“Great day on the River!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We had a fantastic day whitewater rafting on the Gallatin River. The company recommended the more difficult part of the river since the water was very low....which we were unsure about. Their description of what we might experience was very accurate and we all had a great time. Our guide Morgan was fantastic!

“Thrills and chills on the Gallatin River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

My husband and I chose the whitewater rafting trip on the lower Gallatin. We had been on a rafting trip before while in Alaska, but not a participatory one like this. Our guide, Michelle, was skilled, friendly, and provided clear direction. For us, this trip was just the right level of excitement. The staff at Geyser were organized and very helpful. We opted for the lunch offered before rafting, and it was very good.

I also rented a bike from Geyser on 2 other days. A staff person provided me with handwritten directions to a nearby waterfall, Ousel Falls, a 16 mile round trip. This was a very good morning bike ride--mostly uphill headed out, and coasting down Lone Peak on the return trip. Most of the ride was on a beautifully maintained, paved bike trail.

“Great Expedition, Great Photos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Great Rafting Company, Great Photo Memories

Geyser Whitewater Rafting Company planned a Horseback and Raft Adventure for us when we took four of our grandkids to Yellowstone. It was a side trip for us and turned out to be the very favorite of our grandkids! The staff at Geyser were professional, courteous and enjoyable, and we will certainly be “rafting and riding” with them again when we get the chance.

Besides the great experience with Geyser, we especially appreciate the work done by the photographers of Crystal Images, who work with Geyser. I had no idea they were taking pictures during our rafting trip because we were so “busy” with paddling and laughing hysterically. When we returned to the base, we were greeted with the opportunity to see, on computers, an amazing number of pictures of us in the raft at various stages of splashing and rafting. They were awesome!

We had no idea that we’d be able to get these shots! Thank you, Crystal Images, for being there. The looks on the kids’ faces are priceless, some we’d never have gotten with a waterproof camera, or our own. Money well spent, there were 48 shots on a CD for $125, or we could buy less, or order regular prints. The memories of the trip are great, but the pictures bring it back each day! I’m glad we left our memories to the professionals. Instead of pictures being in a photo album, these will be on the wall!

“fun experience, except for the photography”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We were impressed with the friendliness and enthusiasm of the guides, even though the river was very low at the time we went. And having rafted with other MT companies in the past, we were hoping for a little more excitement on the 1/2 day Lower section whitewater trip than was advertised.

One huge negative of the experience was the highway-robbery price of the photos, taken during the trip by Crystal Images photography. We would have loved to have the memento of our trip, but the price is an absolute insult to the customer. (Over $100 for a CD of photos, and upwards of $65 for just three 5x7 prints.) Bring a waterproof camera and don't waste your money.
