Awesome fun, highly recommended. We did the 7am tour with just 3 people in total so was fast and great fun, no waiting around! The 10am tour had a lot more (36) lined up so well worth getting up early. Beautiful views and friendly guides. The last 2 ziplines are amazing

This was amazing..... the staff are friendly and helpful and the area is stunning. There is allot of wildlife including agouti's and coati's. The zip lines were great fun, and there are about 20 in total, the longest being 800m. well worth the $45.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with this company. Our guides were Johnny, Jose and Andre and they did a great job. There were 6 customers and 3 guides. They kept things moving along and accommodated each person on an individual basis. We had ziplined a few other times but not so many lines and the "tarzan" swing and climbing up... More

The tour is organized to be a step-by-step introduction to zip-lining, and the guides are just brilliant - making us all laugh and generally very kind with those among us who were first-time zip-liners. I strongly recommend the Original Canopy Tour! It was great!

An incredible way to spend a couple of hours. You start by taking a 5-10 minute walk to the first activity which is a big swing. After that you are taken to the first zip line which is short and reasonably low. The majority of the zip lines interconnect so you don't have to spend much time walking. They get... More

When you find yourself in a rain forest you should take the time to do at least one of if not all of the canopy activities. You are in one of the most biodiverse placed on the planet so unless you have live in a rain forest you might wNt to slow down and pay attention. I mean really slow... More

If you like a complete adrenalin rush from a Tarzan swing to rappelling down the rain forest and climbing back up through an enormous strangle fig tree while completing 14 amazing zipline stages way, way up in the canopy, then you'll like this place!! It was a blast!!

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a thrill and is obviously not afraid of heights! It's got great views, fun thrills and a great pay off if you dare to try it. The staff is very friendly and safety conscious.

We really liked it But, I wouldn't recommend getting the dvd they offer you. It is not worth the money at all. Get someone to take your picture. The Zip-lining cost enough.

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
