Our group had a great time on the Ocoee with our guide Chris and the other guys and gals from Rolling Thunder. Thanks to James and Gomer for helping the rest of our crew down the river as well.

Highly knowledgeable staff. Safety is paramount with them. All the guides communicate with each other and are always making sure everyone is okay and good to go. Our guide was David Woods. I highly recommend him. Never once on what is definitely a dangerous environment did I ever think about the danger. He kept us safe and had a great... More

We took our 11 and 10yr old daughters rafting for the first time. It was my first time as well. My husband insisted we do Nantahala without a guide, and it was SO. MUCH. FUN! The guides available were both professional and funny, and instantly put us at ease. What a gorgeous way to spend a Sunday morning. We are... More

They have a knowledgeable group of guides that make the trip fun and relaxed. You are in good hands! Our guide was Richard, and he made our trip down the upper and lower level of the Ocoee river so memorable and fun that we did it twice in one week! Richard, if you read this, tnx again, ducktape and family,... More

My family used Rolling Thunder River Co for a guided tour with Emily. The prices were better than other companies, and the trip was great. Emily was an awesome guide--good with our kids and knowledgeable of the river. We would definitely use this company again!

We took our 12 yr old grandsons whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River. Even the grandparents had a wonderful time. Our guide, Chad, was knowledgable, as he knew the river very well. He gave of many rock spins which were fun. The boys enjoyed riding the bull, sitting up front and holding on to a strap while going through the... More

We decided to finally take our boys out for some whitewater rafting during our recent trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and we picked Rolling Thunder for a ride down the Nantahala River. We were not disappointed and our guide Jackson was great with our kids (and us!). A nice, long excursion of Class 1-2 rapids and a good... More
