I was a little nervous since been so long but this was the perfect rafting experience . Fun relaxing yet challenging enough. Our guide Wayne was awesome. He made it fun and was... More

This was a family vacation with young kids (9 and two 7 year old) and we wanted to do something fun and adventurous. I've been white water rafting before so for me these rapids where on the small scale for the kids it was perfect. We went with Fast River because of their affordability, as we where a group of...

Second time rafting as family. First time on different river and with guide. Decided to go without a guide since rapids smaller. Teens were not excited with rapids. Staff was excellent and trip to and from river short. Would recommend to families with younger children but not teens.

We had never been white water rafting before and the Nantahala is perfect for beginners...just enough rapids to be fun but not so big that its scary.

Our family of six had so much fun rafting together and the river was a good start for somebody with not much whitewater rafting experience. Most of us in the family have never rafted before, but our awesome guide Nicole explained everything clearly, making the experience memorable and safe. We were never bored on the trip, Nicole was such a... More
