Chase was professional and funny and an excellent guide. This was my first time rafting and had a little anxiety but he made it so fun and I trusted him completely. This was a great adventure for a first timer over 60

Went water rafting down the Pigeon Forge. Was very scared but the guides were professional, friendly and made the trip a lot of fun. The view was pretty all the way down the river. I am hooked and can't wait to go back.

We've used NOC as guides on at least 7 Rivers in the south and they always surprise us with their professional approach and high commitment to safety. Today was the Nolichucky and I can't say enough good things about the experience. Johnny was the trip...More

We had an absolute blast on our first ever whitewater rafting trip, but don't fall out of the raft. We went without a guide. I am not sure I would advise that. Yes, it was quite an adventure but it can be very dangerous. We...More

Lost the action photo disk. Got back to Empire Louisiana and no photo disk, Very sad. It was nice the water went over my head. Couldn't see me, the water covered me in the photo. I liked the ride.

NOC has the best trips in Eastern Tennessee. The guides are extremely careful and make sure your having fun. We had the option of ducks (inflatable kayaks) or rafts. Our party opted to split up and do both. We all had a great time. The...More
