Me and my girlfriend signed up to do this and what a great day we had. Ricardo is a great pilot and put us at ease. We were both really thrilled with the hang gliding experience and would whole heartedly recommend using Delta Flight.

OMG! We went for a hangglide last week with Ricardo and Delta flight! And it was so great! Amazing! I will save the feeling in my heart forever! We had a little unluck with the weather (cloudy and windy) but Ricardo was hopeful and after many hours we could jump of the clife! So worth it! Best I have ever... More

Multiple emails back and forth to even attempt to arrange hanggliding. Had to call twice just in the confirming stage. Day of supposed hang gliding trip, driver hasn't even shown up 45minutes past the pickup time. We called and it would be another "10-15 minutes." At least 1hour delay. Forget it.

I booked a week ago and was told I could get a 1230 pickup. I emailed back with my address and then waited for the pick up. Didn't turn up so I phoned and was told only pick ups are from Ipanema or Copacabana. A detail which should have been emailed. I explained I emailed a week ago and didn't... More

By far one of the best experiences of my life. Ricardo and Albino are true professionals. All the gear is properly checked and secure so you so no need to be anxious. You are definitely in safe hands.

I was in Rio last week and my day tour guide connected me to Ricardo at Delta Flight (AKA Rio by Jeep). Ricardo has been hang gliding since 1986. He is fantastic! Everybody knows him. He was very professional and made me feel safe before the flight and during. I wouldn't jump off a mountain with just anyone, but I... More

Hang-gliding with Ricardo over Rio was a great experience. He was really responsive and helpful in setting up our reservation, and followed through with a great flight. He was knowledgeable about all things Rio and hang-gliding. I would definitely recommend Rio by Jeep to anyone.
