There were 4 of us, 2 dads with our adult sons. This was a first class trip. We did 3 days and 2 nights on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. The fishing was great. Our guides were Marc Evans and Chad Dubose and they were excellent. Paul was the setup guy. The camps were set up and ready when we got there, the food was great. Lots of fun and lots of laughs. We got more than we expected and will definitely be back!

My knees won't handle whitewater rafting anymore, but Glacier Raft's float trip was exceptional. Although the water is low in September, we were able to get thru the riffles with only an occasional bump, and the deep water areas are amazing. Turquoise water from the glacier melt (was was 52 degrees), and trout looking up at you. Lovely canyon areas along with 2-1/2 hour trip. Our guide, Gary, knew a lot about the area and other mountain facts, like forest fire logistics (there were lots of fires south of Glacier, and occasional smoke drifted north). Jess took our photos and handled reservations, including making us a DVD. Great folks.

Had a wonderful overnight raft trip with Erik at the end of August. Water was rather low, which was just right for our son to get some thrills but not get scared. Erik was a wonderful guide - knowledgeable, funny, great cook and great with our son. The food was fantastic, campsite scenic, tent roomy and hot coffee divine when we woke up. All in all, a fantastic family trip with a very professional guide and company. Thank you!

This was an experience well worth the money! The Company is professional, instructive and entertaining. Our rafting guide, Chris was a great sport and pleasantly interactive. September isnt a time known for raging waters, yet we still had a great time!

My family visited Glacier National Park in August and went river rafting for the day. What a fun time! We got geared up in the morning (wet suits and booties were available but it was hot, so they weren't necessary) then took the bus to our takeoff point. My 8 yr old son and 12 yr old daughter were a bit nervous since they'd never gone river rafting, but our guide, Travis, was wonderful. He gave us a safety lesson first off and made sure everyone understood what to do. The rapids were fairly tame, which my son was glad about. Travis was very knowledgeable about the area and we could tell he really loved the area and loved what he did. We did the all day rafting trip and lunch was served; it was delicious, and there was plenty for everyone.

The only negative thing I'd say about this trip is that it was a little long for my 8 yr old, so if you have young ones, the 1/2 day trip may be a better choice. Otherwise, great trip, highly recommended!
