“First whitewater rafting experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Our family had our very first whitewater rafting experience with Big Creek Expeditions. It was the highlight of our vacation and our children who are 12, 9, & 8 are already asking when we will be returning. Our guide, Chris, was excellent! Thank you Big Creek Expeditions for making our vacation something we will always remember!

“Erin was great!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I had never been white water rafting, but my now husband (we were on our honeymoon) had been a couple times before. We are adventurious so we decided that this was what we wanted to do. It was great! We were there at the slower part of the season, so it was just my husband, me, and our guide Erin in the boat. We had a blast! The rapids were a lot of fun, and we even did a 360 through one of them. I cannot wait to do it again on our next vacation!

“Jen and Kevin we're great.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

This was our first visit to Tennessee and we decided try this out. We weren't sure what to expect but this company was very organized. Jen was our guide and she was very knowledgeable and made you feel safe. My kids enjoyed it. The kids were tired on the bus ride back but Kevin kept everyone entertained. Btw , thanks for the restaurant advice The Smokey Mountain brewery was great. Afterwards we were able to purchase a cd with our pictures on it. Let me say you will
not be disappointed when you come here. The rates are very reasonable too. We can't wait to come back. Thanks Jen and Kevin.

“Fun”

We booked our zip line and rafting through Big Creek. Both events were great. Our guides were professional and fun. We felt safe and entertained. We would go again.

“Jennifer made this trip fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

This is a great first white water rafting adventure. We have done this 4 or 5 times- each time bringing along "newbies." The trips are in 2 hour time frames (with a small discount for the late day trips), but that does include getting gear, safety instructions, bus ride. The river time is about 60 minutes and includes several grade IV and III rapids. If you're already done WV rafting trips this would probably seem tame, but for older rafters, very young rafters, or first timers it is a perfect and thrilling trip. Jennifer was our guide, and she a great job steering us into the fun parts or the river and keeping us out of the problem areas. She was able to haul in rafters who were bounced out of other rafts. Very fun. We will be back again.
