With three first time rafters, including a 10 yr old girl, we wanted a fun, safe yet fun experience, without getting in over our heads. Rolling Thunder delivered for us on the Nantahala! Our guide Dave was very knowledgeable about both the river and the surrounding environment. Lots of fun, and I'd recommend the company and request Dave again.

We had a group of six adults going rafting. From the minute we drove up we had fun. We were greeted inside promptly and with a smile. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Their prices were very affordable. There was a landing to play basketball while we waited to leave for the river which was fun. They take you on a... More

1st time rafting the Nantahala. Wife & 3 kids (15, 12, 9). Fair price! No gouging on the merchandise either. Nick was the best guide you could have! Constant rapids for 8 miles. He made it adventurous for everyone! Funny, engaging and knowledgeable! Highly recommend this place! Found them online and took a chance booking as a result of Trip... More

This was my son's second trip with Rolling Thunder, my first rafting trip ever. They joked with me about being nervous, but it was a blast! Would do this again! The Nantahala River is beautiful, and our guide, Jackson, pointed out several points of interest along the way. A little wet, a little cold, and a lot of fun! Tim... More

I had never been rafting. My husband and I were going to do the individual "duckies" but after I saw the degree and level of rapids on the Nantahala, opted for a guided raft instead. So very glad we did! Our guide, Eddie, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the river. This was a very friendly,... More

Took my family down the Nantahala River with the Rolling Thunder Co. We had a great time and priced perfect. The Guide Dave was awesome and made sure my family had a great time hitting all the right places in the river. Definitely would do this again with the Rolling Thunder. Pictures were great, though I thought it would only... More

We booked our river rapids trip with Rolling Thunder based on reviews from trip advisor. We had an 8 year old in our group and where limited to locations, however the Nantahala River was beautiful and the rapids were fun but not scary. It was perfect for our inexperienced group. We all enjoyed it. Our guide was Eddie and he... More

There were 7 adults that wanted to go White Water Rafting down the Nantahala River in North Carolina. The staff set it up so we all be be together, as we were also beginners. It was a wonderful 2 hour guided ride down the river, into some class 3 rapids. After we finished we were all soaked, and the water... More
