"It was an amazing experience. Everyone was so nice and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend it. Although, if you can, I think it would be better to do two separate rides with two people rather then one ride for two. It is very tiny inside the glider, we were pretty squished and we are not very big people. Had to do a little bit of acrobatics to fit in. If I had to do it over again, I would have done two separate rides and given the experience a ten!"
"The glider ride was fantastic and our pilot talked to us about different options for the ride. We did a few tricks, we glided smoothly across the mountains, we soared...definitely a great recommendation."
