We stayed one night in a Yurt on-site, got up and went to Rivers End for breakfast, then ziplined in the morning, and whitewater rafted in the afternoon. Every member of the staff was awesome and the experience was amazing!

Loved the trip our family took with these guys! Our raft guide Thomas was excellent and made the trip very wet and awesome! Couldn't ask for a better afternoon.

We did the rail and raft adventure and it was a great time. First we got to see the beautiful scenery of the Smoky Mountains, then raft down the river. Our guide Jay did a great job. We can wait to go again next year.

We had a wonderful and exciting trip down the river. Unfortunately the front two passengers on our boat were neither listening nor rowing properly so Rachael basically did the whole trip herself...however she did it with a smile and a joke. We were sitting right next to her and got more out of the trip by doing so. She made... More

Our family had a great day rafting with Jane our guide. Our youngest (10) was nervous but easily put at ease by our guide. It was the perfect amount of smooth riding with beautiful scenery mixed with the excitement if the rapids.

This was our first rafting trip, and my two boys loved it. Chris, our guide, was awesome! He explained everything well, guided us on a fabulous trip, and let us decide when we wanted to do different things like spin or go down backwards. I cannot say enough good things about our trip. We cannot wait to go back!

My 15 yr old daughter and I came to water raft and do the jeep tour. It was a very rainy day and I was apprehensive to say the least. Our jeep tour guide Bill was very nice. He gave us a jacket to wear due to the rain and cool temperature and took us to places we really enjoyed... More

This is a well run rafting company! Everything with our trip went smooth, except the rapids! They were mostly class 2, so a nice float. The water here is always around 47 degrees - so expect to be a little cold. Very refreshing on a hot day! I am looking forward to rafting on the other rivers that Wildwater operates... More

My wife and I, along with our 13 year old daughter and her 13 year old cousin, took the Nantahala Raft and Rail with the Great Smokey Mountains Railway and Wildwater, ltd. The girls were very excited by the train trip, and we all enjoyed a pleasant two hour trip through the Smokies to our destination on the river. We... More

We had an excellent guide and an excellent trip. We felt like they rolled out the red carpet for us! Our guide was extremely delightful and funny. But when the time arose, he was johnny on the spot! We had a 16 yr old "take a swim" but he had hold of her and yanked her back in the boat... More
