The folks at Mild to Wild know how to make a white water rafting trip fun! Our guide was awesome! Knowledgeable, helpful and pretty funny to boot. We tackled some class-4 rapids, and the ride was thrilling and so much fun! I hated to see it end. Even when my brother went overboard, we all laughed and helped pull him... More

Great fun! Guides are fabulous! Full-day tour is worth it for the views! Taylor is the guide you should request. Drive to Telluride from Durango is a million dollar experience.

Took a group down the river with these guys in early June. River was lower because of the time of year. Loved the float. The guide was very interactive, and even let me guide the boat for a bit. Lots of fun. Great company. Great river trip for beginners to intermediate interests. Hope to get back and try out the... More

Better than we imagined. Train up and bus back. We road in the San Juan car. It had a narrator in period cloths. She was great. Right side up on train and left side back on bus fantastic view. Worth every penny.

We were so glad we choose Mild to Wild tours to do before our train ride from Silverton to Durango. The scenery was beautiful and our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We did the jeep trail tour and would highly recommend it.

Wonderful tour from Durango to Silverton with an extremely pleasant and knowledgable driver, followed by a fantastic open jeep tour up rugged mountain roads to the top of Rocky Pass at 12,500 feet above sea level. Expansive scenery, beautiful fall color from the aspens, interesting history from our guide about the now long gone mining in the area, and all... More

Had a great day, with great water and guide was very engaging. Experience was a bit pricey, but worth it I guess. The staff clearly know how to work the tip talk at the end of the trip :) Thats ok, I would too! P.S. Before the River sports were stopped due to contamination. Yikes!!!
