“Seriously can't do better than Benji!”

Big Creek Expeditions
Ranked #6 of 16 things to do in Hartford
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We had five in our party, one a timid 13 year old and two of us had never gone white water rafting before. At first, I thought we were in trouble because our guide, Benji, was over the top excited and seemed a bit, shall we say, hyper. BUT, I have to admit, the trip wouldn't have been nearly as much fun without him. He was absolutely crazy and unforgettable, while at the same time kept us all inside the raft. If you go rafting in the area, you cannot go wrong with Big Creek Expeditions and you absolutely must ask for Benji as your guide! He may photobomb your picture ops, but even that was entertaining! "Makin Memories BABY!!! We loved you Benji!

Everything about this trip was rad. First of all we had a group of 20 people ages 11-65 so let's just say we were accommodating several physical fitness and swimming levels. Also this was everyone's first time white water rafting. The white water itself is not too hardcore and was the perfect level of fun and safe for all who participated. Everyone in my raft had Benji and we all loved him, he made the trip hysterical and we kind of wanted to kidnap him and take him back to our cabin to be our entertainer at our family reunion. Also we did this trip during the rainy 4th of July week. It didn't matter it is an activity that is great for rain or shine. The rain with the smoky mountains and surrounding vegetation made us feel like we were on an exotic adventure. You will get soaked definitely bring a change of clothes and towels for the car. Also bring a snack or drink because you are around 40-60 minutes from pigeon forge. Totally worth the drive and such a great value, I think it was 30 bucks per person what a steal!
