My 7-year old son and I went paragliding with Fly Chamonix last week. Everything was absolutely perfect. It was easy to book and pay online, and Sean was prompt in responding to any question, however detailed. Both Sean and Fred (the other instructor) were a joy to paraglide with. The instructions were clear, including an explanation of why we needed to wait while the wind picked up in the right direction, what all the glide would entail, etc. And the gliding itself was quite spectacular - both Sean and Fred let us handle the glider ourselves (yes, Sean let my son do it!) and carried on a pleasant conversation while we were paragliding. Overall, I am hard pressed to think of anything they could do to improve the experience. Thank you, Sean.

Overall, an amazing experience! When one first comes to Chamonix, one sees multiple paragliders in the sky flying off of the mountains, and it seems almost magical to do it yourself. Our guides - Sean, Frederic, Patrick, and Patrick - were very friendly and enthusiastic. There is something for everyone in these flights, depending on what you would most like to do while flying; daredevils can learn to pilot the parachute themselves or do dizzying swings in the air, while those less inclined to thrill-seeking can see the mountains and the town of Chamonix from a new angle. The guides are very adaptable to either option. A great first flight experience.

My wife and I were able to easily book and pay for our flight online. Everything was explained to us and safety was top on the list. We definitely recommend this company

Words cannot describe the thrill and pure joy of paragliding for the first time, my daughter and i had booked in advance and we were greeted by Sean- a real gentleman.
The flights were fantastic and the views amazing, do not be afraid to try- the experience feels totally safe and easy and above all very friendly and professional.
There is only one issue- we must return to fly again!

Sean and his team were excellent for all of us. We were 2 adults and 3 kids aged 14,12,9. Everyone felt very safe, and the pilots were great for all of us. Really good family experience.
