I went paragliding with Flying Tony in March 2023. What an experience to step off a mountain into the sky! I flew with Antonio, who skillfully rode thermals, pointed out landmarks, and at one point touched me on the shoulder to draw my attention to a red-tailed hawk gliding below us. It was magical! Take off and landing were flawless. I can't think of any way Flying Tony could have improved my experience. Next time I will heed their advice to wear warmer clothing. Also, as I have a tendancy toward motion sickness, I will take a preventive dose of Gravol or something as I had a few moments of feeling queasy. Overall, it was a fabulous experience and I hope it will become an annual event.

Extreme and security, not matching unless you fly with those guys. Afraid of hight? Not to worry :) now worry about getting addicted 😀🪂 emotions are over the boarder, even if you are northern frozen introvert (like me). I got so impressed, that booked another flight before landed 🙌
Great humor sense, professionalism and responding speed 🙌 if to fly, then here 🌞

You launch off the top of the mountain. On the day I did it we could have ridge soared all day on the easterly tradewinds. Even though my pilot was clearly enjoying the moment we had to come down to join a passenger on a separate paraglider.

Well I can't really rate this experience since we didn't get to fly in the end due to the weather conditions, but I felt like I need to write something here about this thing, since it took up half of our day spent mostly waiting. Firstly I am thankful that the guys were professional enough not to fly when they saw that there are too many clouds and as always safety comes first, but the time managing was something I could not understand. Firstly we agreed a few days sooner that we will meet at our hotell on monday at 10.00. Well at 10.07 when we were already waiting at the reception, I received a short e-mail just telling that they will pick us up at 11.00... Then at 10.45 I got an email that the car is already on the way and the guys really got to our hotel at 11.25 - so we had just spent 1,5 hours waiting. we drove up to the mountain and there we waited another hour since it was cloudy and there was a small rain coming from the sky. Then they put the gear on us (despite the fact that in my opinion the weather hadn't changed at all), we waited another 30 min and then they said - sorry guys we can not do it. Ofcourse I understand that safety always comes first and for that I am thankful, but what I dont undrestand is that when it is cloudy already in the morning and you have agreed on a sertain time - just say that we have to decide after few hours weather we can go or not and then we can decide weather we want to wait or we decide to do something else with our day. So we were both quite bothered by the fact that we just lost half of our valuable vacation dime just sitting around and waiting when we could have done something else during that time.

Thank you so much for a safe, fun flight! We had great weather and perfect flying conditions. Jose was a perfect pilot. It was definitely my favorite experience of my trip to Jarabacoa and the most memorable. I've never felt more at peace in my life than free flying at 10,000 feet over the clouds and mountains. We had a super smooth landing in a cow pasture and one of the other pilots got great footage of our landing. The guys helped secure my phone in my selfie stick so it would not fall out during our flight and I got amazing photos of the view during flight and of me flying with Jose. Tony is a nice guy and dropped us off at our next stop in our travels after our flight was over. Thanks for a great experience!

We had much fun in this place. Pilots where very professional, we flew in the air for at least 15 minutes each and we got to see Jarabacoa from very high. It was so much fun!!!

A great way to spend half a day - drive up a mountain and jump off the top! This was a first time experience for me. The 15/20 minutes flying and floating through the air was terrific. Flying with Tony appears to be the top rated company in the country for para-sailing or "Parapente" as they called it in the Dominican Republic. Whatever you call it - it is FUN! Don't miss this great opportunity for a new adventure. I'm 78 so don't let your age deter you.

My family visited Jarabacoa in August of this year and flew with Flying Tony and his crew...what a awesome experience. The view from the take off point was breathtaking and the flight down was just incredible! We had a great view of Jimenoa one and two waterfalls on the way down where we took off from. This was the highlight of our trip! We recommend Tony and his crew! What a nice guy Tony is, he even offered his crew shirt right off of his back to my daughter when she said that liked it!
