Gates of the Mt Tour was beautiful and fun! Our Capt, Brian was a great tour guide, knowlegable, friendly and funny! We could have stayed on the river for another hour!
This tour was a highlight of our trip! We will recomend it to our friends!
Well organized. Guide very knowledgeable Price
reasonable for seniors.
We had not been to The Gates of the Mountain tour since 1973. It was such an emotional trip since we lost both of our parents last year and our childhood memories came flooding back. Our tour guide was excellent and his forty year’s at The Gates are much appreciated. I have recommended returning to The Gates to all of our Bozeman friends since they have not been in years. I will also post our trip on our Air B&B site and recommend The Gates to our guests, include a link for the website and promote booking their trip on line.
Best Tiur Guide I’ve ever had!
Knowledgeable guide, comfortable boat. Just long enough
The tour guide was very well informed on the entire area and the boat was relaxing and clean.
I enjoyed my tour. The only difficulty was that several other passengers were carrying on a constant and loud conversation through the guided portion of the trip. I know it is not up to Brian to teach people manners, but if he had some way to nicely remind rude people to hush it would be helpful.
Lovely way to experience the Missouri river. Our captain/tour guide gave us excellent information to keep us "tuned in" for the two hours. I especially liked the song he played as we headed back to the marina - it gave the tour another dimension. I would recommend this tour to folks of all ages weather you're passing through or local.
The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The scenery was spectacular. It was a pleasant trip and the right length and time. Good value for the money.
The captain was very informative and funny. He made sure everyone got to see what he was talking about
It was so interesting and the Captain was excellent!!!
Very entertaining guide. Seat cushions were a little thing...
I'll tip my hand right here at the beginning: this was the best tour of its general kind that my wife and I have ever been on. Ever. Why? One, because the canyon is so extraordinarily beautiful and its history so richly varied; two, because our captain's verbal presentation of that history--and of the geological idiosyncrasies of the canyon itself--was so full of deeply interesting information and anecdotes, and he spoke so ably, clearly and with the convincing sense that he cared about the canyon and its storied history; and, finally, three: (this may have more impact than you suspect) the sound system on the boat was superb! We could hear our captain's voice coming across in well modulated, easy to understand tones. Such a superb sound system in this general kind of setting is rare. All the foregoing is what I'm going to tell anybody that I hear is going to be anywhere near Helena, Montana.
Far exceeded our expectations! The historic information and geological aspects from the canyon were fantastic. A few more minutes at the picnic stop over would have been appreciated, but I understand the time frame. The cost was was very fair, we are making plans to do the cruise again next summer with family members! Thank you!!!
It is a four hour round trip drive from Livingston but our friends from New York thought it was well worth it!
The boat ride was lovely and our guide was EXCELLENT! He was very informative, professional, friendly, and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour to everyone who visits Helena; we were very impressed!!!
This was a lovely scenic boat cruise with LOTS of great commentary along the way. The boat was large and comfortable, you could be inside or out, the PA system was very good (everyone could hear clearly) and the guide was fantastic. It's a beautiful and unique place.... HIGHLY recommend the tour. My only suggestion would be to get better (embroidered) T-shirts!! I would have loved to get one!
Very interesting tour. The boat pilot and guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and it’s
history, and was very entertaining in the way he told his stories. Beautiful scenery
Our guide, a tiny female, was a very thorough guide and told us a lot about the history of the Gates of the Mountains and the tragic story of the men who died in 1949 fighting the fire. We all especially enjoyed when she offered to have twin boys take the helm and steer the Sacawajewa (under her guidance of course!) That really made a big difference to these little ones. thank you for a very enjoyable ride!
Incredible experience for a great value! Tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable.
Great tour and Brian (boat captain) is in the best seat for the company. Great tour guide!
We are from SC and visiting family in Montana. The Gates of the Mountains was suggested for us to do while in Montana. We had ages from 24 - 80. The boat ride was enjoyed by all ages. Our guide was very informative!!! I would suggest this for any group, any age!
The cruise was wonderful, the captain was exceptional in making sure everyone could see all that he pointed out . The price was very reasonable.
Fully recommend this! Incredible!!
Perfect weather. Brian(?) was a perfect guide. Very knowledgeable and spoke slowly enough for all of us to hear and understand. Very reasonably priced. Love the tour.
I grew up in GF, and didn't know the history of the area, until now. Thank you so much.
