We started off our adventure with a Zip Line activity led by entertaining and helpful guides, Chris and Lindsey. That afternoon, we were led by Tim, a 20 year rafting veteran down the French Broad and had a wonderful time. It was safe, exciting and refreshing family fun. There were two places along the river where we could swim and... More

We had a fantastic time on their zip line/rafting trip. Josh, D., and Shawn were very entertaining and professional. Their jokes and humor made the trip so much fun! I would definitely recommend French Broad Rafting and Ziplines to anyone looking to have some fun!

Our family enjoyed tremendously our trip down the French Broad River with Chris as our guide....even if I did get tossed from the raft! Thanks to the thorough safety lesson by Sean, the "experience" of being tossed into the river was a non-event. But Chris, our river guide, was great! We enjoyed tremendously his tales and stories as we rafted... More

This was our second time rafting as a family, but our first time on the French Broad River. (We have children ages 10 and 16.) We used FBRZ on July 23, 2105, and had a great experience. Our guide (Robbie, an environmental science major at UNC-Asheville) was knowledgable--not only about rafting but also about the ecology of the river and... More

Me and my daughter had a great time there today July 29, 2015. Great guides on the zip line. And the white water rafting. We both loved it and talked about it all the way home. Great way to make memories that will stay with your children for a lifetime. Only mistake I made was not taking cash with me... More

Our family had an excellent adventure on the river. Our guide, Caylor, was an awesome guide and very knowledgable on the river. Our entire raft were all first timers river rafting. Caylor gave us great instructions and was very entertaining. I would highly recommend French Board River Rafting. We will definitely be back and this time do the 9 mile... More

Visited with 7 friends while on a college reunion trip to Asheville. We had Ed as our guide for the 1-3 level raft trip and had an amazing, unforgettable time! Ed was entertaining, telling jokes and about the history of the river while we paddled along. I learned a lot and had fun doing it. Ed made our trip seem... More

We had a great time doing both. Everyone was pleasant from check in to departure. Josh and Alec or zip line guide were great. Robbie was our chilling Rafting guide. Great way to spend the day up in the trees and on the water.

The river guides were outstanding. They were fun and real river rats ... AND at the same time they took their craft seriously in terms of safety and service and making sure we had a good time. They knew the river and history really well. Our family had an fantastic time. If it rains or is cold they will proceed... More
