What people are saying about Wyoming

My husband & I went with our daughters ages 11 & 14 and had an AWESOME time. There are nice calm parts & just enough rapids to keep it fun but not scary. All 4 of us agree this excursion was the highlight of our trip to Grand Teton & Yellowstone. Also, you are able to rent water shoes & wet suits which was great!

We had the best time. Roslyn was an excellent guide and had such a great personality. It made it all that much more enjoyable.

The ziplines were amazing and the views were beautiful. The guides were very knowledgeable and made sure everyone was safe.
