We were not able to go due to poor weather conditions, but they did not hesitate in giving us a full refund. I will try them again, feeling 100% confident in their integrity.

If there are two things that are must dos in Rio, I would say this is one of them along with visiting Christ the Redeemer. The experience is priceless and a memory you will never forget. You get the option to buy a t shirt and your go pro pictures and videos from the cameras 2 mounted on the hang glider. Kids under 16 are not allowed, much to the dismay of my son who already wants his 16th birthday in Rio.
