This rafting trip was tons of fun. Big Frog was easy to locate and it's a beeeautiful drive to get out there. The staff was so friendly and had a good sense of humor. We all stayed in the raft and had a blast on the class 3 and 4 rapids. Can't wait to go back!

In all honestly, we had no idea which was the best outfitter to use for a trip down the Ocoee. There were several offering a Groupon, including Big Frog. I started reading reviews and also looking at the what the Groupon offered. Before I go further, understand the Ocoee is the most rafted river in the country. It's water flow... More

Great day on the Upper portion of the Ocoee. Our guide Alex was awesome, very knowledgable, and engaging. Not to mention a spitting image of James Franco. Big Frog was very hospitable and fun!

Great Class III/IV trip with experienced guides and a great staff. From the reservation (cut us a better deal than a Groupon we saw) through check in and the trip itself, all the staff were friendly and helpful. Our guide, Les, gave us a great ride, surfing several rapids that other rafts went straight through. His commentary-keeping up aware of... More

I'm a city boy, I never experienced anything like this before. I must say this will always be one of my most favorite trips. I was skeptic at first, I didn't really think I was gonna enjoy white water rafting. I was wrong, white water rafting is awesome!!! I highly recommend Big Frog Expeditions!!! Great company with an awesome staff!!!... More

I brought my husband here as a 40th birthday surprise along with another couple. My husband and our friends who came are all from Miami, so lets just say they were a little apprehensive. Turned out to be one of the best things we have ever done, truly a life changing event for us all. Dan was great, he kept... More

Went rafting with a group of 5 friends and Joey was our awesome guide! Rob, the owner, was helpful in getting us set and super friendly. Paul, the trip leader, gave us the safety speech and added a little humor to the serious nature of what we were about to get into. I have been rafting before on other rivers... More

It was pretty amazing. I have used this company twice for some of my campers and it was equally great both times. My group was smaller kids and they ensured that we were safe and still got all the thrills. Our guide Donnie was fun and mature enough to make sure we had a great time. He exudes experience and...
