Everything was just as listed in the tour information. Our tour guide was excellent - giving some of the history and answering the various questions about the area. The best thing was that this was a small group therefore had individual attention for the entire trip. Thanks for a great time.

This excursion sure lived up to my expectations and I could not be happier, other than the time went too quick. The guide and driver were both excellent and both made sure the group experienced Costa Rica to the full in this excursion. Thanks for a Great time! I would most definitely do this again, if I am in the area.

I came with 21 yr old granddaughter and 2 50 year olds. I am a 78 yr old grandmother and I have zip lined twice before. This zip line is run very safely and professionally. A double cable ensures safety. There is a braking system with someone on every platform to brake you and assist you. You go fast and far on cables 7-12. Yahoo!! My son apparently said to my granddaughter "There goes your 78 year old grandma!" Frankly, in my opinion, there was nothing to it! Easy peasy! Give it a try! You can do this! Our tour guide Renato was great! A great advocate for ecology and preserving the natural state in Costa Rica. Our driver, "el gato" (the cat) was also personable and involved in our having a good time. A great team ! This tour features only about a dozen people and you are in a modern, clean tour van....much better than being in a big old 60 passenger tour bus where you can barely see out unless you're 6 ft tall!

This tour could not have been more fun! Our driver and guide were great and the helpers on the zip line made you feel totally comfortable! Minimal climbing to get to the top, safely zip to and from enclosed platforms. My husband’s first zip experience and he loved it! Best zip I’ve been on! We are in our 60’s! This is great fun!
