Our group went on the Grande Zip tour (this one is worth the extra little splurge!) with Ryan and Ian. They did an awesome job showing us what to do and interacting with everyone. There were no complaints, everyone had a great time. It was smoky out with nearby fires going on but they made sure to address the situation and let us know what would happen if anything changed. Everything stayed safe for us and everybody had a great time. Would definintely go again.

A most excellent adventure with our guides Garrett and Devon. My group did the Grande Zip tour, and our two guides were relaxed and competent, making everyone feel comfortable and ready to meet the challenge. Garrett dazzled us with a wealth of knowledge, telling us about the history, flora, fauna, and geologic features of the area. I can't say enough about how impressed I was with his depth of knowledge about the Yellowstone ecosystem. His good humor and personal attention to everyone made the adventure all the more enjoyable. Devon was wonderful at calming first timers nerves and making sure everyone had a good time. Above all, they were attentive to safety. A very exceptional experience. Two thumbs up!

This was our first time Ziplining and it was awesome! We did the Yellowstone Ranch Zip Tour out of Gardiner. Our Guides, Devon and Josh were great - very knowledgeable, patient and helpful especially for those in our party that were outside of their comfort level. My 9 & 11 year old Boys loved this and still say it was one of the best adventure they've ever had.

“Great for first time rafters”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

My family and I decided to hit the rapids. We chose Montana Whitewater because of the reviews. We were not disappointed.

As first time rafters and with young kids, we were a bit nervous. But the team at MWRC were able t answer al of our questions and insure that it would be a great experience.

Sean was our guide and he put us to work ...lol. Once we were "geared up" we jumped on the bus and headed to the launch location. At the river, Sean went over some quick safety rules, checked all of our vests and we were on our way.

We hit some mild rapids right away and Sean gave some historic information about the area. Some parts of the river were slow and I was ready to fall asleep. Other spots gave you a quick adrenaline hit. We had the opportunity to jump over a go for a swim....that cold river wakes you up fast!

A quick 2 hours later we were at the end and the bus brought us back. The staff has this routine down to a science.

If you're visiting the area take a quick ride.. You won't regret it.

“River fun rapids!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We had an awesome time on the river! Our guide Luke was great! The river was a bit low because of the time of year we went (July). Luke took us on some fun rapids, he made the trip very enjoyable. He was very friendly and likable. The couple that was with us were also friendly. We had a great time!
