Beautiful scenery! Had a wonderful guide who was very experienced and knowledgable, but also had a great sense of humor, which made for an awesome rafting trip. Highly recommend Rolling Thunder! Can't wait to do it again!

We did the Nantahala River trip based on the reviews we read. The river was of course beautiful but the Rolling Thunder staff was fantastic. They were fun and entertaining but always with safety in mind. I highly recommend them!

My husband and I took our 2 teenaged daughters rafting on the Nantahala, what thrill! We've have previously rafted in North Carolina on the Nolichucky, the Nantahala is way more fun. You move faster, never get stuck and enjoy very interesting scenery along the way. The splashing water was freezing, the rapids were fun and our guide Chad made it... More

We were able to take the kids on their first whitewater rafting trip this weekend. Everyone had fun, I know I will hear when can we go again. We were very impressed with the front office staff and the guides. We were treated well!

We had a blast taking the un-guided "Funyak" trip down the river! Rolling Thunder is a first class operation that runs like a well oiled machine. Their facilities are some of the best we have seen at similar places. Staff was super enthusiastic which added to our fun. Even though we were not taking a guided trip, the guides couldn't... More

My 10 year old daughter and I had a great time. From the moment we arrived you could tell it was very professional and organized company, We started off with safety talk and then got on our gear for the short ride to the put in point on the River. The guides were excellent. Our Guide was David. We was... More

We went on a perfect day and chose Monday for less traffic. We all had river and canoeing experience, but no whitewater rafting experience. Hannah was our guide and she gave us appropriate information. Her demeanor was calm and professional, which helped with my nerves. We loved the photos and looked forward to buying them-there was no way to get... More

Had a great experience with these guys. Easy to book online, easy to find, everyone was super nice. Our family consists of two adults (both with experience) and our 7 year old daughter (no rafting experience). This is a great river for a first timer, as it is exciting enough but not real crazy. Our guide was Walker and we... More

We booked our white water rafting with the same company in Bryson City & we did the tubing with Rolling Thunder in GA/TN! Everyone at both locations were professional and showed they wanted you to have a good time! Prices are reasonable! Locations are easy to find! Would do it again!
