We celebrated my mothers 55th birthday with a rafting trip added to our agenda. Wow what a great ride. The experience was easy, fun and safe. Took four teenagers and they loved it. The scenery was great and the people were friendly and knowledgeable. I Love Rafting in the Smokies, thanks for the adventure.

Loved how fun and adventurous this was! We have an 11-year old and it was not too rough for her. Had a blast, got wet and got a workout...

Our guide was Tessa and with having always looked forward to trying white water rafting she did not disappoint. I consider myself an expert at canoeing but this was definitely a one of a kind experience and having Tessa as our guide enhanced our adventure. Her expert instruction and knowledge of reading the water (with a touch of southern charm)... More

Our daughter was turning 13 and we were trying to think of something that would usher in her teenage years with a bang. First things first: Please request BIRDMAN for your guide. He along with his beard (that he will happily throw in to pull you into the raft after a refreshing swim) was the perfect compliment to rafting down... More
