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 Karen - Tree Top Junior, on 23 July 2014
Turned up and was not expecting to do the course right then, thought because we had not booked. Turned out we could, my son and daughter went round the junior trail and loved it. Well organised and really friendly staff.
Rated 5 Bananas Jennifer - Tree Top Adventure, on 21 July 2014
I took a group of students (17 - 24 year olds) to Moors Valley Tree Top Adventure on Tuesday July 1st. We were welcomed so warmly and the safety talk and demonstration was excellent. Quite a few of us were nervous (I was the worst). Just to start the the climb up nearly had me in tears but I was encouraged by Alice, our guide, to carry on as I could do it. One other student who had a fear of heights was in front of me so I had to try to be brave. Lo and behold, though I felt I was going to die, i enjoyed it! And the whole experience was confidence-giving to me and to my students. We loved it. Then we had a super bbq provided by yourselves. this was well-cooked and really well set out in the 'forest shelter'. They even provided real glasses to drink from, not plastic. The food was truly excellent. And the staff were so nice. I cannot rate this experience highly enough! Many thanks.

Trainers were excellent, Segway forest was excellent. We have been on a Segway experience before, but not with yourselves, through Tesco vouchers at a place in Cannock. We will only do Segway through yourselves now as previous experience is not a patch on what you offer. It was all excellent and the trainers were great, especially with my two teenagers who loved it. THANK YOU
Rated 5 Bananas Ruth - Tree Top Adventure, on 16 July 2014
Booked this tree top adventure for my son-in-laws belated birthday present and the whole family did it, I was the person taking the photos, great fun and a lot of laughing especially getting out of the barrel. This is the 2nd adventure, the 1st one was last summer for another son-in-law and 5year old, a lot of concentration needed on that one for a small person but still a great time was had by all.
Rated 5 Bananas Andrew - Forest Segway, on 16 July 2014
The whole experience was awesome, it was so different to anything we've experienced before, it was so enjoyable from start to finish, we had so much fun and are still grinning ear to ear!
