Ending our one-week Barcelona trip with a high note - Thank you Carles!
Review of Fly with Xirli
Reviewed July 16, 2017
If you are reading this review, you are already interested in paragliding, and I will give you this advice - BOOK NOW with Xirli!!!!
In short, our experience was wonderful. Carles and his expert pilots gave us the time of our lives. They also happen to be some of the nicest guys around. This is not amateur-hour. These guys are professionals.
We were picked up at our hotel at 8 am and driven to Berga, a cite 120 km away from the city. Both my husband and I fell asleep (note very polite) but Carles was kind enough to let us rest during the entire ride. My pilot/coach was Pep, he was the coolest and kindest dude ever! During launching, the passenger in the front (me) should run to pull the wing in order to place the wing in the air stream. I am petite and I was actually pulled off the ground by the wing and my feet couldn't even touch the ground. Pep did two persons' jobs and before i knew it, we were flying! He noticed that I was nervous, he showed me where to look at, taught me how to play with the video-stick(?), and even offered to teach me how to do thermal flying, which I regretfully declined.
Paragliding is such an awesome experience that is different than anything you can imagine. What you see at hundreds or even thousands feet above the ground is also very different with what you can experience on the ground, or in an airplane. Within a 15-20 minutes flight, we flew over the Montserrat mountain, fields, and roads. It was an incredible experience and we were able to appreciate the beauty of Barcelona from an unique perspective.
So why are you still reading? It's time to book! Enjoy your flight. You'll thank Carles, too, just as we have.
