This was my first time on an ATV and it was excellent! Our tour guide, Neil, was knowledgeable and relaxed. He emphasized safety, but also let us have some fun and encouraged us to keep trying. I got stuck on the first dip and he helped me out then encouraged me to keep it up. I loved the tour -... More

I went to the Gnawbrew held there. I heard someone say it wasn't advertised very good. It doesn't need much advertising. It sales out. It will again next year so get you tickets early

We had a great time on this tour! We had 3 couples, so we didn't want to do anything too diffficult for the ladies and didn't choose the advanced tour. We were afraid the men might be a bit bored, but that was not the case. Our guide was Neil, and he was awesome! He watched how we all handled... More

Was here for a beer festival, so don't have much input on the activities here. Seemed like a neat place though!

This review is long in coming but I had to sit down and finally write it. The weekend of July 4th we stayed at the Valley Branch Retreat and from the moment we got there, our experience was an amazing one. Before booking the place, I spoke at great length on the phone with Anna, and she answered every question... More

Very fun for experienced or novice riders. Our only problem was that they overbooked and we were bumped to a different time later in the day but was compensated with a discount off the price.

I would highly recommend this tour. Things started a little unorganized but improved quickly. Neil was our guide. My wife and I were new to ATV riding and his patience was impressive. He guided us on a very novice course and walked us through any tricky manuveurs. This was a fun adventure that is now off my bucket list. I... More

Brenna and Bill were so much fun to have as guides on the explorer tour. You can tell they really enjoy their jobs. FYI, there are 10% off coupons available on line or some local businesses. Definitely book ahead of time because there are limited spots available. We had a blast!!!

Really a great place to get introduced to zip lines. Very professional guides and made it feel very safe. The guides work very well together and follow great procedures. A very cool place overall... lots more to do if you wanted in addition to the zip lines.

There were 6 of us in the screamer zip line tour. We decided to do this as a last quick stop on our way out of town. Natalie, Liz, and Brenna were THE BEST guides we could have asked for. They made the experience very enjoyable with their knowledge of zip lining, their attentiveness, great personalities, and their witty humor!... More
