My boyfriend and I just went to Rapid Expeditions this past Saturday and it was the most fun we have ever had. The guides that are on each raft were both very well trained and knowledgeable about the rafts, safety, and the river. With safety still being their number one priority, our guides could not get the smiles off all... More

What a Great experience ! We had 2 experienced guides Greg and Zack. We watched other outfitters where rafts we're going the wrong way down the river and some even flipped . Very knowledgeable and professional Brian---- MN

We took 24 people rafting as part of a corporate team getaway in Gatlinburg. I was uneasy at first because Rapid Expeditions is one of the smaller rafting businesses on the Pigeon River. However, we found that smaller is much better! Zach was an awesome guide, and we also figured out that the larger rafting companies are simply trying to... More

Our family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our upper river rafting trip, with Tony as our guide! We felt safe and confident from beginning to end, and the whole staff was very personable. We liked going with a smaller company, where you don't feel like just one of a giant herd. We got personalized service. I would recommend going on an... More

We had my husband and I, two teenagers and two tweens for this trip, a first rafting experience for most of us. The staff was great, helpful and fun. The scenery was beautiful, and our guide, Zach, made the trip even more enjoyable. He was personable and funny, and did a great job.
