The experience was truly amazing! Besides the delay (i.e., we were supposed to start at 11:00 but ended up starting at 13:30) everything else went well. The views from the top are spectacular!

Vale la pena hacerlo, conocer la ciudad desde el cielo y disfrutar de sus paisajes. Toman todas las medidas de seguridad para que realices la actividad tranquilo.

Very unique experience and definetly worth it. Claus is a very good and kind instructor, never had any doubts concerning safety

They are talkative and energetic, super nice and understandable if you also can understand that they can’t control the wind

It was the best experience ever, the pilot was funny and made sure that we felt secure and safe. Great choice!
