My ex husband and I were in Monteverde 20 years ago and loved this canopy your. We wanted to share the experience with our teenage daughter. She had a blast! It has grown in size a lot but still has a down to earth feel to it. Our guide William was awesome! I have tendonitis in my thumb so had... More

We came with very high expectations after reading the fantastic reviews and we were not disappointed! We were in a group of six people and started with a safety briefing and then went on to do the Tarzan swing. Definitely do the Tarzan swing! It will get you prepped and ready for a day of fun on the zip lines.... More

I did a lot of research and read dozens and dozens of TA reviews on various zipline canopy tours and chose this one for our family (2 kids age 8 and 11). I can tell there are more "adrenaline-filled" tours out there but this was perfect for us!! A good mix of excitement and adrenaline mixed with beauty and scenery... More

The Canopy Tour zip line is very close to Monteverde and they provide transportation. It started with the "Tarzan" swing. I did not do this one. Then onto 14 zip lines and one repelling option. It did involve a bit of hiking and you are up in the mountains. The guides and the equipment were great and the price was... More

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
