“Wow....we did White Water Raftingf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

My husband and I were on vacation for our 29th wedding anniversary and my husband decided he wanted to go White Water Rafting. I wasn't really looking forward to it, and was a little scared, but we did it. It was unbelievable and we thoroughly enjoyed it and both of us said we'd do it again.

“Smoky Mountain rafting on Pigeon River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

My wife and I took the rating trip thru Smoky Mountain Rafting. Chris was our excellent guide, telling us about the rapids and history of the river. two young boys were in the raft with us and their parents. Chris took extra care with them, teaching them how to paddle and letting them swim in the portion of the river that was calm. I highly recommend this company and Chris.

“First time visitor.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

It was our first trip to the Smokies and 2 people recommended Pigeon Forge; we were NOT disappointed. Depending on which hotel you choose, you could walk to some of the shows. It's a long strip loaded with fun things to do and see and all with the beautiful mountains for a backdrop.

“Great Smoky Outdoors Whitewater Rafting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Just went rafting in the rain and it was a blast. Our guide Fletch kept us entertained and really knew his way around the water. Lots of companies in the area but SMO seemed to be the best put together with great facilities out there. Some class 4's but felt like mostly class 2's and 3's. be sure to ask for Fletch!

“White water rafting with Great Smoky Outdoors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We had the best Lower Pigeon River experience with Attila from Great Smoky Outdoor. It was our children's first time rafting (ages 9.8 and 6) and he was very kind to us and was appropriately concerned about our safety. It was a great first experience! I highly recommend Attila from Great Smoky Outdoor rafting. The entire operation was first class and well run. There are lots of rafting companies to choose from but go with Great Smoky Outdoors.
