“great guides”
Reviewed October 8, 2009

We were pleasantly surprised to be the only two people on our canopy tour. The guides were very fun - cracking jokes when I was nervous, which helped ease my nerves. They taught us a lot of interesting facts about the cloud forest, in a casual manner. The guides were experts on the equipment - I felt very safe with them guiding us. The length of the tour was perfect (2 hours), and there was a lot of diversity throughout (zip lines, ladders, rappeling, etc.). We didn't bring a camera because we were afraid we'd drop it, but we should have brought one. It would have been fine.

“Very, very fun”
Reviewed August 15, 2009

This zipline tour has it all, a helpful staff, a beautiful forest and an interesting variety of ziplines, tarzan swings, climbing and repelling. It appeared to be quite safe to my uneducated eye. Sign up, and you won't regret it (unless you have a fear of heights). Both our 8 year old and 68 year old thoroughly enjoyed it.

“Great PERSONAL attention!”
Reviewed December 28, 2008

We totally enjoyed the Original Canopy Tour's ziplines in Monteverde. They might not have been the biggest/longest/fastest ziplines, but the guides were EXCELLENT, and for those of you who actually want to learn about the rain forest, they did a GREAT job of teaching us. We also felt TOTALLY safe at all times, which is pretty nice when you're a hundred feet off the ground.
