“Flying in the Treetops!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

You will not regret taking this zipline tour. My son had taken the zipline tour that the Wildwater company offers in Ocoee last year and had so much fun that he convinced his brother and I to zip with him in the Nantahala Gorge to try this venue.

Our rangers, Blake and Kaytee, were professional and fun to be with. They knew a lot about trees and the gorge and shared interesting facts along the way. The views of the gorge, Fontana Lake and the mountains are absolutely breathtaking.

I noticed in other posts that this was considered overpriced. I think that this tour was very reasonably priced. The other Nantahala zip tours did not offer a discount for younger kids and they charge $20 more for adults. So we saved $70 and had a wonderful time! We will be zipping again next year!

“Bucket list check off for the family!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

There are reviews stating this is overpriced, but it isn't. It was worth every penny seeing the look of adventure and joy on my children's faces as they came down each line to the landing. I felt like a child again myself! It was a very fun experience, our guides were very fun and promoted a great time. We met fantastic people in our tour group. You can't "price" memories!

“Flatlanders zipping in the Smokies”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

The Yongue and Benson families had a great time zip lining for the first time ever. Our ages range from 14 to 69. Blake and Justin, our guides, were so kind and professional. We were offered water a couple of times during our experience; it would have been great had they supplied a porta- john enroute too! The time length of the tour was just right for our group. We will definitely recommend this canopy tour adventure to other family members and friends.

“Family & Friends trip”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

The whole experience was amazing! The guides we had were Raven, Jay, and Justin (Elroy). We had a large group and they accommodated us great! They livened up the experience and made traveling through the mountains an unforgettable event.
