We enjoyed our day on the river and went back again two days later. The staff is friendly and helpful and they have clean facilities for changing.

Some friends and I went rafting to celebrate my friend Sean's 30th birthday and we all had an incredible time. We actually stayed in Bryson City and drove over just to raft with Rolling Thunder. Our guide, James, was easily one of the better river guides I've had. He was a freaking blast! We will definitely visit again.

Went on the Middle Ocoee about a week ago. It was absolutely amazing. The staff was great, funny, and made sure we had a great time. They also went over all safety before taking on the river and ensured that everyone had proper equipment. Our guide Sosebee was the absolute best, hands down. I highly suggest you request him to...

Been rafting once before in a different natural river where there was just 2 rafts on a 6 hour trip and did not see another party all day but did have to walk over a small parts of the course due to low water level where the river went very wide. This river has a controlled release from a reservoir... More

We had a great time in the Nantahala rafting with Rolling Thunder. It was my first time white-water rafting. We had a great guide and we will be back again. They were great. I would recommend this to anyone.

Did the Middle Ocoee trip with a few friends, and had an amazing time. We found out that Sept is the best time of year to do this, due to weather and water temp. Our guide Kat was the best, and it looked like our raft was having the most fun and adventure on the river! Definitely worth checking out.

It was mine and my husband's first time rafting, and we had an amazing time. We had the phenomenal WILL as our guide. He tailored the experience to the group in his raft, as a group of adventurers, he worked to make an already exciting trip one that we'd never forget. He had so much experience in these rapids (7...

I took my husband rafting for his birthday, Will was our guide & all though I wasn't in anyone else's raft, it seemed we were the only ones really surfing the hydraulics. Will was very entertaining & knowledgeable of local history. We will definitely be back & requesting Will! Don't forget to tip your guide!

I have never went whitewater rafting until now, one of my husband co-worker recommend this company so we went. I had so much fun and our guide Andy was the best and he rocked.... I will be back next year to do it all over again. If you never have done white water rafting you got to do it, so... More
