5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Our raft guide, Will helped make this a great rafting experience. We have used Rolling Thunder three times now and won't use another company. Easy reservations and the guides are fabulous. Will was so friendly and informative, he was awesome on the river. My youngest daughter was riding the bull and fell in and he was quick to pull her to safety, while my husband and I were in shock! Overall a great trip! Thanks for a super adventure, Rolling Thunder and Will!

“YEP, that was FUN! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

This was our first time rafting and it wasn't as dangerous as I thought it would be. Our teenager was really scared, but at the end she liked it.

Our younger child really enjoyed it and wants to go again.

Parking at company = 3 Stars - not really a parking lot, so parking was free for all.

Employees/Guides = 4 Stars - Our guide Chris was a quite guy, but he was doing his job. We gave him a pretty good tip.

Equipment = 5 Stars - We had 3 items to keep up with, helmet, paddle and life jacket. All was needed, but I will tell that the jackets and helmets smell BAD. They are cleaned, but still smell.

Bus Ride = 3 Stars - The guides was telling us some history/information about the area, but wasn't loud enough to hear. It would be nice to hear and have them talk to us.

I am NOT happy that the Guides did not a couple drunk folks on bus being loud and cussing in front of the kids. I do not think drunk folks should be allowed on this tour.

“AWSOME ANNIVERSARY! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

My wife and I had a great idea to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary by going white water rafting. After checking trip advisor we booked with Rolling Thunder. Some family members joined us including my 72yr old father. Richard was a great guide (I owe you a push into the water), and had us surfing, and riding the bull. Never once did we feel in danger. Dad wants to go again already. Everyone at Rolling Thunder was friendly and helpful. If your even thinking about taking a trip, DO IT! It is the most fun you'll ever have for the price. Oh yeah...don't forget to get the DVD of pictures..we already have pics framed and on the wall.Thanks again for a great celebration.

“F!@#$/g AMAZING!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Wow!!!! What an (icy cold) blast of pure excitement! !! My family & 8 yr old son just took a trip down the nantahala river in N.C. & loved every thrilling second of it . Nick our guide was entertaining knowledgeable & very professional. The river is incredibly beautiful although be forewarned also incredibly cold (48') so a wetsuit might be recommended for the thinblooded. The rapids have great names like the S.O.B. & the root canal & they totally deliver! You will not be bored! This outfitter was considerably less expensive than some of their more heavily advertised competition yet I dont see any how there is any difference in quality. Some other nice touches they have straps to hang onto in the rafts they carry the rafts back to the bus & offer hot showers to thaw yourself out. Highly recommended & worth every penny!

“Amazing!”

My family and I went white water rafting and had the best time! Chris was our guide and he made it so fun and interesting and I couldn't have asked for better! Will had also been very funny and fun to be with on the bus ride to and from the river. Great trip and a day well spent! I would definitely go back in a heart beat!!
