The couple first realized something was up when they saw a helicopter flying over one area in the mountains. 

'Toward the end of the walk, last peak, we start seeing helicopters coming up a ravine and dropping people off the top… We were like, this didn't seem right,' Jason told the publication. 

'We found out the people, they were the cameramen. When we came to the peak, we got stopped by what must have been a production team member, saying, "You can't go. We're going to land the helicopter off the top…" So we took a selfie,' he said.

After the choppers landed, the couple continued on their way where they ran into Cruise strapping on a paraglider. 

'I could tell it was him straight away,' Sarah said. 'By the time we got there, people were talking about Mission: Impossible was being filmed … but I was expecting a stunt double.' 

'He apologized first for the noise,' Jason added. '"Sorry, guys, I know we spoiled your walk with the noise." And then he said, "I like your dog."'
