My husband and I did the 3 hour river tubing trip. The staff was friendly and they had very nice tubes with headrests and cup holders. They rent water shoes, dry boxes and push sticks for $2.00. Definitely get the water shoes and the push sticks as the river is very rocky and very shallow in sports. It takes a... More

We were a group of 11. For several of my friends this was the first time they'd ever gone tubing. We had a blast! The water was shallow in places and we'd have to walk and/or push ourselves off the rocks but all in all everyone said they had a great time. One of my friends lost a Ziploc bag... More

We had a fabulous float on the New River. The river is shallow, but easy enough to float down in tubes or kayaks. This was a favorite activity of our 1 week trip to the area!

After reading some of the reviews what are these people expecting Disney? This is a locally owned company that employ locals, that take your money and put you in a old van or truck...haul you a few miles upstream, let you out....and you float or kayak down the river(shallow river) so be prepared for shallow spots...stay away from the loud...

We failed to read the details of our Groupon and arrived without a reservation (don't do that - it's in the middle of nowhere). They didn't have room to shuttle us, but still let us go tubing and drove me back to the car at the start of the journey. They had lots of helpful things like water shoe rental... More

We purchased a groupon. We arrived and waited to go. We were advised upon loading the cooler raft cost $15. We had communicated several times prior and this was never mentioned. We loaded into a van and the driver was bored. We got off at the drop-off and not a word of instruction of what to do next or what... More

Rented bikes for a half-day ride in Todd from Rivergirl. They were so laid back and helpful. It was lots of fun. I have a 10 yr old and 15 yr old and was not sure exactly what they would think, but one mile in, all we heard was, "We love this!!!!" We ended up riding the 11 miles to... More

We did some research online and found the River Girl Fishing Company which is located in Todd NC, and was only about 15mins away from our Hotel in Boone (The... More

Purchased tubbing trip through Groupon. Found it difficult to get ahold of anyone with the company to schedule an appointment. The location was somewhat difficult to find. They provided VERY little instruction. They over crowded van (not enough seat belts for everyone) to drive to the drop point. Upon completion of your float down the river you have to walk... More
