Not the wildest rapids but great for a family outing

We did a guided tour - the guide was great. The ride is more mild than wild for the most part, but this is great if your party includes seniors and 7 year olds, as ours did. My... read more

A fantastic funyak trip down the river. If you are comfortable rafting we definitely recommend the guided funyak trip with Fast Rivers. We were thoroughly impressed with our guide, Frank. I had never been in an inflatable kayak, and Frank gave great instruction to make me completely comfortable going down the river. We booked funyaks thinking we would be in... More

After rafting with Carolina Outfitters, we went to get a bite at The Rivers End Restaurant. We had a large party and they accommodated us quickly. The food was great. I had the dragon's tail burger! YUMMY

Years ago we previously rafted with the "BIG" company. This time based on the Trip Advisor reviews we booked with Adv. Fast Rivers. What an amazing trip! This was my sons (10yr) first time rafting the river. Beth was our guide- she treated him like a king. It was just the 3 of us and her in the boat. Such... More

We took a vacation to the Blue Ridge Mountain area in a month of rain everyday. We were scheduled for the Ocoeee but it was closed for high water so we drove from Georgia to North Carolina hoping to find sunny skies. What we found was rafters on the Nantahala so without researching a place we pulled over to a... More

Booked a guided rafting trip for four and we came out of it extremely happy with our experience. Our guide Hamilton was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and a cutie with a few tricks up his sleeve. Highly recommend.

We took our 9 and 10 year old daughters down the river for their first white water trip. Our guide Chelsea was perfect for us - she knew how to make everything more fun, taught us tons about the area, and speaks Spanish! best of all - our kids left the river wanting to be guides when they are in...

We had a 15 year old and an 11 year old and we all had a blast! Our guide Frank kept us laughing, made it extra fun and made sure we were safe the entire time. Our pictures turned out great too. We finished our trip and immediately wished we could do it again. We would definitely recommend it.
