I can not say enough WONDERFUL things about my husband’s and my first adventure ziplineing and the WONDERFUL guides (who’s names I just can’t remember one had the coolest Kit Kat socks on….hopefully that will help with knowing who they are.)
From the time we walked into the line (I with a huge fear of heights and overall not a inch of adventure seeking in my life) they were so professional, helpful and pure fun! This was one of the best experiences in my life! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Refreshing Mountain Retreat!!! They helped me more than I can say! I will forever be grateful for putting my trust & life in their hands.
