Booked the paddle and saddle through Yellowstone Raft Company. Had a group of 13. Marley at Specimen Creek Horseback riding was phenomenal. The views were gorgeous and my family loved the experience.

We had 2 boats:guides for our group. My families guide was very knowledgeable about the region/river. We asked lots of questions about the area. The river was cloudy the day we went but was a nice scenic ride. No major Rapids.

Staff was pleasant and helpful. Recommend planning an extra 15-30 minutes in travel time to arrive. Took us much longer than anticipated. - even more than company suggested.

We had 6 in our family ages 17-72 and everyone had a great time. Something we will talk about for years! The staff was very welcoming and knowledgable. From all the questions we had over the phone to the end of the trip, they were great.

Our guide, Kyle (who was awesome) went over safety precautions and what to do if someone went overboard. He was a great guide and never made us feel like we were inadequate even tho some in our group had never been rafting before. I was impressed. When we did have someone go overboard, we knew exactly what to do and the other rafts in our group were also coming to help. We had a good laugh afterward.

We took the all day raft trip. We stopped for lunch after 8 miles and it wasn't just a sandwich. They had a nice spread laid out for us with bread, lunchmeat, cheese, lettuce, peppers, cucumbers, watermelon, cantaloupe, hummus, chips, cookies and I'm sure I forgot something. It was a nice break.

I would recommend anyone choose Yellowstone Raft Company for your next raft trip.

The guides and the crew were awesome. We did get caught in a hail storm but it passed quickly. The rapids were pretty tame for my taste but was still a great time for a fair price.

You get to participate in the entire rafting adventure which includes carrying the raft to the water, paddling and taking the raft out. It was a great introduction to rafting for first timers including my two grandchildren ages 7 & 9. They wanted to go again immediately! Yellowstone Raft Co was very accommodating when we had to reschedule our trip for later in the day.

Our family went on our first (for most of us) rafting trip with the Yellowstone Raft Co. We had a blast! Half of us whitewater rafted and the other half just went on a scenic trip. A great first-time experience. Our guide, Patrick, had a great personality, was very knowledgable, and we felt safe with him. The whole staff was fun, informative, and very helpful. Overall great time!
