Another Summer in the Smoky Mountains has come and gone, and while we’re still offering white water rafting trips throughout the Fall, we’d like to reflect on some of our favorite customer reviews from the 2017 rafting season.
Because the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the country, we get to meet people from all across the United States and the world. Some of them are experienced rafters, hikers and outdoorsmen — others have never even seen a river before. We love exposing first-timers to the fun and beauty of the outdoors, and hope our trips will encourage both children and adults to explore the world around them.
In 2017, Raft Outdoor Adventures received another TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence! This achievement celebrates businesses who’ve consistently achieved glowing traveler reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year. Here are just a few of our favorites:
rantarlovin from Roanoke, Virginia:
“This was our first time white water rafting. We were able to do Class I-IV rapids! Our tour guide Willis did a fabulous job instructing us, keeping us safe — and it was very fun to experience this adventure with him. I would recommend this facility for their excellent services.”
_rhames02 from Colgate, Wisconsin:
“I would highly recommend Raft Outdoor Adventures. They provided an amazing and safe experience. Our guide AJ was awesome and provided an adventure of a lifetime. We can’t wait to head back to the Smoky Mountains and raft again with Raft Outdoor Adventures.”
bethstowe2 from Virginia Beach, Virginia
“This was our first time white water rafting, and we were a little anxious/nervous. I am so glad we chose Raft Outdoor Adventures, because they were AWESOME! From the moment you get there till the moment you leave, they make sure you have an amazing experience. We are in our mid-fifties and we LOVED every single minute. Buy the pictures at the end … we were amazed at how awesome they turned out! Probably one of the most exciting 2 hours we’ve ever had!”
paijtaj from Huntsville, Alabama
“We have rafted the Pigeon River before with other larger companies, but this trip was our most enjoyable experience. This ‘mom and pop’ operation offered a personal touch. The scheduling over the phone and the check-in process was smooth. The owner is very nice, and the guides seem to really enjoy the work. My wife and I and one other couple (who’d also been rafting before) were assigned to James. He was very aware of his surroundings, and we felt completely safe with him. You can tell that James lives to be on the river and wants to share that experience with as many people as he can.”
We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built in the Gatlinburg area, and we look forward to meeting new people and spreading our love of the outdoors. Book your 2017 or 2018 white water rafting trip online, or give us a call at 866-333-RAFT. Hope to see you soon!
