I've completed the Valley Jump Tour at Berkshire East on four occasions and can't wait for #5. The tour guides are knowledgeable and friendly and very supportive of those who might be a bit nervous. It is a real adrenaline rush flying above the treetops. I've done this tour in October and the colors are spectacular. If you are even... More

This place is very nice on a fall day. Bring warm clothes because the top of the mountain get cold quick. The guides were fun and it's safe. Can't wait to go back

We booked our zip lining trip about a month in advance because I heard it sells out during peak foliage season. It was so worth it!! We did the Valley Jump tour and it was the best. The last zip line was a half mile long and you go super fast over the tree tops. It was amazing. Our guides... More

My boyfriend took me here as a surprise for my 25th birthday. We did the Mountain Top tour. It's a pretty easy drive out here from the Worcester area. I will preface this review by saying I'm not an incredibly adventurous person, and I'm a little afraid of heights. Our guides made me feel so comfortable, I had an amazing... More

We just went on the Valley Jump tour 3 days ago, and the weather and the color of the trees were perfect! This was our third zip at Berkshire East, but the first time we did the Valley Jump. Zack and Bob were our guides and they were a lot of fun. We always felt safe, with them explaining everything... More

So, the weather forecast let us down - it wasn't sunny as predicted, but cold and rainy. In October and in New England that's not a good thing. We came down the mountain cold, wet, freezing fingers, and a HUGE smile on our faces. Not sure what John and Bernard, our guides, did but they they managed to keep us... More

My husband and I went with another couple for a quick overnight getaway, based on trying out zip lining for the first time. Two of us had some prior experience with a different style of zip line. The outing was a great success... zipping over the beautiful scenery was well worth the time it took to drive to the Berkshires.... More

We booked this for a stop on our road trip. It was really fun and different to other activities we have done. I have a terrible fear of heights and managed to have fun. Felt safe for the whole time. Bob and Dylan were really helpful, calming, knowledgeable and great fun

I live in Florida and me and my husband came up to see the foliage. We decided to go ziplining with my brother and his Husband. They were a little nervous to go but we went anyways thinking would be a great experience. That it was! The staff was very professional and made you feel safe at all times. Our... More
