Comedy show plus white water rafting - what more can you ask for!?!? Richard was amazing as our guide. He knew the river like the back of his hand. He's funny, personable and most of all you could see that he cared about his client's having a great time. The hot lunch is a total bonus. Highly recommend!

Terri Hecker

Had a great experience at French Broad Zipline tour. Our teens daughters also had a great time. The staff was top notch. Our guides Ariel & Matt were superb, patient & very good teachers! It was a great time spent and worth every penny! Felt safe the entire time, the equipment was well maintained as well as the course & platforms. They had water mid course at the treehouse and a very cool suspension bridge. Thanks for a great morning with our kids!

Jody Schilling-Siefert

Our Family did both whitewater rafting and zip lines. Sean was our River guide and he was great. Matt and Lilly were our guides for the Zip lines and they were great as well. We will definitely be back!!

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!
