This was a mother (on my bucket list) / daughter experience. My daughter has a fear of heights, so she was very apprehensive about the whole thing. She made it! The guides were very understanding and patient. She was assured that no matter where she was on the tour, she could stop and get picked up. I always felt safe.... More

Didn't know what to expect, being it was my first time. Never read a review, so I was going in blind. Made a reservation for 4 and got what we paid for. Had great tour guides. From the white waters of the Deerfield River, to the BA (Big A**) Tree. If you took the Zip tour, you'll know what I'm... More

What a great experience! The three of us, me, my wife and 17 yr old son, took the zipline and we loved every minute of it. Like others have said, the guides are very focused on safety and rightly so. It wouldn't take much to get hurt if you are not paying attention. But with our guides we felt totally... More

We had a fun morning ziplining with Zoar. The guides were very focused on the safety of the guests. I thought the scenery was a little boring, but my husband keeps reminding me it was a canopy tour - I was just supposed to see the trees. :) Even so, I would have been happy with fewer ziplines, but that...

My son and I took the 2-day Novice Whitewater Kayak Clinic at Zoar from June 25-26, 2014. Although Kayaking is more work than I initially thought we had a great time spending two days on the Deerfield River. Our guides, Dylan and Rodney, made the experience really great and helped my son feel comfortable even though neither of us had... More

I did the River and Roll clinic and the Intermediate River Clinic. I learned a ton, felt safe, and had fun. This is a great river for stepping it up safely, and the kayak school staff is attentive, kind, and really good at figuring out how to help you get better! Plus, there is a ton of great gear to...

It's Zoar Outdoors staff that makes the customer experience outstanding. These are people that understand how to provide exciting adventure experiences while never neglecting their clients safety. Janet is the Mary Poppins of the white water instruction community. It's always a jolly holiday.

If you're looking for a good rafting experience this is probably the best in MA. The zip lining was ok, not as exciting as I thought it would be but definitely worth trying if you've never done it before.
