Although I really don't like heights I went on this tour with my wife and boys (ages 14 and 11). We had a great time and everyone with the company was great - especially Doug our guide. Water and Hot Chocolate awaited us after we wrapped up. It's worth the money and quite a thrill. We even went on a... More

I wanted something to celebrate my wife's birthday that would take her out of her comfort zone. (She is not the adventurous type). I chose the Bridge Walk after hearing very favorable comments about the walk. I didn't tell her where we were going until we got there! She actually agreed to do it. Our guide (Doug) was fantastic and... More

The bridge walk is a fun and different trip to take. The guide was interesting an new his stuff. The views from underneath the bridge of the George are amazing. I would defiantly recommend the bridge walk.

This was a surprise for my birthday and boy, was it awesome?!?!?!?! I had so much fun doing this, even though my group had to turn around within the first 10 feet because one of our group members became extremely terrified. I felt bad for her but didn't mind to get to do the beginning again. The tour guide Logan... More

The view from the catwalk on the bridge was amazing and breathtaking. We had a great tour guide with us and he was very knowledgeable. We will visit this area again. Highly recommend!!!

We had never done anything like this before and had looked forward to this part of our trip. We were not disappointed. The day was a little cool but we dressed for it and it was awesome. We are not afraid of heights but it was amazing to be walking under a bridge and hear the vehicles above you, especially... More

It's a very pretty view and worth the walk.... You just have to remember you have to walk back up the stairs! It's truly a breathtaking experience in person. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Where else will you have the opportunity to walk under a major bridge and peer down 531' to the river below? The answer to this is why we took the tour, gladly shelling out $140+ for the opportunity. I'm not that fond of heights myself, but found that standing close to my tour partner or putting my hand on his... More

A group of us (6 in total) were in the area for a family wedding and decided to go on the bridge walk. For those who are not familiar with it, you walk across a 24 inch steel catwalk, with railings, underneath the largest arch bridge in the country. At the center, where it crosses the New River, you are... More

but oh so worth doing. I challenged myself to do the bridge walk and recommend others do the same. The was another woman on our tour that had some trepidation, as I did. By the middle of the bridge we were high-fiving! We even dangled our feet over the edge while sitting on the catwalk. Doug, our guide, was both... More
