My friends and I enjoyed our trip down the Ocoee River. This was my first white-water rafting trip, but I couldn't imagine another company doing it any better. Gabriel is an awesome guide. He kept a bunch of beginners right-side up and pointed in the right direction. I highly recommend requesting him for your guide.

I went earlier this year (in July) and had a spectacular time tubing. We went in the afternoon around twelve. If we were to go any later the river would've been stronger than we wanted. A nice man drove us down a little ways and dropped us off at our starting point. From their we got in and had a... More

This was an awesome trip, whether you were a beginner or someone with a little experience. The guides were wonderful; they were friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Principal Joe

Two Thumbs Up! I went river-rafting with a large group of about 30. We came in with our waivers so check in was seamless and the guides were very funny and interactive. Enjoyed every minute from the hilarious guide telling us about the rules and what to do until the bitter-sweet departure. Will was truly the BEST guide ever! He... More

I'd been wanting to go white water rafting for years and did not want a calm relaxing ride. My wife and I rode the Ocoee upper and middle for my 40th birthday. There were Class 3 and 4 rapids. The rapids alone were fun but Will, our guide, made it spectacular. He gave us the option of a fun, traditional... More

After living in the city all my life I thought it would be nice to get a outdoor family vacation going. So after deciding on Georgia and doing a little research we agreed on White Water Rafting and chose Rolling Thunder. I can't tell you in words how PERFECT of a choice this was!! It was a class III on... More

We have been rafting with Rolling Thunder River Company for 6 years straight and there has never been a time where anything has gone wrong. The guides are informative and thorough with instructions but most of all they have all been great fun on the river! I would never use anyone else! Principal Joe was our guide this year and... More

Good time for the entire crew. Ruth was a blast. Lots of historical info with a touch of [--]. Not for the faint of heart. It helps if your a touch fearless! Level 2 and 3 for the most part. THANKS RUTH!

I can't think of a better way to spend a beautiful Saturday. We did the full day trip. I highly recommend doing it that way. If you do the half day, you'll still have a blast, but it will be too short. Be sure to ask for Will. He was an excellent guide and had vast knowledge about the area.... More
