Being an older bunch, our group of six was slightly intimidated at the start. The guides got us relaxed and we made it through the thrilling ride. They had high safety standards and made it an experience to remember, sailing through the forest with great scenes around and below us. We celebrated with cold drinks when finished.

We really recommend coming to the original canopy tour! The guides were very professional and catered to our every need. We came with our two young girls ages 6 and 8 and the girls were tied to an instructor the whole time having a wonderful time very relaxed and fun atmosphere even with the rain coming down very hard.

One of the very best highlights of our vacation. The guides were superb at explaining every challenge from the Tarzan swing building up to the last 800m and 500m zip lines. They also had a wonderful sense of humour which helped to relax anybody with any fear they may have had and were superb across all ages - my husband... More

Not only the location of this tour is truly amazing but also the quality of customer service received from Keiver and David (Our Guides) was superb. The tour itself is the perfect combination of adrenaline and sightseeing with minimum physical effort. the design of the curse -14 cables- ease and help the participants to transition between the short and long...

Definitely recommend, there was a good balance of safety focus and having fun. The lines started as shorter and slower building up to longer and faster with a couple of fantastic rides of 800m and 500m at the end with views out to the Pacific Ocean. The guides were very down to earth and explained what we needed to do... More

My ex husband and I were in Monteverde 20 years ago and loved this canopy your. We wanted to share the experience with our teenage daughter. She had a blast! It has grown in size a lot but still has a down to earth feel to it. Our guide William was awesome! I have tendonitis in my thumb so had... More

We came with very high expectations after reading the fantastic reviews and we were not disappointed! We were in a group of six people and started with a safety briefing and then went on to do the Tarzan swing. Definitely do the Tarzan swing! It will get you prepped and ready for a day of fun on the zip lines.... More

I did a lot of research and read dozens and dozens of TA reviews on various zipline canopy tours and chose this one for our family (2 kids age 8 and 11). I can tell there are more "adrenaline-filled" tours out there but this was perfect for us!! A good mix of excitement and adrenaline mixed with beauty and scenery... More

The Canopy Tour zip line is very close to Monteverde and they provide transportation. It started with the "Tarzan" swing. I did not do this one. Then onto 14 zip lines and one repelling option. It did involve a bit of hiking and you are up in the mountains. The guides and the equipment were great and the price was... More
