Really nice people from original canopy tour, they take pictures with our cameras during the tour. It is not so scary like another companies in Monteverde and all the time through the jungle. On the last 2 station we can see beautiful view to Pazifik. We have been 5 people on this tour! Thanks a lot for this nice tour!!!

My wife and I just had the pleasure of going on this Tour. We have done many "zip lines " on excursions from the Cruises we have been on and this is one of the best. Great Staff and very safe. You are truly going thru the jungle and it was Great!! Highly recommended

There are several companies in the Monteverde area that offer zip lining, and everything I had read told me that this was the company I wanted to use. The gal out our hotel tried to convince us to go with another company (I've read since that there might be a kickback system for sending business? not sure how prevalent). I'm... More

My wife, our twelve year old son, and I were torn between whether we should do Selvatura or the Original Canopy Tour. We had read great reviews of both, and I'm sure they are both great experiences. On our second night in Santa Elena we talked with a family we had met the night before, and they had spent the... More

It was our first time every ziplining, and we couldn't have asked for a better crew and experience. We had two guides for just the two of us, and they walked us through every step on the process, helping us feel comfortable and confident. We loved the entire experience - the tarzan swing it great, and we loved that the... More

Johnny and Adolfo made this experience what it was- so memorable! We felt so safe ( he had been doing this for 11 years) it was our first time- and loved every minute of it! Kids are 9 and 12 and it was great for them. Cost was super reasonable as it took about 3 hours! They picked us up... More

Jan 24, 2014 @ 7.30am - Tour consisted of myself, 1 friend and 2 guides! Can't beat that for personal attention!

While in Costa Rica for a little over a week, my husband and I went on at least one tour per day and can honestly say this was one of our favorite tours. We were picked up at our hotel promptly and transported to the starting point of the canopy tour. After a brief set-up in our harnesses, we set... More

My friends and I loved every minute of this ziplining tour. The guides were very assiduous about safety (double and triple-checking harnesses and carabiners, ensuring everyone was clipped in on platforms, etc) and also very friendly and personable. The rope swing, rappel, and climb up the inside of a hollowed out ficus tree were all one-of-a-kind opportunities. I would absolutely... More

The original canopy tour picked us up on time at our lodge and drove us to the beginning of the trip. The facilities were very clean, and the staff was very friendly (and had great english). They also have lockers in case you need to leave anything. They fitted us for our gear and took us on a 15 minute... More
