A great group of guys that go above and beyond to make sure you have a good time. The upper pigeon river adventure at 32.95 for 2 hours of fun is well worth it. Several class 3 and 4 rapids.

We did the 1/2 day trip on the French Broad River in September. The river was a little low, so the rapids were mostly class 2 or 3. It was a weekday, so the four of us had a raft to ourselves with an excellent guide who gave us a great history of the river. He also proved to be adept at rescue when one of our party fell out of the raft going over the rapids. In all, it was a really fun trip and I highly reccoment USA Raft!

Our group of 4 had been white water rafting last year on the Snake River in Wyoming. This white water trip was much more action-packed! We did the 1/2 day trip. Our guide Tim was great. One of our party went over the side of the raft in one of the rapids. Tim performed a successful rescue in a skilled, calm manner. Tim was also very knowledgeable about the River and it's history,
Our other guide Duck was also very good supporting us from the kayak.
We would definitely recommend this white water trip as a fun-filled adventure while in the Asheville area.

Super trip. Duck was an excellent guide. He was well trained and humorous. The trip was on a beautiful part of the river. We all wanted to do it again. My wife our two sons (16 and 19) and I had not been rafting before and weren't sure what to expect. A great adventure for all of us. Be sure to put it on your bucket list.
