My wife and 3 kids booked a cave rafting combo on a days notice. Not sure what we were going to see. First was the cave. My 2 boys 6 years old and 10 years old got to help lead the hike with our guide in the cave. Our guide was so patient, caring, and very safe with the boys.... More

The guide makes everything! Our guide, Josh was wonderful and we had a great time. We did the whole day tour and he packed a nice lunch for us and included random stops so we could swim and jump off rocks. He also added in a few twists to the rafting experience that I had never experienced before like surfing... More

Explored Worley cave with a guy named Dave. The cave system is completely primitive. If you are looking for lights and pathways, this is not the trip for you! Go to Linville Caverns. If you are ready for a true adventure, book it with River and Earth. The guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. There is a subterranean river, stalactites... More

The company is pretty disorganized. I called and explained I had never been to the area and never been tubing so wasn't sure how it worked. They told me check in at the office off 105. I was there 20 minutes before my appointment time. Then they give me a map and tell me to go about 20 minutes away... More

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
