“Flying High”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Our youngest daughter is here to celebrate her birthday and we gave her a surprise zipline package. Of course, I had to go along. She had done zipline before and we have taken other family members to the two locations in Kohala, but this new site in Kona is great. They have done a wonderful job of presenting a beautiful area in the best light. Kyle and Nadine were great and Nathan was a real help and found we know many of the same people.
Early morning, 8:00 was a good time.

“Great Day on ATV's and Zip Lines”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Had a amazing time on both the ATV tour and the Zip Lines with this group of guides! Nadine, Aho, Kyle and Jess are very friendly, know what their both doing and talking about and keep the experience personal and fun.

Would highly recommend to anyone looking to see the Mountain from 2 very distinct and unique angles. Great job by all!!

“Thank You!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I took the zipline tour with my 12 year-old on Tues 30th July and had a great time. The scenery was wonderful and ziplines safe and fun. But the best part was the guides: friendly, professional and very helpful. Recommended!

“Safe, fun and friendly”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

From customer service, to safety, to downright friendliness, these guys have it all. We booked a last minute reservation - their website said there were none available but we called in as they suggested, and they were able to find us a time slot that day. From the moment we were greeted by our guides, Nathan and Kyle, and driver Ehu, we knew we were in for a great time. They were fun and friendly, and they engaged us in conversation for the entire trip, filling us with knowledge about the places we were in and the things we were seeing. Once at Halekea (the "White House" which is the starting point for the zip line), they filled my safety-conscious family with a great deal of confidence. They were extermely conscientious and took great attention to detail with the gear and lines, all the while keeping the nervous ones calm with their good humour. The zip-lines themselves were so much fun, and the Ohi'a forest we were in was beautiful! Nathan and Kyle encouraged us to try fun things while zipping - swinging, flailing our arms, or going "dead-man", and even giving us a good-natured bounce to the line to add to the fun - but NEVER in a way that made anyone feel uncomforable - they new each persons limits and boundaries and respected them greatly. All in all, this family of four had a super fun time and are looking forward to coming back some day to do it again.

“Wonderful family experience with friendly and fun staff”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We really enjoyed our experience with Jodee and Ola on June 27. It was a safe fun activity that enthused our teenage boys and created some great family memories. From the van ride to the zipline, the staff were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and we would highly recommend Kona Eco Adventures to our friends and family!
