Booked a package of rafting and zip lining. Was a little apprehensive beforehand but the instructors and guides are so reassuring we soon settled in. The zip lining was great fun and we all enjoyed that. The staff were so friendly as well, spending loads...MoreZak and Stacie are AWESOME!! guides.

Great Smoky Mountain National Park

Reviewed By cybermom333 - Miami, Florida

Our ride up the mountains were so interesting at first it was very green as we continued up the winding roads we would find frozen icicles along the sides of the mountains and we continued going up to the point where Tennessee & North Carolinas state lines meet. At the moment we arrived overlooking the snow covered trees & mountains snow flurries began coming down. We couldn’t have asked for such a perfect visit.

Reviewed By John R

We have taken several river rafting trips on our visits to Gatlinburg this company and guide was by far the best yet. Our guide," Willis" was professional yet I believe he works nights as a comedian. He kept us laughing from the beginning to the very end of our experience, he truly loves his job and it made our trip one we will not soon forget. We will definitely be back. Booked over the phone last minute easily. Trip was recommended to us by Courtney who was also a guide but was not working that day. The shop has wet suits to use that were very nice and clean, just bring water shoes. John Rogers

Reviewed By Chris S

My wife and I were able to get in the day before the end of the season on an afternoon discounted trip. The staff was absolutely superb in assisting me with getting situated with my reservation and mounting my GoPro. They even moved me to a sooner trip to keep us from waiting around. My guide was Tyler and he was great. Not only did he make the day fun, he guided through the river with skill and knowledge that kept e everyone safe. He even guided us in performing a rescue of a other rafting service's client, in which he pulled the distressed person in our raft and we retrieved two paddles.
Overall, I would recommend This company and ask for Tyler as your guide.

Carver Orchards & Farm Market

Reviewed By SmurfySmurfette80 - Maryville, Tennessee

We stopped by the candy store today. We purchased almond, cashew and pecan milk chocolate clusters that were all extremely fresh and so good. The chocolate covered peanuts in the pre made boxes were not fresh and we were disappointed in those and they tasted like a different chocolate that was not great. The star of the show though was their milk and dark covered chocolate cherries, they were soooo good.

Wildwater Rafting - Pigeon

The Pigeon River offers something for everyone. Adventure down the Upper or Lower section... Or you can do both! Each section is about 6 miles long. The quick shuttles combined with the close proximity to the Gatlinburg/ Pigeon Forge area make this river truly convenient. We have individual, child, and group rates.

Reviewed By Rob R - Pigeon Forge

We went rafting on the upper Pigeon River. The trip had class 3 and class 4s. JD was our guide and he was OUTSTANDING. We had a blast. It is definitely worth the cost of the trip. Went with family including 2-14 year olds. Everyone had a blast.

Mt Cammerer Fire Tower

Reviewed By swofford4 - Columbia, Missouri

We left from Cosby Campground so it was 9.2 miles round trip. The first portion on Lower Gap Trail is uphill the entire way and the hardest part. Once you reach Appalachian Trail it levels off a bit. Signs are well marked. The views from Mt. Cammerer Fire Tower are stunning. Our family of 4 with children 9 and 12 completed the hike in about 6 hours.
