I highly recommend French broad adventures of you are looking to have a blast rafting and zip lining!! We ragged the first day and our guide was Richard! I would recommend requesting him for sure. He was by far the best guide they have! The water level was pretty low so didn't get to do some of the bigger Rapids... More

Traveling with my sister & friends 2 weeks ago and we decided to try ziplining. So happy we ended up here with a local family-owned company and not with one of the corporate companies offering ziplining around Asheville! Josh & Kate were so welcoming and put all of us first-timers at ease right away. We all had a blast! Loved... More

these guys do a great job. The guides are personable, entertaining and even give a sense of competence. We had an amazing time on a beautiful day. Not the greatest rapids I've ever been on (in)...but it was really a nice experience with a group of friends.

Had a fantastic time both rafting and ziplining with French Broad Rafting and Ziplines. Great guides (Josh for Rafting and Lee and Kate for Ziplines) made both activities a ton of fun. It seemed they had just as much fun as the rest of us even though they do it all the time. I couldn't recommend them more and hope... More

Alec and Josh were our guides for the Zip tour- beyond amazing! Had the best time! Would do this again! The guides really had fun with our group and that made the experience that much more. This was my first time zipping with my sister and her best friend and I can't wait to do this again! Totally recommend!

We went ziplining for the first time, it was an awesome experience. Guides Josh & Alec were great at explaining the how's. There was a photographer and she did a great job as well. I highly recommend and would definitely go again. Just a note it is not auto braking so you will have to work! For us that just... More

So, a few of us decided to get together for a nice weekend getaway in Asheville. We all live in different areas: 2 from Charleston, SC-The Princess & The Mandie, 1 from Greenville, SC- The Scaredy Cat, and finally 1 from Blowing Rock, NC- The crazy weirdo with no filter. Let's just say we had no idea how much fun... More

Since none of us had been rafting before, we weren't sure about what to expect. Our guide, Tim, took great care of us, and he made the trip a lot of fun. He had a great sense of humor, and he shared a lot of interesting information with us. We did the 5 mile trip, but next time, we'll try... More

During our weekend trip to Asheville, we decided to try our hands at white water rafting. We will never regret that decision!! With two other couples, the six of us hopped in a raft with our guide Jim and proceeded for an amazing 4 hour adventure full of 360 spins (Jim's "Panoramic Views) and running the raft up a rock...
