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.

As someone who doesn't like thrill, I had an amazing experience at the Original Canopy Tour. From the moment you get there, the staff makes you feel safe and well taken care of. I can't thank Rami and Luis enough for making me feel comfortable when I was out of my comfort zone. Although I was incredibly scared, I started... More

Excellent Guides, a very well layed out Canopy Tour with 14 ZIP lines, a Tarzan rope swing, rappel and climb through the tree. We always felt safe and not rushed. The guides are great. Recommend that you give one of them your camera for stills and movies. This frees you up to enjoy the experience. Don't be intimidated by the... More

An excellent experience! The three of us were the only ones in the group with two guides accompanying. The zip lines varied in length and height (the longest being 800 meters). You can also climb through a hollow tree (optional) and do a Tarzan swing (also optional). I highly recommend doing both. At no point did I feel unsafe despite... More

To start let me say I am terrified of heights... And not a little. I went with my husband and 8 year old son, neither of whom have this fear. We all had a blast! The team is very professional, and the equipment is well maintained. There is some walking to get to the first line, and a little walking... More

This was absolutely fantastic. This is a perfect zip-line tour for beginners. It is not too long (about two hours) with a tarzan swing, 7 shorter zip-lines, 7 longer ones and one vertical descent with a 20-feet climb back with a rope ladder. The staff is very friendly and professional, and it is as safe as it can be. Also,... More

This is the only canopy tour that I know of which is actually owned by the guides. In a place like Costa Rica, it's always hard to tell where your money is going . . . a lot of times companies are owned by foreigners (or ex-pats) and even though all of the work is being done by locals, most...
