Was much better than I expected - the guides were exceptional.
An unbelievable experience. Every aspect exceeded my expectations from the friendly staff to the phenomenal view from the zip line. Truly amazing.
This was unbelievably amazing! We zip lined through the canopy and over the canopy! The views were breath-taking! The tour guides were very sweet and humorous. We felt safe with them and we had a blast. I took my 10 and 7 year olds and they LOVED it! Definitely a highlight of the trip!
