Loved the experience , super safe and fun. Alexandre prepares you for the jump throughly and if yo are a little scared before you meet up with him, by the time he is finished giving you instructions ,you'll be confident.

Thank away

Wow what an amazing experience. Great guide with Klauss and his assistant was so helpful. Highly recommend Klauss and this company. Super job! Wonderful view and our girls had so much fun. What a rush running off of a platform 1700 feet above sea level....More
