My husband and I took our 2 children (ages 5 and 7) rafting down the lower Pigeon River with Rapid Expeditions over Labor Day weekend. It was a blast!! Our children had a wonderful time and our guide was so helpful. Everyone at Rapid Expeditions was so friendly and made our experience top-notch. It was a very family-friendly atmosphere and... More

I was on vacation with my boyfriend and his family in late August 2013 and we wanted to do a fun activity in a group. My boyfriend and I met Amelia (our guide) in downtown Gatlinburg, where she was promoting Rapid Expeditions. We were so happy that we decided to make a reservation with this company! Amelia was very experienced,... More

Our family of five went rafting on August 27th and had a blast. Our children (including an 8 year old) have rafted before but by no means are experienced. Our guide Amelia was experienced and professional but laid back. She geared the trip toward our level and made it exciting and fun. We have rafted on other rivers with bigger... More

Cy was our tour guide! He was awesome! Felt completely safe with him as our guide. Very funny and made the trip great. Staff very friendly. Bus driver was very funny and gave interesting facts about the river. First time rafting would definitely recommend!!!

We recently went to Rapid Expeditions just so my teen son could get a lesson from a really good whitewater kayak instructor. We definitely found him. Dave spent hours working with him on safety rules, reading the water, learning skills, reviewing earlier material, and having fun. My son is hooked on kayaking now! Meanwhile, my husband and I went rafting.... More

We rafted the Pigeon River a couple years ago with a big company and we're so glad we chose to go with Rapid Expeditions this time. Felt like cattle being herded at the big company but at RE they were so personable. From returning my early morning call within minutes to offering to keep our dog, it was a great... More

The people at Rapid Expeditions make it their mission to issure anyone has a great experience. We were lucky to get Zack as our guide. He was incredibly funny and informative, making learning the safety information and the ride to our drop off stop a riot. Our ride down the river took a little less time because the water was...

My family met in Tenn for the weekend and enjoyed a few hours going white water rafting. Some of us had never done this before so there were some jitters before going out. Our guide Sy made us all feel at ease and was very engaging. Close to the end of the excursion, our group voted to try "surfing" Sy... More

Would NOT use a GPS to get there! Has no curb appeal what so ever, but don't judge the book by it's cover... The staff was fun and friendly. The trip was great fun. I would definitely recommend this place to all. We did the "upper" more intense trip and loved it! Our age group consisted of 3 eight yr... More

26 in our group. All had a great time. Many had never been white water rafting before. All four guides Carrie, Dave, Jay, & (low river guide -did not catch his name) were great.
