This was an overall good experience and would have been 5 star if it hadn't been for our guide. Thomas was our guide and while he was knowledgeable and competent he was also very rude. First of all, he criticized a lot of what we did rather than telling us politely to change our tactics. Most of all, he comented... More

Although we thought we were headed for a morning of Whitewater Hiking, our rafting trip turned out to be very cool, thanks to our guide Kyle. Not only was he knowledgeable about navigating the river at low water levels (not a scheduled release day), Kyle was also skilled at maneuvering through areas that were technically challenging. The rapids were Class... More

Was here at same time in 2009 and was first white water rafting trip which I thought was great, but our guide RUSS, this 2016 Labor Day was even better.

Everyone had a wonderful time. The time on the river was close to 2 hrs and the rapids were class 3&4. The age for the kids were 8 and 11. It was perfect for our first timers. Our guide was great. Fun and knowledgeable. I would recommend this company to anyone.

We had an absolutely amazing time on the river!!!! Kyle made our trip even more memorable. If you want to have your best adventure down the river, get in his raft, but only if you want to laugh and have a good time. Can't wait to go again😆

Decided the day before that we wanted to go white water rafting and am very happy we did. Definitely the best thing we did while visiting Gatlinburg. Amy was our guide and she was spectacular. Ive gone once before but will definitely call ahead next time to request her. My friends and I all had a great time.

My husband and I white water rafted with this company for the first time last year and enjoyed it so much we came back this year. Our guide, Trent, was great! He allowed us to take turns sitting in the front, middle, and back of the raft. Very personable and would highly recommend.
