    The trip our family (2 teens, 2 adults) experienced was the white water rafting at Smoky Mountain River Adventures. The staff were friendly and accommodating and stalled our trip half an hour when we needed to return to our hotel for swimsuits. On that topic, definitely bring your swimsuits on your ride because you'll need them not only when getting splashed but if you decide to jump off a rock on one of the stops. Our driver was funny and engaging on the short trip to the dropoff point. Our guide, Benny, was very helpful and stopped us from getting stuck on rocks many times and got the boat back on the water quickly when we did. It was a very safe environment yet also thrilling. The water was very cold, though apparently it was warmer than usual, but that contrasted nicely with the hot day. The rapids on the Tuckasegee River were Level 2, though they approached Level 3 rapids towards the end of the trip. On our rest stop, we got to jump off a boulder into the river (if we chose to) which was slightly nerve-wracking though exhilarating. Benny was very knowledgeable in everything and even pointed out a bald eagle to us. We enjoyed some popcorn and ice pops from the staff at the end of our trip. Overall, I'd totally recommend!

    Drew was a fabulous guide. It was beautiful and we certainly benefitted from having a guide to get us through a few of the technical parts!
