Super good people and great guides! Extremely reasonable prices and a beautiful two hour ride through the mountains of North Carolina.

Seven of us braved the 48 degree waters of the Nantahala River under the expert guidance of our " captain " Nick. He showed us all the wonders of rafting, never missing the opportunity to plunge us into the biggest rapids and bounce us ( expertly ) off the many rocks and bumps along the way. Highly, highly recommended. Will... More

First time Rafting anywhere and we could not have been happier with our choice. I know there are alot of choices out there, but the staff was professional from the moment we booked throughout the entire trip. We took the guide assisted and our Guide, Nick was fabulous. Thanks for a great time.

Rapids were pretty mild but great for a first time out for everyone. Chad catered to our group who wanted a lively experience and we did rock turns... More

We took the unguided trip - I have some river experience and decided to work as our family's guide. My husband and I had been on guided rafting trips before, but our sons (7 & 11) were new to this. The river was a perfect level for our family and we had great fun. The pricing felt like a very... More

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
