We had a great time on the Original Zipline tour. Johnny, Brian and Andre were great. My wife was a bit nervous about doing the zip line but the guides helped her to feel comfortable and she had a great time as did the rest of us. Be prepared for trekking a ways through the Cloud Forest before starting the... More

We opted to go with the OCT team rather than the better known and more widely promoted Sky folks. This is the real deal. Quaint platforms on the highest trees inside the forest. Thrilling sections, 14 in all. We enjoyed the fact that this takes you through the canopy in many places and lets you experience the forest rather than... More

This experience was brilliant, the group was small and manageable unlike an experience elsewhere, the staff were very friendly, professional and safety conscious, we never felt ill at ease. Whilst walking to the starting point the guides pointed out animals and talked about the landscape. The Tarzan swing was a new experience and was very good, the ziplines all varied,... More

We went here on a cruise ship shore tour. My wife and I are first-time zip-liners and had a fun time. We went on 11 lines and felt very safe, even though we are both a bit concerned with heights. Guides are fun and very concerned with safety, making sure that everyone was either tied into a safety line or... More

My family had the wonderful experience of zip lining on Monday, December 29. There were 13 people in our group and we enjoyed getting to know everyone. My children are 11 and 9 and I was worried that this would be too much for them. My husband chose The Original Canopy Tour based on prior reviews - the lack of... More

Let me start by saying I'm not an adventure seeker and I'm afraid of heights. That being said, I really enjoyed it. The guides were wonderful. They gave thorough instructions and safety was clearly their prime objective. I did not feel rushed. I felt safe and did not worry about the height. We did this as part of an excursion... More

Enjoyed my tour a lot. The guides gave very clear instructions and were serious about safety while still being a lot of fun. I didn't feel rushed at all although there was never much wait to keep moving.

We went on nine different lines, and I personally loved it! It was our first zip line experience and it was GREAT! The young men who helped/guided us were very nice, very efficient, and made us all feel very safe. We saw birds, butterflies, iguanas, crocodiles... All in all, I'd be game to go again!

I highly recommend this company for a great zip-lining experience. The canopy tour was great and the guides are fantastic. This is a fun and completely safe experience. You start off with a tarzan swing which kicks your adrenaline into high gear followed by 14 zip lines, some short, some long, some faster and others faster. Enjoy the ride.
