Whitewater rafting company recommendation?

Who would you recommend we use for a whitewater rafting trip in the GNP area? We have 4 adults and 2 boys, ages 11 & 8...all adventurous! Want to know who offers the best guides etc. Thanks!

Without a doubt - Glacier WIlderness Guides. They are the only ones I recommend and use. I live in Whitefish - 25 miles from W. Glacier - we use them every year for a company trip and they never disappoint. They have been on the rivers for decades and run a good show. I always tell friends that visit that this company is their only option.

I had a great experience a couple of years ago with Glacier Raft Co. If Kate aka Kokanee Kate is still a guide I'd would request her. Her grandmother lives on the river in West Glacier. Kate had a wealth of information on the area as well as some great stories.

Spent yesterday 7/1 on a full day float with Glacier Guides. Awesome experience in every way. They provided wet suits and every other thing you could think of. Our guide Dean was remarkable, full of history,geology, local lore. Great lunch provided too.

All the raft companies travel the same stretch of the river so there really isn't a difference between them. We go a couple of times a season and use Glacier Raft Company. Most important when choosing a raft company is experienced guides. This company has the most senior guides on the river. Good luck!
