Gabor, did his best to scare me (as directed by a mutual friend). He didn't, he just made me want to take up paragliding. It is amazing to be able to fly like an eagle, dive bomb things, fly the contours of the ground and do a few stunt turns.
I only regret I dragged you into a face plant in the deep snow landing! sorry!
I would recommend Gabor for your first paragliding experience (it was my 3rd and best) or as a fantastic instructor (at whatever level you are at!)

Had an amazing experience paragliding with Marcel! I was trying to fit a paragliding ride into a narrow patch of clear weather in March. Gabor talked through some of true options for safe flights and was able to recommend a time and place during the day to have the optimal flight. Chose the pickup option and had a lovely time driving to the base of the mountain. Timely and easy transport. I did buy a lift ticket to get up the mountain, as they stated in the product description. They supplied some additional windbreakers for weather too. I Marcel guided me through what I would need for safe takeoff, and asked for my preference for acrobatics and general queasy-ness. As someone who likes roller coasters and thrilling rides, I was definitely satisfied! Got to do some turns and near flips that were a great time. There were also times when climbing up in a therm(pocket of hot air) that were tranquil, and that could easily have lasted most of the flight if that sounds like your thing. I had booked a medium length flight, and was in the air for over 44 mins! I was even able to take the reigns and steer for a few minutes, while in the middle of the valley away from objects and under the careful guidance of course. Had an extremely easy landing, and then had the opportunity to be brought back either to Zürich, or take the rest of the day in Lucerne. Overall this was an amazing experience that I would definitely recommend, well worth the price!

Gabor from Zurich Paragliding is very very responsible person, I found this company on google search and contacted them. Response was very quick and yes kind of service he provides is just speechless. He connected me with Miki who drove me to mountain to do solo fligt, Miki was so friendly and helpful i really can not describe here but you should meet this guys if you are looking for some adventure in Zurich. I saw group of student getting trained by Gabor and if anyone plan to have adventure tour, learn paragliding or need help for those solo traveler with glider i would strongly recommend Zurich Paragliding.

Once again thanks to Gabor and Miki for making my day best one yes will surely visit you again in summer.

Thank you Peter and Gabor for this extraordinary experience!
It is a pleasure to recommend these guys. They made all the effort to find best place for us and from the first email contact to the day of our adventure it was the best quality professional service.
As that was our first experience with paragliding they were very patient with answering all our questions in details so we felt really save and taken care of. Everything was well explained and at the same time it wasn’t overwhelming in fact turned out to be easier and much more fun then we could expect. We also discovered new place to visit because on Fronalpstock and around the mountain we found breathtaking landscapes.
Gabor and Peter are very positive people, great to hangout with so the whole tour was a pure pleasure. They made photo and video documentation of the preparation and flight and we received it just after the landing. That was truly once in a lifetime experience!

Our time with Zürich Paragliding was INCREDIBLE!!! The assistance and strong communication before the ride was top notch, as we had to travel from far away to get to the launch site. The actual flight was spectacular and the professional paragliders were so fun, kind, and calming. We felt very comfortable with them and they made sure we were having the best time! They took great photos and we got them right away. Would definitely recommend!

I did the paragliding experience with Gabor and it was incredible from start to finish. The most patient person when it comes to asking him questions he will always make you feel comfortable and help in any way he can. The flight itself was so nice! Gabor also was explaining his techniques and reasons behind his movements which I found great too. Overall 100% worth doing!!

Had an awesome experience yesterday with Zurich paragliding. They were so accommodative even though I was running late and went above and beyond to make sure I wouldn’t miss my slot. The flight was great and I even got to glide it a bit on my own. Definitely recommend them.

Since we were going to be in Switzerland this gave me the opportunity to check off one of my bucket list items/Paraglyding in the Swiss Alps!!!

This is an activity that I had never done, I wanted to make sure that we chose an experienced and reliable company that emphasizes enjoying the flight with safety in mind. Our search led us to Zurich Paraglyding and Gabor. We had many questions and exchanged many emails with Gabor. His patience and knowledge of tandem Paraglyding was obvious. We booked our flight with him and he explained the process in detail to us.

On the day of our flight Andy one of his associates met us at the train station at the bottom of the mountain. He briefed me on how this would work and told me about his experience about Paraglyding. I immediately felt at ease and we took the train up the mountain. We hiked the rest of the way about 15 to 20 minutes. Not a difficult hike to our take off location. Andy set up the para glider and again briefed me on how this would work with an emphasis on safety and enjoying the flight. When the winds were right we briefly ran down the hill and we lifted off the ground. We took an amazing flight by mountains as well as a beautiful lake. Throughout the flight Andy took pictures and videos and handed me go pro to do the same.

It was a truly awesome experience to fly at 4,000 feet among the birds!!

Flying was relaxing and a beautiful experience. I can only compare it to my deep water scuba dives.

Since my wife was not as adventurous, Andy indicated to her where the landing field would be so she can wait for us and take more pictures. True to his word we landed exactly where he said we would. He then shared the pictures and videos with us which we will treasure.

If you are looking to go tantem Paraglyding in this region of Switzerland and want to use a company that is experienced, reliable, great to communicate with and emphasizes enjoyment of flight and safety, do not hesitate to reach out to Gabor thru Zurich Paraglyding.

Gabor and Andy. Thank you both for making this very memorable experience so enjoyable!!

Gabor and his colleague were very professional and provided my colleague and I an amazing experience!! The site they chose was soooo beautiful. They were very flexible with our schedule and provided excellent value for money. Everyone likes photos of their adventure. They took photos & video of us and immediately after finishing transferred these images to our iPhones. No hassle at all. I would highly recommend Zurich paragliding for anyone. You will be pleased with your choice.

Gabor made this a once in a lifetime experience!! He and Peter went out of their way to make the flight happen when weather was against us. Because our original flight destination did not work because of wind and safety issues, we thought we would not be able to fly today. I had booked this for my boyfriends birthday today and so badly wanted it to work out. Gabor and Peter offered to take us to another location....and WOW it was beautiful!!! Better than I could have imagined and their efforts were so appreciated! Thank you guys!! We will never forget this day!
