First time rafting on French Broad. One boat, one super guide Logan, 3 teens/pre-teens, 3 adults all first timer. Super day, really enjoyed the "custom" trip, paced to enjoy nature, discover different faces of rafting some daring when the boat surfs on rocks or on waterfalls 😬 all in full security. Experiencing jumps from rock, swimming in rapids, not rushing... More

While we were staying in Boone my friend suggested caving with River and Earth. I thought it would be similar to the commercial caves I've been in maybe just minus the sidewalks and railings. I was wrong. This was about a million times more fun than I thought it would be!!! Our guides Dave and Mac were absolutely fantastic! Dave... More

The first year we did the Watauga River with our guide Dave. We happened to bring our dog, worried to leave her alone at home, since she was just a puppy...We considered leaving her at the location where we set off for our adventure, but then feared that someone might take her. Dave came to the rescue- He suggested that... More

Our family just got back from a trip to Boone. We booked two trips with River and Earth and both were great. We booked trips both last minute and everyone was really helpful and willing to work with us. We tubed on the New River which was relaxing and fun. The next day we were going to take the rafting...

From the time that my wife and three grandchildren arrived at 10:00 a m, we were met by Dave and Josh and things only got better. We started with the trip to Worley Cave and ended up with a rafting trip down the Watauga River. The day was fantastic! My three grandchildren are still talking about the great time that... More

That word doesn't do the the time we had justice. Cave Dave was super awesome and made me feel like I could make it all the way to the attic, which we did!!! I would recommend this cave and fun kayak trip to anyone looking for an awesome adventure. We are already planning our next trip with Dave and going... More

We did a full day with lunch, guides were great, entertaining and informative on river and surroundings. The river was warm and extremely exciting. Our visiting 16 yr old niece from Hungary at the end of the trip said "best day of her life".

Josh was very friendly and an awesome tour guide! We "surfed" at one of the rapids and it was wonderful. They did a nice picnic lunch and we never fell out! Enjoyed cliff jump and swimming down baby rapid. He even stopped at the store on the way home for drinks and snacks. Great experience with my cousins from Chicago!

Ready for adventure. We as a family from Charlotte had not been white water rafting before. We picked a great company and crew to make our maiden voyage down the French Broad river. We had a great time. The crew ,Josh, Joshua and Logan (3 others, I forgot there names sorry)were great. They were knowledgable and most important personable. With... More
