“Great Day of Caving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We went on a cave trip to Whorley's cave in TN. It was great! Something both beginners and experienced cavers could have fun doing. There was four in my group and we were paired up with another couple. We did get very muddy and wet and I ripped my pants but it was all worth it. Wear rubber boots if you can and bring a change of clothes for afterwards. The best part of the tour was our guides. They were very knowledgeable, fun, and entertaining. They knew how to challenge us but not push us past our comfort zone. They also gave great recommendations for things to do after the tour. It was a great day!

“Spelunking!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

My friends and I recently went on a caving trip to Whorley's Cave and it was so great! We did the half day trip which was perfect. It was not too strenuous, but you definitely get dirty. Our guide Brody was great, we had a lot of fun with him. I would definitely recommend River and Earth!

“This was our favorite adventure of our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had such a great time - the caves were awesome, the guides were fun, knowledgeable, playful, helpful. Our daughter (9) did great on the trip, but she's fairly adventurous. Don't do it if you worry about getting muddy!

“Definitely an Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

We went on the cave trip. It was more intense than we had expected, but it a great trip. The guides were great; very informative and helpful. I would definitely recommend to those seeking an adventure. You will get very muddy and wet. Also expect some bumps and bruises. We packed extra clothes in plastic bags. There are no changing areas, so be prepared.

“Fantastic day on French Broad Rafting Trip!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We had a group of 12, ages 5-55 and we had a blast on the French Broad River rafting trip with River and Earth Adventures. Most of us had never done this before so we were a little nervous about it. The guides we so nice and friendly. They went out of their way to make sure everything was safe and fun. We had two boats and Jordan and Brodie were our guides. They were great. Jordan was my guide and he kept us entertained the whole day with jokes, history of the river and just being friendly. He especially went out of his way to make the day special for my 8 year old granddaughter. He let us do special tricks on the river and was constantly letting us do different neat things with the boat. It was an awesome day and we definitely would do this trip again with this company. I especially would recommend Jordan as a guide. He was awesome and the whole experience was great!! Thanks!!!
