We went with a group of six aged 11 to 50-something most of whom had never zip lined before. Matt and Garrett made us feel comfortable and relaxed when things seemed a little scary, talking to each person to calm her down as she got ready to take off. Despite their corny jokes (and to be honest, we did repeat them later to the rest of our traveling companions), they showed us a great time. They also knew a lot about the area and the wildlife (the Latin name for bison is bison bison) so we felt like we got the inside tourist information along with our zip line tour. Thanks for the good time, guys!

What a fabulous experience from start to finish. Booking was extremely easy, it took just one phone call and it was done, complete with full instructions. The check in and payment was also easy, even with multiple groups checking in at the same time. All the necessary gear is included in the cost of the rafting trip. Our group of 8, ranging in age from 9 to 6o +, did the half-day raft on the Gallatin. They were able to accommodate us all in the same raft. Our guide Gavin, was superb. It was clearly evident that he was very experienced. His instructions, from safety procedures, to rafting instructions were all clear and easily understood. He kept us informed during the whole trip of what was to come & how we were going to proceed. He was quick to point out wildlife he spotted on the way. Gavin was very friendly, personable and so easy going, that even the unsure members of our group were put at ease. He was amazing with the young kids in our group, letting them rotate from riding the bull to sitting in the back helping to paddle. Many smiles, giggles and laughter was had by all, creating great memories for our family. We were very surprised at the end of the trip with the great photos that were taken by professional photographers during the trip. I believe we received 58 photos on a CD for only $59 and they all were fabulous shots. Certainly more than reasonably priced.

The 1/2 day rafting trip down the Gallatin River was amazing. The booking and scheduling was a little sketchy and our dates and times were mixed up for our fly fishing trip and our rafting trip, but the office after long conversations with several employees and then finally speaking with the owner, Bill, acted as if he had no choice and helped us out. Now with the complaint with the office staff done. I now want to express how wonderful each of our guides were on the two trips we purchased. On our fly fishing trip, Alex was amazing, he was patient and very knowledgeable about the science and the technique of fly fishing. Then for the whitewater rafting trip our guide, Sam, was great. He was very informative and experienced in rafting which made the trip exciting and he was so nice and friendly. Overall the two trips were wonderful and provided great memories for our family. The little hiccup in the trip planning was upsetting but in the end we had a great time.

Loved everything except the long wait for the buses to take us to our drop off. The pick up was speedy. Fantastic!

We took 16 members from a Boy Scout and Venturing crew on a trip out west and did a trip with Montana White Water. We did the Super Zip and Dip on the Gallatin. Being a larger group with a varying age of people, they were extremely aware and concerned with our safety. The staff on the zip were extremely friendly and very fun. We had several members afraid of heights and they helped them overcome their fears. The whitewater guides were equally friendly and fun. They knew the river well and how to handle the different situations and rapids. Everyone had a blast. The only complaint is they could have been a little more organized when it came to getting ready for the rafting trip. We sat around in our wetsuits for 30 minutes and were not kept up on things, difficult especially with a large group. Other than that, awesone trip and staff.
