13Do tours run in inclement weather?
Our tours do run in the rain. Canopy Tours got their start in the rain forests of South America where it rains almost every day. Wolfe Creek Preserve is absolutely beautiful during the rain and many of our repeat guests have stated that they prefer to zip in the rain! We only close for lightning or at the discretion of management. If management feels that the weather poses a safety risk, then we will close. Otherwise, we run our tours as scheduled. We do not offer cancellations or refunds unless management closes the course. We have a limited capacity and advance reservations are required. Don't worry about getting wet. You might find that you have more fun than you ever thought possible in the rain!
14What is your cancellation policy?
We do not offer cancellations or refunds. We have a limited capacity and reservations are required.

No experience is required. Our patient guides will help you have the best possible experience. Oh, and this may be your first, but it won't be your last!
18How soon in advance do I need to make reservations?
You should make them today! We realize this may sound self-serving, but we have a limited daily capacity which forces us to require advance reservations for most tours and we sell out far in advance during the busy seasons.
19Will I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, it is required that you sign a waiver similar to any other you may sign to participate in a physical activity. Parents or legal guardians must sign a waiver for their minor children. The minor waiver can be downloaded here

Cameras ARE welcome on the Wolfe Creek Photo Safari Tour, which is a ground based tour.
