Fun river paddling in Asheville

We truly enjoyed the 5 mile inflatable kayaking down the river. The quide, Leslie, was really nice, knowledgeable on birds and history and steered us safely through the rocks. After the tour she also gave us great tips on places and restaurants to visit. We didn’t fall off the kayak, but you do get wet, so wear clothing and shoes that can get wet. All in all a great way to spend 3 hours in Asheville.

Great short trip. Perfect experience for a beginner or expert that wants to get away for a couple of hours.

The guides had great instruction for navigating the small rapids. They were very patient with the other group that had difficulty. This is awesome if you aren’t all outdoorsy and athletic!

Good effort, but need some attention

Staff was initially engaging and did a great job of keeping us safe. They are young and very skilled kids, so I think they lost interest towards the end. They could’ve engaged with the group more. By the time we were finished, they were both in the front, sharing and having fun together with that much concerned for the participants.The description stated that we ended with a beer, but that was not provided. We were told that they would be pictures available, but after they said that nothing else was ever said about it.

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback! I'm sorry to hear that this trip did not meet your expectations and live up to the high standard of excellence that we have created here at Asheville Adventure Company. We work hard to hire the best guides who are fun, safe, and engaging. We expect that every guest is offered a beer at the end of the trip and given an opportunity to view their photos. If any of this did not happen it was a highly uncommon error on our part as our other positive reviews would indicate. We hope that you will give us another try next time you're in town so that we can show you what we're really all about here at Asheville Adventure Company!
