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

Ahhhmazing!! Everyone was so courteous and skilled. Sean was a hilarious guide to and from the rafting area. Divans was our river guide and not only did he show us a fantastic time but he was funny and a great showman. No one in our raft had ever been before and we all had a blast. Can’t wait to return on our next time in the area to do the 9 mile trip.

Jessica Scott Madsen

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

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

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.

Karen

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!
