I'm not very good with heights. The tour started off with a Tarzan style rope swing, but there was no pressure to do this if you didn't want to. We then moved onto the zip lines. Now this was amazing, the only bit I struggled with was the waiting on the platforms high up in the trees but that was... More

We stayed at Monte Verde so this was convenient for us, but I'm sure there are ways for people to get a ride / bus up there. There were tons of surprises along the way: the Tarzanning, Repelling and seeing animals were a nice touch to our zip lining adventure. The employees were so friendly and FUN too. The longest...

Wish I could give them 6 stars! This zip line tour was absolutely fantastic. Started with their new Tarzan swing that starts a couple stories up and swings you out over the jungle - it was like a roller coaster on that first drop! Then went through 6 zip lines, with just a couple man-made platforms and the rest built... More

We did this tour as well as Sky trek/tram in Monteverde and both were great. Here it was nice to have the chance to try the Tarzan swing plus the rappel and climbing the hollow tree. The ziplines were also a lot of fun. You have to brake manually here whereas Sky Trek has automatic braking, but although I was... More

There are so many zip lining companies available in Monteverde that it can be very hard to choose which one to do. I would recommend the Original Canopy Tour to anyone who wants to experience a bit of thrill, the treetop canopies 5 stories up, and who wants to save some (or a lot) of money. We had done the...

The guides were very professional. They took extra care with our 6yr old to make sure she had a good time. They did several tandems with her on the longer and faster lines since you have to use your hand to brake. The Tarzan swing was fun and the tree climb was a little scary but worth the effort. You...

Had a great experience. Rustic and fun. Less touristy. Always felt safe and views were spectacular. 14 lines plus a Tarzan swing and repelling opportunity. I liked that the first couple lines were shorter so you could get the hang of it. Requires some hiking and climbing. The negatives were that the helmets were smelly and I felt a bit... More
