“Exciting, fun and no pressure kind of tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

There are many of these zipline tours popping up all around Hawaii. We had found this one on line and reserved it. It is very easy to find and located on a huge 2400 acre natural macadamia nut farm. Very beautiful setting. Enormous tree's and nicely put together. It is not as long or big as some of the others but the price was very good for what we got. Our tour guides were highly enthusiastic (Jay & Ash) and were happy to have us which is a huge part of making the business a success. Tour is very safe. I even posted a video of it on my youtube site at youtube/swormtours. It was a good time.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I am afraid of heights, but once we did the first couple of zips was fine. Brandon and Adam were really funny and told us about local life. Would ask for them and plan to go back next time on the Big Island. It was the highlite of our time in Hawaii. Thanks, Jerry

“The staff are very friendly and entertaining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

This was the first activity of our trip. The zips were very fun. Total of 8 zip lines and 1 suspension bridge. You are in a group of approximately 10 individuals and its a great experience to hick and get to know your other companions. The best part about this company is they hook you up and stop you. Some companies do not do this. Because they do stop you, you are able to have your hands free and take pictures. You feel very safe! :) Great experience would definitely go again.

“Flippin' Awesome!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We just got home from our zip line adventure and I thought I would go on right away and post about our amazing experience. This was out first time ziplining, and I would recommend it to everyone! I was a bit nervous at the start it seems so unnatural to be hanging from a rope high above the tree canopy, but after the first couple of zips you get used it it and the rest of the time is really exciting. Our guides today were Renee and Shane, both were great. Renee was very knowledgable about the plant life, and even picked fresh fruits for us to try. Shane was really funny, and was really encouraging when your nerves get the better of you. By the end of the trip some in our group had let go of all fear and were spinning and leaning back no hands! The who,e experience was excellent. The guides are really great about safety, always checking your gear to make sure it's safe and hooking you in and making sure it's all good to go. The stopping was the best! It's no worries stopping as the guides stop you for you. You don't have to even think about it just know they are there at the end to bring you in safely. Shane and Renee were awesome and I found out later, when you come back you can request the guides you want to go with. I will remember that cause I am for sure coming back... They told us by the end of next year they have four more zips being added to this course, which will be 12 in total! I can't wait for that. Shane and Renee thank you for an amazing experience, and we will see you again!

“Fun time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Just did the zips last week. It was fun and the staff was great. Be aware it does take about 3.5 hours if you are part of a full tour. Good time!
