The ride and views from above were worth the trip and experience.

If you want to accommodate two people, it will be a tight fit in the rear seat - so just be aware of the space limit; I'm a 32 waist and my girlfriend is thankfully 5'3" and we were snug.

Did this with my grandson, we definitely enjoyed it, Bill the pilot was very good, the only thing is we would have liked to have stayed up alot longer

Everyone at Bay Area Glider Rides was great. The pilot was one of their instructors so was knowledgeable capable and very nice. It is quite a different perspective being in a much smaller aircraft. There is no engine vibrating the plane and the maneuverability is amazing. Flying in the glider plane is very peaceful.
