Big Frog is a well run company and they have great experienced guides. I would highly recommend them for their expertise and care for their clients. We are senior citizens and they put us with the most experienced guide and a trainee. We enjoyed ourselves so much we want to go back!

We used a different company, however our guide, Chuck Virciglio, regularly works for Big Frog- he was just helping out this day. We had 2 adults, 2 children, and did the upper and lower Ocoee. Chuck was amazing with our daughter, who is on the small side. He kept her close to him for safety, but gave her several jobs so she felt like she was doing her part. He knew the river well and is funny with lots of stories. We had a trilling ride, and never felt like he wasn't in control. I would defiantly do both the upper and lower together. It takes about 6 hrs total with a lunch break, and is the best value. The next time we go we will definitely use Big Frog because of Chuck.

We take our church youth group whitewater rafting each summer and always use Big Frog. They have a great staff who is always professional and clean-cut. The facility is nice and clean.

We've rafted in this region a number of times, but Big Frog is definitely the most accommodating, friendly outfit we've dealt with! They were generous with fitting our larger party in, our guide Joey was fabulous, and the swollen Ocoee couldn't have given us more thrills the day of our launch! Thank you all so very much! Y'all know the true meaning of SERVICE!!!!!

My wife and I took the kids to go rafting and were looking forward to the full day trip. Unfortunately the rain did not agree and they closed down the whole river that day. However Big Frog and Rob, the manager, was great and worked to schedule us for the next day which we were only allowed to raft the middle section. Our guide, "Mayo" was very nice and skilled and worked with the four of us to get the raft in position to enjoy the surfing and other benefits of rafting on the Ocoee. I fully recommend Big Frog as the outfit to use. Oh yeah we are going back in September just to do the full river rafting experience and will go with Big Frog to do that.
