“First time Ziplining”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 via mobile

My daughter, son-in-law and I went ziplining with Canopy Tours. Scott and Spenser did an amazing job, showing us how to safely zip line in an outstanding forest, feel safe, have a great time, as well as teaching us a lot about the challenges faced by the forest and birds. We had a wonderful time, will look forward to trying it again somewhere else, and have the best memories from it. Highly recommended.

“Jesse and Spencer are amazing!!”
Reviewed 18 March 2017

We decided on the Canopy Tours at the last minute just before leaving for Rotorua and we highly recommend that you book a tour with them as well. They picked us up and dropped us off from our motel. They really made sure that our equipment was safe and well secured throughout the ziplining excursion. We really felt safe at all times even though we were terrified when we first booked the tour. They started us off with a few short ziplines and when we were ready to open our eyes and not scream our lungs out they sent us on the taller and longer ones where we could actually admire the beauty of the native forest. Both Jesse and Spencer were lots of fun to be with, they were hilarious and fantastic guides. They also forced us out of our comfort zone by making us do all sorts of silly things as we ziplined.

The best part about canopy tours is that they do lots of conservation work in the forest and at the end of the day, it made us feel like the huge sum we just spent on the excursion was worthwhile because we had contributed in a noteworthy conservation project. It's win-win for everybody!
