Rapid Expeditions is a well organized smaller company who give you more of a personal experience. Zak and Adrian were the two guides we had and they were a lot of fun.They need to get together and write a Rafting Guide's Joke Book. They also let us swim along the way which we loved. The upper river has some great... More

Our time on the river was great. We had a group of 8 and broke into two groups - 5 who wanted to do the faster, Upper Pigeon; and 3 who wanted the calmer Lower Pigeon. The Upper Pigeon group had Zach as their guide and had a blast. He was funny and really made the experience great. The Lower... More

We have been rafting before in TN with another larger company and by far this was the best experience. Rapid Expeditions is a smaller outfit so the check in time and the whole experience was much nicer and they stayed on time. Where as the bigger companies fall way behind and we ended up sitting around waiting for hours for... More

Down in Gatlinburg, TN for a girl's weekend, we decided to go river rafting. This was totally a spur-of-the-moment decision! Hartford, TN is about 50 minutes from Gatlinburg. Beautiful scenery along the way. The staff was very friendly and rolled out the southern charm! Our river tour guide was Tony. A handsome young man with a quick wit and extremely... More

Guide Adrian was a lot of fun! Did the lower part, next time we will do the upper (harder) section! Excellent way to spend an afternoon.

Wow! So glad we went with a smaller outfit this time around. Years past we rafted with the bigger name companies but I did my research this year! You can't go wrong with ANY guide. They are ALL knowledgable and professional. We had Zach and he was amazing! Joked around, talked with my boys, and my 8 yr old daughter... More

We had a great time with our guide Adrian on the lower River!! Our three young kiddos 13-5 had a blast. We were not rushed. We felt like a customer and not a number. The hospitality from the entire personal was great. We enjoyed the entire time and all want to come back to do the upper River when the... More

We have four children ranging from 7-16. Our 9 year old was very apprehensive about white water rafting. Zack did a phenomenal job easing her fears and making the entire experience enjoyable for all six of us! The trip was humorous and educational. We highly recommend white water rafting with Zack!!
