Absolutely loved our experience at Margam Go Ape and already looking forward to returning to do it again!!! All members of staff were friendly and helpful and explained everything clearly. Hoping to win the £100 Go ape vouchers so that we can return and bring our children with us (slightly too expensive for all 8 of our family to do it together) I have already recommended Go ape to my friends and 6 of them have already booked to do it!! Great staff, great experience!!

I booked for two people on line and then added another via telephone, excellent customer service. As a mum and the oldest in our group I have to admit I was a little out of my comfort zone at first especially as I don't like heights. After the safety briefing we started the course, just climbing the rope ladder made me tremble, after doing the zip wire I began to feel like Tarzan and actually started to enjoy GO APE! By the end of it I was so proud at finishing it all. I will definitely be coming back with my tribe and friends.

Staff were so welcoming !! Was such a great afternoon out, felt safe at all times around the course. Favourite bit was the tarzan swings. Definitely want to visit some of the other courses around the country.
Rated 5 Bananas Halima - Tree Top Adventure, on 12 September 2014
Went with a group of friends for my 19th birthday, it was amazing! We all really enjoyed it and was definitely worth the money. The instructors, Nigel and Christian, were very helpful and friendly. We managed to get around the course in about 2 hours as our group was very small (only 8). Thank you for a wonderful Tree Top Adventure Experience!
