Excellent guides that know the local stories and rock formations. We had a wide variation of folks in our raft and we worked as a team within a few strokes. Go early before the river gets busy, this allows you to see more of the river and less rafts. Definitely gives you a feeling how lucky the guides are to... More

Our group of 7 had a great time on the Ocoee with Stiles and Jacob as our guides. The office staff were nice and helpful and we were able to get on the river quickly after a short bus ride. An excellent plus were the warm showers waiting for us when we came back. It was a very fun trip... More

Went white water rafting with an old school friend and my son. Booked through Rolling Thunder and had a wonderful time. Stiles was a great guide and the trip was very memorable even though the water was cold. Would highly recommend white water rafting and Rolling Thunder for a great day on the river.

I went white water rafting and our tour guide, Lilly, was awesome! Three people fell out of the raft and she stayed calm and helped effectively. The whole river was really fun and i would definitely come a second time!

If you go on this amazing adventure, go with Lily. Lily is an awesome guide! My beau and I went with another couple and we saw that this company had the space and the best price. There were about 30 other people there but only 6 to a raft. So larger groups could be split up. In the beginning they... More

Rolling Thunder was one of the excursions on a girls trip - 8 girls, some who had never rafted before. From the most inexperienced (and scared) to the daredevils in our group, we had an absolute blast! The staff is very friendly and walks you through everything you need to know. Newbies might be a little frightened by the cautions... More
