Reviews & Accolades

This company is amazing!!! Not much else to say really because every review says that, but I wanted to write a review because JUSTIN was the best raft guide ever and made it so much fun!!! He made jokes and told us history, but most importantly we knew we were safe in his hands! Make sure you say YES when he asks 'do you want to try something exciting?' It was my first time so we did the 5 miles, but honestly I wish I did the 9 mile instead! And the lunch is a delicious HOT meal in a great location!

This was my first time zip lining, and I'm really glad I chose French Broad Adventures. The staff were professional, knowledgeable and friendly. They were thorough in preparing and instructing our group. They were attentive to safety at all times. They checked and inspected our gear several times during the session, and they enforced the rules as necessary The course was fun and the scenery was beautiful. I recommend French Broad Adventures highly for families and adults!

Chuck Thomas

Of all the ziplines in this area, this one is my favorite.  It's not too fast, not too slow, and just plain fun.  I've visited multiple times and will be back at least once this season with more company in tow.

Richard Brown

An amazing Zipline experience. This is definitely the place you want to come to. Only 30 min from Asheville. Guides were the best and the attention to detail and safety unmatched. We will be back.

My family of 4 had an absolutely amazing time both rafting and ziplining for 2 days! Calvin was our river guide - full of knowledge and fun. Next time we are ready for the 9 mi. rafting trip! We had never ziplined before, Cara and Becca were awesome guides - a lot of fun and laughs - we were in great hands. Will be back, and will recommend French Broad Adventures to everyone!! Wish we could give more than 5 stars!

Kara Headrick Beard

Was an excellent class. Enjoyed the instructors and loved the river! Will take what i learned and apply it to my own paddling.

Adrian Hayes

Thomas and Cara were the best! Thank you both for a fantastic zip with our group today! Both were great with easing us in and breaking the ice. One of our friends in our group wasn't very sure about doing it but Thomas and Cara really did awesome with keeping things light with jokes and just being very personable. Total blast! Thanks guys!

My husband and I won a ziplining trip. We're both 60+ and had no experience, but were excited to try. So much fun! Josh and Juice took good care of us! We felt safe and comfortable. I highly recommend it!

Denise Dellinger

Amazing time our family enjoyed it so much!!!!! Tom was the best guide ever!!!!!! We will definitely be doing it again soon!!!!! The pictures they took of our family were the best. The ladies in the gift shop were so nice and friendly.

My dad and I went here today for ziplining. Our guides, Thomas and Peter were super awesome and enthusiastic as well as knowledgeable and comforting. They both had a great sense of humor which was a plus and whenever I mentioned that the height was a little scary for me they were so nice about it and were quick to make me feel better again. Next time I'm in the area I will definitely come back here to do the white water rafting! P.s. this place is locally owned so whenever you're giving them business you're helping a local business which makes the whole experience way better. I had a blast and I highly recommend this place to anybody!

Excellent learning experience: Googd balance of hands-on + classroom instruction. It was great having multiple instructors. This really helped provide students with varying techniques on paddling strategies and approaches to river running. Learned a ton and had fun doing it.

Will Davenport

My daughter and I had a great time ziplining through the mountains! Matt & Joe were our guides, and they always made sure we were safe, and they kept it fun! Ten awesome ziplines were so much fun. Highly recommend!

Naomi Elkin

This was my first time ever going zip lining and it was a great experience! The paths and equipment were very well maintained. The guides, Thomas and Matt, did an awesome job. They were very patient with everyone and wanted to make sure we all felt comfortable. They also had lots of commentary and jokes throughout the tour which was a great bonus. I will definitely be back!

Megan Lenahan

A fantastic class. The instructors were all knowledgeable and well prepared. The learning environment was welcoming and fun.

Jamie Adams

Very good course, instructors showed professionalism and it was a lot of fun.

Patricia Boyd

The guides are so knowledgeable, the area is rustic and the river has so much beauty. We were novice rafters and the 2 & 3 rapids were just the right level of exciting!! A great value for the length of the trip downriver too.

Ann Pieta

Mitch & Michael are always great taking care of our group before we get there and the guides do a 5-star job taking care of us once we arrive. This go round was guided by Jonah & Timmy. 10/10 recommend!

Jacob Lambert

What a great time.. the guides are hilarious and made me (a first timer) feel safe in their capable hands.. going back and bringing the kids.

Tatiana Garcia - Hettinga

Very professional and friendly guides. They make everyone feel at ease. Matt and Lily were our tour guides. They were very encouraging and understanding. There are 10 zip lines And two repels in the adventure. Everything is well-maintained and beautifully presented. There are great vistas to view from the staging towers. Plan at least three hours for the zip lining.

Kern Stump

Went on Canyoneering trip on June 3. Guides were knowledgable and made the trip fun. Would definitely recommend this trip.

Tim Pickett

Spend the day yesterday with our group zip lining and rafting in the afternoon. Was a highlight of our trip up to Asheville. The guides, Thomas, Lee, and Shawn were fantastic. Definitely recommend and will book again the next time there.

Jack Stout

Great customer service and so much fun! I look forward to coming year after year!

Maria Robelo-Monsalve

Everything about our visit was amazing. The staff is truly one of a kind and the lines were great!

I went on a zip lining trip here yesterday at 10:30 with Josh and Joe! At first I was super nervous. I have always been a little afraid of heights and I didn’t know if I would be able to handle zipping through the mountains at 35 mph. From the very beginning Josh and Joe made me feel extremely comfortable. They explained everything extremely well but they also have us some much needed humor to break the tension. From very early on I felt safe in their company! I would definitely encourage anyone who wants a little adrenaline rush to go and see the people at French Broad. They are good ones. I’ll be coming back for white water rafting the next time I’m in NC. I didn’t think I could do it but Josh and Joe did a great job promoting it. What a great time. What a great atmosphere! Book now y’all!! You won’t regret it.

Had the most incredible time and it truly was AN ADVENTURE!!!! Allie and Stephen were great guides. They made sure that we were very safe, down to making sure that we were always buckled in while we drove their and back! It's great to do this with people that have lived there their whole lives, love nature and truly care about making sure that we were so happy with our experience! This was seriously one of THE BEST EXPERIENCES OF MY LIFE. It's exhilarating, not scary and perfect for anyone that wants to be a little closer to nature in a fun way. Check them out, make life long memories and have fun!
