Easier than it looks, and heaps of fun. Recommend purchasing the double trip package so you can enjoy the view the second time around.

Fantastic surroundings, breathtaking, great hosts, very personal experience. Zip lining itself was brilliant! Moving through the canopy at whatever pace you like, so much to see. No need to be experienced. Would highly recommend this activity.

Great fun, well worth the money, must do experience. Excellent view from rainforest top of bats, creeks, palm trees. Very informative hosts- interesting to discover which plants were edible and which to stay away from. Highly Reccomend

It didn’t seem necessary to me, but you can call them if you’re unsure. They are very kind to speak with.
