There are a few over night tasting trips out there but this one was way cheaper and nearly all inclusive! This company works very hard to make sure that their customers are happy. The rafting is awesome and the camping was the easiest experience ever! The snacks and food that they cook and serve is outstanding! The bonus of a... More

This is the second time our family has visited this part of North Carolina and the second rafting experience as well. This was by far our most enjoyable experience. We had a busload of 25 people plus guides for a raft trip down the Nolichucky. I found the guides both friendly and knowledgeable about the river and area. They were... More

My husband and I are recent graduates (2011) from ASU and went up for a long weekend. I looked at several companies and we decided to go with HME. Excellent choice. I called 30 minutes before we wanted to go, they took our reservation and emailed me a receipt. We showed up and the young man just needed to see... More

My family had a fantastic experience with High Mountain Expeditions. The guides were friendly and chatty on the bus ride down and we had a great guide on the river. From start to finish is was a lovely day.

Great fun for the entire family! This is an experience you don't want to miss out on...Chris was an amazing guide and loads of fun. It's definitely on our agenda again next summer!

My family (husband, 10 yo, 8 yo and myself) wanted to do this. My kids talked about it several times before we got up there. As we drove into Banner Elk, they spotted the busses and wanted to go right then. Boy did we not think it would be such a GREAT time. Check-in was a little chaotic but once... More

Our white river rafting trip was the highlight of our vacation in North Carolina. We had two teenage girls and they just loved the trip. The landscape is beautiful, the rapids were 3 and 4 and we managed to enjoy them without anyone falling out of the raft. This I attribute to our guide who was experienced. We managed to... More

We rafted down the Nolichucky last week. Our group consisted of our young adult family & friend (adrenalin junkies!) along with mom and dad in our mid 50's and not in the greatest physical shape. It was great! We had rafted before, but would have felt comfortable with this group even if we had not. We experienced 2, 3 and... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic day on the river with Milton as our guide. Very experienced, (entertaining too) as we were the only raft that did not lose any rafters! We had beautiful weather, scenery breathtaking, and lunch was pretty good too. Only thing I missed was no falls, just rapids, as on some other rivers (i.e.Chatooga) but... More

The guides were terrific. My kids and I had a blast. The river was pretty calm, but the guides really made it fun...I felt like a kid again!
