A must stop and do. Guide was great and everyone was friendly and outgoing. We had a small group,5 plus guide, not rushed easy pace. Views were great and plenty of time to take pictures and enjoy surroundings.

Absolutely breath taking views of the new river gorge! You really don't realize how big the bridge is or how much went into the construction. If your around and have a few hours to kill it is for sure a memory maker! Staff were friendly...More

The tour guide was fantastic, full of knowledge and great at helping my mom along, who is not a great fan of heights. If you struggle very badly with heights, this may not be for you. The cat walk does shake, although it's built to...More
