The guide Tim was awesome. He was very experienced and capable. Unfortunately I couldn’t really enjoy the trip due to the incredible stench of body odor emanating from the helmet straps and personal flotation device. Very gross. They need to be disinfected badly. I would not go on this trip again.

This is the second time I have used this company (20 years apart!), and was not disappointed at all! Our raft guide, Tom, was well acquainted with the French Broad river, and did everything to make sure we had the ultimate experience! He even cooked us all some lunch. We chose the 9 mile adventure because it included a couple of class IV rapids. The river was full of water, so it was truly exciting! ( I prefer this stretch of whitewater because of the remote feel. ) Wish I could go again tomorrow!

Second year with FBA. Took longer 9-mile lunch trip this year (last year did raft/zip combo with shorter raft trip) and had great time again. Our raft guide Jonah and trip leader Richard were excellent!

Staff is wonderful, guides are excellent! We raft often, so if you are experienced the French Broad River maybe a little slow, seem to be more 1-2’s with a few 3’s. Beautiful scenic views and water is warmer then some others. Jim, our guide, very knowledgeable and great story teller. This company is great and a great value. If you have small children, are a beginner, or just want to relax this is the trip for you.

Our family went out today on two rafts. Both our guides, Auggie and Tim were just awesome! Auggie was so knowledgable of the geology of the river and area. The whitewater wild! Our whole experience was phenomenal!
