I chose this rafting tour because of the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. I regret that decision, as this trip was not as glorious as was advertised. I signed up for the six hour rafting tour that started at 11:00. The tour does not actually start at 11:00….people were still filing into the office to register, get life jackets, use... More

Choppy, Mack, Ben and the rest of the staff were just incredibly funny, entertainers, shameless, natural comedians, accommodating, caring...... The view beautiful!!! Very relaxing but fun at the same time. This team make you laugh on the bus on the way to the river, take their time to service you lunch while making you laughing, then to made activities taking...

Our family (2 kids, 8 and 10) went on this rafting trip in late July. It was a laugh-a-minute for all of us and we had the best day ever! The staff is amazing and the rafting is so fun. They feed you lunch and you can do and redo the best rapid on the trip during your lunch break.... More

From the very beginning when we met the guides we knew this would not be a simple water rafting trip. You can automatically tell that this boys not only enjoy their job, but they make the very best of it! Most of their jokes were horrible!....but the kind of horrible that makes you laugh along with them. We were "that"... More

As one of our groups called it this is the frat boy rafting trip. Positives: being able to rerun the one "major" rapid over and over again. In general the river was beautiful. Rafting experience was good. Our guide was great while in the boat. Negatives: major disorganization in the store. Both before and after the trip. Part of our... More

Great crew that takes you out. It's like a rafting trip and comedy entertainment show all in one. The best home cooked lunch, and the only company to let you ride the rapid over and over. Highlight of our trip.

This staff was outstanding and was the highlight of our week long vacation. We will absolutely return. The scenery is great but the hospitality and fun that the guides created were definetly the best part! Also the best fried chicken you will ever taste.

Absolutely fantastic. Long bus ride but they do a good job of entertaining during the trip. River is fun but cold. Great fun for the beginners.

We went white water rafting with Edge of the World with a large party of 13 of varied ages (12 to 69) and varied physical state. We chose this trip because I did not think my parents could handle a big white water rafting trip. This company was a great choice because not only was the rafting fun but it... More

First time I have white water rafterd and was not disappointed. From the minute we walked into the shop until the minute we were dropped off at the end of the day we didn't stop laughing. The journey to Tennessee was around an hour long with entertainment and laughter all of the way. I felt completely safe in the hands... More
