  • We went with my wife, my son who is 9 years old and a nephew, adult. We passed them super, always with great emotion. We had reservation at 11 AM. We were given a safety talk and then in an open car took us where the canopy starts. The happiest person, my son. The less happy... my lady, but after a while it is relaxed. We were just us four, more two girls who helped us. Also for awhile we were accompanied by photographer, since I hired the entire package. Unfortunately the only thing not perfect, were the photos. Few and bad. But the videos, more than acceptable. Excellent security. Gives peace of mind knowing that besides the cord by which one slips, there is a safety. Very carefully with your fingers. Explained many times and very clear hand that goes to the cable, must go little further back of the head. I had a small scare, because once I came and almost caught me fingers pulley. It saved my glove. Very exciting, very entertaining and at the end, took us back to their offices, where he gave us a simple sandwich and a cup of coffee or a juice. It was welcome.

  • This activity was spoilt by the leader (Luyolo) he was just an egotistical noisy little man. He took forever to do anything, he would make us wait and force us to listen to his stupid jokes and commen...  more »

  • We really enjoyed this and the guides were great. I would highly recommend doing it if you can handle heights and speed. It is very safe with a number of precautions taken. You get some very scenic looks over the canopy while waiting for others. The meal is so so but it was more of just an add on thing. Make sure and ask questions as the guides are knowledgable.
  • We three friends decided to do this Canopy tour. It is not very heart thumping activity but decent enough. The good part is the location in which it has been built. The service, the guides are helpful. There are total 10 small canopy tours crossing one tree to another. We also paid extra for Photo and Video, but disappointed with the quality of the same. Please ensure to take good photo of the visitors. After spending some time here, again felt that there were many other things to do as well. Overall a decent experience.
  • We arrived at 4pm on a winters afternoon in beautiful sunshine. Had the whole place to ourselves. Guides were the sweetest people. And the longest zip lines were high enough for an adrenaline rush but also felt safe. Recommend
  • Must Do Adventure!! The tour guides were very knowledgeable and funny. It was very safe and amazing experience. Good way to get your adrenaline going. Afterwards they served you a snack which was more like a lunch. Beautiful tour! My 65 year old aunt with a newly replaced hip was able to participate and enjoy.
  • Amazing activity! Our guide (sibu) was amazing, and the whole tour was very awesome. We even made new friends in the group thanks to the guide's enthusiastic approach. Very recommended!.
