My wife, and my 2 daughters as well as myself had this wonderful experience over our spring break as teachers. I was a terrific experience and our tour guide Dale was great, professional, and knowledgeable. I would recommend this company and experience to everyone I know, and am sharing it with friends. Thank you so much for helping us make fond family memories!!

Matt Steven’s= Best tour guide ever! My partner and I came here for some whitewater rafting and we were met with unexpected freezing conditions, and even snow! Mr.Steven’s bundled us all up in wetsuits, booties, and we hit the water. He made sure our safety and comfort were top priority. It was incredible, despite the frigid water, we were able to have the entire river to ourselves and even saw a mink. If you’re considering rafting come here! I promise you won’t be disappointed. You’ll even get to hear some free stand up comedy from Matt.

We had a blast rafting down the Nantahala with Matt! He took extreme care and attention to every detail of our safety, while still providing us with an amazing time! I didn't have any trouble finding the location and the check-in process was smooth and quick. He also kept us laughing during our trip. Would definitely return!

Returning customer. Had a great time on the river. 2nd day of 2022 season. Perfect weather. Annie and Matt were the best. Great local knowledge of the history of the Nantahala gorge. Family owned and only want you to have a great time. Not like the larger corporate owned center down the highway. Look forward to coming back again.
