We did the Upper Pigeon Forge River trip and was so much fun. The lower is more like a lazy river for your FYI. We had "Snake" as our tour guide; very nice and conversational. We felt he knew the river and knew what he was doing and were not concerned at any time. Well worth the trip and expense.

My wife and I took our 8 and 11 year old son and daughter. Dawn was our river guide and she did a great job keeping us informed, safe, and having fun. We've canoed before but very mild water with no rapids. The rapids were a blast and the kids want to go back! Be prepared to do some paddling.... More

This was my son's first rafting trip (age 9) and Polly made this the best experience for his first time rafting. Fantastic guide, knowledgeable and made me feel safe enough to not worry about son on the river. Thanks Polly you were an amazing guide.

Our family of four (including a 7yo and a 4yo) went on the Lower trip with Dustin. Grandma also came. He did a great job training us and accommodating our needs and abilities. He told amusing jokes and interesting facts about the area along the trip. Highly recommend this trip and this guide!
