    Went with the kids and we all had a blast. Justin was a great guide and we really enjoyed the "surfing". Really liked that you could buy all the pictures, there were many of them and we can go print what we want.

    All the rafting companies are located in Hartford, Tn, which is barely a wide spot in the road. If you’re coming from Gatlinburg, your GPS will probably take you down Rt 32, which gets very narrow, can be exciting.

    You should but tickets ahead of time since the river rafting operators get busy during high season
