Skydiving is a whole new experience and therapy you get only when experienced. We were supported by experienced and specialized instructors which made us feel more safe. Everything was provided to us and so we didn't had to panic about anything. t was a overall good teamwork.
We booked this city tour for us and it was absolutely mesmerizing, it being the city, with the vibrant street life or the handicrafts it present. As we were a group of friends travelling, it was complete fun enjoying our excursion specially being carefree as we had our pickup and drop arranged too. And as it was a waking tour we could also spend time on shops and stalls we were interested in.
It was one trip trip whose memories won't fade ever. Such an amazing experience we had throughout the trip. Loved the work you guys did. Thanks!
