CANNON BALLLLLL! As a first time "zipper", I can honestly say this was a fantastic way to start our trip in Alaska! We are from Minnesota, and happened to be paired up with a family who were also from MN! Our guides were very knowledgable and fun. Safety was always the number one priority. What a blast!

I had heard ziplining was wonderful from a friend so decided to try it despite it being a pricey form of entertainment. I was anxious once we got up high and started going fast. I screamed a bit but all in all felt safe" didn't appreciate having to stand so long on the wobbly platforms while waiting for everyone to... More

My husband and I were so glad we booked this excursion on our trip to Alaska. It was one of the best of our vacation. The guides Tyler and Richard were great, very safety conscious while also having fun with the group. The zip lines are exciting and part of the tour also has three rope bridges and one place... More

We walked into DZT without planning months ahead of time for this activity. They fit us in no problem. They were friendly and fun. We showed up the next day for our tour and were welcomed and had great conversation with the front staff while we waited to leave. Caroline and Jeremy were awesome! When we got to zip lining,...

DZT has done an amazing job of creating a unique experience for locals and tourists. I've lived in Alaska 30+ years. When my 14 year old nephew came to visit, I used it as an opportunity to get up to Talkeetna and check out ziplining. WOW, were we glad we went. The guides gave us ample training and alleviated all... More

This was a first-time zip for my wife and I; our guides Alex & Stelly did a great job running our group through training, then negotiating the zips, rappel, & rope bridges. They both had an easygoing charm and good humor that complemented the overall experience (in contrast with some tour-guide types who are overly chatty, or quiet to the... More

The two guides were patient, informative and funny. It was a wonderful first experience zip lining and as soon as it was over I wanted to do it again. The views were incredible.

We were on the 1300 tour on 29 July. After three zipline rides there was a tree found on an upcoming line. The guides immediately rapelled each person off the platform to safety. Upon return to the office we were given a choice of: waiting until a full course inspection was completed and dangers were rectified, a rescheduled tour on... More

My wife, two adult daughters and I went on the zip line tour. WOW!!! We always felt safe and our guides wonderfully handled one of my daughter's early anxiety. The guides had her scream during her next zip and that was the perfect release. The rest of the tour was anxious free. Views were exceptional. I highly recommend Denali Zip... More

Our group of 8 and 2 guides had a fabulous/fun time even though it rained. Our guides (Ryan and Tyler) helped us get over our nervousness with top notch information and instruction. We even though of going back for a second trip but just didn't have the time.
