“Love this company! Rafted with them 3 times.”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I have used this company every time that I have rafted in Yellowstone. I cannot say that they are better than the other companies, but I CAN say that they are GREAT. Sarah at the front desk is a delight and takes great photos of the trip. Our guide was Daniel, a Mississippi lad with a thick fantastic accent. We saw two bald eagles on our trip and stopped at the hot beach. This was a highlight of our trip. The prices for rafting in Gardiner are HALF what they cost in Jackson. We rafted both and they are comparable as far as fun, but Yellowstone cannot be beat for the price and the friendliness of the staff. Our twins were six and loved it!

“The original rafting company in Gardiner”
Reviewed July 24, 2012 via mobile

Our guide, Sarah, was excellent. She is a native of Gardiner and knows a lot about the area, restaurants, wildlife and geology. She was great with the kids. YRC gives you a little longer trip than the competition -- put in upstream and take put downstream of other operators we saw. Highly recommended.

“Great raft trip! Highly recommend.”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Big group of a mix of experienced and first time rafters....age range from 9 to 74. It was fantastic. The staff was amazing both in the shop and on the river. We had two boats and two great guides. I highly recommend this company if you need a whitewater experience in Yellowstone.

“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 :-)
