It was recommended by our hotel, and we were not disappointed. Great experience, and better prices than the competitors. 6-10 minute flight over the beach with the views of the Jesus statue in the background. Free video, photos and hotel transfers.

Unfortunately our instructors weren't very helpful. They didn't tell us anything about the landing. My wife had to wait one hour after my flight although many others were flying in between. And it seemed as her instructor wasn't concerned about her safety, he didn't put on her equipment carefully, he invested more time in adjusting the cameras. The flight itself... More

We booked our hand gliding through our hotel and we were not disappointed. It was our first time hand gliding and I couldn’t have wished for a better place to do it in. Our instructors were Beto Rotor and Jose Paulo who were very good, professional and made us feel at ease. I also have to talk about the driver... More

This was an impossibly perfect experience. Great value for money, incredible adventure, and a pilot who is as memorable as the flight itself. Not to be missed.

Hang gliding is way more awesome then paragliding and Rio is the place. Hilton kept in contact with me via email and everything was arranged conveniently including pick up and drop off at my hostel. Unlike skydiving I didn't have to wait at all before I was running off the launchpad. A must do in Rio!

Rio is a beautiful place anyway, but to be able to take it all in from a birds eye perspective is truly a rare treat. This was my first time hang-gliding but I felt very comfortable with the instructor and after seeing so many people soar successfully. The first step off the platform takes your breath away, but it's more... More

Amazing experience with a very talented instructor, Max. He was positive and generally a bit of a laugh, but inspired great confidence in his ability. We had a great flight and we felt we got value for our money. The organising beforehand with DeHilton was fantastically easy and we just paid on the day. One thing to be aware of... More
