Did the upper pigeon and really enjoyed the trip. Alf, our guide, was very informative and got us thru the rapids with no issues. We were actually the safety raft and he made sure everyone from our group made it they the class 4's with no problems. The only negative comment i have is that there was 8 in our... More

We had a great time my wife and myself. We did the top half of the river and had Wes as our guide. He was a pretty fun guide. He let us splash other rafts and even did some extra spinning and stuff during the trip. I would have to say that while on the river some of the other... More

This was our first time but we wanted some thrills and that what we got. Stanley was an awesome guide. He gave us plenty of excitement twisting and turning the raft throughout the rapids with plenty of splash and laugh adventures. This is a must do on your vacation to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. All the staff were very friendly.... More

The upper Pigeon River trip was lots of fun. Our guide Stanley seemed very experienced although he said it was just his second trip on the river! ( hahaha He was just teasing us). He was very knowledgable about the river and the area and gave us tips on cool places to go to in the area. We felt very... More

I was NOT looking forward to this trip at all, the scaredy cat I am, but it turned out to be a blast for both me and the thrill seekers in our group. Our guide, Amelia, was B.A. - knowledgeable about the area and she knew exactly how to approach every rapid for maximized fun. Would recommend this company and... More

We had a great time white water rafting. Our guide, Chris was knowledgeable and fun. The entire place is very well run.There were a lot of people and everything ran smoothly and on schedule. The scenery was beautiful, the rapids were great! We would highly recommend Smoky Mountain Outdoors. My family (kids 19, 19, 20) had a blast!

This was a lot of fun but not nearly as thrilling as we might have expected. There were some Class IV rapids, but not as much as we had thought. The guides were great and the trip was a lot of fun. I think any age would be able to handle this trip and absolutely no prior experience would be... More

Our family, my sister's family, and my brother & his wife vacationed in Gatlinburg, TN. Our main purpose was to do an active, adventurous vacation. We all had done white-water rafting before; so we decided to it again. We chose Smokey Mountain Outdoor Adventures. Throughout the whole time, our experience was very professional. We were so pleased with the service.... More
