“Thrilling experience: must-do in Samana”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

We signed up for this (two adults and two kids) not knowing what to expect. Three out of four of us were first timers. This really just blew our minds. Gorgeous surroundings, 12 zipline sections which descended down the mountainside, completely safe, no work at all (you don't have to worry about braking: they do it for you) : just pure thrills.

Terry (the person running it) is dynamic and a real 'local', an American who has lived there over ten years and clearly cares about the place and people. Locally prepared lunch is included, as is a culture presentation that the villagers participate in.

We had torrential rain the whole time and were soaked through, but the crew managed to get us back to our cruise ship on time despite bad roads and a flooded river which necessitated bringing out two new trucks which could handle the conditions. Lots of excitement we didn't expect, and totally worth it.

This was our third time zip lining at different countries and I must say the best so far. Bart and his crew do an awesome job. Loved the hands free. Can't wait to see all the hard work on restaurant bar and huts completed. Some day we will return to see it completed. Hats off to you Bart! You are a guy with a vision and sees it through. Best in the future.

“Yowzah! Do this thing!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Scary as hell, get your head around that, TOTALLY worth it. Once you've tried it, you'll want to go back. Get to know the owner, Bart, a complete gentleman, a visionary, to say the least, and rather a force of nature.

There's a beautiful swim beneath a cool waterfall, way way way down there at the bottom of the enormous valley. Bart will show you the unbelievably cool hotel that he is building right in the forest, afterwards. The whole experience is unforgettable.

Bring your camera!!! ..and for goodness' sakes, make sure that it has a wrist strap!!!

“Good time”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This was a fun zip line tour. The guides do the breaking for you and there are 12 zip lines so you get lots of time to zip back and forth across the valley. I went upside down quite a but and managed to touch the line with my shoes and I have the marks to prove it. My wife and I both enjoyed this, but I've done zip lines enough I don't really get much of a thrill anymore. I'm sure I'll do them again with my kids, but I'm done for a little while.

“Fantastic! A must visit when in the DR!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This was my first zip line experience and it was awesome! The staff is super fun and they have a lot of energy. Bart is very knowledgable on the area surrounding the zip line and the local culture. He is planning to complete the building of his Eco Lodge this year and I will be sure to make a visit back to Samana to spend a night in his tree fort! Thank you for a great experience!
