a cloudy day you could see the other companies were backing up their queues of customers while Fly Cape Town had contacted their customers an hour before to confirm weather etc so we had no rush. Jumping into the sky, everyone else (on a deadline to finish up their queue) bee-lined for the landing while Zenti and Stephan turned left and made the most of our time in the air. Zenti patiently answered all my questions and explained so nicely what was going on. Felt like we were in the air for ages compared to the other companies. Such an amazing experience I'm sad I have to wait till I go back to Cape Town to go again! For me this was something between skydiving and yoga, you get that whole rush of jumping off the mountain and doing 360s but its so peaceful up there its just great. I definitely recommend paragliding in cape town and if you are going to do it then you have no choice but to choose these guys or else you're literally missing out.

    Quite professional to book and deal with, was a great experience however the downside is that it is quite expensive for how long the flight actually lasts. Lasted no more than 5 minutes of flight time until landing in Sea Point. You can opt to get dropped back off at Signal Hill or stay at Sea Point which was a lot easier to pick up an Uber.
    On reflection good experience, professional, but brief and expensive.

    This company did an amazing job looking after myself and friends. We communicated with them through Whatsapp over 4-5 days to tee up the best time to fly. They were professional, well organised and had a very experienced team which put you at ease. I would definitely recommend!

    Incredible! A must try and in great hands!! Thrilling and fun! Best instructors.

    Best experience ever! My partner and I flew with Frank and Alois. They were so funny and fun, I felt so safe and I could relax in the air and at the same time scream out of joy and enjoy the thrill while in good hands. They were super professional and patient. We had an absolute blast! Thanks guys! Highly recommend you all give this a try with them. Loved every minute.

    Amazing experience!

    We booked via Whatsapp message and got a spot for the next morning from Signal Hill (easy to get to via Uber). Well organized, great pilots, and a beautiful flight. Amazing to see Cape Town from the sky and felt so safe yet exhilarating.

    Also loved the photos and videos. For 300 rand, the pilot will take a go pro camera and take some fun pics.

    Take closed toe shoes for the 30 seconds of running off the cliff at the beginning.

    Fly Cape Town Paragliding has my highest recommendation 🪂🪂🪂. The view over Signal Hill is fantastic, and the surge of excitement is amazing. I'd want to thank the pilot, Stephan Kruger, for being an excellent pilot and motivating me to think about getting a paragliding license 💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿.

    Wonderful experience with Fly Cape Town Tandem Paragliding. Everyone I interacted with from booking to running me off the mountain, to flying, was professional and put me at ease. I have experienced the beauty of Cape Town from on land and at sea but soaring above my beloved birth place of Sea Point took it (and me) to new heights.
    A special mention of Fannie who helped me to fly.

    They were super accommodating as we changed our timeslot 1 hr in advance because we couldn’t get a transportation up there. They also changed to Lions Head which was great. So overall really good organization and communication. I flew with Stefan who was very chilled, explained everything well, just everything you need when you are a bit nervous 💯✨.

    My first flight but definitely not the last. Very organized team, truly impressive. From the booking to the flight. Fanie (pilot) thank you for a great flight. Your love for your craft shines through your heart. You patiently waited for the right wind speed to give me an experience I will always treasure. Perfect lift off, perfect landing. I was nervous but I kept repeating the instructions in my head
    I appreciate that even your crew that was prepping me is interactive and talked me through the process as well.
    I am still smiling....see you very soon

    I had such a great glide! Parking & bathrooms at the top of Signal Hill. My glide got moved around a few time because the weather at the mountain can change in an instant but they were very communicative via WhatsApp on the status of my glide. My paraglide was with Brett-he is AWESOME! Inspiring and fun to talk to. Great experience, had some butterflies about the initial jump but they talk you through everything! DO IT!!

    It was absolutely amazing. I have a physical disability, and they took care to make me feel comfortable. They organized a team that could run in my stead for take-off. We did have to wait a while for the wind to change, but their friedly staff kept us updated all the way and made sure we were comfortable. On the ground, they also had a team ready to assist me, and the pilot was also very cosiderate. They take amazing photo's and make sure that you are not nervous and feel safe the entire flight. I would definitely recommend them. 110/100.
