Take a look at what some of our tribe have said about their time in the forest. It’s always good to hear it straight from the Gorilla’s mouth (…and we’re proud to say it’s totally unedited!) And why not have a peek at what people are saying about us on Trip Advisor.

Rated 5 Bananas Allison - Tree Top Adventure, on 22 April 2014
The course was great and we had a great day however, when I booked I used the EAST14 discount code for a 10% discount and I see from my bank statement that the discount was not applied. The "do you have a discount code" reminder that appears while you are booking is not prominent enough, however I did spot it and definitely added the code in. So I was disappointed I didn't get my discount, especially as I have come to GoApe so many times and brought people with me each time.
Rated 5 Bananas Thomas - Tree Top Adventure, on 8 April 2014
Overall a great experience and something I would recommend to all. There is a great range of difficulty levels however saftey is paramount so the only thing you will need to overcome is your own fears. Great staff on hand with friendly smile try it out.

Safety brief was good and the continued guidance around the course was great- especially for someone who was nervous like myself.
Rated 5 Bananas Liv - , on 31 March 2014
Great mother and daughter fun on Mothers day - great setting, good briefing and felt supported and looked after throughout! We were very impressed with the instructor who learned all the names within the group prior to setting off and made it a truly personable experience!
