“Wonderful Views and Well Constructed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Not only no waiting lines when I went, I was the only one on the last three zip lines. Nice, competent young staff. The free ride up from the hotel is worth taking even if you are not going on the zip lines. The first eight runs are fairly short, fun, great tree- top views. the last three runs certainly worth the extra money, for the adrenalin factor. Both the climbs to the platforms and the much longer zip lines very invigorating. While this is not a phenomenal excursion, certainly worth the coast and just minutes form Parque Central.

“What a rush!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

From the moment we were picked up from our hotel, we had such an awesome experience! Alex connected to our group immediately and put everyone at ease and built excitement for our adventure! I felt very safe with high quality equipment and double lines, and had such a great time with my group and with the guide- It was absolutely exhilarating! I would go again and again and recommend this tour to everyone!!!

“Antigua, Guatemala”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

No one in our group had zip lined before so our collective anxiety was high however our guides were outstanding, the safety features/ behaviors appropriate, quality personal safety equipment, double lines on all sections. We quickly relaxed and enjoyed the 7 segments zigzagging through the forest and through the plantation. The guides were all excellent, engaging, fun and totally fluent in English which is important when you need to understand safety issues. I highly recommend the canopy tour. Further more Antigua is a Unesco world heritage city and has recently just been nominated as one of worlds top retirement places as well on CNN.
A wonderful place for culture, history, handicrafts and great food. I highly recommend Guatemala as a destination for the huge variety in activities and cultural events.

“Really, really fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Whether you have zip lined before or not, the Anigua Canopy Tours are great. The guides are a lot of fun, make it easy for beginners and they have 2 zip lines of incredible length and height that are truly special. They are also very accommodating for larger groups and take the time to make sure everything goes as planned.

“Great for just about any age”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

My 8 year old son and I just went on the Forest Express tour. We had a great, safe time. The guides were great, the equipment was top-end, and the overall experience was hugely positive.
