WILSON!! (Castaway voice) LOL. Our Guide Wilson literally made our experience great. Very educational for our safety and told us his favorite Tennessee jokes to make it Fun. Absolutely did all he could to ensure we hit all the best Class 3 & Class 4 Rapids! Nothing but smiles from the first timers and will definitely be a return customer. We will recommend Wilson for every return trip we make. Wilson!!

We had a great time on the Lower Pigeon River today! Ruben (Roo) made the experience even better. He had a 8, 5, and 3 year old with us and they absolutely loved it! We will definitely be back! Thank you River Rat Whitewater!!

We had an amazing time with our guide, Bubbles. Our kids called him "Mr. Bubbles". He was very safety conscientious and was extra careful with the younger kids we had in the raft. We were able to stop off and go swimming for a bit in a few places. Mr. Bubbles took time to explain to our kids various aspects, terminology, and science principles behind the rapids, an eddy, etc. Our family worked as a close team and with Bubbles calling the strokes, we were able to have an extremely fun (and safe as possible) rafting trip. We had such a great time that we cannot wait to go back here on our next visit to the area.
