Our family had a fantastic time on the "snack" white water rafting trip. Our guide, Cory, was extremely capable and friendly. My husband, our 4 children (ages 8-16) and I had a blast and always felt safe. Fun stops along the way like rock jumping, swim rapids, and the snack stop allowed us to enjoy every aspect of the river... More

My wife's nephew and I have a fear of heights and thought this would be a way to overcome this phobia. The morning of the event he was petrified and was ready to cancel until my wife ensured him, everything will go fine. He acknowledge her comforting approach and developed the courage to GO For It! The staff are all... More

This was the first time I got to experience the thrill of zip lines which has been on my bucket list. Could not have chosen a better company to do this. Dicky and Peter were our guides and they were great, funny but also very professional in their jobs and making this a great experience for all. Definitely recommended for... More

My husband and I went on the half-day rafting trip that started in Marshall. Everything was very organized and smooth right from the start. Our rafting guide was Justin, and we thoroughly enjoyed him. Just enough history to make it educational, and just enough joking to make it fun! The river was gorgeous and the scenery was far better than... More

Coming to French Broad Rafting and Zip-lines was the highlight of my trip to Asheville! We were there all day rafting for 3 hours, then zip lining for another 3 hours. The rafting was fun but I have to say my favorite was the zip-lining. This was not my first time doing either but I think it was the most... More

The ziplining and white water rafting at French Broad is such a fantastic experience. The guides and all the staff are top rate - funny, accommodating and experienced in all aspects. I had Corey for rafting and Dickie, Mark & Peter for ziplining I would highly recommend anyone in the area give it a try.

Went as part of a group of 5 and had a great time. The water wasn’t very high but our guide made up for the lack of crazy water. If you go ask for Matthew and you won’t be disappointed. He gave us the best lines for the most fun and was a great guy. If you have the time... More

The zip line staff and guides are first rate! Everyone made us feel comfortable and safe as this was our first zip lining experience. They make an effort to get to know you on the down time and are funny as well. They have a well run operation and we will definitely use this company again. This past spring, we... More
