Friday 19-08-22 there was too little wind, our flight was moved to 22-08-22 without any problems. It was a great experience and the guidance by the entire team was great. The paragliding flight was an experience to remember, great how you could see Corfu from above and the tranquility that is in the air. Angelo (the pilot) told us what to see and really put us at ease. In short : Are you going to Corfu and do you want a nice memory ? Book a jump with these guys!!!

The three members of the team are very professional. The experience it's self was amazing, breathtaking and the views from when you're up in the air are stunning. Definitely worth it.
