“A trip we will never forget”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Our family of five all had never been rafting. We chose Hick Finn because their website was very easy to use. We arrived and loved the town of Hot Springs immediately. The crew explained everything and we were on our way. Our guide was Sierra and she was awesome! So good with our 3 kids. Sierra guided us through the river and answerd all our questions and taught us about the area. We had the thrill of our ride when it started to rain pretty hard and we continued on. Sierra was always calm and therefore we were too! We purchased the cd of photos and will be talking about this adventure for years to come. Thanks to Huck Finn we started off as first timers but can't wait for our next trip!

“Huck Finn Excellent”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

I went with my wife and thirteen year old daughter. We made our reservations in advance and arrived 30 minutes early as recommended. Our trip consisted of 4 rafts. We were to do the 9 mile trip but because of low rain we were only able to do the shorter trip. Huck Finn is located on the main street in Hot Springs, which is a beautiful small mountain town. Their location is perfect and facilities are very nice. We were immediately checked in by friendly staff. We loaded up on the bus with the rafts on the roof platform and headed to the put in location about 20 minutes away. The ride was nice. At the put in site the guides broke us up into rafts and gave a safety and instructional talk. We then entered the French Broad River. Our guide Travis was wonderful. He has a great personality and did a great job making our trip exciting and fun. The rafts were of very high quality top of the line, the life vests were fairly new. Everything was in great condition. We had an opportunity to pull the rafts to the side and climb up rocks and jump off into the river. The river offers beautiful scenery and some whitewater excitement. Our trip lasted about 3 hours. After our trip we had a nice lunch at the little Cafe next door.
We had such a great time that we returned the next day and took the unguided tube float trip down another section of the river. The float trip took about 1 hour 15 minutes and had some nice rapids as well as some gentle relaxing floating. Again, Huck Finn provided excellent high quality service.

“Fantastic Tour and Day”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

I bought a groupon for this, and took the 2-3 hr guided tour. My boyfriend and I were paired with another couple on the raft, and a guide. I think our guide's name was Allen, and he was awesome! Highly recommend him for a fun and enjoyable ride. The day turned out to be a beautiful day--so, we were in luck. The rafting ride itself depends on the current of the river. But, we had a few exciting rapids. The ride was pretty calm. Highly recommend as a weekend trip. They even have water shoes, and anything else you could possibly need if you forget it before or after your trip.
