      If you would like to waste of your time and money, then you can still make an appointment with them
      1. 他們忘記了預訂的行程!!!!! 詳情:這是我的蜜月之旅,我計劃在整個旅行結束時體驗串聯滑翔傘飛行。 不幸的是,下了一場大雨,所以我需要重新安排到後天,這也是我最後一次機會,因為那天中午有航班。 工作人員同意重新安排。 最後,我看到集合點沒有人,工作人員說上午9點沒有導遊,上午10點對你來說可以嗎? 什麼???? 如果上午9點不行,你為什麼在上午9點做出承諾? 你浪費我的時間,浪費我的錢去那裡! 1. 糟糕的客戶服務!!!!! 詳情:這顯然是Icarus的錯,但他們無論在電話中或是我追回退款的電郵中連一句抱歉都沒有說!!! 這麼簡單的承擔責任歉意也沒有 員工姓名:Christina Pienaar 這是一次可怕的經歷,毀了我的蜜月之旅

      Fantastic experience!
      Such a treat getting to experience Capetown from above with Icarus Paragliding. It was almost too windy to fly but the team constantly monitored the wind and eventually Jacques took me out on a full 17 minute ride. Jacques was th best instructor, we had a blast up in the air, he made me feel very safe and comfortable at all times and the entire experience was magical. We even saw dolphins. Highly recommend it, thanks again! Steffi from Germany

      Highly recommended!
      Flew with Jaques today and had an amazing flight! He made me feel very comfortable and made sure I was having a great time. Made sure the footage of the gopro was good, so I can make everyone jealous back home. When we first got to the mountain the wind wasn’t right, but the communication with Icarus was good. We could come back in 2 hours, when they expected the wind would’ve changed. As we didn’t have a car, Icarus brought us back to the hotel. Highly recommend Icarus to book the Paragliding with!!!!

      My YOLO moment!
      I've been wanting to do this but hesitating for the longest time due to my fear of falling. After careful review of this company, I was rest assured. After all, you only live once! Jacques is very experienced and you will feel safe flying with him. Since I was the last customer that day, he even extended my time flying much to my enjoyment!

      Short but sweet
      I loved the experience of paragliding from start to finish. Everyone I dealt with was fun and informative. I knew exactly what was going to happen, when it was going to happen, and what my part was in the process. It was an absolutely beautiful way to see Cape Town. A word of warning: if you’re prone to motion sickness, take an extra Dramamine. The one I took the morning of paragliding wasn’t quite enough. A couple of the turns made me a little queasy, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying myself.

      Loved every minute of the paraglide!
      My best friend and I did the paragliding at daytime with Icarus right off signal hill in Cape Town. It was soooo much fun ! The team made us feel super safe and everything was done very professional. The view over Cape Town was insane and I really liked that we flew through a little bit of fog coming from the ocean at sea point. SUCH A COOL EXPERIENCE!

      Amazing experience
      My best friend and I went paragliding with Icarus paragliding and we simply loved it. To fly above Cape Town, see the lions Head next to you and the Table Mountain is something that won’t fade out of your memories. I definitely recommend you their paragliding. Very safe, best equipment worldwide and friendly atmosphere :)! To land next to the ocean is amazing. Jacki

      Amazing and cool guys
      Our first paragliding flight and that above Cape Town was amazing. We wanted to make a sunset flight first, but unfortunately the weather did not work out, so Icarus offered us a morning flight. The communication was great, received an email and WhatsApp immediately an answer. The introduction for the flight of our flight attendants was great and the flight with them was just funny! We will be back and will fly with Icarus again! The photos and video footage we received within seconds on our smartphones. I highly recommend it! Greetings to John, Jacques and Thymore :-)))

    Provide a more up to date/accurate planning tool to book a flight. I booked twice through Manawa and selected the available times. These bookings got confirmed and shortly afterwards cancelled twice due to the availability.

    Icarus wasn't really offering suitable solutions to reschedule the booking. The communication was quite blunt through sms. I was really looking forward to experience the paragliding. But got really disappointed with the way Icarus handled my booking.

    Next time when I visit Cape Town I hope to have a better experience with a different company.

    We were really lucky to find Icarus paragliding through a recommendation from our accommodation. We were quite nervous about which operator to use as had heard some stories of safety risks from other providers. The Icarus team were absolutely wonderful. We arrived to signal hill and met the team, were introduced to those facilitating the tandem and instantly felt we were in safe hands! These guys were hugely experienced and took time to explain the steps needed to ensure a safe flight. We had an absolutely amazing experience and enjoyed every minute! Would not hesitate to recommend to those looking for some adventure! Thanks to the Icarus team.

    What a super experience! I knew the the view was going to be absolutely breathtaking, but I still hesitated.... Jumping from a mountain - and also allowing your daughter to do so - isn't something one does daily!! But the Icarius team was super pro, from the start to the end. From the meet-up point, to the technical and security explanation, to the super smooth take off which was a gentle walk (not even a run), to the super smooth flight with a fun yet super experienced pilot who stayed much longer than advertised, and finally the faultless landing, literally 2 metres away from my daughter. I recommend without any hesitation.

    I have had the great pleasure of flying with Jacques, John, and Carlos from Icarus. I keep on going back for more. There are many operators in Cape Town, but Icarus will always be my first choice. The pilots know their stuff and have been flying for decades, and they're cool dudes too. It's an absolute must-do!
