"I went rafting with 15 of my friends for my bachelor party with Asheville Adventure Company and we absolutely loved the experience. Every member of the staff was friendly and accommodating. We made a reservation weeks in advance but they worked with us to add one more person the day of. The rafting guides were very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. We felt super safe the entire trip and had a blast!"
— Dominic C.
"We had a group of 20 boys and leaders from our church group, visiting from FL. The group number changed a few times and they were super accommodating throughout. On trip day, they were very detailed in their explanations on what to expect and how things would go, and the guides on the rafts were amazing! They knew the river like the backs of their hands, the skill and wisdom in anticipating all of the variables as we navigated around rocks and rapids was impressive and fun to observe. Everyone in the party had a great time, highly recommend!"

"If you want an unforgettable experience, choose Asheville Adventure Company!! We took a family of four on the white water rapids and this was an utterly amazing time-of-our-lives experience!! Grey was our tour guide! He was an excellent instructor as we worked together to paddle through the rapids. We saw deer, heron, and other wildlife! We stopped to jump off a rock into the river, and even swam about a bit in between all the fun rapids! 10/10 would recommend!"
