We did this adventure with our 9 year old son. The organization of the trip was a little rocky in the beginning. They had a hard time placing us in a time slot and kept forgetting when we were booked which made it confusing for everyone. Once the office personnel got everything straight (took two days) it was smooth sailing.... More

We had so much fun on our expedition. All of the guides were super nice and entertaining on the bus ride. Our guide, JD, was amazing and super knowledgeable. We were all smiles the entire time, and definitely recommend this for anyone vacationing in Tennessee!

We had a great time on our first rafting trip! We had 3 kids with us and they loved it. Our guide was Connor and he was fantastic. The water was just swift enough so you didn't feel uneasy or that you might fall out. Highly recommend!

My husband and I booked this over the phone and was very pleased with all they had to offer. Zip lining and whitewater rafting. The people that work there were all very helpful. Especially our guide. Steve who has been doing this for over 17 years was very helpful and knowledgeable. He knew a ton about the area and really... More

This was my first time white water rafting and to be honest I was nervous. Big Creek has the most experienced guides and they calmed my nerves immediately! I felt so confident that our guide was in control and was comfortable immediately. I can't give enough kudos to Greg S. He is absolutely the most amazing guide. I can't recommend... More

We went for the lower river rafting as we had young children 5+, they loved it! They got the chance to get into water at some point. And the Guides made the trip exciting with their tricks. thank you! Would like to return for upper river rafting when kids can join the fun.

This was the second time that I have used Big Creek Expeditions for my white water rafting experience. Had a great time rafting down the Pigeon with Jedi Mike as our guide! Will definitely be back!

This was the highlight of our trip! Our party of 8 could not all fit in one raft so we had to split our group into 2 groups of 4 and our rafts didn't stay together at all so we never saw each other. But other than that, the experience was amazing! Our guide was awesome! The young lady in... More

My family had a blast! Everyone was nice and had a great sense of humor. We ended up going twice in one day because we enjoyed it so much.

This is the best river to be on for your first time white water rafting. midway through the river we stop in the middle of the waves and set there. Also one mile down we jumped in the calm section of the river. Tour guide told us jokes and smiled the whole time plus a history lesson. Best day of... More
