We enjoyed it. We didn't see a ton of wildlife, but that may have been due to the time of year. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Lunch was fantastic.

Thie tram provided a very interesting and different opportunity in viewing the rainforest. One way on the ride is over the canopy, the other is about half height. Would love to do this at night but don't think it is offered. Our guide, Cel, was great on the walk eapecially. He found things in the Forrest for us to see that we never would have known were there without his being able to point them out to us. Our driver, Eric was very timely and offered lots of interesting information along the way. Really enjoyed this excursion.

We expected it to be very touristy, but it was informative. We were very impressed with our guide, Jose, and his knowledge of the ecosystem. Breathtaking views from the canopy are not to be missed! We highly recommend this trip if you are in the San Jose area.

The tram ride through the rainforest, the experienced guide, the hike including the hanging bridge and watching animals in their natural habitat made for a great day and a wonderful experience.

The pickup time turned out to be an hour later than posted, which was a minor irritation. However, the tour was very good. Our group of four loved it.

The entire trip was outstanding and enhanced by our guide on the bus and tram. However, the bus was stopped by the police on the return trip for not being properly authorized as a tourist vehicle, which caused a delay, meaning we had to deal with rush hour trafic in San Jose. The bus should have been properly licensed by the operator!

This is a "must do" when you visit central Costa Rica! The greatest views you will ever experience and very well informed guides. Lunch was very good too!

It was an awesome tour inspite of the rain. Kenneth was a very good guide.
We couldn't see animals perhaps because of the rain.

I expected from this tour much more that it appeared. We haven't seen any animals on the tram, but amount of plants was enormous around. Near the station, we saw a viper and a sloth. However, our guide was very knowledgeable and explained everything. Lunch was very tasty and people in the group were very interesting to talk with. On overall, I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars.

The tour on the aerial tram was quite nice; we got the opportunity to see the rain forest from the top of the trees and the tour guide was extremely nice informing us on every opportunity on the special characteristics of the forest and all efforts to preserve it. After the aerial tram we went for a small walk on the rain forest and a different guide (again very good) introduced us to the life of the rain forest.

There are several other activities such as canopying, zipping and hiking that one could arrange at the same location. So, my advice to people booking this trip is to take the opportunity to also do something more!

It was a great way to finish my one week tour of Costa Rica, a recap.. Even though I had done another much more demanding aerial walk above the canopy, this was another relaxing way to see a forest. We only got to see insects on the walk but the guide was knew about everything else. The lunch was typical of the buffets.
The bridge is not really a suspended one; it could be eliminated.
The only fault with this outing is the pick-up time; we were told that we would be picked up at 10:00 but the shuttle did not arrive until 10:20 and then there were still lots of people to pick up so we did arrive for another hour at our destination.

Our guide had so much knowledge about the plants and animals! He really worked hard to make the trip both interesting and entertaining. We really enjoyed the lunch, also.

Aerial tram was pretty cool. There should be more offered for cost of tour. Driver was Chris- and there should be more of a sense of safety when driving. Talking on the phone, speeding in the rain etc. is not cool.

This was not really as interesting as made to sound. In order to really see any animals at all you need to either be there very, very early or very late and the tram does not run during these hours. There is a short nature walk and that is about it. Lunch was just OK. This is really a tour for someone who in into botany. Once you learn the three levels of the rainforest, that is about it. Long drive to and from San Jose for not much.
