“Rolling Thunder! A+ Outfitter on the Nantahala!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

1st time rafting the Nantahala. Wife & 3 kids (15, 12, 9). Fair price! No gouging on the merchandise either. Nick was the best guide you could have! Constant rapids for 8 miles. He made it adventurous for everyone! Funny, engaging and knowledgeable! Highly recommend this place! Found them online and took a chance booking as a result of Trip Advisor reviews!

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This was my son's second trip with Rolling Thunder, my first rafting trip ever. They joked with me about being nervous, but it was a blast! Would do this again! The Nantahala River is beautiful, and our guide, Jackson, pointed out several points of interest along the way. A little wet, a little cold, and a lot of fun! Tim took some great pictures of each raft! Thanks, y'all, for a great experience!

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

I had never been rafting. My husband and I were going to do the individual "duckies" but after I saw the degree and level of rapids on the Nantahala, opted for a guided raft instead. So very glad we did! Our guide, Eddie, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the river. This was a very friendly, family style rub company who definitely take care of their customers. There were very clean bath houses available for changing prior to and after our trip. Our trip was very reasonable and allowed a military discount. Highly recommend this company.

“White Water Rafting Done Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Took my family down the Nantahala River with the Rolling Thunder Co. We had a great time and priced perfect. The Guide Dave was awesome and made sure my family had a great time hitting all the right places in the river. Definitely would do this again with the Rolling Thunder. Pictures were great, though I thought it would only be 1 picture to find out 10 were taken all for the same price. Thanks again Rolling Thunder for a Great Vacation.
