Rafting in the Smokies Reviews
We had a great time with our guide, Chase. Lower Pigeon River Float. Just enough excitement for our first time rafting. Beautiful views, great instruction, well organized experience. Def recommend!! more »
We rafted the lower pigeon river in late July (my husband, 6yr old daughter, 8 yr old son and myself). Ellinor was our guide and she was fantastic! She made it fun with small tricks along the way... more »
Great time, the staff was very friendly and our guide Heather was great. Make sure they are doing damn release before booking trip.
Our experience was fantastic with this company! Our guide was "Sammy Davis" He was very knowledgeable and funny! He made every minute of the trip something to remember! We did however have an issue with another rafting company while we were on the water. To put it simply, we were "surfing" in the rapids and a guide from another company steered their boat directly into the face of my child. In addition to endangering our boat, the other company lost one of their passengers when their boat dislodged off of ours. We are fortunate that we were not injured and our guide was sure to make us feel safe after the fact. I am sure it was harrowing for the other company and I am still a little perturbed that someone would endanger the passengers of both companies by doing what they did. When I explained what happened to Mrs. Brenda after we returned to the office, she made every effort to make sure we were OK and before we ultimately left, she even gave us some peaches. Hey, Mrs Brenda, the peaches were awesome! We will recommend this company to everyone we know! Thanks!
