This was the best zip line tour I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I also enjoyed the camp ground here. I also zip lined while at my stay on Myrtle Beach, SC which was just OK. In fact, it prompted me to write this review about Zoar from my visit there months ago. Great experience!

Did the Dryway class 3-4. I noticed right away that the OTHER Deerfield River companies do NOT have a lot of female rafting guides and I wonder why? The local girls at ZOAR are beyond capable. They provided a personal experience with a professional attitude while keeping fun a close second to our safety. I forget our guides names but... More

A bucket list item, of sorts, for her. We got to tag along and had a ball. The boys are all daredevils and Mom isn't. We all had fun, the crew made it fun for all of us. No one was too scared or bored. Tough to achieve with our group. They did an excellent job. Adequate facilities and equipment.... More

It's exhilerating to say the least and just plain fun!! Great for anyone that likes an adrenaline rush and no need for experience. It's simple and they show you how to do everything. It's very safe and the fresh air is wonderful. The provide a snack and water or hot chocolate halfway through the tour. I will definitely do it... More

I bought this for my husband and me, and even though he went reluctantly, he had a great time! The 2 guides, Daniel and Abbie, were great and kept us moving along. We did a lot of different kinds of zips, and that kept it interesting. We had a little trial run so they could show us what we needed... More

I took my 29 yr old son to Zoar zip line canopy tour last week and it was a very nice time! I have been zip lining one other time in Costa Rica, but this was much better than that. The equipment was top notch and I never felt unsafe. Our guides, Hannah and Howard were very experienced and entertaining,... More

I am a 63 year old woman who just finished the three hour zip line trip with Zoar in the Berkshires. I had the time of my life. The guides, Curt and Wayne were very good and always watched out for our safety. In addition they were personable and very polite. They never made anyone feel awkward or inept. Although... More

After a little guidance and training - we zip lined through the canopy of trees@! A wonderful experience with a hands-on staff to guide you and then cheer you on@! Safe and serene - let the experts take you on a zip trip - 11 lines and too many thrills to count. Accomplishment IS a thrill!
