We enjoyed the guided kayaking tours with Vertical Illusions. Well organized. They took care of some less skilled people in our little group. Beautiful scenery! Unforgettable day of kayaking.

We had the most amazing guides, Kallie and Miles! It was my first time zip lining and they were so patient and kind with me. The views from on top of Chimney Rock were absolutely gorgeous.

I compared Vertical Illusions with Bigfoot and found VI a much better zip line experience - more lines, better location, just a better setup overall and more eco-friendly. Highly recommend doing both Peak 1 and Peak 2 - Peak 1 is a pre-requisite to Peak...More
