Hope and Billy were great guides. Very professional and funny and had extensive knowledge about the nature surrounding us as well. I will definitely come back next time I'm in the area.

The tour is great for old and young. Joel and Hope were super safety oriented while still keeping the mood great and the experience fun. Me and my wife had a great time and the quarter mile zip line was simply amazing.

Great Trip. If you are looking for adventure, this is your place. Staff was wonderful and my 3 daughters loved the ziplines.

Unique experience on the zip lines. Ages in our group were from 8 to 60. Everyone did great and had an excellent time. The two guides were amazing and made you feel comfortable from the start.
