This trip was an unexpected pleasure and treasure. Barbara our driver was so full of genuine life and happiness. Their are seven or so stops along the way that makes this two hour trip up Rocky Top Road a very unique experience. Without her knowledge and true love for what she shares with her guests this would be just another... More

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

We had a fantastic day. Several started the day with the zip lines. Youngest was 7yr. After picnic lunch headed out to the family rafting trip. Our guide Daniel was awesome. 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
