Jason with the pink helmet! What a great guide! I had three kids with me she ranges from 9 to 12 and two of them petrified of anything over a class one rapid. Jason steered us clear of any danger and before we realized it we made it through three class four rapids. Even though he warned us they were... More

Our rafting trip was amazing! We had a large group of people and the staff was incredibly accommodating. Every raft in our group had a wonderful time- all of the guides were knowledgeable and hilarious. My group's guide, Birdman, made the entire rafting trip so much fun and was probably the best guide of the group. I will recommend this... More

I thought it was going to be a tourist trap. I was skeptical since there were so many people but once you got on the water it was so much fun. I wish it was longer on the upper river because it was a good time. Our guide was knowledgeable and kept everyone safe. We will be back!

This was my second time white water rafting. The first time was in Colorado years ago and loved it, so this time I decided to take my oldest son and his friend rafting and zip lining for the first time. We had so much fun and loved our guide on the river. I definitely recommend this outfitter and we will... More

I am actually quite afraid of water and there was no way I could face White-water rafting but I did want to go on the water in the Smokies to get a different view. Rafting in the Smokies offer a family raft ride which is quite calm so I booked that online before we travelled. When we arrived the lady... More

We had a great time. Brooks, our guide had a wonderful sense of humor. He had to to put up with 7 women. We did the lower river since 5 of the group had never rafted and were somewhat timid about it. All had a great time and the 2 of us that rafted before wished we had more time... More

Convenience and a high Google result led me to book this company. We were there just as summer visitor traffic dropped off: We had none of the wait-time challenges mentioned in other reviews; there was plenty of company but we didn't feel it was overly crowded. We're encouraged to rate on Trip advisor, and I am because our river guide,... More

We enjoyed the upper river trip. Our guide was Sammy who new the river well. He was able to get us into some of the best spots. We could tell, he loved his job and enjoyed sharing his job/sport.
