My daughter (who is 17) went paragliding with Robert and here is her review: When I first approached my parents with the crazy idea of going paragliding, their immediate response was a very hesitant one, to say the least. They thought it was much too dangerous. We stumbled across Joyride whilst renting ski equipment, and that's when we met Robert. Robert's a super nice, sincere, and all around awesome guy. He really helped settle my parents' nerves by thoroughly explaining everything about the flight process. He stressed the importance of safety which helped calm all of us down. Right before the flight I was pretty nervous, but having someone as experienced and caring as Robert by my side gave me an extra boost of confidence.The flight itself was definitely one of the most incredible experiences of my life. There's something about being up in the sky that's so liberating. The view was also absolutely stunning. Thanks Robert for an amazing experience!

I would describe myself as the total opposite of an adrenaline junkie - I have very little coordination, I'm very unfit and I'm scared of rollercoasters! However, I found myself in Davos with lots of free time so I tried it. Robert runs joyride single-handedly and does a better job than the other paragliding companies I contacted. I had no correct gear but Robert reassured me he could provide me with all the clothing required for the session. Throughout it all Robert was very calm, reassuring and patient - even when I couldn't walk fast in the snow! Robert also provides an amazing wide-shot camera that you can use to take photos of the entire trip. Words can't begin to describe the view as you're sat a couple thousand meters above sea level rocking in your cradle - you could easily fall asleep. Before you know it you're spinning around and landing safely. I think its best summed up by Robert saying all the admin, office rent etc. is what you pay for...he does the paragliding for free as it his true passion in life and you can definitely tell! I left the place with an un-wipable grin on my face - thank you for an unforgettable experience!

My colleagues and I were recently in Davos during the WEF and we had one of the most fun, exhilarating experiences ever, flying with “Joyride Paragliding”.

First of all, we instantly felt as though we were not only in good hands, but we were literally in “expert hands”, with this highly trained and experienced flight leader (and his staff).

It’s amazing how Robert Giesch and his team naturally made each one us feel comfortable with them (even before leaving the ground).

With a warm, assuring presence and clarity, Robert walked us through the entire process, with great care.

The love, passion and respect that they have for their profession definitely shines through in every way.

Immediately upon landing, not only did I have a sense of personal fulfillment, but there was also a greater sense of closeness between everyone, through such a powerful and positive, « shared experience ».

Infinite thanks to Robert and his entire Joyride Paragliding team for giving us so many wonderful, unforgettable memories, through our breathtaking flight above Davos!

Thank you so much for your friendly words. I can hardly explain how they touch me, you perfectly depicture what we are aiming for in the almost 10 years of professional tandem flying with such a accuracy. It’s breath taking! Thank you so much for sharing your feelings and those unique moments while flying with us. I hope to see you at the next years’ WEF in Davos again. All the best, Robert

I highly recommend Joyride Paragliding- they're very professional, very safe, and it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
We had a great time with Robert and Peter! We had a beautiful flight over the Swiss mountains, and the company was very flexible too - two friends and I called in the morning, and they made space for us in the afternoon.
Would recommend to anyone who's always wanted to go paragliding.

My wife and I each went paragliding. She was nervous with idea but afterwards was sooooo happy she did it. It is much more like riding in a hot air balloon than it is skydiving.
There are two companies in Davos. Joyride is the best one. At first our hotel tried to book the other one but there were a lot of complications and we looked around and asked them to contact Joyride. The owner Robert is a real great guy and very professional. It could not have been better. We would have gone a second time except we ran out of days and had to go home. Dont be afraid, its not scary at all. It is a beautiful experience that the whole family will love. Much closer to hot air ballooning than skydiving (worth saying two times because I was really expecting it would be the other way around).
You will love it!!
Thanks Robert!!

I booked with Robert although I had the other company booked earlier on, one of people from my group booked this so I changed my mind. The other company contacting me dropping the price which for me that was a bit desperate move so I decided to stuck with Robert which was right choice. I had great time up there. Loads of photos afterwards. I took control of para-glider and did some acrobatics in the air, I adore every single minute of it. I so will do it again in next country I go to. Don't hesitate, cool guy, easy going with good experience so you feel safe, instructions are clear, it was very easy to follow and we were up high in no time. Landing easier than I thought so no fears needed. Thanks Robert, I had great time with you, regards Maggie.

Dear Maggie I am so glad that you enjoyed your flight! Thank you for emphasizing that there are many more considerations beyond price point in choosing a company to fly with. For me it always has something personal to it, to be flying close together in the air and to enjoy this unique moment with our passengers, our other pilots and friends. I'm so happy when we can share this experience with our clients. Thank you so much for flying with me, Robert

Last weekend I completed my first paragliding experience with Robert. I absolutely loved it and Robert made me feel very relaxed explaining the process throughout. He persevered really hard to find the good wind so we could fly. Highly recommended to any visitor to Davos. The GoPro photos will serve as a great memory!

This was by far the best activity I chose to do in Davos. My experience was nothing but amazing. The booking process was easy and the staff was extremely kind. I never once felt my safety was at risk. My pilot hand checked every line and made sure the wind was okay to fly. We sailed over the people eating lunch and even got a horahh! I strongly suggest getting the video with it because of the great views and awesome pictures that come out of it. Our landing was smooth and my pilot was very nice. He spoke good English and was able to give me my video footage on the spot. I highly recommend this activity. However if doing so in the winter be sure to bundle up because it does get cold up there!
