“First Time White Water Rafting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

My boyfriend and i visited from orlando, Fl we have never been white water rafting before. It was an amazing experience our guide Mike was awesome and very knowledgable about the area. We went early season rafting they were concerned that we wouldn't have as much fun because the damn wasn't letting out water but the water was still deep enough and a lot of fun. Staff was very friendly, area was clean would definitely recommend if visiting TN.

“Can't wait to do it again!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

We went to do our rafting trip in September with my friend and my 3 kids, 14,11&8. We went on the upper river tour, which is the "crazier" part and had a blast!!!!! Our guide Mike was amazing! He told us stories and history while we were on the river and let me tell you, there was never a dull moment!!
We "surfed" at one point, and quite honestly we were all scared that we were gonna flip, but we didn't and we loved it!!
My 14 year old was thrown out of the raft at one point, but Mike got her back in within seconds! The kids then all got to jump in and swim in the river. We all didn't want it to end!!
Thanks Mike for a great ride, we will be back!!!

“Great Trip, 5 Stars. Customer Service, no so much. 1 Star”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Our trip was great. Whole family had a blast. Our guide, Will, couldn't have been better. Just make sure you check your pictures before you leave. We received the wrong pictures and now they won't help us. I have called, emailed and facebooked and still no reply. Very Sad!!!!
