Second time rafting with this company and both experiences were awesome!! We had an awesome guide named Huneycutt who made sure we had the best experience. I highly recommend this company if you are looking for an awesome adventure on your vacation to the Smoky Mountains or even if you live here like us.

We chose to do the extreme rafting adventure today. Smaller raft made the trip more fun and exciting. Even the smaller rapids were awesome. Our guide Huneycutt did a great job. Even when one of us fell out of the raft, he did a great job of guiding us to pull her back in. A great guide makes the trip... More

Everyone there was wonderful and very easy to deal with. We had a group of 6, with only 1 of us being an experienced rafter. We had 2 kids with us, which is what had my nerves on end, but our guide was awesome! He took great care of us, explained everything thoroughly and we ended up having the time... More

We had the zip & raft combo with Foxfire Mtn, and we came to USA Raft super early. They were glad to change our time so we didn't have to wait so long. Richard, aka "Oatmeal" was our tour guide. He was very talkative and friendly. We surfed, and had an opportunity to swim, which was fantastic on a SUPER... More

I've been rafting several times and this was by far the best experience!! I think a huge part of that was due to our guide, Ewok. He was so great and made our experience exciting and adventurous. Thank you for a great experience and hospitality.

I reserved my rafting tour through a combination offer with Foxfire Adventures zipline tour, which was a great decision. When I arrived at the USA Raft facility (which is an old school), I was offered an upgrade for $10 to take a smaller raft with a highly experienced guide. This turned out to be the best $10 I could have... More

My Fiancée and I had a great, exciting rafting trip guided by Ewok from USA Raft. We took one of the smaller rafts with just us and the guide. He was very professional and skilled in his abilities and obviously very much enjoys what he does! Highly recommend.
