My husband and I came with our 5 kids a few weeks ago. I am in a wheelchair and this company went above and beyond to ensure my family and I made memories on this trip. They assured me that if I felt like I couldn't make the whole trip down the river, that someone would be there to pick... More

do not... I repeat... do not waste your money by rafting with the NOC. overpriced and boring trip. The price is RIGHT at Adventurous and the employees at Adventurous go out of their way to make it a great experience. we've already used them twice and will never use anyone else.

The water is always cold due to the water coming from the bottom of the dam that controls the water. So be ready to get wet, a little cold, and have the time of you life. Even in low water it is fun. Can always eat here afterwards or have a drink and some great food while watching others.

We had a wonderful time on the river with this company! We were first timers and had a guided raft. The guide was knowledgeable and returns every year to work for the same owners. Ask for Steven. I even saw an active 60 year old on her first trip so don't be shy if you aren't a younger person.

This was a great experience. We all had a blast rafting. My husband decided to guide since it was more expensive to pay for a guide to go with you. None of us fell out of the raft. The water was really cold, but it was definitely worth it to go down the rapids.

Rafted at 2pm. Boots was our guide. Super friendly, chill, & funny, & helped us do fun things on the river. Next time I'd go earlier, when they say they river can rush faster.

We have visited Bryson City over the past 3 years and this was by far one of the best adventures we have experienced. Adventurous Fast Rivers staff was funny, accommodating, and on time with their schedule. I would request Boots as a guide. He made the experience comical and shared some history of the area. He looks like Johnny Depp... More
