Our daughters 12th birthday landed us at sunburst stables for a romp thru the woods on atv's. Our kids had never been on an atv, much less driven one. The staff was excellent teachers and provided a practice run in an arena before the tour. The honda 250cc was plenty for the type of riding we encountered. We rode past... More

The family really wanted to do a horse back ride while on vacation, and Sunburst stables provided us with an excellent ride. The guide was really friendly, the horse gentle, and the length just right! (we chose the 1 hour ride) I don't love riding horses, but mine was so easy to manage. The guide asked us if we wanted...

Even now looking at their web site makes me want to go there. We were excited to zip their 12 zip lines as advertised the drive from Helen would be short. We get there and no one is in the office so we wait. We wait 15 minutes and a girl who looks like she works there walks by, never... More

Visited Sunburst Stables today to take a short 1 hour ride with my wife and 8 year old daughter. Did not know what to expect but the reviews were good. Had an excellent ride with Dustin, our trail guide. Horses were tame, but eager to trot. Trail was heavily wooded, with some fairly steep ascents and decents. Not a rider... More

After being disappointed with another zip line operator in Helen a day before, we went to these guys. It was same price, they also honored a competitors discount coupon and the entire ride was full of thrills and fun all the way! They were true professionals.The staff polite, and had inculcated humour and jokes as "part of the package" making... More

We did the two hour horseback ride--and it was a beautiful ride through the woods and hills. The guides were very informative about how to control the horse--although they are very gentle and know the route. This was only the second time I was on a horse--but they were very good about giving instructions on the best way to go... More

This was our second trip to Sunburst Stables to zip line and won't be our last! The setting is bucolic, the staff fantastic, and the ziplining fun! This is one of the few zip line destinations that allows young/small children without sacrificing fun and excitement. Go; you won't be disappointed.

We went here last year in March for a friends bday. The weather was great and so was the zip-lining. We paid $70.00 a person for 10 zip lines. They also take very good pics for you to purchase if you like after you are done. Family owned business and very safe!!

We took 18 teens for ziplining and had a blast! The guides were absolutely awesome - encouraging and helping the ones who were a little scared as well as helping the more adventurous (how flip upside down or spin). The runs go over water, through trees, and span up to 1200'. The ride up is pretty exciting. It is a... More

This was the most fun of our stay in Northern Georgia. Sunday we went horseback riding along with 12 others. Horses were friendly and easy to ride. Not having rode in almost 30 years I was a little nervous but the guides were very professional and helped us along the steep hills and valleys along the trails. We trotted and... More
