I went with a large group of people, and although we were in different rafts, we were all able to participate and enjoy this experience together. The instructors were super nice and very informative. I also recommend sitting in the front of the raft if you want to get soaked! This was overall a great experience and I hope to... More

I would completely recommend this rafting trip for your family! We went with grandpa, and two daughters, 9 & 11. I have to admit I was afraid, having never done white water rafting before. But the experience was very enjoyable! Both of my children even braved jumping out of the raft into the river. We were able to jump from... More

We ad a great day on the river with Montana River Guides. The guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. Safety was paramount and we felt very comfortable with the initial briefing, the safety equipment, and the people. Lunch was delicious. I highly recommend this experience!

There were 9 of us, all family, and they accommodated us all in one raft. This was my immediate family's 3rd white water raft trip (1 in CO and 1 in Absarokee) and I was pleasantly surprised when we were offered the wet suits without cost as it was an additional charge on the other 2 raft trips. I think... More

There were 6 of us, all family, who took the 1/2 day trip. It was a bit chilly and we were all very concerned that we would freeze! The folks at Mountain River Guides couldn't have been nicer about it. We are from California and not used to the cold or even cool temperature. They understood and even offered to... More

Great trip for both Montanans and for those out of state. Maddy was a great guide...knowledgeable of the geography and the water. She added tidbits throughout the trip. Even in August with low water, it did not disappoint. Our guests enjoyed it.

Great people and beautiful scenery. The perfect river trip. The rapids were exciting, but not at all scary for kids. The calm water was gorgeous!

On a road trip to visit our son who lives in Montana, we decided to take our four kids (ages 15-25), and my son's fiance, on their first white water rafting trip. I'm so glad we picked Montana River Guides! All of the staff at the office were friendly, they were very accomodating on the phone when we changed the... More

I have gone on several trips with Montana River Guides and they have all been amazing. Each guide is well versed in corny jokes, biological information about the area, and fun raft lore. The size of rapids depends on the time of your trip within the season. Each time i've gone the rapids are really fun for adults and kids... More
