I had never rated before but my husband had as it appears had everyone else in our boat but I absolutely loved it and going by the general mood of all in the boat it's fair to say they did too. Before we started I was nervous about flying out of the boat or the raft tipping over but it... More

We did the full day trip for $80. Our guide Carter was great. He was entertaining and had some great stories. About half way through the trip, we stopped at a small river beach and had lunch (included). The van ride to the river drop off point is 2-3 minutes from town. The van ride back was quick - it...

Had a great couple of hours whitewater rafting down the Yellowstone River. We were 2 adults and 2 kids (12 & 9) plus there were 2 other and a guide. The guide was great and really added to the fun. We got a little wet but the supplied gear kept us (fairly) warm. Our 9yo persuaded the guide to let... More

There were 6 people in our party. This company sent us an email 2 weeks before our set day, explaining what clearly would be needed. Was rapid in responding to interactive emails. Once our day arrived we got set up to go. Liz was our guide and what a fantastic job she did. She was personable, funny, and very well... More

We had a fantastic time on the full-day trip. Our guide, Liz, was well skilled, informative, and fun. The lunch provided was delicious. I highly recommend the full day trip through Yankee Jim canyon. The canyon was the best part of the trip and even with the full day we weren't ready for it to be over.

Our family of 5, including a 4 year old, all took the Scenic River rafting trip. Everyone had so much fun! When granddaughter gets old enough, we will go back and do the wild water trip! I have rafted with many of the countries best rafting companies, and I would rate the Yellowstone Rafting Company amoung the best. Really impressed... More

I had never been Whitewater Rafting before and was a little apprehensive during the safety brief. However this all added to the sense of anticipation. There were 11 of us and Captain Jack and it was a thrill from start to finish. THe whole thing lasted about 2 hours but it flew by. The guides were fun and enthusiastic and... More

We decided to try rafting with young children (ages 4-8) and seniors and couldn't be more pleased with Yellowstone Raft Company. I can't compare them to other local rafting companies, but we were satisfied. Do your homework to get the best rates and experience! Don't expect class 4 or 5 rapids. Even the class 3 rapids are quite mild and... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids ages 5 & 6) did the 2 hour scenic trip. We had a great time. Our guide, Ben, did a great job. It was a fun trip down the river and the kids loved swimming in the river. I would recommend this trip to families with young children.

I was impressed with this company. We had met a young lady the previous evening and were talking about going on one of the raft excursions. Found out she worked for this company and would be happy to be our guide the next day if we so wished. We liked her and were very happy we did so. This was... More
