The trip down the Yellowstone River was one of the highlights of a truly memorable vacation. On top of that, it's a really great value! All of our interactions, from beginning to end, were with knowledgeable, engaged staff. In particular, our guide (Patrick) who actually went down the river with us, was excellent! He knew his stuff, did not fluff... More

Did the full-day, and had a lot of fun. Easy to book, good communication up-front, and helpful staff. Our guide (John) was a last-minute injury fill-in, and was great. One of the best days of our Yellowstone trip!

This company is wonderful. They are incredibly professional and a lot of fun at the same time. Rob made us feel completely comfortable and like we were in good hands. He was a very patient instructor and a very knowledgeable guide. Their equipment is in really good condition and they could not be more conveniently located. It was really a... More

We found this group to be perfect. They kept us informed in the weeks prior to our reservation by occasional emails, giving us hints and suggestions without overwhelming our inbox. They were kind starting with staff at check in. They have all the gear, treated our children so nice, they made the check in and getting dressed pleasant. Spacious changing... More

Nice guide - we were the only three of us in the raft. We did not want to get wet at all - the water was super cold and we were not up for a wet raft session. The waters were calm - at times choppy but the guide was very good with navigating us around the choppy waters.

We took a 2 hour raft trip the week before Memorial Day weekend. The town wasn't too crowded yet, so we had the raft to ourselves! Our guide was Jason and he was awesome! He was hysterical and gave us some tips and history of Yellowstone. The raft ride itself was nothing too hard to handle, we had a blast!... More

We had a great experience! Because of my husband's physical limitations we did the float rather than the white water rafting. It was a lovely day and our guide was so accommodating. I enjoyed it so much that white water rafting is now on my bucket list. Thanks for a great day on the river!

My husband and I really enjoyed our 2 hour raft trip with yellowstone raft company. The guide was friendly and helped us learn the ropes. It was our first time rafting and has left us wanting to do more! The river was exciting but not enough to get us soaked. It has left us wanting to try white water rafting... More
