Although I have jumped out of an airplane, I didn't anticipate the walk off the ledge. Daniel was very helpful in setting me up with what I needed to do and made the flight enjoyable! We caught an updraft of air and had a little more time to fly which was awesome! I highly recommend Rio Tandem to anyone interested in this experience.

Daniel - the man! I highly recommend the experience with him. We were 4 friends and none of us had any recommendation of improvement. He has done everything possible to make the flight outstanding for all of us. +Great and fast communication prior to flight +Friendly stuff +lift to pickup cash and food for lunch +detailed explanation of paragliding +high quality go pro pictures directly on phone Highly recommended

Daniel and Carlos took my wife and I on a memorable flight. Casual and fun these guys were real professionals and we felt safe knowing they fly all the time. Great flight, great photos, 360degree photos, and even some acrobatics if you want. Would recommend for sure.

I knew from when I began planning my trip to Rio that I wanted to go paragliding. My experience exceeded my wildest expectations. Daniel was a great guide, friendly and helpful with both knowledge about the area as well as basics regarding the activity. Daniel did a great job of making me feel safe and comfortable prior to paragliding. Additionally, he was quick to respond prior to my booking with questions I had regarding the experience. The entire team was very professional and efficient, making my disc quickly after our return. The paragliding itself was breathtaking, a truly unforgettable experience. I recommend to paragliding with Rio Tandem next time you're in Rio!!
