“The highlight of our trip to Tennessee!”
Reviewed 19 August 2011

Our recent trip down the Upper Pigeon River with our able guide, JD, was the best part of our recent trip to TN. Big Creek Expeditions is a top notch operation, easy check in, plenty of information ahead of time, and a fun filled, safe experience for our family of four. I would recommend this over anything else Tennessee has to offer!

“First Time Rafting and Loved It”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

My wife has always wanted to go rafting and we happen to win a free tour through our resort, so we bought another tour and made our reservations. We choose the upper river for more excitement. There is a quick check-in process followed by a half hour safety demonstration. They then separate you and you meet your guide and they go over some particulars. Our guide was Brad; he was a cool guy who answered any and all questions we had. You are bused to the raft launch site and off you go. The upper river is 6 miles long and all class III and IV rapids that were great. We bought our souvenir pictures which come on a disc. When we got home, the disc was bad and wouldn't show the pictures. My wife called, and they shipped us a new disc that day. When we got home, the disc was in the mailbox, and the pictures are great. I would suggest if you are looking to ride the rapids in the Smokies, to give Big Creek Expeditions a call.
Note: The guides work on tips, so keep that in mind when you book your trip.

We signed up for this trip bc we got a deal on livingsocial.com Great trip! Collin was a great guide. The river is nice bc there are enough rapids to keep it interesting without being too scary. We all can't wait to go back!!

“Tremendous experience”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

What a great experience this was! We went with our 14 and 10 year old boys and it was a fantastic family trip. Despite our initial concerns about the suitability for preteens, safety was not an issue at all. Our guide, Collin, was full of fun and enthusiasm and helped make the day. Highly recommended as a fun family experience!!
