This was our first ziplining experience. It was so much fun and had beautiful scenery. We want down man ziplines and also did some repelling and a bridge walk. We had a blast. We have since done ziplining in a jungle in the Dominican Republic and it didn't even come close to Zoar's ziplining, surprisingly! Definitely recommend.

Thank you for your review. We aren't exactly in a jungle location, but we're glad to hear that our New England experience rivals that of the tropics! More

Best white water tour company? They offer a variety of trips and levels of difficulty. They provide all the equipment and guides.

My kids and I went zip lining this past Sunday, what a BLAST! My daughter was given the zip lining as a birthday present and her brother and I were included in the gift! I am older (ha-ha) and afraid of heights BUT Zoar was fantastic! Safety is HUGE and you are always secured so there is absolutely NO CHANCE... More

My husband and I just returned from a canopy tour with Zoar in Charelmont, MA. Our guides were fantastic....fun, but at the same time, always had our safety in mind. We had a perfect day and can't wait to bring our kids!

This was indeed a ton of fun for all the reasons everyone has expressed. But here is my story. The zipline experience takes about three hours. My wife was actually the catalyst for me doing this even though it meant she'd spend the time in the car - mobility issues. There are ten or so ziplines, two narrow wobbly bridges,... More

Thank you for the review. I'm glad you appreciated Kelsey and Meghan's corny jokes and that you were able to experience the canopy tour in the fall when the trees are bare and you can easily see through the woods. We hope to see you again! More

I have been on several zip lining courses. This one is an excellent operation and course. Miles and Wayne were excellent guides. They were patient and kind and always made sure to follow proper safety procedures. The course provided plenty of thrills without being overwhelming. I might be a little challenging for timid younger children. However, overall, it think it... More

Glad you had a good time on the river with Curt. The first time on a whitewater raft trip can be a little anxiety provoking and I'm glad Curt was able to help you feel safe and comfortable. Hope to see you again for your second whitewater raft trip! More

I bought my wife a white water rafting trip for her birthday. I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and chose Zoar...and I am so happy I did. We were greeted right when we drive up and given clear instructions. They went through the training and off to the buses we went. Brian was our guide and he was awesome. This... More

This was a really fun anniversary adventure. Initially I was terrified but our guides Wayne and Sean made the whole experience so much fun. They were patient with me and explained things repeatedly so that I understood exactly what to expect. They gave a lot of positive feedback which allowed me to relax and just have fun!
