We greatly enjoyed our rafting trip. The guides and the whole experience proved to be better than we expected. Even though it wasn't quite as much white water as I was hoping for, it was still fun. I think any age and athletic ability would enjoy the trip. This company is also big enough to be capable and trusted (as... More

We are very happy with the team, we were running late and called to re schedule, costumer service was good, they wait for us to get there. We enjoy our ride, first timers, a little scared but we had fun, we hit rapids II IV, team very professional. I highly recommend this tour.

We called and made reservations because we were told that the water from the dam wasn't released ever day. When we got there, we were told that it wasn't a guaranteed water day, so we had to wait to see if the water would be released. We finally got word that we could raft and we suited up. (We had...

The staff is friendly, organized, educational and fun! Pay attention to the instructions they email you - they are detailed and important and leave you perfectly prepared if you follow them. We did the class 3&4 Upper Pigeon River trip. I have rafted 3 times before elsewhere...i've done class 1,2,3 and 4. This trip was exciting and invigorating in places... More

This was our first time rafting and we had a blast. We are in our 50s and were a little apprehensive since the rest of the rafters appeared to be a lot younger. Our guide Chris Young put us at ease immediately. He was great. It was a busy weekend since it was a holiday. There were a lot of... More

I enjoyed my time rafting and zip lining with friends but there were few things that could have been better. Some of the good things were lot of zip lines (6 in this case), rafting in a river in one of the most beautiful mountains I have seen and we got to jump in the river water, friendly and easy... More

We went rafting for the first time with Rafting in the Smokies and it was a blast. There were 7 people in our group and every one of us loved the experience. It was easy enough for newbies but still really exciting. Our guide Kp even had us doing tricks like "surfing" on some of the rapids. He was really... More
