It was the first time, we wanted to try out White Water Rafting and our friends found this beautiful attraction just couple of hours drive from my place. Hence, we decided to hit on the weekend and made on-line reservation. With not much of an expectation, we just followed the directions given on website as no clear address is available... More

Hi! You just squeezed in on Arizona's Salt River just before we had to call the season due to the water dropping. Join us next season and you will be surprised at the rapids when the water is higher! The canyon will be just as beautiful and the staff just as good! More

We rafted the Salt River Canyon today, and wow! It was a ton of fun. Our guide was great and took great care of us on our 5 hour trip. He was friendly and very knowledgable. Customer service when booking our trip was also top notch, the process was a breeze. We will definitely be using Mild to Wild again.... More

My family and I experienced the Salt River tour last week. The water was high and there were many boats going out. Everyone was very friendly and helpful but we found ourselves trying not to fall asleep the entire ride. The rapids were fun but there were not enough of them for us. Lunch was great. Steak, pasta salad, veggies.... More

My 10-year-old daughter and I were guided down the Salt River by our terrific and informative guide, Brendon. Our five hour trip included the perfect mix of excitement and amazing scenery. Brendon was extremely informative about the geology of the amazing Salt River Canyon. He mixed in plenty of fun, as well. It was only our raft and two others... More

Most scenic, most adventursome of more than 20 river trips I've taken in three continents. 26 miles of continuous whitewater in a narrow canyon framing snow capped peaks. The guides were great and the food and campsite were perfect.

Hi! We are so glad we delivered on the customer service! We wish we could have provided more water for your rafting trip. The river can be up and down in the fall depending on the rains.
