Dad plus 2 teens thoroughly enjoyed the original canopy zip line tour. Also did Tarzan swing. Choose the original because it's actually in forest. Some of the newer ones seem more about extreme adventure than enjoying the canopy. Guides were great and we felt totally safe. Good mix of in the forest and zipping through open vistas. Longest zip is... More

This was the first time I have ever been on a zipline so I have nothing to compare it to. If you listen to the instruction and do what you are told then a real fun time can be had. It includes a tarzan jump to warm up, a clinb through the hollow core of a tree and small zips... More

This tour was the favorite activity of our trip. We did this tour packaged with the el trapiche tour and were very satisfied. We had great tour guides for the zip line and felt very safe the entire time. The tour guides are very professional and nurturing ( for those who are afraid of heights). The guides also helped us...

Went with husband and two girls (14 & 17). They were looking so much forward to this tour - up until the last moment I didn't know if I would go. I am afraid of heights. I am so happy I decided to go. It is so much fun. The guides are amazing and safety comes first on the whole... More

I'm afraid of heights but I did not want to miss zip lining through the Monteverde Cloud Forest. The Original Canopy Tour does this right. They are very safety conscious and obviously like their jobs as they were smiling and joking with us the whole time. I LOVED this experience! Zipping through the cloud forest is like nothing else -... More

The guides were awesome. Friendly and made you feel completely safe. This place was the one most recommended to me. There were 14 zip lines with a Tarzan swing and rappelling as well as a cool part where you climb a ladder through and inside a huge native tree. I truly liked the way you hang and are able the...

My fiance and I were originally booked with another, separate large group, but they cancelled at the last minute, so we had a private tour! That was a huge perk, because we didn't have to wait for others to go from each platform. The platforms between ziplines were pretty small, too, so I can't imagine putting 20 people on one!... More

Great ziplines, a tarzan swing, a quick rappelling experience and a climb to a platform via a hollow tree. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Arranged and executed efficiently with "safety first" instruction, the guides were the best. The first event was my most liberating swing ever. From there, it kept getting better and better combining good hiking up to platforms, zipping from one to the other with a rappeling experience and climbing activity up a 120 foot tree in between. This was a great... More

Went with my 13 yr old son and made reservations for the 7:30am tour the next day. CRC42,000. We showed up the next day and only one other couple was there. Everything was as described by others below however the Superman option was never discussed by either guide. I think they were ready to be done with the tour as... More
