Very informative. This is a must for anyone at all interested in the history of the lives of the past cultures and cultures. The dig sites are so full of evidence of what was happening in the time period...1500 to 2000 years ago.

We visited here and were lucky enough to end up with a private tour. The guide was friendly and knowledgable and even though she has done it for four years still engaged us. Worth seeing if you are in Havre.

Hannah and Paul were very knowledgeable. We were very fortunate to visit while they were working. I greatly appreciated their insight into the events and discovery of the jump. I also appreciated that they were willing to answer many questions even though we didn't have time for the tour. They are great ambassadors for this location.

Obviously the result of passion and dedication, this site is important in understanding the peoples of this area over the centuries. To actually see the buffalo jump and the surrounding geography, elevation, river, etc., helps to bring to life a way of live that might otherwise be forgotten. I highly recommend.

The stairs down to the site are quite long but have a handicap site. This site is very interesting and the digs have many years of layers showing every time the buffalo were run over the cliff.

The young girl who did our tour was very knowledgeable and so friendly. It is a summer job for her, but she clearly loves teaching. She was kind to our teens and our toddlers. We were a busy group. Thank you for hiring staff that truly care about history and make it fun.
