Despite trying to outsmart Mother Nature, our white water rafting reservation was on a colder-than-expected, rainy day. I hate being cold, and I was pretty hesitant to put on a wet suit and try rafting for the first time under such conditions. Our guide, Amber, kept gently guiding our group forward (especially me) and we ended up having an absolutely... More

Amazing tour and guides. Hiking and rafting tailored to our needs. Jeremy was our hiking guide. He was warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Couldn't have envisioned going to Glacier without him. Truly an expert. Amber was our river raft guide. Super enthusiastic and safe. Kids loved her. I would highly recommend anyone traveling to Glacier to sign up w Glacier... More

We got lucky with glorious late September weather; maybe the last run of the season. River was low, but still fast enough to make for a few fun rapids. Good guide.

At the end of September these were largely grade 2 rapids and were just exciting enough for us. Water levels were low, but not too low, the weather was clear and warm and the guide was awesome. This is a 3 hour tour, with plenty of white water and plenty of gliding. The surrounding scenery is wonderful, and the information... More

We visited Montana in Sep end, and hiked with Glacier Guides on Sep 23 to Iceberg Lake. My wife and I had read a lot about grizzly bears before this visit and were really scared. However, hiking with Glacier Guides was such a comforting experience. With their rangers around, we didn't even carry near sprays with us (yeah, they carry... More

I was visiting Glacier Park and fortunate enough to participate on a hike with Glacier Guides - who was fortunately still operating a few tours in the post-season. Ross was our guide and he very personable, knowledgeable, and accommodating to the needs of the group. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather (which I hear is variable in early October)...

I booked a 6 day backpacking trip. I had tons of questions for several months and the staff was always quick, thoughtful, and knowledgeable in their responses. On the trip the guide was great, food was wonderful, and overall the experience could not have been better. I've been recommending this company to anyone who will listen.

We did the day long fly fishing trip. The guide AJ was great. Worked hard to assist us in the correct way to fish the river. We caught several fish. Lunch that was provided was good. The trip is about 7 miles down the river.

Outstanding. Iceberg Lake was with Emily and Jeremy. I was a little worried about doing this hike. Their pacing and encouragement helped me to complete this hike. HIghline Trail with Ross was awesome!.
