We had a great late August trip down the Gallatin with Montana Whitewater! The facilities were great, equipment in good shape and besides the temps falling into the 50's with intermittent rain, we had a great trip! Our guide was John and he did a great job, especially with our 8 year old son who got the wettest and had... More

Stopped here to do whitewater rafting on our way to Yellowstone. We were a little hesitant because the weather had just turned and it was colder than we expected. However - we had the best time. Wet-suited up - I was slightly scared about falling out of the boat - but our guides gave us a scary but necessary safety... More

We had a beautiful day! We had a party of eight people ages 79-7. We all were amazed at the level of experience and professionalism. We learned a lot but mostly had an AMAZING time. We had John and Brent as guides and they gave us a safe and exciting trip!

Being begineers in ziplining, Luke and Ryan took good care of us, and after the first zipline we were more relaxed.... They were very very careful about safety. A smaller group would have being nicer to remove downtime, but it was still ok. And bonus: the drive to the zipline is already part of the adventure!!! Celine, Houston, TX

Our river guide John was terrific. Made sure we knew what to do. We did the half day river ride. The water was low so it was a little tricky in places, but lovely views even though you can see the nearby road for most of the trip. we're very glad we opted to wear wet suits since it got... More

The views were absolutely incredible, but nothing that can't be seen from riding along 191. Unfortunately it was very cold the day we ratted which detracted from our experience. The guide was a bit immature and did not share very much knowledge of the area with the group. He mostly talked about his own stories/experiences. It was definitely a unique... More

Had a great time ziplining with Luke and Ryan. They were knowledgeable and funny, giving us basically a private session, pointing out various landmarks and the history of the area. Definitely would recommend them and would return to zipline with them again. Watching Ryan run up the rope ladder "Zombie style" was hysterical!

Spent a fantastic morning on the Gallatin River doing the "Classic Half Day" tour. Our guide, Ethan, was great and made the trip! Our 3 kids, ages 10,11 and 13, had a blast and were rock stars through the Mad Mile and Ethan rewarded them with a polar plunge! Another "must do" activity in the Big Sky area.
