It was 3 of us including myself that chose Adventurous Fast Rivers for our 1st White Water Rafting Experience. I chose it for the close proximity to Fontana Village Resort where ZdayZ 2015 was going on. Also, I read many good reviews and it turned out that all those good reviews were true. When calling to make a reservation, the... More

We had four raft loads of boy scouts who were "first timers" to white water on 5/2/15. Tim and the crew did a great job of training and guiding. Everyone had a ball - the river is gorgeous and the facility at Adventurous Fast Rivers is very nice. We had a picnic for 25 on the river's edge after the... More

We had a group of 8 in a large raft. We were running a little late for the trip, but I called ahead to tell the staff and they were accommodating. The staff is great, and you can't beat the location. They are located about 20 minutes up-river of the falls, so on your trip down you stop back in... More

After calling around to other outfitters, I chose AFR for our girlfriend rafting trip. The competition are larger companies with young girls answering calls with limited information. After seeing other good reviews, I called Steve, who not only answered all my questions but offered additional information and was so much more personable. He was just as accommodating when we (four... More

Went with some friends in April 2015 and had a blast. Steven and the staff were first-rate and took great care of us. Highly, highly recommended!

We have been down the Nantahala several times, but this was the first with Fast Rivers. They were great! Our guide, Anthony, was fantastic and did a great job instructing us. We will be repeat customers.

Took family, husband and 4 girls 16, 13, 12, 9, and me on our first rafting trip. Great fun! Guides were professional and I felt safe. Beautiful scenery! River not too rough but not too tame. Definitely got wet waist down. Front two riders got a little more wet. Guides were funny and made it even more fun. Place was... More

My son's first whitewater rafting trip. I called several places and only got answering machines. Steve actually answered the phone and so we booked with him. The cost was pretty reasonable - $35.00 a person. This area is pretty much shut down in March, but Steve opened up for us and 2 other people. Our guide was very knowledgeable and... More

We had actually planned to book with NOC, but when they were full we turned to Adventurous Fast Rivers and we are so happy that we did. Our family of 6 had a great guided trip from Joe on the last day of the season! The kids had a lot of fun and the owners were extremely friendly. Would definitely... More
