"It was a wonderful experience! The guides were friendly, encouraging and confident. We were traveling with my family of six. Most of us did not have any experience ziplining. Our children are the ages of 22, 20, 17, and 12. It is hard sometimes to find an activity that we all can enjoy together and this was perfect. Ian and Leslie were very encouraging guides and related well to all of us. The course was amazing!"
"My experience was outstanding! My guides were knowledgeable, personable, attentive and fun! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who is interested in ziplining. "
"It was the first time zIplining for my husband and I. And everything went perfectly from the booking to the trip back. Our guides, Steve & Gunner, were knowledgeable, friendly and funny! I definitely would recommend Cloud 9 Living & Big Pine Zip Line to friends. Thank you for making everything go so smoothly."
