Great experience: Jesse should be a therapist.

The caves were neat. The family had a great time. I found out I was claustrophobic so I struggled a lot but Jesse talked me through it. Very entertaining van ride too.

Incredible day on the Nolichucky River in FunYaks through class 3 and 4 rapids in the 8 mile river gorge. Even though the river was supposedly "low", the rapids were still an exciting challenge to paddle. Guides were outstanding in helping us navigate through the rapids. Very friendly and helpful. I have been white water rafting on 3 other occasions... More

This was our first trip rafting. My 7yr old had a blast and so did my mother. Great fun for all ages. I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to raft with, our new friends were so much fun. The staff were absolutely the BEST!! They truly made the entire experience memorable and were quite entertaining. I... More

We had a great time with three kids - ages 13, 11, 7, granny and parents. It's very easy, relaxing and perfect for a multi-generational outing in a beautiful setting! The water was just right and the company is professional and very easy to deal with! Thanks for a great day!

Me and my sister both arrived on time having purchased our tickets in advance. We were not greeted by any of the staff and had to ask multiple people who was in charge, when we finally figured out who to talk to we signed in and took our pregnant selves to a bench to sit and wait for the next...

We got to the drop off point 20 minutes early and our guide was already there. Friendly and helpful staff. They drove us to entry point and gave us several landmarks to look out for along the way. Their tubes were comfortable. The staff was great it started raining really bad 2/3 of the way and they picked us up... More

We had a fantastic day! It was my son's first rafting trip and my first rafting trip in about 25 years!! The guides were great. Jason was our guide and he did a phenomenal job of showing us a good time while keeping us safe. He also told us local folklore along the ride which was pretty cool. Definitely two... More

High Mountain Expeditions was great! We scheduled our trip on Friday Aug. 5th, but it was cold and raining. They let us reschedule the following day with no extra cost, plus we were a little late and they were completely nice about it. Once we arrived HME was there and our guides were happy and fun. I would recommend this... More
