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

We had such a great day on the river!!! Our guide Dave, was knowledgeable, friendly, and so good with kids. We went down the Watauga, which was a perfect introduction to rafting for our young son. I will definitely be booking another trip with River and Earth Adventures!

Full disclosure: I am a very adventurous, early 20s guy, who will do anything that gets my adrenaline pumping. I find it helpful to know a reviewers background when researching places. Our guide, Ian, was stellar. His knowledge of the area as well as the cave system was second to none. We got a 3 hour tour of whorley's cave... More

Grant and Mack had enough tandem kayaks for a whole group of 12. He had a huge age range from 3-66 that day - and everyone had an amazing time on the river. We put in at Todd Island and took out at their outpost. It was a perfect amount of time for the big group we had. Thanks to... More

Did the class 1-2 portion of the watuga river. Our guide, Carson, was great. He stopped for the kids to jump off a rock overhang into the river. He stocked the boat with water squirters (which my daughter LOVED!). Since we booked at the last minute, my husband and son (10yrs old) went on funyaks and my 2 daughters (4... More
