This is our second family trip to Gatlinburg in 5 years and this zipline was the best! Jedi Mike and Tucker were great guides. Safety is always first but this does not compromise a great time. My husband and I were matched with a large group of 8 strangers which was intimidating at first, but in the end the guides... More

We rolled into town about 15 miles away. Looked in the hotel lobby and found the pamphlet for white water rafting. We called and they said they were running. We picked the 3pm time, went shopping for some clothes to wear then headed out. Was met by a very pleasant staff. We were early and they talked to us about... More

This was our second trip with Wildwater on the Upper Pigeon River. Great guide (Jordan) who made the trip fun and exciting. Had a water release before we arrived so the river was great and Jordan threw everything at us we asked for. Do 360 in class 3 rapids was fun. Staff is always nice, helpful and fun. Nice safety...

My husband and I wanted to do zip lines and rafting all in one day since we were only visiting TN for four days. Wildwater rafting was the only place I could find that offered this package. We did the waterfall canopy tour, the safari jeep tour, and 5 mile rafting tour of the upper pigeon river. All of our... More

This was our first White Water Rafting adventure and we were very pleased with Wild Water Upper Pigeon River. The guides were entertaining while teaching rafting safety! The dam released water twice on the day we were there so we had a very exciting ride with Level 2, 3, and 4 rapids. It was a fun and exciting trip down... More

I rafted the Upper Pigeon with our Boy Scout troop on Saturday afternoon, September 6th, 2014. We had the best time ever! The facilities were good, the staff were friendly and helpful -- especially since we were a large group (more then 20) and the exact number in our party kept changing up to the last minute. The guides were... More

I understand you cannot control when the dam will release water, but you knew before we left that it was not going to happen. We should have been offered the chance to not go. Apparently the other companies did that since we were the only rafts on the river. Our guide Tom was excellent and made the uneventful trip interesting.

We had a family of 6 raft the upper Pigeon - 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 12 year olds. Wildwater was great and the entire process was operated effectively from the initial reservations to the end. I've actually used them several times over the years and have not been disappointed in the service.
