Flying is amazing of course with all organisations you can fly with, but this organisation is probably one of the best. We flied with Jan who is such a nice guy. I gave a flight to my girlfriend as a present for her birthday and her smile after it was unforgettable. If you want to paraglide in Cape Town just book with Para taxi!

It was amazing, flew for a little longer than normal because of the day, chose a good one, got there got prepped pretty quickly and into the sky you go, it's pretty spectacular, flying over Seapoint is probably the trippiest part having all those buildings below you and then over the ocean for the last little bit, nothing like it

Today we arrived early in Cape-Town from our trip true South-Africa. Before we came to SA, I've chatted with Jan and his company to arrange a nice memory of being here with a scratch of our bucketlist. Taking myself and my girl for a great flight with Paragliding.
Glad that we could arrange everything far before we came to Cape-Town and everything went well. EXCELLENT service and an AWSOME flight gave us a real valuable memory to our trip here in SA!

Special thanx to Jan for taking us in to 'your office' and showing what a great city Cape-Town is from a higher level. We both loved the way you took us on our flight, full of fun, information and making us comfortable!

Every person who doubts if it's scared or dangerous, pick Jan. Absolutely a fantastic guide with an awsome vibe..

Jan & ParaTaxi, thanx for everything!!

Hands down one of the best experiences ever. From the supportive staff and prep that goes into the jump, to the incredible views, I cannot rave about this experience enough. For all those nervous to paraglide do not overthink it, you will have the best flight and feel super safe the entire journey. Thank you Jan!

If you are in Cape Town, this is a must! Para-gliding with Jan is the best - there are many paragliding companies at the top of Signal Hill, and they are all good, but Jan's Para-Taxi company is EXCELLENT. His standards of safety seem extremely high, and as such I felt completely at ease while stepping into the harness and running off the side of the mountain! Jan's obvious experience, as well as the well-coordinated team that supports him at the top and at the bottom on landing, really make his the company to choose. I was also given occasional commentary on the way down (not too much that it distracted my peaceful flight) on local landmarks etc. And Jan asked me if I was comfortable trying some final minor acrobatics (e.g. figures of eight) over the sea. I said YES of course, and it was awesome! Jan also provides a video of pictures right after your flight so you can send them on to friends and family. And Jan's colleague was waiting patiently at the bottom to help me out of my harness and get us both - and his cool-coloured para-glider - in to a comfortable executive car and back to the top of Signal Hill where my partner waited for me. 10 out of 10 - and great, competitive rates too. I'm planning a second flight soon!
