We have ziplined several times while traveling to remote locations. This zipline company offers zipping closer to home for us. We have been on two trips with this company now. It was so good the first time, we came back and brought other friends. The company offers 11 zips, 3 rappels and 1 skybridge. Each zip is pretty long and pretty fast. Definitely much longer and faster than any others that we have done on any of our trips. It currently offers the longest and fastest zips in the country on a well designed course. So, pretty exciting stuff. It does take some time to get through the entire course but it is well worth it. You do get your money's worth. Our guides both times we've been were good but on our most recent trip MK and Christopher were excellent. They are fun and make the course exciting while offering continued support and encouragement for the more timid on the trip. They provided a great deal of interesting information about the region, flora and fauna and they took excellent photos and videos during the trip. Our group the first time was 10 people which was a bit too much but we had only 7 this time which worked much better with less time wasted waiting on people. I'd highly recommend doing this to anyone.

Trying to come up with something exciting & new for spring break for two 12 yr old boys this year. Searched and found The Gorge Zipline - liked the fact that it was the fastest & longest decent zip line in the country; that made it even more likely to be a hit. We made a special trip to Saluda to experience zipping the gorge and WOW~ HUGE hit! Not only was the zipping spectacular, fun, exciting, fast, scary (but safe), great guides, perfect views and weather...it was a 3.5hour adventure! We also fell in love with the quaint town of Saluda. Great food, friendly people, peaceful, and full of fresh mountain air. Recommend The Gorge Zipline Canopy tour for a fun adventure!

Not only is this zip line experience a lot of fun (and scary in a good way!), the staff and facility also make it really memorable. It is so well orchestrated and they make the whole experience (including the post ride beer!) a truly great one. Thank you all and we will see you again!

Absolutely fantastic. The zip lining was very safe, but also extremely exciting. We had a clear sunny day with mild temperatures in the low 70's. Our group size was 8 of varying ages. What made the experience unforgettable were our guides, M.K. and Patrick. They were very knowledgeable about the area horticulture, flora and fauna and highly competent creating a safe experience without being overbearing. AND, they were absolutely fun. They kept us laughing and helped us enjoy the zip line experience to the max. If traveling to Asheville, NC do not bother with any other zip line excursion. Choose "The Gorge Zipline Canopy Tour" !!!

This was an amazing experience for my first time zip lining. I went with 2 other family members (who have previous experience). We had an absolute blast. The guides were very professional yet fun and personable. All of the views were fantastic. We will be promoting this company and will visit again in the near future!!
