This place was amazing and I can't imagine a more fun (or safe) place to do some serious ziplining. Great guides (Ezra & Adam). They made it fun and were very experienced and knowledgeable. Best ziplining experience ever. Doesn't hurt that it was in Hawaii!

Not only fun, also interesting and educational thanks to personable, knowledgeable guides,TATA and BRENNA.

Tim and Ezra were amazing guides. They made it fun for all of us. I was a little intimidated by the wooden bridges but they were a piece of cake. Had an amazing time. Thank you for the great experience!

This tour was so fun but I think it was mostly because of our seriously awesome tour guides. Tatas and the cool girl who's parents were coming to town were probably some of the best tour guides I've ever had (and I work in the hospitality industry and travel a lot). They made the tour so fun and were constantly entertaining/ making us laugh throughout the entire tour. They are some seriously cool people and this company is lucky to have them!! Thanks guys! Can't wait to zip again soon.
