A bit pricey but a really fun adventure! I was very impressed by the safety and construction of the ziplines. I've never felt so comfortable in a harness. The guides were nice, funny, and knowledgeable. They have some activities to do while you wait to go on your tour, too. There is some steep hiking involved though so be prepared.

We had a great time zipping through the trees. JC and Amy were great guides and everyone felt safe. It makes for a great family outing.

Completely loved this experience! We planned this trip last minute and had great customer service over the phone. When we got there they were having a staff meeting and it seemed really interesting since they were learning a little more about wild life. We were helped out with paperwork and geared up. The staff was wonderful as they were joking... More

The views are amazing! The staff is thoughtful and engaging. I'm petrified of falling from heights such as zipline platforms or bridges (not really afraid of secure heights), but I found this experience to be very user-friendly. Good experience with friends and friendly company.

My girlfriend and I had a blast at Navitat! Christine and Kat were excellent guides, both very knowledgeable and fun. We went on a raining and foggy day and I think the fog added to the rush as you couldn't always see where you were going.

Had an excellent time with my wife and kids at Navitat Canopy Adventures. Our guide Rachel made the hikes interesting with her tidbits of history, plants and trees info. The mountain scenery was amazing and of course, the ziplines were a blast! Will definitely make another trip to Navitat soon!

We took this trip as a family of 4 with teenagers. It was a good experience since it is hard to get them to do things together. This kept them both occupied. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and our guide Rachel was awesome. The views were spectacular. We would love to do again and do the ultimate experience... More
