We did the lower Pigeon River family rafting trip with our guide, Staci, on August 26th. Half of our party went on the upper trip and made fun of us for going on the "boring" trip, but we had a blast. Staci is the best! She really made the most of our time together. We chatted, told jokes, and she pointed out interesting things to look for. She really listened and customized our rafting experience to our collective comfort level. We were given the choice to do a Class III rapid, and thanks to Staci's guidance, we had the courage to face it and handle it with ease, even though some on our raft were initially nervous about encountering rapids. We had fun spinning our boat around in the lesser rapids. There were lots of laughs during our time together and we even saw freshwater "shark!" We'll definitely be back and I hope we'll be lucky enough to get Staci as our guide again. She's a magical unicorn.

You showed that group that went on the Upper White Water that you all had a fantastic time on the LOWER FLOAT with Stacie. We're also looking forward to all of you coming back. See you soon!

Today was our fourth time rafting with Rafting in the Smokies company and it again was an awesome trip. You can't beat this trip. Our guide was Staci, and she was so much fun and one of the best guides we've ever had. Don't hesitate to book a rafting trip with this company. Thank you Staci for a fun trip!

What a wonderful adventure with my daughter and two granddaughters. It's been a long time since I laughed so much. Our guide Kim was the best.

This was our first time rafting. We did the lower Pigeon family float with Chris as our guide. He was the best! Our six year old daughter was nervous before the trip and Chris made her feel completely at ease on our trip. We will absolutely be returning to Rafting in the Smokies next summer!
