Danny Lyons runs a fun, exciting, informative, rigorous, highly professional and polished training course that I would recommend to anyone interested in exploring our planet's largest beings. The Canopy Climbers training course exceeded my expectations in every way!

My partner and I received a gift certificate to Canopy Climbers and really enjoyed the experience. Danny is very friendly and knowledgeable and we had a lot of fun climbing with him. Do it, you won't regret it.

Out of the ordinary outside activity for groups and singles. This is a whole learning experience; touches upon the uses of climbing, the importance of environmental respect, and the mental, physical and spiritual health of the climbers. A MUST TRY!!
