“Such a fun trip!”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Our guide, Pat, was excellent! He made great conversation with everyone in the raft and made sure we were safe while we had a blast! Not only did he expertly guide our raft through calm and white water, but he also pointed out landmarks and told historical bits of trivia...not to mention his fine 'chef' skills for lunch! He made a loaf of bread and sandwich material seem like a feast at our little picnic area:)

This was a great experience for our family's first rafting experience. It worked out that another family with teens was in our raft, so we made some new friends.

Thanks to the staff at the office also. They sent helpful instructions before our trip so that we were prepared.

Excellent time on the river!

“Our first time = an awesome exprience!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

My family and I had never been white water rafting and I was skittish at first. But once we got in the water, we had a blast! I highly recommend this company to visitors. Alex was our guide and he was awesome. Beautiful scenery and kids loved it too. "Riding the Bull" was the way to go :-)

“8 miles down the Yellowstone River”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

our family of four recently took the half day whitewater rafting tour from Gardiner north. It was a lot of fun, really more float trip andeducation and a smaller portion of actual "white water" and was very enjoyable. the guides were very safety conscious and also had a lot of information on thenarea, history, fishing, hot springs (close up view of springs running right into the river). the provided wetsuits suited us fine for the chillier water and moderte temps n lateish June, but teenagers went with bathing suits and shorts and were fine. you carry your raft down a bit of a hill for launching, and the rafts are rather heavy FYI, but of there was a physical limitation I am sure that the staff would take care of it and send someone besides your guide to assist. a great time was had by all, and the zdozen or so ohotos that we bought on the $35 CD was well worth it as we would not have been able to get those close up action shots otherwise!
