We looked at the 3 places close to us for tubing with this getting the best reviews. I can't say anything about the others but the staff here was great, very personable and friendly. Didn't make any difference how big your group was when you were ready to go they transported your group to the drop off site. They explained... More

We chose Cowboy Tubing based on price and location. Everyone there was very nice and got us set up quickly. We did 2 runs down the river before lunch and then came back afterward for a 3rd. Definitely worth the money! Tubing can be a dangerous activity, so make sure you read the waiver. We had our youngest (10) wear... More

For starters the staff of the business was pleasant and attentive, however the experience was awful. Maybe i should have taken hints as to what to expect when i was told that we'd need water shoes and to take off the glasses or they will be lost. The idea is to go down the river in a tube, which sounds... More

We've been to two of the three tubing places, the other one was horrible, but we stopped here this trip and I gotta give it a 10. The place was very clean, they had a store for all the little things you tend to forget. And if you look in the coupon books you can tube all day for $8.... More

My wife and I recently returned from vacationing in Gatlinburg where we did many outdoors activities, including white water rafting, ziplining, hiking, etc. However, we were undecided about going tubing with so many companies to choose from! We came on TripAdvisor and looked and found Cowboy Tubin' and noticed all of the great reviews. So we decided to check it... More

So we visit the Pigeon Forge /Townsend area every year for vacation and I have always wanted to go tubing. So we first stopped at River Rats where they told us it was $15 p.p. to tube for the day. Then we decided to check out Cowboy tubing because it was much cheaper and the exact same river. So was... More

We read several reviews and finally decided on Cowboy Tubing. I can say for sure that we picked the right company! Price was great and the two ladies up front were extremely friendly and helpful! They gave us warning that the river was a little low and the driver gave us points of caution etc on the way up by... More

We went to Cowboy's Tubing after reading a ton of reviews on different places to tube in the smokys. We had a fabulous time from the moment we walked in the front door. We were greeted with a smile and very friendly people. It didn't take long to get signed in and on our way. The van driver that we... More
