This was our second trip with USA Raft and our guide, Danny Click, and it was equally as thrilling as the first. The river, the mountains and her wildlife do not disappoint. We felt safe, but really enjoyed the adventure. Danny did an amazing job of educating us on rafting safety as well as hydrology for beginners. He brilliantly coached us through every amazing turn. Lunch on the banks was the perfect break in the action. What an enjoyable way to spend the day! Highly recommend.

We had an amazing trip! It was our families 1st time, so it was the perfect experience. Our kids were 12 and 9 and they loved everything!

Our family of 8 went on a white water raft adventure with USA Raft, on the French Broad River near Asheville, NC. It was an incredible experience. Our guides, Tim and Camden, were very skilled and knowledgable. They did everything to ensure a great adventure on a safe raft trip. We would do again in a flash.

Our guide, Tim, was wonderful! The service was topnotch, and our family of five (three 20-something children), with different levels of experience and trepidation, all had a great time!

My husband and I booked the Worley's Cave half-day trip and absolutely loved it! My husband has been caving before but I hadn't and it was incredible. Our guide John was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and fun. There are so many options with this cave that we plan to come back and book again with John to explore different areas! Highly recommend!
