Nice staff with a lot of helpful hints. Just be sure to check the river level before you go. Too low and you end up doing a lot of work and getting stuck on the ledges and rock Too high and you may miss the beauty of the scenery as you float past too quickly.

Had a great time with Matt and John. I drove a UTV with my 13 year old and my husband and son rode ATVs and found the course quite challenging.

Had a wonderful time with "Uncle Tom" fishing. He knew where to go, what to use and how to do it. My daughter caught a 10lb catfish (with a little help from Tom:) ) and that really made the trip! All the perch and bass were fun too! A nice relaxing fishing trip on a nice boat with a great... More

Went recently for a bachelor party to do ATV riding and shooting. We had 13, so our group got split up into three smaller groups. The shooting.... If you have never shot a gun before, you'd probably enjoy it. For those who own guns, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. For what our group paid for shooting ($100/each x 13), we... More

We used them for ATV rentals. Our guide, Jimmy, was awesome. I would definitely recommend them. Make sure you do it for at least 2 hours.

Our family has a reunion every 3 years. We meet on vacation and given that there are 30 of us now, we make reservations months in advance to make sure everything runs as scheduled. We made our reservation with Crystal under my sister's name, Marcia Cook. Marcia lives in England but she made 2 international calls to ensure our reservation... More

Luray was FANTASTIC and is a must see with your family. It is a perfect, family friendly place. Get there early though, si that you won't have to wait long in lines.

We had an awesome time today with Francesca as our guide !! I would ask for her next time. It was my first time ever on an ATV where as my 16 year old son had ridden before. She explained everything and made sure we were comfortable on the machines. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will budget for a longer... More

I tried for a month to make reservations, finally reached them and made the reservations, and then found out days before the trip that they had cancelled the trip without notifying me. It seems they struggle to stay organized.

Appalachian Adventures does not recognize this person's name, and we've requested the removal of this suspicious comment. The staff and co-workers claim not dealing with this person. We find that those who do not follow procedures, book without becoming informed, or don't read the contracts, find it easy to discredit and find fault in others. We are also sorry that... More

This is a small but remarkably complete shop, with really good products, free wifi, friendly workers who know their stuff and the area. Has a free exchange box for AT thru hikers and provides great service for them. A very pleasant shopping experience.
