We did the zip wire experience at Alvie estate last week. Around 1km of zip wire broken up into 13-16 separate sections (I lost count). Martin our guide was very helpful and kept us safe all the way down. Took about 2 and bit hours; we had a large group of around 15, youngest 9 oldest 45.
Great views, not too terrifying! Kids thought it was brilliant

I was zip wiring today on Alvie estate and what great fun it was. Although a small group this was great fun and the guy who took us round, Martin was great fun and lovely to chat too. We felt safe at all times and the views whilst on the wire were fabulous! Everyone has a great time and i will definitely be back!A must in the area!!

Our family of four (8, 11, 44 and 46) all loved this experience. We went with friends and had a brilliant afternoon. It was very exciting watching other people do it and going on it yourself. It is extremely nerve-wracking and scary before you start but after it is just fine. I wish it lasted even longer although the adults thought it was long enough. From start to finish it took three hours if you include the scenic stroll up to the zips and back again at the end. The scenery was absolutely magnificent. There was one line where all of a sudden the ground drops away from under you- it was pretty scary to see the ground fade away in front of your eyes. There were tumbling waterfalls, giant icicles, towering pines and the wind rushing through your hair. Do it! Do it now!

Two families (ages 6 years to 45 years) had a fantastic couple of hours zipping over a beautiful gorge! Even the slightly wary Mums had a great time. We all felt safe and secure but the experience was thrilling. Our kids described it as "the best day EVER!" . We'll be back.....

Spent a very enjoyable hour and a half zipping across a beautiful gorge with G2 Outdoor this afternoon. Mike the guide obviously loves his job (who wouldn't!) and was very relaxed and put us at ease. Think the children were jealous of the extra speed us heavier adults got up, especially on the last wire which seems to go on for ever. Great fun!!
