I had a blast and Tony and Harold our guides were great. They were fun and made us all feel safe and secure. There were about 7 zip lines and they were about 30 seconds in length with the longest about 45 seconds. A great rush!

My son and I did the Valley Jump Zip. He had never zipped before but took to it immediately and loved it. I had recently zipped in Hawaii and it was great but the last 2 extreme jumps on this tour were the best! We had 12 in our group so the waits were a bit long and if it... More

A group of 4 of us were a little apprehensive about this experience. As soon as we arrived, everyone was so helpful and answered all of our questions and concerns that it turned into one of the highlights of our travel. The views were fantastic!!! Want to go back and do the Valley Jump. Just as a point of information,... More

My GF and I went on the X-treme tour and that's what you should do too. A lot more fun than the other two. Costs a little more but worth it. There is some hiking involved and some of it is steep but none of it is too long. Leave a number that's a land line in addition to your... More

You get amazing views of the Deerfield River valley and the foliage in the fall is beautiful. We did the mountain top tour and did not regret it. I will definitely be back for the Valley Jump.

When I told this to a staff member, they pulled him aside and totally put him at ease. They showed him the harnesses, explained each zip line, and cracked jokes with him. Our guides were... More

Great 3 hour tour. Great guides, Lydia and Tony. Wonderful time. I would book last minute -- the cancelation policy is rigid. Check the weather and then book. Amazing view on Columbus Day weekend!!!!!
