I gave my son this as part of a Christmas present, and decided to join in the fun. Conrad is a great guy, very safety conscious, plus obviously experienced in what he does, which is training novices like us to JUMP OFF A CLIFF. Awesome experience and highly recommended! Thanks Mate!

Me and my partner had an amazing time abseiling with Conrad. He has done great job showing us the robes and making sure everyone was safe and was having fantastic time.

Never abseiled before and was a bit scared but Conrad made us feel really safe. I did this with my daughter and we both had the time of our life. Great value for money and definitely a bit of an adrenaline rush.
