Our cave trip was amazing! Dave is an excellent guide. He detailed tons of cave information, history, and interesting facts. He made sure we all stayed safe, even made sure we were properly outfitted. My little brother now aspires to be a cave guide when he grows up because of Dave’s encouragement.

Justin who was our guide took very good care of us. We had a great white water rafting experience. I would definitely rate this company very high with safety. Justin was very thorough in explaining the safety instructions

My son was interested in something different to celebrate his 22nd birthday, so we took a caving trip with River and Earth Adventures-we are so glad that we did. There were two guides with our tour and we were given the option of going with one of the guides on a tour that did not include navigating the tight spaces... More

We had an awesome day of tubing! The staff was great and very accommodating for our group of 6. We did the 2 hour float trip and really enjoyed stopping at the rope swing to cut a few flips in the river!! We will highly recommend this place to our family and friends. We can't wait to come back and... More

If you want a personalized awesome experience then this is the place to book your adventure!! Josh and Mack were great guides and the staff are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. When we arrived at take out spot we saw dozens of cookie cutter boats and buses of people going down river together.. We were just one raft and explored alone.... More

My family of five (a teenager, two younger kiddos, the hubs and me) wanted to take in an easy rafting tour of the beautiful mountain waters and we were recommended by a local in Boone to check out River and Earth. So happy we did! We had to travel to Tennessee to get to base which...seriously...the views in every direction... More

Fun day! Nice introduction to whitewater for kids. Relaxing ride, but just enough whitewater to get you a little cooled off & keep everyone from being bored. Madison, our guide, was great & suggested a great local restaurant, which we enjoyed. Heads up though: the place you start this trip is about an hour from Boone. Really closer to the... More

I'm not exaggerating, the guides make the trip. If you are looking for a unique and fun experience, go with River and Earth Adventures. My 11 year old needed a little extra attention in the cave and our guide took his time and helped her all the way. He was the best! Nine of us went tubing also and enjoyed... More
