Ok, Here's the deal. I'm an "extreme" guy...I've been skydiving, whitewater rafting, skate and snowboard dot dot dot. I wasn't looking for extreme on this trip since I was bringing my 72 year old father. Turns out this trip was perfect for the both of us. We did the Valley Tour - the big one. The first few zips are... More

Third trip to Berkshire East for ziplining. Gone with friends in the past but this year took my adult kids. They've never been and were pleasantly surprised. It's a trip to get here from Boston but we actually arrived about an hour ahead of schedule. We were moved to the tour that was leaving in 15 mins instead of having... More

The Mountain Top Tour with Harold and Tony was great!!!! We decided to do the medium Tour because it was our first time at such a huge Zip-Line-Area. It was totally exciting and next time we will do the advanced Valley Jump Tour - don't be afraid of it!!!! It's lot of fun!!!!

My fiancé and I went here for her birthday and had a blast. We did the valley tour (I think). We literally zipped from one mountain to another. The views were breathtaking. Our guides were really nice and accommodating. I forgot my inhaler but they stopped a couple times during our hike. They had water throughout the zips which was... More

We are so happy we zip lined at Berkshire East, it was the highlight of our trip! There were MANY beautiful views and it was exhilarating. The staff was kind and explained everything well. And on top of it all, Berkshire East uses wind and solar power! What a great all around experience.

We were a group of 4, one was VERY apprehensive about ziplining. After the first zip she was all smiles and gun-ho. Afterwards, she was planning on coming back and was going to recommend ziplining to her "wimpy" friends. The company ( Sarah and Ellie) was very thorough and safety conscious, they made it fun for 1 child, 1 adult,... More

It was a perfect day, the views amazing, the jumps fun but not too scary. (We did the Mountain, mid-level, tour.) First time zip-lining -- we felt safe and not scared. Guides Robin & Sam were great. Such a beautiful way to see the scenery, we'll definitely come back in the fall and do the Valley Jump.

Our guides, Sarah and Ellie, were great, made the whole experience very light and fun. We had a group of ten and everyone was very patient. Going back next year for the valley jump!
