We had a great time, and a wonderful lunch and awesome guides Taylor, Jackie and Chloe. We had a nine year old and an 18 year old autistic young man with us and it all went great! They accommodated gluten free and picky eaters.

We went rafting and Jen was our guide and she was awesome! Definitely fun for the family! Jen made the trip better than it could've been if we had a boring raft guide. Get Jen!!!!

Went down the river with husband and two children. Kids said this was the best day of their Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Glacier Odyssey. Kudos to our guides and our run over Jaws.

Response from Megan G | Reviewed this property |
for a half day which turned out to be 2/5 hours it was about $60 a person. It depends how swiftly the river is running as to how long it will take. I felt it was a reasonable price with a reputable company.
