Awesome trip - our guide Tom was very funny and knew a lot of history about the area. You could tell that he had been doing this for a long time with his skill level.

Our white water rafting trip was a lot of fun. Our guide, Katherine, was funny and told stores of the rivers history. She was very good with our 8 year old grandson. We will definitely use this company again but for a longer rafting trip.

So fun! What an adventure- we want to go back again for a longer ride. The guides couldn’t have been nicer to the kids (ages 9&11) and adults

Awesome day! Our guides, Sam and Becca, were amazing, fun and safe. They made everyone in our group feel comfortable and at ease with the lines. Safety was perfect. Great scenery. Would definitely recommend for a fun afternoon activity in the Asheville area for families.
