As a seasoned traveler and certified adrenaline junkie I wanted to learn paragliding. Signed up for one week, ended up staying for another week in order to complete my EP certification. However, I didn't complete it as I was unable to find time to do one particular exercise. I'm pretty sure that most training centers would only be too happy to sign off at my certification, but this actually reflects their dedication to safety. I always felt well looked after, and they seem to be in a different league when it comes to having a structured training program. Add to this a group of helpful, service-minded and entertaining instructors and you've got yourself a great holiday. Needless to say I'll be back next year. Food in Verbier sucks big time, though.

Thank you Mike for an absolutely fantastic in-tandem flight last Thursday, I will never forget it, nor will anyone else as I must have been heard whooping over the whole of the valley!

Mike, Stu and Andreas of Verbier Summits are THE BEST! Our experience was superb and they are true professionals in their field. They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed about everything and we would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to have a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience flying high above the Swiss Alps! By far one of the best "adventurous" experiences we have ever had. Thank you Verbier Summits!

The total Verbier Summits experience made for another unforgettable fortnight. Stu and Mike have created a paragliding formula that is much more than just great flying and great tuition. The accommodation is brilliant, the food is excellent, the organisation and logistics are flawless and they are the most friendly, welcoming and generous hosts anyone could wish for. I am seventy-four years old and definitely a slow learner but Stu, Mike and their team have somehow taught me to fly. For that I will be eternally grateful. Many, many thanks.

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of learning with Mike and Stu along with their team! It was such a great experience which I would really recommend to anyone who is thinking of starting to fly. All of the instructors are very friendly, and you can really tell that they love what they do! This is super important as it creates a comfortable atmosphere for the students. In our class all students were at different levels. For example, we had a couple of students who had experience flying with different canopies before, such as canopies used for base jumping and skydiving, but we also had students who have never been in the air on their own. The instructors managed to accommodate everyone perfectly and make everyone feel comfortable with their progression. I have done some flying since leaving the school, however, I will be returning soon for some further education!
