Great Experience

Good price and great experience. We were picked up from our MV hotel, spent about 2 hrs at the zip line area. It includes a tarzan swing and climbing a hollow tree. Good deal.

This tour is in a very authentic place. You'll bike a bit on the forest to cet the plateforme, which are in the trees. No metal tower, you'll feel in a natural place. The tour includes 4 types of activities, which is a very good value for the price. The view is also astonishing, you'll get to see the Pacific... More

This was definitely my favorite experience in Costa Rica. We did the 7:30AM tour (based on another review that said that the 7:30AM tour had fewer people), and we were not disappointed. Our group consisted of my family (family of 4) + one other family (family of 6). The guys that were working were extremely friendly, safe and confident. It's... More

We took out kids to this one as it had a good rating on trip advisor. It was so much fun. The guides were so nice. We did not wait behind a hundred people at each zip. It was a bit of everything. i am scared of heights sometimes and found this to be not scary. I have been in... More

Excellent operation. Very considerate and safe. Covers Tarsan's swing, hollow tree passage, and 800 meter longest zip lining oversee the canopy and pacific coast. The guide also takes great pictures and videos using our cell phones. Definitely recommend this tour.

I have gone zip lining before, but Original Canopy Tour's cables, professional crew, and spectacular views of the canopy and the ocean exceeded all expectations! The crew was supremely well-equipped to move everyone through the course efficiently and safely. They were also great at capturing the journey on cell phone photos and videos, freeing our hands up. The course itself... More

We did it on our two day stay in Monteverde. Very nice we enjoy it , i thing it is too long - too many small short zip lines. But over all very good. I think it is not suitable for young kids under ten. They say from 6 it is ok ...

We planned 2 canopy tours while in Costa Rica. The first was in Arenal at Sky Adventures Canopy tour and our second the Original Canopy tour in Monteverde. We just completed the tour in Monteverde and all 5 of us (parents and 3 sons ages: 18,21,23) agreed this was a better experience. Sky Adventures was an adrenaline rush, while this... More

This was a highlight of my 2 week trip to Costa Rica. Despite my initial nervous feelings, the operators comp,steely made me feel at ease. Everyone on staff was professional, courteous, and accommodating. No one was forced to do any part they didn't feel comfortable with. I felt as though I had 2 personal safety assistants the entire time. I... More

There are 14 zip lines, a Tarzan swing, and a rappel down followed by a tree climb. You start with the Tarzan swing, which is a little scary but makes the first zip line seem like a piece of cake in comparison. The two staff members who went with our group were good at meeting each person's needs and looking... More
