These guys are in to so safely show you the best time you could have outdoors in the High Country. There are alot of outdoor guide options in the area - but these guys are definately the best!!

Peter Ely led both the caving and white water rafting parts of our tour. He was professional, personable and knowledgeable... and really brought the experience to life with his insights and character. When we go back, we will be requesting Peter again - and we recommend you do too!

This caving experience is very different from that of a commercial cave. There is no lighting or paved stairways which make it a very authentic experience; don't worry you'll have a headlamp. Our guides, Brennan and Wes, were phenomenol and super fun! I took my 7 year old, and he says, "It was awesome, and much better than a commercial... More

Went out white water rafting on the French Broad. Excellent experience with breathtaking views. Our guide, Mike Jennings, was extremely safe with a very through safety brief and care of his customers. He was very knowledgeable of the river and surrounding areas. His enthusiasm and energy made the trip.... Along with the class 3 and 4 rapids we nailed like... More

My son (17) and I were looking for some exitement while the girls were out horseback riding. Learned in Boone (my fault) that starting point was near Marshall, so we might aswell have stayed i Ashewell. Good thing was though that horse back riding was only 15 minutes away. As this was a Sunday we only had a small group... More

My family of four (kids ages 11 and 7) decided to try caving for the first time. Our guides Brody and Jim were fantastic! Three hours of climbing, crawling, sliding and exploring. The experience far exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to go back! I suggest wearing old clothes that will get muddy with red clay. Jeans, closed toe... More

We decided to stop here on a Sunday afternoon and do a little white water rafting. My son and daughter are 6 and 11 and neither had ever done anything like this! It didn't matter, our guide was Brody, and he made our trip awesome! He took us down the river and made my kids feel right at home! The... More

First, thanks to Brian and Brody for being great guides! We had a blast. " Hey there buddy ..." Three hours or so of climbing and crawling and sliding, you'll definitely get your money's worth. Take a change of clothes, maybe some rubber boots, gloves aren't a bad idea, and be ready to have a good time.
