Some Comments from our Rafting and Zipline Guests:

“What a great day I had today with my friends rafting and then ziplining afterward. Everyone should try to fit this in to their Smoky Mountain Vacation! Thank you Rafting in the Smokies for a great experience I won’t soon forget! :)”

“Thank you “Elsie” for helping me plan our vacation! The adventures that you scheduled for all 10 of us, and two babies was amazing! We enjoyed every minute of it, and Thanks to “Scott” and “Jason” who were the guides, provided fun, yet a safe trip for all of us!! The facilities are wonderful and really give that authentic TN feeling… We can’t wait to come back:)”

“We just took our second rafting trip, the river guides were awesome, entertaining and very knowledgeable of the pigeon river and surrounding areas. I would recommend Rafting in the Smokies rafting adventures to all my friends. We took our 8 yr old niece, and our friend from Denmark, both trips were exciting…the upper falls are as good as other white water I have done. GO WHITE WATER RAFTING ….Great times!”

“We had a great time! Eric two stars was our guide. We are kinda of a shy family, he was very friendly and made us all smile and feel comfortable it was fun! Would definitely recommend.”

“We did the rapids on August 7th, Seth was our guide… Great time, and lots of fun. Would definitely do it again.. Family of 9 in our group and we were all very happy. First time visiting Tennessee and plan to return next summer for a family reunion, I will be reccommending Rafting in the Smokies to the whole family. We can not wait to come back next year.”

“This was by far the most fun experience we had in Gatlinburg. The guides were fun and funny and knowledgeable. The white water was a blast – but not too over exerting for any family members you may have. The company was well organized both in the water and during the ride to the drop off point. Even the safetly talk was entertaining. We all highly recommend this trip! Had we known it was going to be so fun, we might have done this twice while in Gatlinburg. Worth every penny and this was in no way the most expensive thing we did while in Gatlinburg, so WELL worth every penny.”

“This was the first experience rafting for my 8 and 12 year old kids. They had a blast. We did the Upper Pigeon Forge which had some Class 3 and 4 rapids. Our guide Jay was wonderful. He was very informative and safety conscious. All the staff at Rafting in the Smokies was friendly and helpful. My family is definitely coming back and would highly recommend this company.”
L. Arazz

“We just got back from a whitewater rafting trip. We had so much fun! Tuna was our guide and he was so funny. This company takes safety seriously. I never once felt scared. A lot of companies use the same section of the river and when we passed other rafts, none seemed to be having as much fun as we were. All guides were professional and great. Would definitely use this company again!”

“My husband and I went on a raft trip with this company and we had a great time!! The scenery is beautifull, the guides are fun and the class 3 & 4 rapids are ideal for an entire family. Furthermore, this is one of the most exciting and afordable things to do around Gaitlinburg. We highly suggest this trip and we will be back again!”

“We went with a group of 22 and our ages went from 3 to 75 and we did the upper and lower and some in the group did the zip, what a great time and the staff at Rafting in the Smokies is wonderful, I had called and made reservations but had to change some the day we where rafting and they where very helpful and kind. This was my first time rafting and I did the lower and really enjoyed it, so much fun. Our guide Kat had taken some of our group on the upper and they thought so much of her that they requested her for our lower trip which included my 3 yr old great nephew. Would highly recommend them.”

“My husband and I just finished a day with Rafting in the Smokies. They are very organized and the guides are so much fun. Our guide Creech gave us an extra thrill. We had a group that liked a little bit more challenge and he gave it to us. If you have a chance check it out.”

“I Traveled with a group of 20 of my family members and everything from the reservations, to the checkin, to the guides, to the actual rafting was absolutelt awesum!!!(not to mention the incredible photographers, see attached photos) I read reviews on the trip advisor for every trip I take and iI can assure you, this one is a “Not to Miss” rafting experience. We all loved it!!!”

“How can you go wrong. Tennessee..White water rafting= a totally rewarding and invigorating experience. My fiance and I went rafting last spring and had a blast. The people are professional, nice, and very enthusiastic. My fiance is not a strong swimmer and our raft leader provided support which help ease his nerves. We can’t wait to go back!”
