Had a blast, guides were professional and funny telling jokes and making everybody at ease. It was a drizzly day but below the tree canopy you did not notice. I've done a lot of zip lines and this has one of the fastest. Fall leaves were amazing, definately will come back next year.

This was a really fun zipline. My wife and I were celebrating her birthday and thought it would be fun to go. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best in the world (cold and misty at times), but all-in-all it was fun. We have been on more adventurous ziplines, so I would recommend this one if you've never ziplined before or... More

Last Friday I went ziplining at French Broad Ziplines and it proved to be a perfect anniversary gift for my honey. Our instructors were Thomas and Lindsay and they helped us to have a wonderful trip even though it was raining. They provided my boyfriend with a windbreaker since he forgot his own. I will definitely come back and I... More

It was awesome. We had a great time. Ryan and Leigh made the experience even better. Great job on their part. We came the last week in October when all the leafs change color, so it made it more fun and awesome. A must to do when coming to NC. The pictures they took were great. Will definitely come back...

I bought a groupon and thought it might be a good idea to include a little ziplining on our motorcycle trip to the Smokies. Wasn't expecting much, but our guides, Ryan and Lindsey made the whole adventure seem like a group of friends just hanging out in the trees for a couple of hours. There were 4 of us, and... More

Rafting was of moderate thrill. The guide Richard was fantabulous. He kept the whole ride with interesting tribias about the french broad river. Ziplining was full of fun. The guides bryan and lindsey were very good. I would strongly recommend this place if you are planning for a group activity for one whole day.

Our guide was Marti. She was awesome! It was our first time rafting and she made us feel very comfortable. It was as though she were on vacation with us! Great experience, great guide, great people throughout this company. Will definitely return to do this again!

We did the 1-3 rapids (5 mile) and we had a blast. Shawn was our guide and he was not only hilarious, he was also knowledgeable and we all felt very comfortable with him. We will definitely be coming back but we will be doing the 9 mile trip next time as well as the zip lining! Definitely worth the... More

A great experience! Make sure you bring a GoPro camera. They want nearly $50 for a photo CD, which is the only negative.
