This made for a great day! Follow the directions they give you, they are perfect. We got there early so we spent some time in the little town occidental at a cafe til it was time for our scheduled time slot. Your group meets in the parking lot at the scheduled time and there is a shuttle that takes you... More

We did this to take a break from wineries in the middle of our wine country trip & loved it! Scary at first but by the third zip line I wanted to do it all day! Gorgeous setting. Tour guides Terrence & Allan were so careful about the safety part, the equipment was in great shape ( you were always... More

I was scared to death, but had full confidence in our 2 tour guides. They were the best!! I am 61 years only and not thin. They could see the fear on my face but were very patient and encouraging. Terrance is my new sweetie. And Jason was sooo patient. I would never have made it through without both of... More

We stumbled on this zip tour while searching for something completely different online and were super glad we did! Having zip lined on several different courses in the US and Canada I can say this one compares very favorably to my favorite of the bunch. I loved having multiple lines and experiences - even the stairs and rappelling portions! The... More

Recently bought souvenir wine glasses at Sonoma Canopy Tours with logo: Zip the Redwoods / Sip Sonoma. Have done the ziplining adventure twice recently, first with our 12-yr-old grandson then with 23-yr-old granddaughter during their recent visits. Both times were equally thrilling. Guides were attentive and informative, as well as very conscious of everyone's safety and enjoyment. The Canopy Tours'... More

We read the reviews here before booking and they were true. We were lucky with the weather, but even more with the place and the people. Two great guides who were very competent but also very safety conscious. At no stage did you feel anything more than exhilaration and excitement. Thoroughly recommended.

This was the second zip lining experience for myself and one of my four companions, and although it was overall great fun, it was interesting to compare it to the other location (Calico Jack’s in Belize). The pickup spot is in the middle of a redwood forest, just a couple miles north of the town of Occidental, and though their... More

The canopy tour was good, although for recreation purposes I prefer a Segway tour or snorkeling. About 7 ziplines, 2 suspension bridges, a spiral staircase and a free rappel. It was nice to be up in the trees. I would have liked it if the ziplines went slower so I could look around more. They are very high--200 ft. at... More

We had ziplined before in Hawaii, but this tour was really HIGH! It was quite an adrenalin rush. Our guides were Nate and Justin and they were a lot of fun and really focused on safety. One person in our group was terrified and I was impressed how the guides, especially Justin, cared for her and made sure she felt... More

We rented a house about 45 minutes up the coast for two nights of remote relaxation and to just get away. When we arrived, the propane tank was empty. This meant we had no fireplace, no hot showers, no stove... We were forced to change plans and head back into town the first morning while we waited for the propane... More
