Upon arrival at the cabin my friend and I received the most warm welcome I have ever had so far. Mary was smiling and so happy. Just a lovely start of a fantastic adventure. Everyone was super friendly and I would like to thank our instructor Morgan! He was super nice and even after the brief was finished he was always around to support us from the ground! We had an amazing time! Thank you Go Ape Margam Park! You made our day!

The instructors were really friendly and helpful. The course was both challenging and enjoyable. The weather was atrocious but we cant blame you guys for that. Myself and my Girlfriend finished the course and felt like a modern day Tarzan and Jane!!! Great day out.
Rated 5 Bananas Steven - Tree Top Adventure, on 17 May 2016
Great experience. Really enjoyed the zip lines and tarzan swings. Only negative was the expensive parking at Margam Park which cost £4.50.
Rated 5 Bananas Hannah - Tree Top Adventure, on 16 May 2016
The safety briefing was very thorough and Vicky delivered it well. The actual treetops adventure was amazing, it was just scary enough but I was able to complete the whole course. The most challenging part was the large Tarzan jump.. it took me a while to build up the courage to step off the ledge, even though I knew I was safely harnessed in, it was very difficult. There was an easier alternative route but I'm so glad I made myself do it. The one issue I would point out is that, on the website, it states car parking is between £3.50-£4.50. When we arrived at Margam Park, they charged £4.90. I feel this is more to do with Margam Park not communicating the change in price to GoApe rather than a problem with GoApe themselves but thought it was worth a mention.
