There are no words to describe the adrenaline rush of the Valley Jump Tour! The zipping is awesome (long and fast), the views of the valley are astounding and the entire experience will take your breath away! What a thrill for a 63 year young grandma! It's become a right of passage for my 4 grandsons...two down, two to go!... More

We were 1st time zipliners! It was GREAT! Tony and Scarlet helped us every step along the way (and even pointed out the black bears from the ski-lift) - We can't wait to do this again.

Did the Valley Jump Zip Line tour with two of my friends and we loved it Two guides, Scarlett and Tony went with us. You could tell they really loved what they do and it showed. They were professional, safety conscious, and informative. Most of the runs go through the forest which really provides a greater sense of speed. The... More

It's a great way to spend a few hours high in the trees on top of a mountain. What a rush! Second time is a charm. They know what they are doing at Berkshire East!

My wife, who is afraid of heights, and I had a great time doing the Valley Jump zip line tour at Berkshire East. The guides were professional and friendly, and seemed very competent. Also, the tour was well-run and felt very, very safe. It was a great time.

We absolutely loved this ride. Very safe. Workers very knowledgeable and friendly Very comfy ride up and awesome on way down. Takes about 1 minute to come down. Price was acceptable. It's better to go when there are no lines cause it can get very busy and lines are long. Great mountain views. Can't wait to do it again.

Amazing views, amazing people, amazing experience! Anyone that thinks that going on a zip line is 'not for them' they should definitely book a day here! From start to finish the staff makes you feel incredibly comfortable and makes sure that you are having fun. I don't think I could have found a better place to try it for the... More
