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

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

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

Alex Wennen

We went rafting this week with Auggie as our guide and it was one of the best adventures we’ve had!! The whole staff was awesome. They are knowledgeable with the river and so prepared for the delicious lunch on the shore. We can’t wait to get back!!

This was my 5th time rafting in North Carolina (first time with this specific rafting service, though), and I can say that our guide, Jim, was the best one I've had so far. Jim displayed an amazing level of skill and knowledge of white water. He was also very personable, and shared his knowledge of the region's history and biology. Jim was super positive and encouraging to everyone in the boat. I suspect the other guides are very professional as well. Seems to be a great rafting company overall.

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!
