The ziplining was great with beautiful views. However the van that took us to the place had no air conditioning and was extremely hot. Our guides were good but on 2 of the lines kept telling us we might not make it to the other side. That made the experience a bit tense. They should have told us of the chances of not making it and let it go instead of going on about it. We did all make it.

Loved it. The kids favorite of all excursions was this (8yr and 11yr olds) soaring above the trees. And very safe indeed. The tour guides were extremely vigilant on all occasions. Even though there were only 7 zip lines out of the 8 advertised, they had a blast! Plus we were reimbursed for the line that was out.

We were a group of 6 with a legally blind man. Our guides were wonderful! They were patient and kind. We all had a great experience.

Great zipline!! So many fun lines and great guides! A must do in Kauai! Well organized and the guides were great. Highly recommend.

Exceptional--guides were great; ziplines not too hard to reach landings
