Perfect day trip from Waynesville area. We had a group of 5, including two middle schoolers and 86 year old grandmother. Our guides, Turner and Taylor, were fun, patient and supremely safety conscious. Everyone wants to come back. We are already planning for our next trip.

Our family of 3, dad, mom and 11-year old son, had a great time! Our guides, Steve and Jared, made us feel very comfortable and safe the whole way, explaining the whole process to us as we went. Facilities were very nice, all the workers were friendly and upbeat. Definitely recommend this for a family adventure! See our review also... More

He shared some things to do in the area. He made our trip worth every minute. If you are looking for a relaxing raft trip this is for you!!... More

We had the time of our lives! Barbara kept us entertained while showing us the amazing sites. We plan to do the tour again in October to see the Fall foliage.

Had the time of my life! I wish they would have gone over the safety instructions in a less noisy area such as the bus ride to the starting point, but the rapids themselves were great. The guides know what they're doing, and are very humorous. Just do what they say, and you'll have a great time! I recommend this... More

This was a great adventure. Our guides Mike & Trent were great. They explained everything in detail and were very safe. We did not feel insecure about the trip at all. Since it was off-season, we were the only ones that went up. That was great. I can't wait to go back and take others with us. Next time we... More

Our family just took a wildwater zipline canopy tour and had a blast. My wife, our boys( 11 & 13 )and I found our guides, Jedi Mike and Trent very informative and entertaining. The standard of safety was the highest and the experience was a delight. I would recommend this adventure to family and friends.

My husband and I booked the combo trip of rafting and zip lining and we had a great time! I was very nervous about the zip lining but had a ton of fun, and we both really enjoyed the rafting. Great bbq for lunch too. Ask for Mike!
