Had a great trip down the lower Pigeon River today with the "Reverend" Dean. He was a great raft guide - provided us with a fun and safe adventure suitable for the whole family. Even gave us some extra thrills once he saw we could handle it. Look forward to a future ride with him on the upper falls!

Me and my friend Sandy was here today..I have been here two other times and will not go anywhere else! Randy was great, knowledgeable and a very safe guide..I must admit I got scared several times but with his commands on rowing and directions we had a fun, safe, exciting time..You must try the upper rafting,I think you'd be bored...

It was our first time rafting and Alf/Alfonzo was an awesome tour guide. He was very welcoming and made the nervous ride exciting! We are very excited to return!

We had an awesome time on the upper pigeon river yesterday. Our guide, Stanley, was great, telling us about the surrounding area and pointing out flora and fauna. We have been rafting before in the northeast but Stanley did things with us we haven't done before, like going down the rapids while spinning the raft. He also took the time... More

First rafting experience but certainly not the last. This was a great experience thanks to Stan. He kept us very entertained and even pointed out some historical facts. I would recommend Smoky Mountain Outdoors. - Team Chitown 8

We had a great time rafting in the smoky mountains. Most of our group were first time rafters, but Randy made sure we were comfortable and relaxed. He took the time to point out trees, surroundings and birds. He's very knowledgeable and made sure we had a wonderful experience. I'd definitely recommend Smoky Mountain Outdoors to family & friends.

I was nervous about the trip. For reference I am 50 years old, semi fit and this was my first time white water rafting. They were very organized on the front end, we signed in early and left on the bus ride prior to our original time which was great. There were 6 of us together and we were teamed... More
