By far one of the best experiences of my life. Ricardo and Albino are true professionals. All the gear is properly checked and secure so you so no need to be anxious. You are definitely in safe hands.

Hang-gliding with Ricardo over Rio was a great experience. He was really responsive and helpful in setting up our reservation, and followed through with a great flight. He was knowledgeable about all things Rio and hang-gliding. I would definitely recommend Rio by Jeep to anyone.
