Easy to understand why Rolling Thunder gets so many 5-Star ratings!! I took a road trip to Georgia with my younger sister. I thought we were having a good time..until we booked a rafting trip with Rolling Thunder on 9-25-21. It was our last day before heading back to Florida. Well, that truly make our trip AMAZING! At 74, it was my first time rafting, so I was a bit wary. No need! The staff puts you right at ease and the instructional session before heading out was excellent. We couldn't have realized just how good it was until we had an encounter on the river and knew exactly what to do. What could have made the trip a nightmare, turned out to be the most exiting part!. And Nessie!! I just can't say enough about that man! I sat in front of him and was in awe of his agility and ability! He was an exciting show himself, all the time guiding us kindly and expertly. He made me feel I'd been on the river my whole life. Turns out he's a nice guy too! If you get the chance, ask for him as your guide. You won't be disappointed. I was also impressed by the discipline of the entire team. The guides kept a watch out for each other and their rafts which is something I didn't observe of the other companies' teams out there. I now have incentive to return to Georgia! Thanks Rolling Thunder and Nessie for a memorable adventure!!

Absolutely fabulous trip! We were part of Donovan's geriatric group he was assigned to and we could not have hand picked a better guide! The trip itself was amazing but made so much better because of him. He was highly entertaining and his stories (whether all true or not!) added a whole other dimension to the trip! The instructions prior to the trip was also entertaining. Only suggestion would be to allow the guests to get off the bus and stand in one area of the parking lot prior to unloading of all the rafts. Especially since Covid is still alive and it was close quarters in the bus.

Donavon was our geriatric river guide : ). We had the BEST time he made the trip sooo much fun! If you ever thought about going water rafting JUST DO IT! Our group of 4 were all over 60 and it was the best time I had had in years. Great price worth every penny.
