Ok - so we went as a family of 5 and signed up for the combo tour. Definitely do this - it's a good deal and you get to do the bridges on a guided tour, the tram, and the zip lines. THe day we went the tram wasnt working so we hiked up to the top for the zip... More

It was our first time zip lining and we had a blast! At first it seems really scary but you forget about it once your having so much fun. The workers attach you to the zip line and break you at the end, so there's nothing to worry about. Also, one of our favorite parts was on some of the... More

We did not take the sky trek, but the sky walk and the sky tram. We could see that the sky trek zip line was described in the brochure as extreme. We could see that the lines were tall and long. Also, it was expensive at $70. Our party of 6 would set us back $420.00. We could see and... More

Well this was my first time to ever attempt something like this. I am 53 years old and very afraid of heights. When we arrived I began to panic. The guides talked me through the whole thing. They were gentle and kind and not condesending to me. They rode with me as I was terrified. When it was my time... More

The sky walk is great ... The bridges hardly sway and we were in a group of six with a fabulous guide who showed us things there is no way we would have seen. No one else was anywhere to be seen so we felt alone in a humongous cloud forest ... An amazing experience. Originally I'd booked for the... More

The people at Sky Trek made the zip lining experience so fun and memorable! I was a little nervous since this was my first time, but the wonderful workers were able to calm any nerves with silly jokes and laughter! They even had go-pro cameras on the helmets (if you wanted), so we were able to bring home a video... More

We did the 5 bridge tour with a guide. Really liked it. The hanging bridges were so cool and give you a different perspective on the forest. Being up in the canopy is pretty unique. We would have gone back to walk on our own if we had more time. There is actually a sixth bridge that is not on... More

My husband and I did the Sky Tram + Trek + Walk combo tour and it was fantastic. Personally, I wasn't sure what to expect because it is such a touristy activity, but it far exceeded my expectations. Our guide was excellent and knowledgeable, the hanging bridges offered superb views of the cloud forest, and the tram was a long... More

My fiance and I were here a couple weeks ago and did the Sky Tram + Trek + Walk tour and I'll have to say that it was quite a memorable experience! I've done zipling a couple times before, but nothing like this. The tram took us to damn near the top of the mountain and we were ziplining WAY... More

This was my first zip lining experience and it was great. I do wish that there were different types of zips in my tour. We did the standard zip for all ten. I would like to do some tarzan or superman zips along the way to up the action. After a while, the view was much better than the thrill.... More
