We did it is twice with kids, seven and thirteen years old, and every one of us had a blast. The seven year old were able to do two of the zip lines by themselves, and other three zip lines they had to do as tandem with the instructor.
All the zip lines were between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains and the more advanced zipline package start up in the mountains and ends essentially in the Whistler village, so you drive up by van, use the zip lines, and then just walk back into Ziptreck Ecotours office.
The staff was super nice, made it even more fun, and educated us along the way.

Thanks to Dan, Eric and Stuart for a great time. Very skilled, knowledgeable, safety conscious and a heck of a lot of fun. The trip was very easy to book online. All of the staff worked hard to make everyone feel at ease. Nice nature talk on the ride up and along the way. Everyone made sure we were all having a good time, a safe time, and that we were all at ease. We enjoyed the Eagle Tour, with its 5 lines and exhilarating rides and views. Would definitely bring family of all ages, any time for a great time. There were 7 in our group which was a good size as there is some waiting around on the platforms etc. Took about 3 hrs overall. The views, the nature, the rides, the fun...everything well done.

This is the second time I've done the tour and I had a great time again. Tour guides were super nice and they knew their stuff (I've been telling my friends random tidbits I learned on the tour every now and then). They were also very helpful in making the best experience for us on the ziplines, especially when zipping across upside down! Would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a good adrenaline rush and being in nature.

We did the Ziplining on our last day at Whistler. Though we had never ziplined before, we chose to do the Eagle Tour, as it seemed more worthwhile based on previously read reviews. We had two great guides. Everything was very professional and felt safe the entire time. All I have to say despite being nervous of heights, it was so much fun and exhilarating experience! I cannot wait to try it again in the future. My only complaint is that it went by so fast!

I highly recommend doing this while in Whistler. I am not always great with heights, but decided I wanted to do it anyway. I was unsure whether to do the bear tour or the eagle tour, in the end I did the eagle tour, and absolutely loved it! The rest of my group enjoyed it too. The zip lines were so much fun, I never felt unsafe at any point in the tour, and the tour guides were really friendly and funny (one guy, Bobby, had us laughing pretty much all tour - great job Bobby!). I would definitely do this again. If I had my time again, though, I would do the mammoth tour - the eagle tour was so much fun that it went too quickly! If you are looking for some fun and have a sense of adventure, I highly recommend giving this a go.
