We had actually planned to book with NOC, but when they were full we turned to Adventurous Fast Rivers and we are so happy that we did. Our family of 6 had a great guided trip from Joe on the last day of the season! The kids had a lot of fun and the owners were extremely friendly. Would definitely... More

We have to give HUGE kudos to Nantahala Outdoor Center and our guide Kelsey for making our rafting trip down the Nantahala a first rate adventure. She really did an amazing job introducing us to rafting and now, just a few hours later, we have all of the N.O.C. navigated rivers planned for next year (2015). All we are waiting... More

The guides make all the difference. They were absolutely wonderful and we had an amazing time in every way. You won't be disappointed and you'll get a much more personalized experience than at some of the larger places on the river. Can't wait to go back. Thanks again!

Our family went on a guided rafting tour of the Nantahala and WHAT A RIDE it was. John our guide was an experienced hand and gave us a great time and adventure on the rapids. This was well worth it and we WILL DO IT AGAIN.

Everything about the operation is first rate. If you are in the Bryson City area you have to take the Fast Rivers trip.

This company offered an absolutely wonderful day! Steve, the owner, made us feel like a friend of the business. We went on a Tuesday, $5 off for college students, and my boyfriend and I did two turns of the 8.5 mile run starting at 10:45a and 2:45p, they offer ½ off of the second run. We spent about 6.5 hours... More

This crew was great! We had a total of 38 scouts and adults on our trip and Fast Rivers made it easy from beginning to end. We starting planning with them about 60 days out and both Steven and Sue did everything they could to make it easier for us. They have a great group "pre trip packet" that we... More
