I had reserved our excursion with Wildwater a month before our trip. I received a couple emails along the way, a reservation confirmation after using their website and a reminder a week or so before the trip. I purchased the Rail and Trails package so we took the train out from Bryson and at the train's turnaround point we disembarked... More

The staff was very accommodating from the booking aspects to the actual trips. We had two great tour guides on the zip lining and we thought it was an excellent trip. Everything was very organized and for the most part on time. Our rafting experience was excellent. Larry, our guide, was extremely informative during the lesser parts of the river... More

Had a blast. Nantahala is tame for experienced rafters but was awesome in the Duckys (inflatable kayak). Staff were helpful (no guides with the Duckys) and the facilities were amazing.

While this Natahala, barely reaches the excitement of a 3 class, there were lots of lots of fast moving spots to give the running the rapids sensation for... More
