  • I'm a little conflicted on Gibbon Experience. On one hand, the ziplining experience is amazing, guides are incredibly fun and nice. They love their job. They have the perfect combination of profession...  more »
  • We went for the waterfall tour, 3 days and 2 nights. The ziplining was amazing, our guide Vong was the best and staying in the tree housese was fantastic! If you have a chance, go!  more »
  • We do not regret to have chosen the express: enabled us to do a lot of zip lines (about 20 that some of more than 500 meters) above the canopy, which is a unique experience. We had the chance to be in the small group (8 people of various ages) and not in the Group of a dozen English-speaking youth who were preparing their beer even before and we have heard from the other House late at night. The tree house was very nice and offered great views. The lunch was very limited (a sandwich the first day and a plate of rice with a bit of cabbage on the second day). On the other hand, dinner and breakfast in the House were very good. We were a little disappointed not to see any animal other than wasps near the House. The night we just heard rats in the House and in the morning, crickets. The continued presence of noisy groups may explain this absence of animal presence other than rats. The ziplines experience however warrants 5 stars and the asking price. It is imperative to book given their success!
