The Upper River tour was a blast! It was challenging during certain times, and quite peaceful during other moments. Running the Olympic course near the end of the Upper Course was definitely our favorite part! Our guide was awesome - very relaxed, but professional. He did a good job of explaining the challenges ahead without making us feel anxious or... More

What a great experience! The staff was friendly and made us feel at ease with what was to come. Our guide, Jordan, kept it light and told jokes and was extremely personable. The check in process was simple and friendly. Orientation was informative while putting us at ease with personal narratives. We would recommend this operation to anyone!

We did upper pigeon rafting with Wildwater company. It was a very good experience. All staff were very nice. It was our first time rafting but we had no issues. Only negative was that our guide took a short cut at the end of our ride (probably she had to go somewhere early) without informing us that it was a... More

We decided to do both the zip line and Upper Pigeon rafting at Wildwater the same day and had a fantastic time! What a wonderful day. Our Canopy Zip Line guides were very knowledgeable and we felt very safe all along the course. The mountain side views were awesome and the last zip line on the trip was the longest... More

We originally signed up for the family rafting on the Lower Pigeon River, but Wildwater staff encouraged us to do the Upper Pigeon rafting trip since we had older kids in the group. Some of us newbies were a little nervous, but our guide Steve made everyone feel safe and comfortable. He did a great job and we all had... More

Our group included a party of 8, aged 10-60. They were very accommodating and easy to work with. We originally made reservations online but everybody's time was different. After a short simple phone call, we were all scheduled for the same time for the zip lines and rafting. Canopy Zip lining was a blast! Our guides, Turner and Mike (... More

Let me say that our guide was AMAZING!! Mike O. Was his name and he was very knowledgeable about the river and TN. Shout out to Mike! Wild water is pretty small but that's good because you can get that one on one service and feel special. I would define you recommend wild water rafting!

We absolutely loved rafting the Upper Pigeon River and had the best guide ever! Thanks to Mike O. for making our first rafting adventure fun, safe and forever memorable! He was especially attentive to our 8-year-old daughter making sure that she didn't fall out of the raft. She didn't have a paddle, but he made sure she didn't feel left... More
