Being in our 80’s we were both very pleased with the helpfulness of our guide and driver as we entered and exited the van and raft and especially walking down to the river. We were expecting a pleasant time on the river and it exceeded our expectations. Our guide was exceptionally knowledgeable and fun on our private float trip. A great day at a reasonable price!!

Our guide Bailey was awesome however the overall experience was less than advertised. The trip is advertise as 2 hrs site seeing and possible wildlife. The reality was 1 hr on the water going away from and never in the park with the only wildlife being the people in their backyards.

Hi Eric, thank you for your feedback. We take our clients feedback seriously and use it to help us grow and improve as a business. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed your guide, Bailey. She is an excellent guide and will be happy to hear this. I apologize you feel your trip was less than advertised. We advertise the trip to be approximately 2 hours. We say “approximately” because there are some variables that go into operating on a natural river we cannot control. Typically, you will be floating on the water for an hour and a half. This leaves roughly thirty minutes for transportation time. We do not advertise that we raft in Yellowstone National Park. This would be illegal. There is no rafting allowed inside of Yellowstone. We do, however, border the park for the first several miles of the trip. You floated 6 miles on the Yellowstone River with us. You saw views of Yellowstone National Park and parts of the Gallatin Mountain Range. This we can control. Unfortunately, wildlife we cannot. They are on their own agenda. Often times we will see elk, deer and lots of waterfowl. Sometimes we aren’t as lucky. Our goal is to give all of our guest a great experience on the river. We feel that our stretch of the Yellowstone River is very special and we love to share it with people. Your feedback is appreciated and will help us continue to improve as a business.

Scenic Float on the Yellowstone River

Wild West Rafting was wonderful. Prior to our trip, I had concerns about Covid-19. They were very responsive to my questions. Our scenic float was wonderful. We even conquered some small rapids. Thomas, our guide, who is also the owner, was very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this company for an experience on the Yellowstone River.

This was an amazing experience- we ended up switching over from the scenic tour last minute and we had no regrets! Shout out to Morgan, she was our guide and was such a lovely presence and wonderful energy. I believe she came out of semi-retirement to be our rafting guide for the day, and we could not be more grateful for the opportunity to be in her group.
