Our guide was Alex. Ask for him he is fun, knowledgeable, and made our trip wonderful. We did the middle but want to go back to do the upper. We went on a week day when the river wasn't as congested with other rafters and had more time to "Take our time"

My first rafting trip. Alex, Les , the other Guides- very professional & fun but safety was their top priority. I first hand saw them in a rescue situation and they performed as well as any public safety pros- I know I am one. I will definitely be returning there and they are a great company. The rescue delayed us... More

I have gone with other companies on this river the past and the experience was nowhere as close to this one! The guides are spectacular and friendly and the facilities are clean.

This was a great first experience. Everyone was so nice and helpful. They were very accommodating, as we needed to add two people last minute. Our guides from beginning to end were amazing as well. Tweedle and Adam made our rafting trip a memorable one. They realm knew what they were doing, and made us all feel comfortable. It was... More

Decided to start the summer out right with a full day of rafting on the Upper and Middle sections of the Ocoee River. Thanks to everyone at Big Frog Expeditions, we had an exciting and fun-filled day in some of the most beautiful countryside I've been blessed to see! This wasn't our first time with Big Frog, and it definitely... More

Great experience! Alex the owner's son was our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable of the river and historical facts. My friend had a injured knee Alex was cautious but made the rafting a thrill seeking experience if that's possible! We didn't feel rushed to get the trip over. Safety was their first priority at Big Frog! We enjoyed it so... More

We took a large group of high school students and leaders on a Big Frog trip and we LOVED it! The pre-trip reservations end was excellent. They had great customer service all the way from the front office to the guides. Thanks Big Frog. We'll be back again this summer with our group as well!
