What Our Guests Have To Say About Our Guided Day Hikes In Glacier National Park:

“We had a FANTASTIC guide, Ryan, for our day tour and we can’t compliment him enough. Please feed this back and we thoroughly recommend that you request his services for other guests.”

Mr. and Mrs. S., Custom Day Hike: Avalanche Lake

“Katie was perfect for our group! My parents were quite nervous and she was very nurturing which eased their fears. I think they also appreciated the safety education and the description of what was coming up on our trip down. Thanks for the fun experience!”

Gingie G., Half Day Whitewater

“Greetings! Just wanted to comment on a GREAT rafting experience we had with your company this week. From the first call I made to you until we finished back at your office, I want to say EVERYONE there was just GREAT! Very Friendly, efficient, and confident that a land-lover from ND could make the trip! I expecially want to thank DEAN for his patient instruction, his wealth of information about the river and the park, and his FUN attitude! What a nice guy! Thanks again for a great time and I will most certainly recommend your company to anyone that might be going to Glacier!”

Barb and Tom P., Half Day Whitewater

“Made me want to choose Glacier Guides because staff was generous with their time. What to wear? What to bring? What to expect? All of these were answered fully and (we discoverd) honestly. Even after all the changes I made, I still felt wanted.
I know it was not in your control, but weather was perfect. Our guide, Amy, was friendly yet professional – we felt at ease and safe in her hands. Glacier Guides are happy, friendly people who love what they do always make a great experience for customers…move to Chicago, so that we can enjoy your service more often!!”

Eileen G., Half Day Whitewater

“Teal was our guide. She did a fabulous job! Our family had a great time. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Glacier Nat’l Park. Thanks!”

Timothy M, Half Day Whitewater

“Emily was amazing. She was fun and personable and very knowledgeable on the area, not just the water! I have rafted with another group and would definitely recommend you over them. You made it a fun and memorable experience!”

Miranda B., Half Day Whitewater

“I recently had the experience of hiking with Jeremy Covert with 6 Australian ladies and 1 New Zealand lady. As a fan of hiking and walking I really enjoyed Jeremy’s knowledge of all fun and interesting facts relating to the park. Jeremy was very well organised and as a vegan Jeremy was well informed of my dietary requirements and prepared yummy snacks and lunch. It was an absolute pleasure to share the day with Jeremy. The hike was not the reason I travelled to Montana but my experience and  memories of one day in the beautiful Glacier Park ended up being the absolute highlight of my entire trip. I absolutely loved it . Please extend my gratitude to Jeremy and thank you for showing me this beautiful part of Montana.”

Janice P., Day Hike

“Recently traveled to Montana and booked both a three day backcountry trip and an afternoon whitewater rafting excursion with Glacier Guides. Both trips were perfect. Our backcountry trip was led by Katie, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Katie knows the area so well, and shared interesting information with us throughout the trip that greatly enhanced our experience. Her cooking was wonderful, and she helped us to remain calm through a couple of minor wildlife encounters. We were also really please with the thought she and Glacier Guides put in to matching us with our traveling counterparts and itinerary for the trip. Our rafting guide, Lauren, was knowledgeable and fun, and shared some great suggestions on what to do in the area. Can’t recommend this company highly enough!”

EllaB0430, Backpacking and Whitewater Rafting

“I went on three of this company’s day hikes and one half-day whitewater rafting trip. Everything was superbly organized and the guides were all excellent (Allison and Ryan for hiking and Vince for rafting). They were all very experienced and knowledgeable about the park — history, geology, plants, and animals. If I hadn’t been with Allison, I never would have noticed the moose munching on vegetation in the water in the distance. I highly recommend this company.”
