We went on the French Broad in late August. Water was low so rapids were not huge, but still a fun trip. Lunch was decent and guides were friendly. This was our second trip with R&E. Would recommend them to friends and family.

I work at a local restaurant in Blowing Rock and also go to school at Appalachian State. Our work family (manager, chef, kitchen staff, and servers) went on the rafting trip along with a separate other group (who rode in a different raft). I had never been on a rafting trip before and it was a great experience! The bus... More

It's a scam! Don't believe whatever they say - they will lie to you to get your money! Don't take kids to the cave: dangerous for their life, and don't go if you are not sportive or army trained! If you care about yourself and your kids, find another company to go to the cave in Tennessee. Believe me, I... More

This is my first review, but we felt too guilty not to finally write a review and let people know about our experience. We decided to drive ourselves to our $170 day, which promised exciting rapids on the French Broad River Basin and a gourmet deli lunch. We read all reviews we could find, and so many positive ones, but... More

Have had multiple guided rafting tours on numerous rivers, this was far and above the best toured adventure experience I have ever had the pleasure of going on! The guides were experienced, professional, and hilarious. There is a lot to offer, can't wait to try caving with them!

Took my family rafting on the Watauga Saturday and Sunday with REA. Had a great time both days, traveled two different sections of the river. The guides where courteous, funny and very knowledgeable of the river. This has been my fifth time with this company and have always had a good experience with them. The rafting trip was great, the... More

BSA Troop 214 - Raleigh, NC had a great time caving with REA on Aug 9-10, 2014. Their new base camp on the Watuaga River in Elizabethton is a perfect spot for Boy Scouts to overnight before going on to Bluff City and Worley's Cave. We enjoyed having the river sing us to sleep Friday night. Our guide, Eagle Scout... More

Fantastic experience! Our first time caving, had no idea what to expect! Aeon and David led us expertly through the caves. They kept it challenging for the entire group, sprinkled in just a bit of history... and kept us laughing <well tried their best> with tour-guide jokes :) Josh prepared a fantastic lunch and joined us for the second half...

We did the caving/rafting combo with Brian and David. They were amazing guides who really took safety into account while having a lot of fun. We had come to the area from Florida with our Girl Scout troop so we had eight 14 year olds. They guides joked with them and were very encouraging and supportive. They really made the... More
