“Misleading start time but excellent trip”

Be advised that the start time on your reservation is the beginning check in time and the trip orientation occurs 30 minutes later, After instruction and travel time, you get in the river appx one hour after your reservation. Other than that, the trip was great. Our guide had only been doing these trips for a few months and had no prior experience but he got us through the trip with no mishaps. That says a lot about their training program.

Although my wife and I have canoed many times this was our first experience at white water rafting. Big Creek Expeditions and our guide Chris couldn't have done a better job at making it a great time. I would recommend Big Creek to anyone who is thinking of rafting the Pigeon River. Kudos to the entire staff of Big Creek, they were all very friendly and helpful. A very special thanks to Chris, your awesome.

I would recommend Big Creek Expeditions white water rafting trips to anyone! There are so many outfits to choose from and I'm very glad we choose this one! We had a party of 10 (teen boys and girls with a couple of adults) and they grouped us to maximize the fun. The boys were together and had a lot of fun with their guide, while the girls and us adults were in another raft and our guide could tell we were a bit nervous and was very reassuring. They have a personal staff that answered our questions very professionally. When we asked our group what the best thing about their trip (and we did a lot of other things while in Gatlinburg) and they all answered "white water rafting"!

We had to wait about 30 minutes past our scheduled time however once we got going, we got on the river promptly. We like we had a raft just for our group, our guide was very helpful and pleasant. My kids wanted to go again or try the bigger rapids( we just did the lower section). We would consider going again for sure.

First time experience for our family. Chris assisted us to enjoy this experience to the max. We were all first timers and the trip was a blast. Thouroughly enjoyed by all. Great picture package with smiles all around.
