There simply is not enough space to share all the good there is about the employees of this company and the trips they offer. Right from the start, Mark and Phil in the Banner Elk shop help you identify the right trip for your group. They are beyond kind and helpful, always going out of their way to address every contingency and need (a huge perk up there with ever changing weather conditions). You will quickly consider them friends - and will come back year after year! High Mountain is leaps and bounds better than competitor Wahoo.
The tubing operation on the New River run by the phenomenal James and Jenni is true family fun. It is so well organized and the new facility is great too. They go out of their way to help you with any need (once actually sending a line to catch a broken toy in need of batteries, driving back to the facility, getting batteries, and throwing it back into the river within 20 minutes for a little boy). It is a relaxing "mellow" trip and they offer a variety of tubes to accommodate younger children (bottom tubes) and even cooler tubes for your picnic and beverages. The company is very lucky to have them.
The Wataga trip is perfect for families with younger children even though the water is cold. The staff is great and it is a fun day!
The all day trip on the Noli is outstanding. Whether in rafts or "funyaks," depending on water levels - you are guaranteed a great experience with super knowledgeable guides. Kurt and Scott are especially amazing. It is an all around super well planned day filled with fun, laughter, wildlife, information, and adventure. They go out of their way to make everyone, even the kids, feel important and like they are "pros."
Can not say enough good about these folks and what they do!
