We started out with a horseback in the mountains. It was so beautiful! We crossed a bridge and creeks and took in some great scenery. When we were done we went on to the rafting. Tanner was our guide and was extremely fun to go out with. We loved his stories and how he went out of his way to make sure we had the time of our lives. Our 7 year old grand daughter Bella laughed the entire time and is telling everyone about the fun she had. Tanner was an excellent guide and we would highly recommend him when you go. You'll love it!

Myself, husband, 7yr old son and father took a rafting trip with Wild West and it was fabulous! Our guide (Thor, also amazing) was fantastic. He was funny and easy to talk to and a great person to be around. In fact the entire staff, from office to guide to even the trainee's we saw, we helpful and polite. The trip started out with some great splashes and didn't disappoint the whole way, we found ourselves very much disappointed when it came to an end. We got some great pictures before the trip and on the river (by Wild West) We are planning another trip next summer with the whole family!

My daughter turned 12 while we were in Yellowstone and her wish was to whitewater raft on her birthday. I happened upon Wild West's brochure at a gas station at the NE entrance. Little did we know how lucky we were! Wild West was professional and fun from the moment we walked in the door. Our guide, Tanner, was absolutely incredible! He was very personable, shared great information, wanted us to have fun, and was very knowledgeable about rafting. It was his first year being a guide, but he was confident and clearly had a lot of experience and training. He told us stories, showed us particular things along the way and even taught our girls how to row. We have whitewater rafted before, but never got to "ride the bull", jump in the water, and balance on the end. We felt very safe and in great hands. Request Tanner as your guide and your trip will be over the top! You cannot go wrong with Wild West!

The Yellowstone River was the perfect way for my friends and I to enjoy a vacation stop in Gardiner and Wild West did not disappoint! The trip went flawless and was a great balance of fun and professionalism from start to finish. If you have a few hours to spare on your Yellowstone vacation, rafting is the thing to do and Wild West is the place to help you get the most for your money.

We did the half-day whitewater rafting trip down the Yellowstone river and had a great time. The water level of the river was fairly high and we enjoyed some nice rapids! The employees and everyone we encountered at Wild West Rafting were friendly and well-trained. They also make sure everyone is having a good time. There are a number of whitewater rafting companies in Gardiner, but you'll be glad you chose Wild West Rafting!
