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.

My husband and I booked a full day trip for white water rafting in the beginning of March 2015. Our guide was Anna. She was very friendly. We were the only ones on the trip. Overall, our trip was good. We were hoping for bigger and better rapids. They said that the water level was low which is why they... More

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to make a review. We like your idea on the photos. We are glad you liked our guides, customer service and food. We wish we could control the water level. Unfortunately, mother nature is not listening! More

My friends and I went on a rafting trip in September of 2014 with Mild to Wild Rafting and Jeep Trail Tours and had an absolute blast! The staff was very nice and knowledgeable while still being down to earth and approachable. Our guide, Brendan Grady, took us down class 4 and 5 rapids and gave us very detailed instructions...

Frank was our tour guide and we can't say enough about him. He is a native with a lot of experiences and knowledge to share. Super friendly and engaging. And of course, gorgeous place. Great experience!

I chose this provider due to the great reviews. Customer Service wise they delivered. We got same day reservations and the people working the counter were friendly and professional. Our guide was also very nice. We found out once we were on the river that they were about a week out before closing for the season. It was obvious as... More

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. We would love to share with you a higher water experience. Give us a call and we will make it worth your while.... More

Booked the jeep tour in Silverton (and the Rail package for the trip down). The weather was pouring rain so we did the enclosed Suburban tour - all in all a good way to spend the rainy day. The tour guide was pretty fearless and didn't let the rain stop him one bit. Even hit snow on the mountain above... More

Sooooooo much fun! Everyone got super wet & laughed the whole way. It was a bit scary as I thought I'd fall out- but obviously never did. One of my friends got Oar happy & accidentally knocked another friend's front tooth out- but even that was hilarious!!! Thanks!!!!

We planned this trip for our "birthiversary" or birthday/anniversary trip and we were on the very last tour of the season. Frank was our tour guide and he was AMAZING!!

We were a group of four couples with varying degrees of thrill seeking preferences. Mike read the group and modified the itinerary to appeal to all. From fabulous photo opps to a challenging hike up to see a waterfall. It was an awesome day. His deep knowledge of the area and geology was fascinating. As dog lovers, a highlight for... More
