First time river rafting experience and we all loved it. Even though we didn't had a reservation, their staff friendly welcomed us and quickly arranged a trip for four of us. Jeff was an excellent guide. He made sure that all of us enjoyed the trip sound and safe. Overall a fun filled, informative and memorable trip.

The river was a bit low, our guide told us, so the rapids weren't as wild as we had hoped, but that's not the company's fault. My wife had forgot to pack shorts and our guide, Pat, loaned her his strap belt and some quick-dry shorts for her to wear. That made the trip much more enjoyable for her (wet... More

First and the best thing I liked about Wild west rafting is they do accept the walk-in's. As we planned the rafting in the last moment and we do not have enough time to move it to other day, the friendly staff helped us to take just 4 of us on that evening. We started at around 4:30 in the... More

This was a first for all five of us. What a great place...we were recommended Wild West from our hotel. Caleb was our guide. He made the entire venture a great one. We had a blast. Caleb provided us history, pointed out landmarks, provided us with necessary strategies of the water. The photos that were taken were if great quality... More

We enjoyed the small boat experience for our family of 4! The trip was relaxing, with just enough whitewater to make it fun! The 9 am morning trip was nice, done by lunch time and still plenty of day left for other activities. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun.

We booked the saddle and paddle day trip and were not disappointed! The staff were all friendly and helpful throughout. Jeff was our guide for the rafting and he really added to our experience. Would definitely recommend!

We went on the two hour trip and enjoyed it a lot. The guys running it are showmen and put a real effort into it. It was probably a little less wild then we thought it would be - at no stage was there any chance of anyone falling in (but you can jump in for a swim at certain... More

We've been on whitewater rafting trips in Scotland, Costa Rica and Gallatin in Montana, and the Wild West raft guides for our all day Yellowstone trip were everything you could want. 'Bear Spray' was the quintessential rafting guy - super strong, super funny, and super friendly. We all had a blast laughing and enjoying the river, and felt really safe.... More

In early August, our five-person group, ages 20 to 61, booked a half-day whitewater trip on the Yellowstone River with Wild West Rafting. It was fantastic and one of the highlights of our 11-day Yellowstone/Glacier vacation, which was packed with phenomenal sights and activities! The water was fast and the scenery outstanding. The entire staff, from those checking us in,... More

Did the full day rafting with Kyle, who was one of the most interesting guys I've ever met (in a good way). We were there in August so the rapids were pretty calm. Spring is supposedly the time to go if you want Class IV rapids. The scenery was incredible when we went through Yankee Jim Canyon and my entire... More
