“You Must Do This!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

This is a small family run operation that definitely caters to its guests. We had an amazing adventure on the water. Merielle was our guide, and she was great with our kids and very knowledgeable

“What a blast!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012 via mobile

This was a great place to whitewater raft, we were a 2 family group and this was our 2nd time rafting. Nice clean place and very friendly!!!! Our guide Chris Shealy made sure everyone had a great time even our 10 year old. Our guide was very professional and informative about the river and safety proceedures but had a great personality that worked well with our crazy families which was awesome!!!! He made sure everyone was equally wet and was the best raft trip by far. Great price and great fun, you can't go wrong!!!!

“Best Time ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

we went on a mother daughters trip and had the best time ever rafting. Robert is the office was so nice and great to deal with. Our four teenagers were in their own raft with Bubbles who was awesome. The girls had the best first experience of rafting ever and an experience they will always remember. Bubbles was a great guide!! Us four moms had another raft with Reno as our guide and we had a spectacular rafting trip. The entire experience was sooo much fun and we all enjoyed the entire trip. We truly recommend Appalachian Outdoors to anyone interested in rafting. Robert and trhe rest of the office staff was spectacular and extremely helpful with all our needs.

“Fun and wet time on the Pigeon River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

We purchased this rafting tour with a Groupon discount. I have rafted with many different outfiters on a variety of rivers. I thought that they did a real nice job. Our raft guide was named Ewok and he was a lot of fun. You take a ride to the put in (where the rafting starts), but the ride ends back withing walking distance to the outfitters. They will also take pictures of you on the river. There is an additional fee if you want a CD of your photos. Though the Pigeon River is not the most challenging of rivers to raft, my husband and I still had a great time.

“Disrespectful”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

They made us wait an extra 40 minutes on people who were late. I think this is poor customer service and disrespectful to customers who arrive on time.
