  • My husband and I did this tour today with guides David and Tuka. Very professional but with a wicked sense of humour. Felt very safe but still squealed uncontrollably. Views were amazing and being up ...  more »
  • Bravo to the guides! We feel safe yet I started backwards in half with Vertigo! The guides were great, the views are great. Dress with pants so time is not at the top because it is cold at the top of the trees!

  • Great activity to do in Monteverde. Pedro and David are here to accompany you and reassure you. Personally I have Vertigo and they helped me to everything goes well. This offers a different perspective of the forest is really nice.

  • Guides were fantastic and clearly loved working there! For the price you get an awesome zip-lining plus some additional surprises! There is a decent amount of walking/physical activity as a warning but definitely worth it! The tour guides even video'd our last long zip line for us which was awesome to have!
  • Awesome experience. David and Pedro were excellent guides, took the two of us in the jungle introducing to the canopy rudimental with empathy and big smiles. We loved it a lot. We've also seen a Tucano from little distance and lots of birds. Pura vida experience.
  • Wonderful to experience the very first zipline canopy tour in the world. We felt safe in the hands of our guides David and Gravin (otherwise known as 'Gravy' to some of the others on our tour...). The day was very cloudy but it was cool to zip through the clouds. None of us were brave enough to do the rappel or tree climb, but the Tarzan swing was great. Bonus if you are staying at the Monteverde Cloud Forest Lodge, the tour is onsite so you get to zip above the lodge.
  • Brilliant. Friendly, entertaining staff guide you over 14 zip wires through and over the forest. One is 800m long. Several surprise challenges including a climb up through a giant fig tree.
  • Great experience and fun. The staff was very helpful. Had a great time
