Our guide made this a FUN trip down the river. I felt completely safe with our eight yr old on board. The guide was knowledgeable and personable. It was a great afternoon and a great value. We would book with them again.

Our group has been using RTRC for (at least) 10 years now, pretty much same week same month every year. We bring out youth down for mission work and find that rafting is a great way to promote team building and togetherness. RTRC and their staff are incredible. A BIG shout out to our guides - Boomer, Sparrow, Nick, and they got a little help from, I think it was John. When your down that way they are a must visit. Professional, courteous, very engaging with there clients, I know we didn't laugh at all of Boomers jokes on the bus - but we have heard them for some time now. Oh yeah Tim is one heck of a bus driver too (and picture taker). We have taken anywhere from 4 to 6 rafts, depending on our group size each year ... THIS is your best chance for a great experience down the Nantahala River!!! The Whitaker group will return for another 10 years, Lord willing.

We selected RTRC because they are a smaller company and we felt that there would be a more personal experience. We weren't disappointed. The guides are great as individuals and as a team. Our guide, Kym, met us at the excitement and challenge level that our kids wanted to be at and gave us an excellent two hour ride. We would definitely raft with Rolling Thunder again.

Awesome trip! I went with my youth group. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable, and the ride down the river was exciting. I'll be going again soon.
