My husband and I recently went on our first white water rafting trip with Yellowstone Raft Co. and we had an amazing time! Emily was our guide and she was great - patient and clearly articulated exactly what we needed to do. The trip was 8 miles long on mild rapids, so nothing too strenuous. Would be a great trip...

Perfect experience all the way through. Very friendly reception at the office and very friendly bus ride with John. Ask for Jason for your rafting tour. He's great fun and makes the trip just awesome. However, don't leave Yellowstone without taking a rafting tour with Yellowstone Raft. It's worth every penny. Thanks guys.

What a great time! Our family of 7 including Grandma, Grandpa and 3 kids ages 12,11 and 9 could not have had a better time. Emily did a great job from the start from the safety briefing to getting all of us engaged in paddling. The rapids were great and the lunch was plenty to fill us up for the... More

This rafting experience was class A from the very beginning! Booking online is easy, and they send pertinent information (what to wear, bring, etc) right after. They also sent a reminder email - very thorough! The whole day trip was so much fun! Rapids were fast, but doable, and with our more than capable guide, we always felt safe. Emily... More

We chose YRC because there were knowledgeable, safety conscious adults at the counter. We loved YRC because it was safe but it was fun. Took 8 kids and 4 adults, kids ages 12-18. It isn't a great time of year to catch Rapids but Jason went out of his way to keep it interesting and the kids LOVED him. Lots... More

We love outdoor activities and we chose to do this rafting trip it was my wife's first time rafting and this was perfect. They had class III rapids in some areas, rolling water in others and smooth water where you can actually just jump in the water and ride next to the raft. If you're adventurous you can ride the...

Canadians rafting the Yellowstone river!! Booked online, very easy. Guides were phenomenal, felt safe the entire day! Do not have enough good things to say about our trip! The one thing I might change is that we did a lot of calm-water floating between rapids, but our guide (Clancy) was very knowledgeable about the area and the mountains, which made... More

From the time we first booked the trip to getting to the take out on the river, it was the highlight of our trip to the area. I've no doubt all the guides are great, but EMILY was truly amazing! The trip down the river and running the rapids was fun for all of us and she made it spectacular.... More
