But I was so wrong and I'm soooo glad we ended up coming. WOWOWOW, we did the Obstacle courses and the tree climbing courses. I... More

Ziplining is a great way to spend the day in the mountains in Vermont. ArborTrek is an excellent company to do the ziplining with. Amanda and Tom were so professional and made sure that "safety was first". We knew we were in excellent hands for 2.5 hours. What was most impressive is how the two handled my husband. He is...

Five of us enjoyed a beautiful and fun afternoon in the treetops, led by guides Kate & Kevin. We were with another family group of four, making nine, plus our two guides. While on the treetop platforms it did get a tad crowded at times, but our guides were organized and had our safety as a priority at all times,... More

We had a great time on our first zipline adventure. Our two kids (9 &12) had a blast. Our guides, Tanner and Kevin, made our group feel comfortable, laugh and keep a nervous Mom calm. Great guys! Completely worth the money!
