Great for an Anniversary Celebration! - July 9, 2013

We loved our tour! My husband and I came for our first year wedding anniversary and it was such a great way to celebrate! We had never ziplined before and I think this was the perfect first time. James and Emma made us feel very safe, they explained everything really well and helped us laugh off the nerves. They were funny and fun to be with along the way. James is super knowledgeable about the Redwoods and it was fascinating learning stuff along the way. Afterwards on our drive through the redwoods we kept using the terms he taught us. Emma was the perfect person to help get us strapped in and coax us to leave the platform. She told us she is in nursing school and that makes total sense, she's so calm and reassuring. I really loved that there were several zips because it takes time to get a little more comfortable and I didn't want it to be over before I had a chance to enjoy it. When we planned the trip we saw that some places charged upwards of $60 for only one zip. $99 for several zips, plus a spiral staircase in a tree, plus a couple of foot bridges, plus all the safety aspects and the demonstration is well worth it, definitely well priced! We had an amazing time and cannot wait to do it again! Thanks!
