We had a great zip lining trip with our leaders Josh & Ali. My two kids
and I have never been on a zip line course like this before and it was great! I have a 12 year old boy and a 13 year old girl and it was fun for all of us! Josh and Ali were great guides who knew what they were doing and kept us safe. French Broad Adventures was close to Asheville. 10 lines, 2 repels, a bridge and a tree house!

This was our family’s first time Zip lining and my mom in particular was nervous about the speed and the height, but at the end of the afternoon she was having a blast and laughing about how she felt beforehand. She and the rest of our family felt like a big part of our enjoyment was from our zip guides; Josh and Steven. We could tell that they were experienced zippy bois, knew what they were doing, had a laid back easy to talk to personality and made us all laugh more than a couple times. I would definitely come back to zip line here and honestly I wanted to come right back at the end of the tour because i was really getting the hang of things

This was a GREAT experience! It was so much fun and the river/scenery was beautiful. Our instructor, as well as everyone else at French Broad Adventures that we interacted with, was so energetic, fun, and flexible to our small party. My friend and I had a great time - absolutely no complaints. Also, our lunch was fantastic! We are both vegetarians and they had great veggie burgers, cookies, chips, etc. 10/10 all around!
