Our Rangers are trained to interpret the natural environment and offer a personal guided experience pointing out natural features along the way. Two new bridges and two new ziplines added in 2012 give spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains and Fontana Lake. Be aware, Zipline Adventure Parks are a totally different experience with very limited zipping and a 2-hour self-guided tour on a high ropes course. If it is a zipline/canopy tour that you looking for, Nantahala Gorge Canopy Tours is where you want to go. A soaring zip experience through the trees, NGCT is More than a zip line ride. « less

We celebrated our 34th anniversary by doing this zip line tour. What a blast! We felt very safe. Our guides Ann and Lujon were very safety conscious. They kept us in stitches with their banter. Very entertaining. We also learned a lot about the flora and fauna as well as the local area. The views from the platforms were beautiful.... More

This was my first exerience at zip lining so I do not have any other zip line experience to compare it with, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the Nantahala Gorge Canopy tour. Liz and Raven, our guides, made the day especially enjoyable by making the experience fun. They were very helpful to everyone and made sure to point out things of... More

I am in the older generation and had a wonderful time. Safety came first and I really appreciated that. Raven and George are laid back which made the entire experience perfect. The views are fabulous, the laughter and joking continuous and an enjoyable way to check off an item from my bucket list. Thanks to them all from the train... More

We booked the Tarzan Train package and started out with a 2 hour train ride through the mountains by the river. Beautiful scenery and very pleasant and fun ride to the zipline. Our guides, Chief (he's a barrel of laughs) and Raven, who were knowledgeable, friendly and patient which made my first time ziplining experience so much fun! We had... More

Firstly,I must mention how wonderfully safety conscious, funny and friendly our guides were. Dana and Elmore made the trip so very enjoyable. We are a family of four,ages 10-62, and we all had such a good time. We would do this again in a minute!

Never once felt scared while out on the tour. We were shown how to use all the equipment and had to prove we were able before we started. Colby and and Blake were our hilarious tour guides, who eased anyone's anxiety of jumping off of a tree stand. If you get them, you are in luck because the stand-up comedy... More

We have been zipping many times and this was the most tame we have done. The zips are short and low to the ground. I hate not to give a glowing review as the guides were super. This would be a good tour for younger kids or those afraid of heights.

When I found out we would be going on the zip lining tour I wasnt sure what to expect. It was a wonderful surprise to have wonderful views mixed with an exciting element of fun. Our tour guides were funny and made the experience quite enjoyable.

We did the zipline/rafting combo this past week and had a blast! Dana and Elroy were our zipline guides and they were great--very friendly, funny, safety-focused at all times, and helpful. The equipment was well taken care of and we were given practice runs before we started the adventure. My family and I loved the experience and will definitely return... More

In the area there are many options and we are so happy that we chose this company! It has 13 zip lines so it's a nice long course which makes it a great value comparatively. Our guides were fun, informative, understanding, and safety conscious. Plus the photos are hilarious! Lujon and Liz really made the experience exciting. Make sure to... More
