“Zippin in Princeville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2008

We chose the Zip N Dip option. Great fun day of activity. Guides were friendly and upbeat. Everybody in our group had a great time. So much fun. Would highly recommend it. If getting the most amount of time zipping is your desire, these are the guys.

“Good Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2008

Just got back from Kauai where we took the Princeville ranch adventures zip line tour. The tour starts at the home base location where the guides fit you with a climbing harness, a lite helmet and give you some basic instruction. Next you pile into an four wheel drive truck for a short ride out to the zip line area. After a short walk the zip lining begins. Ronda our lead guide was all about safety but not to the point of distraction from the adventure. For those guest who where a bit intimidated (about half of the 10) the guides were very encouraging and at no time was anyone forced into zipping.
I would recommend this zip line adventure to any one in the Princeville area. It was fun, safe and the guides where friendly and helpful. The price was 125.00 person plus tip if you chose to leave one. I did because I enjoyed the experience. You will need a reservation.

“Fun, but expensive fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2008

The Zip n Dip was fun and exciting but it was pretty expensive! The entire "dip" part was pretty unnecessary and the meal they feed you leaves much to be desired. The zip lining if a lot of fun. If we could have done just the zip line and left out the rest of it I would have enjoyed it a lot more. It's also an expensive activity and I don't think it completely lives up to the price tag...

“Zip & Dip”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2007

This activity rocked. The guides were friendly and helpful. The views were amazing. The zip-lining was much easier than I imagined. It was simply the best adrenaline rush you can buy while still feeling completely safe in the process.

My complaint is that after you enjoy the activity the office staff is wholly unreponsive to your phone calls. My wife left her swimsuit in the office's changing room and the multiple voice mails that we left inquiring about how to get it back went unreturned. After spending almost $300 at an establishment you would think they would have the decency to return a phone call.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2007

We did the Zip and Dip Zipline with Princeville Ranch Adventures and it was a wonderful experience. The views are spectacular and the ziplining was awesome. It was also much easier then I expected. (I'm 53 with bad knees and had no problems). They guides were great (Derek and Ralph). They made sure everyone was safe and had an easy time ziplining. they were also very nice and a lot of fun. The swimming and lunch probably aren't worth it and the Zip Express is probably a better deal. But I would encourage everyone to try zip lining and especially with this organization.
