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

These guys are the Best! Don't fall for the imposters. We had an awesome time, and the rapids were excellent. That being said, the guide is the most important element of the trip, and Caylor made sure we went through the rapids safely and smoothly. White water rafting can be dangerous. Be sure you have an experienced guide.

M Jones

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

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!!

Derek Jackson

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++++

Lisa Smith Kennedy

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!
