We were told to be at Montanna Whitewater by 1:00 pm except we didn't start going till about 2:30. The delay was due to the fact that they needed a third guide who unfortunately was not told by Montanna Whitewater he had to work that day. We all had a good time once the trip began. Our guide Walker was very knowledgeable and personable and did a very good job bringing us down the river without any mishaps. He's been doing these trips for a few years now and knows the river well. All six people in our raft had a very good time. The only drawback to the trip was that Montanna Whitewater did a poor job of having enough guides on hand.

As a local from the Livingston area, it was a great way to spend the afternoon. Our guides Chad and Dave were extremely safe, but exceptionally fun! We signed on for the Super Zip and had a great time. I would highly recommend this little adventure. Cheers!

This was my first trip to Montana and my first experience Zip-lining. The staff in the office is a little unorganized and can seem frustrated at times. We opted for the zip and dip with the Super Zip which is 6 lines across. There is a break in between so be advised that there is not anywhere to eat near by. BRING FOOD!

The staff on the zip and dip are both fun and energenic and are very experienced. They know how to have a good time while keeping you safe. It was my first time and I was a little hesitant but the staff helped me through it.

Great choice for a day adventure!!

We want to thank you for your review and are so glad that you enjoyed your Zip and Dip with us. We recognize the fact that with all we have to offer, our office may seem a little disorganized. We are working through all the kinks with the new packages and we appreciate your patience. We will soon have everything straightened out and set to go for next season.

As for the food, we generally have our cafe (Blazing Paddles Cafe) open from Memorial Day to Labor Day so that our customers can enjoy a bite to eat before heading off to their next adventure. Unfortunately, this season, our cook could not finish out the season due to an injury.

We love to hear that you were able to conquer the Zipline and Rafting and we hope you visit us again!

We really enjoyed it, but be careful when making reservations. They are VERY disorganized in the office. We wanted to do the 6 zipline package, and when we arrived, they had us down for only the 3 zipline package. Our son was especially disappointed. They couldn't accommodate a change unless we came back later in the afternoon. But, the 3 zips that we did were really fun for all four of us. Even our 7 year old daughter was able to do it and loved it!

Thank you for your review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your zipline trip. It is unfortunate that you were unable to do the Super Zip and we are extremely sorry about the disorganization. We are still adjusting to having the Super Zip offered and since it has to workout with the classic zip tour it is a little hard to adjust quickly.

We are so happy to hear you and your family enjoyed it, and we hope you visit us again!

We spent a day at Montana Whitewater Rafting & Zipline while visiting Yellowstone in the third week of August. We're a young family and were traveling with another young family. Our 7-year old son and our friends daughters ( aged 7 and 9) had an absolute blast on the zip line course. Our guides, Chad and George, were amazing and went out of their way to ensure we had a good and safe time. The staff were committed to safety and the equipment we used was first rate. After the zip line course, we took to the Gallatin River for an afternoon of whitewater rafting with our guide, Sam. One of our girls was quite apprehensive about being on the water and Sam went out of his way to control our descent down the river and re-assure her that the raft was stable and we wouldn't end up in the water. Our son had so much fun on the water that he didn't want to get out of the raft at the end of our trip! Overall we were very impressed with the facility and the professionalism of our guides. The day produced many fond memories that we'll cherish for years to come and we would highly recommend Montana Whitewater Rafting to our friends.
