My son insisted that we should try so I couldn’t say no. something like a dad – son activity. I feel the need to thank the whole team for setting up this incredible experience. They provided transfers and everything was perfectly arranged. The pilots gave us very clear instructions as it was our first time. The equipment was well maintained and the guys made everything easy for us. My son went first and watching him flying left me speechless. Then it was my turn, and I felt incredible and really proud of doing this. The views are stunning. You should try it!
I tried during my holidays in Side and I will never forget it for sure!! If you want to try something different this is the option! When we started running I couldn’t even imagine what will follow. I felt like flying. The first moments I got a bit scared but then immediately I felt relaxed. To be honest the instructor helped a lot with this. He assured me about everything and made me feel confident. He had a camera with him during the flight and now I have some nice pictures. It is something to remember for a lifetime. Recommended.
Side Paragliding was an amazing experience with Excursion Mania, I would recommend everyone to try it, Trust me you won’t regret it. Pilots are well trained and you’re in safe hands so there is nothing to worry.
