My 17 yr old daughter and I went on the Raft/Cave combo with the River and Earth Adventure outfit and I was more than impressed! Our guides, Ryan and John we knowledgeable, professional, friendly, entertaining and most importantly, very safety conscious! The caving was by far the best we'd ever done. Not for the wimpy (or claustrophobic) we crawled, balanced... More

Yall need to get over to River & Earth asap. Can't say enough good things about this company ...from the very professional but laid back and approachable owner, Grant, to the knowledgeable guides that ease minds of first timers or any/all with hesitations. Laura guided us safely down the Watauga River, and despite a massive downpour mid trip, she remained... More

We did the entry-level whitewater rafting adventure with River and Earth Adventures. It was a last minute booking-- just showing some out-of-town guests a good time-- and we had a blast! OK, calling it "whitewater" may be a bit of a stretch, but between Ty, an eight year old from Georgia, and Mike, our guide it was as entertaining an... More

Super fun half day trip for my son's 10th b-day. Aeon is an amazing guide & will teach you all about hydrology, flora & fauna (and keep everyone laughing & excited) at no extra charge. Such a gorgeous area. Had a fantastic ride!

We went rafting on the Watagua River with our river guide, Ryan. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and had a freaking sweet beard. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life! The price is very cheap for what you get out of it. The water never got too rough and Ryan allowed us to do whatever... More

This was my first experience with River and Earth Adventures, Inc. having been recommended by a friend. My guide, Ryan, was very well-informed and knowledgeable about the lake and the history. He even educated me on the Appalachian River Eagles which I certainly had never heard about before. He was hard-working and I suspect had to work twice as hard... More

I can't say enough about how awesome trip was. My husband and I booked a last minute trip. We did the combo spelunking and rafting trip. Josh was our guide. He was full of the best corny jokes and a had great easy going attitude. He immediately made us feel like we had all been friends for years. I definitely... More
