Reviews & Accolades

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!

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.

This was our families second adventure with French Broad. 2 years ago we did the 5 mile white water rafting, and last month we did the 9 mile. (they wanted more adventure!) I cannot say enough about how friendly, knowledgeable and professional the staff/guides are. The lunch they prepare for you on the 9 mile ride is fantastic! Of course nature takes care of the majestic views. Love that they allow you to get out and swim and even jump off cliffs! For the second time in 2 years everything went as planned. Not one hiccup!! AAAA++++

It was a great experience with entertaining guides, Matt and Dee! We thoroughly enjoyed our zip-lining trip and definitely recommend French Broad Adventures.

Jacqueline Meenach Benson

Jamie Adams

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

We went on the short trip that included lunch for a very reasonable price. This was our first trip and it was amazing. The scenery was beautiful, and our guide was informative, professional, and a lot of fun! We learned a lot about the landmarks and homes you see along the river. We look forward to bringing our children next year. I would highly recommend this company to my family and friends.


This place is awesome. Have been coming here for years and somehow the experience keeps getting better. The people make a huge difference providing a good time while always feeling safe. They have rafting for experienced and novice, ziplining, and canyoneering (which is newer) available to try. The waterfall used for the repelling is awesome. The treehouse stop on the ziplining is ridiculous. Definitely add this to your Asheville vacation, you wont regret it!

If you're like me, you spend way too many hours reviewing reviews and comparing rafting companies....Let me help you, STOP! There is truly no reason to spend another minute doing research. This company is the real deal. The staff were all top-notch! and the trip down the river was a blast. Great lunch about halfway down the river. I strongly recommend the 9 mile run.

If your group loves adventure you seriously need to go to French Broad Adventures! We did Ziplining in the morning (ask for Ariel and Becca), and then we went white water rafting (ask for Allie)! The guides were amazing and fun! Seriously super nice people! I can’t wait to visit again!

Maurisa Tremain

We visited in September and we did the 5 mile Raft trip with lunch and a afternoon Zip Line tour. I can't say enough good things about this company, they are fun, love to have a good time and they do everything to make you fell safe and taken care of. We thoroughly enjoyed the rafting and the lunch was very good. Burgers, hot dogs and you can even get a veggie burger. We also loved the Zip Line, it was so amazing to be flying through the trees. I highly recommend them, they will make sure you have a good time.

Great Fun, Great Company

We enjoyed our trip down the French Broad River and the guides were great! We took our 9 and 11 year old boys and they had a blast. They can't wait to go again. Thank you for a great experience.

Craig and Beth

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

Tim Pickett

We just finished our trip and it was excellent. We have gone numerous places throughout the US and this is the top by far! We had A.J. and Shawn as our guides and they did a great job. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and overall great guys. The facilities were nice, clean, organized, everyone was friendly and helpful, and there were no complaints whatsoever. Would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back!

Matt Hamel

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

Matthew Golden

This was a wonderful class. I got more out of it than expected.

Brent Smith

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

It was awesome! Zip line and white water rafting for the first and they made the experience very memorable. I would recommend this place 100%.

Nakeisha Tinsley

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

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

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!

Cortney Griffiths

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