“Fun for the entire family!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

My daughter-in-law and I took my two grandsons, ages 8 and 10, on a zip-line adventure July 25. John and Kayla were our guides. They were terrific! They made the kids really comfortable - and me too (I'm the one a little afraid of heights). The scenery was beautiful. We felt very safe. Part of the adventure includes a swinging bridge that was maybe the more challenging part of the adventure. I used my Iphone to make a video of the boys as they walked across - I still enjoy watching it!!

“Awesome experience! A definite do over!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Had a full day rafting day scheduled for two first timers and two one timers. Location perfect from our condo near Big Sky. Everything great from the start to finish. We had a fantastic guide Jeff. He was awesome! patient and very informative also very engaging with our multi generational group of 6. The day was perfect, lunch made by the guides was very substantial. There was too much food! This is a day our family will never forget.The first part of the river trip was very calm, but the second half was a completely different experience , lots of level 1 rapids. We had a blast! Our family of four was very happy and had fun talking to the couple who shared our raft " Freak". Look into this co. Our guide said that one guide took Phil Mickelson and his family on a trip two weeks before he won this years British Open.

“Must do when visiting Yellowstone”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had an amazing time with Jaime and Katelyn on our zip-line adventure. Both guides were amazing and super friendly. Later in the day we went on a whitewater adventure with (don't remember his name, but he had reddish hair) and he was also great. The rafting was pretty calm, with mainly 1's and 2's, but seeing that most of our group was around 10 years old, it was a great experience.

“Now THAT's vacation!”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

If you like some hands-on fun, besides just looking at stuff, you'll love Montana Whitewater. We did a full day, with the complete zipline in the morning and rafting in the afternoon. The zipline course is well-designed and lots of fun. Our guides, Caroline and Jake, were superb! They were encouraging for those who were nervous - especially the kids, and showed confidence in themselves and the equipment. But most of all, they were friendly and enthusiastic. The rafting as also a blast. Our guide, Walker, did a great job of directing us (loud and clear), but went out of his way to show us a good time through the rapids. They provided all the gear and even jackets and shoes for rafting. Bathrooms and changing rooms on site. The food wasn't stellar, but at least they had some. The one thing I think they could do better is to have someone directing people where to go and what to do next in preparing for each adventure. I highly recommend it!
