I cannot recommend this trip highly enough! Not only did I have the time of my life rappelling down a gorgeous 150-foot waterfall, but the guides also took us to two awesome rock slides on the way back. The guides were professional and I felt completely safe doing this activity. But here’s where I was really blown away: I accidentally left a bag full of my wet clothing at the outfitter’s and didn’t realize it until it was well past closing time. I had to leave for home early the next day. I thought I’d never see those clothes again. But the amazing folks at French Broad Adventures actually went out of their way to mail my stuff back to me, and they didn’t even charge me for the shipping! You don’t see service like that anymore. Stop deliberating and sign up for one of the awesome adventures with this amazing company!

What a great time! My new spouse had never been whitewater rafting, and Shawn made her feel quite comfortable during our adventure. COVID rules limited boat to the two of us plus guide, but it was well worth the incremental cost. River was high and running fast because of recent rains, so that we finished the trip in half the expected time.

I was concerned as to how our 8 yr old and 15 yr old “not so nature loving” boy would do on this trip, but we all had the best time. Jim was an excellent guide. He couldn’t have been nicer or more knowledgeable. Everyone at French Broad was super nice and stocked with everything we needed, including free use of splash guard clothing. We can’t wait to go again!

It was a blast despite the scary high water level due to lots of rain. I’ve never seen the French Broad that wild! Our guide, Justin, provided great info and instruction. He was in total control and help put us at ease. This definitely was the highlight of our trip to Asheville! Just wished it could’ve lasted longer or that we could’ve done it all over again!

The trip was amazing and the guide was amazingly nice! We got off the raft with giant smiles, and a lot more knowledge about the history of the river.
