This was my first time ever going zip lining and it was a great experience! The paths and equipment were very well maintained. The guides, Thomas and Matt, did an awesome job. They were very patient with everyone and wanted to make sure we all felt comfortable. They also had lots of commentary and jokes throughout the tour which was a great bonus. I will definitely be back!

Megan Lenahan

Great staff, fun adventures, and plenty of options for everyone. We had a blast and would love to come back for another adventure.

I went on a zip lining trip here yesterday at 10:30 with Josh and Joe! At first I was super nervous. I have always been a little afraid of heights and I didn’t know if I would be able to handle zipping through the mountains at 35 mph. From the very beginning Josh and Joe made me feel extremely comfortable. They explained everything extremely well but they also have us some much needed humor to break the tension. From very early on I felt safe in their company! I would definitely encourage anyone who wants a little adrenaline rush to go and see the people at French Broad. They are good ones. I’ll be coming back for white water rafting the next time I’m in NC. I didn’t think I could do it but Josh and Joe did a great job promoting it. What a great time. What a great atmosphere! Book now y’all!! You won’t regret it.

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! the ziplines were so much fun. Highly recommend!

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!
