I am so very delighted that Me and my friends Fly with the best pilots of Xirli. Xirli didn’t only enhanced our joy with his cheerful personality but also tried his best to make us feel safe, comfortable, happy and enjoy our day . We did hiking to La Mola mountain in Barcelona with him and his 2 more friends and all of us became from strangers to friends . Xirli appreciates the people and enjoys equally than us. My friends and me are so happy and would like to recommend this project “FlywithXirli” don’t think twice to contact him.

Yesterday I had one of the best experiences in my life! It was a long time that I wished to know how it feels to fly....but I had never had the courage to 'jump'.
From the first contact with Xirli I knew that I was in good hands for this challenge. Very professional and experienced, he looked for the best day and weather conditions so that we could have an enjoyable flight and pleasant sensations.
I have to thank Pep, the instructor, for his explanations and aim to make an unforgettable flight. He transmitted such calm that I could relax and revel in the views. I am ready to repeat again!!

I am a P4 pilot from the US and 3 other P4s and I hired Xirli as a guide and driver while we were in Spain last week. Xirli was an invaluable resource for each site we visited, for particulars about the site, for weather and conditions, and also accommodations and restaurants. All done with a big smile and warm attitude. He drove our rented vehicle and we sat back and relaxed- although he also had his own vehicle- ours was bigger and better for 5 people. On a non flying day he took us for a great day trip to Montserrat just for fun. Xirli is very professional and knowledgeable about flying and also just a great person. He added so much to our flying experience in Spain.

Dear Xirli,
recent October 2019 Antonie and I enjoyed an unforgettable experience with you and your pilots Pepe and the second very kind guy (sorry, I forgot his name). It was our first time paragliding and an unbelievable experience.
It was organized as a birthday surprise for Antonie and Xirli was so kind to prepare an extra chocolate cake which was given to Antonie after we had landed - perfect, thanks once more!
Xirli picked us up from a hotel in midtown Barcelona and drove us to Berga. It was a very relaxing drive with Xirli talking about a lot of different things. Before we drove to the top of the mountain we were introduced to both pilots who are very friendly, funny and laugh a lot ;-).
During the flight we were able to take a lot of pictures/videos and had an amazing as well as a very safe flight. We felt very secure and safe during the entire flight since both pilots are absolut professionals. The views were incredible!
After landing we had the delicious chocolate cake and were brought back to Barcelona once we were finished.
We both can highly recommend this experience as well as Xirli and his perfect organized team! Have a go!! Thank you Xirli & Team!

Dear Max, It has been a pleasant surprise for me to receive your review. I have fond memories of the day you and I planned to surprise Antonie. Everything went perfectly, just as we had planned. You and Antonie enjoyed that important day for you, and I was lucky to have been part of your celebration. I wish you to be very happy and to keep this joy that characterizes you. A hug!

We had a group of 4 paragliding pilots from the US and Xirli was our invaluable guide. He knew the different sites, constantly checked the weather and made recommendations that allowed us to fly several different locations, and multiple launches at each site. Maybe as valuable, and as fun, was Xirli's knowledge of restaurants and his circle of friends. He drove our rental van to the various sites and even arranged lodging for a few of the nights.

This is a much belated review of my day with Xirli. I was traveling solo to Spain and decided I really wanted to go paragliding. I had planned a trip to Greece that I cancelled last minute but decided I this was my "out of my comfort zone" experience I was going to do in Spain. Xiril picked me up from my hotel in Barcelona and we went to Berga to meet his pilot Pep. They made me feel incredibly comfortable. So much so they were surprised I was not nervous for the flight at all. It was a little chilly for November, but the mountains had just received their first snow and it was a beautifful sight. It was something I would definitely do again!

I also booked the afternoon sightseeing tour of Montserrat. Xirli took hundreds of pictures for me for my Facebook and Instagram pages! I admit I pushed myself a little hard on the hike because I wanted to make sure we got to the monastery during daylight time. Xirli made it a memorable day, and I felt a bit guilty that I hadn't paid him enough to fight Barcelona traffic at rush hour to bring me back. He kept in touch and helped me with advice for my flight to Malaga a few days later. I can't say enough about the service Xirli provided. He is truly enthusiastic about his job and I hope this pandemic doesn't hurt his business too much. I'd love to come back!

Xirli is a very passionate paraglider!

He set my partner and I up for an amazing experience in which he showed great flexibility and helpfulness. He has a lot of experience and knows the right people in the paragliding world.

I'd like to thank him again for the wonderful day we had.

Incredible 90min sailplane flight in La Cerdanya. Amazing experience, excellent organisation, unforgettable!

Sergi, a really pro pilot, welcomed us and was totally friendly from the very beginning and during the whole experience.

After a short insurance paperwork I was briefed on how a sailplane flies and how the pilot controls it, seeing and touching the plane and controls and getting a full explanation and kind answer to all my questions.

We took the plane to lane heading and there I got my safety equipment and learn some more details once seated on the front of the sailing plane. The pilot seats behind and has duplicated controls so, if wanted, you can take control of the plane once at a safe altitude and can enjoy piloting yourself (with the pilot closely watching!!) I couldn't believe it! He was constantly checking if I was enjoying, asked me were I wanted to go, let me pilot... We searched for vultures, for lakes pictures, thermal currents, mountain landscapes...

My dream of being a sailplane pilot for a day was more than satisfied, I turned again and again on a thermal current, sailed softly enjoying the landscape and took plenty of fotos from wonderful Pyrenees.

My wife attended all the briefing too, she was allowed very close to the landing and enjoyed too my sailing day, took plenty of videos and saw other pilots, take-offs and landings, flight ambience and even a sailplane looping!

My advice? go for the 45min flight at least, with less than that you won't have time to relax, enjoy, take pictures and build a memory that will last for ever.

Overlooking terrace, bar, restaurant and open air restaurant make id a good day for your family too.

Thanks Xirli and Sergi

Our day with Xirli was a highlight of our 2-week trip to Spain and France! We knew we were in the right hands when we walked into the office of the paragliding company and they greeted him as an old friend. That's how you feel at the end of the day - like you've seen the sights and made memories with a new friend.

We chose to do paragliding and a hike on Montserrat. Xirli made the experience seamless, stress-free, and so much fun. From our hotel pickup to breakfast and coffee at a small cafe, to the thrill of paragliding and the awesomeness of hiking Montserrat, we were able to enjoy everything in comfort and at an unrushed pace. If you want a truly unique experience with an unbeatable guide, book a day with Xirli!

Xirli is one of the nicest and funniest people I have met! If you’re looking for a paragliding experience or any other aerial activity, you should definitely contact his amazing company!
All the process is completely safe, he gives you all the information you need and keep you updated about the weather forecast, what to wear... and the list goes on.
Very serious and passionate about what he does, I’m 100% he’ll not fail to offer you EXACTLY what you’re looking for (and definitely MORE), because that’s exactly what he did with me!
He’s also a great surprise organizer! So don’t hesitate to organize a small birthday cake as a gift for someone whose birthday is the same day as the activity!
