My friends and I just finished our experience 2 days ago. Once booked, we reached out to them what is needed from us and what to expect. They were very fast to reply and they do reach out to you if you have not done so. Our four instructors were knowledgeable and take us step by step on what we need to do. Definitely get the pictures they took! Thank you to Dave and the rest of the team!

From the moment my family and I met our Airtime Paragliding team, the experience only got better. They first recommended and provided new shoes and snow pants for my mom and sister since we'd be walking through the snow (note, it's a bit of a hike to the takeoff point) and it'd be cold in the air. All of our guides were incredibly friendly and helped put us at ease. I rode with Pasqual (sorry, unsure of the spelling) who was so comforting and informative throughout the entire experience. The experience is a million percent worth it for the views! Absolutely incredible to be able to see both mountains and the valley. While pictures are not included in the experience price, the guides take pictures using a GoPro and I definitely knew I'd be buying mine (note, some guides seem to take more pictures than others). The only hiccup that occurred was that I'd booked a flight time at 3:45PM on a Tuesday and I received a text message from the company the day before saying that that actually wasn't an available flying time and asking if I could change it. They noted this is an issue with Viator's platform, but I wish I had been contacted sooner since my family had made other travel plans (I booked the paragliding experience over a week before the date) and I could only receive messages in Switzerland when on WiFi. All in all, a completely worthwhile experience in my opinion!

If you’re hesitant, DON’T do it

Could have been great but was far from it. One of the pilots on our way up seemed a little off. He was making jokes about this being his first time doing this, just getting out of prison and that we’re going to do a “lot of spinning” to which we say “no,no, no”. Sure enough not long after take off he did a few steep banked turns (I get that they probably weren’t steep to an experienced paraglider, but this was my first time). I got sick. I’m a small plane pilot, lived on ships, never been sick on a rollercoaster, plane or car. I didn’t understand how other people could handle this. When we got down, I asked my wife if her paraglider did sharp turns and she said definitely not. I reached out to airtime to share my experience. I spoke with Kora who didn’t let me speak before asking “did you tell him not to?” I said I have no idea what’s normal or not normal for paragliding and assumed this was how he had to turn. She got aggressive and asked me if we said no when he joked about spinning on the way up. I said my wife said “no, no,no”. She said “well, did you actually say no or just your wife?” What? I thought we made it fairly clear. I was going to let this go until I got an email from the manager, Kathryn which instead of an apology or an attempt to find out what happened, she accused us of having drank too much champagne the night before because we mentioned to their guides that we had a glass of champagne upon arrival at the hotel when we arrived the day before: “ I have been advised from our Pilot that the vomiting could be a result of consumption of alcohol (champagne) the previous day, which affected the enjoyment of your flight. Naturally, we would never allow anyone under the influence of alcohol to fly but at the time, the pilot perceived that there was no obvious signs of very recent (today) alcohol. However, upon reflection, when your wife and yourself had first met the Pilots, there were discussions of a most enjoyable night with champagne” They did offer me another flight which seems odd after an aggressive email blaming me for the bad experience before ever getting the information. My entire day in Lauterbrunnen was ruined by being sick. My advice is that if you’re at all hesitant to do this, don’t do it. If you do choose to go, try a smaller company with less variation in the guides. If you go with airtime, ask for Toby. He was an absolutely wonderful person and my wife had a nice flight with him.

Airtime Paragliding take the experience of our Passengers very seriously, to which we have gained an exceptional reputation and thousands of incredibly happy Passengers; our reviews and feedback attribute flying with us as one of the most spectacular and memorable moments of their lives. Regarding the derogatory Review that you have made, I have added the email that we sent to you on the day of your Flight. We also telephoned you on this same day. Neither a call back or response to our email was made. (Below Email from Airtime Manager on day of flight to Passenger): Good eveningTony, My name is Kathryn and I am one of the Manager's of Airtime Paragliding. Firstly, I would like to wish you Congratulations on your Honeymoon. I did try and call a couple of times this afternoon as I understand that you felt that your flight did not meet with your expectations and you were disappointed. I also understand that you were unwell and vomiting shortly after take-off, to which you asked the Pilot to land. The Pilot asked if you were sure as once the descent began, it would not be possible to regain lift. The Pilot offered a sickness bag in the air, which was declined. Then, you asked for it, to which it was then too late. The Pilot took just one turn to initiate the landing. Our Guest's experience and safety is paramount to us, to which we take incredibly serious. From what the Pilot and our day manager has communicated to me, is that you were advised to fly today instead of yesterday as today the weather was some of the most beautiful flying conditions (sunny and warm) compared to yesterday where the weather was cloudy, cold and raining. We strive to ensure that our Passengers are provided with the most up-to-date weather and conditions information so that there is the option to move a flight to another day. This was the case I understand with your booking. I have been advised from our Pilot that the vomiting could be a result of consumption of alcohol (champagne) the previous day, which affected the enjoyment of your flight. Naturally, we would never allow anyone under the influence of alcohol to fly but at the time, the pilot perceived that there was no obvious signs of very recent (today) alcohol. However, upon reflection, when your wife and yourself had first met the Pilots, there were discussions of a most enjoyable night with champagne to celebrate your Honeymoon. Our Pilot and harness was covered in Vomit, to which we do not have any issues with and the Pilot was able to thoroughly wash everything to conform to health and safety standards . The Pilot tried everything in his power to ensure that you were as comfortable as possible in such an unfortunate situation. We have been told that our Pilot was spoken to in a very rude manner and that is very disappointing to hear. From our understanding, your wife had a thoroughly enjoyable flight. We do always strive to go above and beyond to ensure that all of Passengers have the experience of a lifetime - to which for many, it really is their experience of their lifetime. We do not judge any of our passengers and I have only mentioned the possibility of alcohol being a contributor to the vomiting. Regardless, the Pilot has offered the option to take you flying again before you leave and hence my attempt to call you with this option. We do hope that you are feeling much better and can empathise when you are on holiday and not feeling your best. Please do let me know if you would like to fly again during your honeymoon. Thanks Kathryn (End of email) In a nutshell, our Pilots are highly trained and have been part of our Team for many years. We do not take steep turns and the sickness began straight after take-off, before any gentle turns were initiated. The Owner of the company was also flying at the same time and did not see any steep turns taken. The only gentle turn taken was to change direction for landing. The Pilot asked if you would like to land as soon as possible, to which he made all efforts to avoid any further sickness. However, whether alcohol or in fact anything else was a factor for the sickness, we did our upmost in this uncomfortable situation to be empathetic and ensure you had a positive experience. The Owner of the company also recalled that you had in fact mentioned that the day before the flight, as it was your Honeymoon, champagne had been enjoyed during the afternoon, which certainly implied more than one glass. I indeed offered a complimentary flight, despite the behavior and manner in which our Team members were spoken to...but my email and calls were not given any response. You did not allow us the opportunity after your flight to ensure that regardless of the initial sickness experience, that you could once again fly with us during your Honeymoon.

Amazing experience!!! My husband and I had a great time, especially as first time flyers. The service was exceptional. We were supposed to be picked up from Lauterbrunnen, however they were able to pick us up from a different location when we asked. The paragliding itself was indescribable, you'll really have to try it to see for yourself. Overall A+! This is something you definitely don't want to miss when in Switzerland!

Couldn't have had a better experience! Fabian and Walter were extremely professional, fun, and talented paragliders. On top of all that, I can't imagine a more picturesque spot in the world to go paragliding. The photos from our flight were simply stunning! Highly recommend for anyone coming to the Swiss Alps as it is a much gentler and easy alternative to skydiving.

Phenomenal experience w/beauty in every direction! So glad we did this! Benny was my pilot and he was so sweet. I felt safe and wasn’t scared at all. Benny has been flying for 35 years! Very experienced. We purchased the videos and pictures they took. We were in Lauterbrunnen celebrating our 30th anniversary! My husbands pilot was Bruno and he too was fabulous. Thank-you!

I can't think of a better place to paraglide than Lauterbrunnen Valley. The staff at Airtime was fantastic. Karo was very engaging and helped get our group pumped up for the launch. Oli was my pilot. I think he could tell I was a bit nervous so explained to me that it takes years to become qualified to pilot tandem paragliding trips. In fact, Oli had flown over 1000 times. Once in the air the feeling is like no other....you are flying!!!! Oli was great at showing me how paragliding works and he cracked a couple of jokes along the way to calm my nerves. My experience with Airtime Paragliding was a life memory!

My pilot Sébastien was the best most experienced and very professional. After getting rained out for two days, we got a brief opening and took off. This is the place to do it. An incredible experience in life. Easy to do and you just float down. A must do. Felt very safe.
