“Exhilerating flying through the trees!”
Reviewed 11 November 2015

The guides are really great and they also explain the company's stances on sustainability. The experience itself was amazing and perfectly safe to even zip upside down!

“Fun and great guides”
Reviewed 10 November 2015 via mobile

Had Connor and Naomi for guides and they were great. Fun and cracked a lot of jokes. The zip trek were fun and the view is amazing! Trust fall was definitely the best way to exit the tree houses

A great adventure . Exhilarating, and about idyl view thrown in. High safety standards so I wasn't worried at all . Our guides Ashleigh and Rhys (sorry if that's not the spelling) were great. Highly recommended.

“Combo of nature and flight”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 via mobile

Impressed with the way the company has integrated being eco-friendly and preserving the trees to which the rigs are attached.
We did the 6 wire and found that we could relax compared to other zipline experiences as all our attachments were taken care of by guides who also stopped the rider well short of the landing platform. Consequently we could practise going backwards and upside down.
Some education about the environment was added along the way regarding sustainability.
One of the clients was fearful of heights but was given good encouragement and succeeded doing all line.
The last line is the steepest, longest and fastest and naturally the most exhilarating.
Thanks to our guides Welshie and a young girl who I've unfortunately forgotten her name as I'm writing this review 2 weeks on. They were great.
