Great company, but it is the "big one" in town and the prices reflect that. You can get the same fun, wet experience with other companies for much less money. Just as much fun and just as safe so I recommend shopping around to the other businesses.

Thank you Mild to Wild for the great informational, educational and entertaining tour of Mesa Verde National Park. We did not think that could be beat. Then, we went on your rafting trip through Durango. That was equally a highlight. Thank you am thank you to our guides Rob and Drew.

We had the most excellent good fortune to have Marty Dowling as our guide as we explored Mesa Verde. He was not only most knowledgeable, he was patient and kind and unfailingly respectful of our needs and our wishes. Seeing Mesa Verde was on our "bucket list and Marty made the experience everything we had hoped for. We even saw... More

My family and I loved our time in Durango last June and Mild to Wild made it even better. We enjoyed the rivers and trails package, where we loved rafting the Animas and were blown away by the rocky ridgelines of the beautiful San Juan Mountains. Mild to Wild was professional, knowledgeable and really fun with our group. We're excited... More

I had a wonderful time with the Mild to Wild Mesa Verde Tour. Our guide, Rob, was very informative, not just about the history of Mesa Verde and the surrounding areas, but also the geology of the area. I visited Mesa Verde a few years ago. But with a tour guide, it made the visit much more enriching. Thank you,... More

Alex and his crew are absolutely first rate. Our entire experience was fantastic from the booking process until we returned to our car after the trip. We did a 3 day 2 night float in Moab and everything was perfect. The guides made great meals, were great with the kids (ages 2 - 8) and were more then competent in... More

This is a great thing to do while visiting Durango. They offer a lot of different packages, from beginning to expert. Floating the Animas River through town is wonderful for seeing Durango from a different angle. It's always a hit with out of town visitors and lots of fun for us locals also. Beautiful scenery and clear, cold water. What... More

Apparently due to the cold weather, we did not venture out of the jeep. It was more of a scenic tour than anything. Our guides, (Rob, Sean and Isabelle) were fountains of information and I really appreciated Sean's passion for the area. Personally, I do not think it was worth the money ($350 for 2, including train tickets back). When... More

We are sorry you were disappointed in the mildness of jeep trail tour. We do not offer a wild option for our jeep trail tours. Our company name "Mild to Wild" refers to the variety of adventure levels we offer in our outdoor adventures, but is not specific to each different venue - in a raft, inflatable kayak, jeep trail...

On October 11th we took a "jeep" tour out of Silverton (the guide picked us up in Durango). We were a little nervous as it snowed in Silverton and the canyons the day before. We were pleasantly surprised! The snow made everything look beautiful. There was no wind, so the trees were covered. We went places no one had been... More

My husband and I made arrangements to go rafting on a beautiful Saturday morning. This was our first experience so we were a little apprehensive. We met our guide Zac and Jesse who would drive us to the unloading spot and take some fun pics of us while we went down the Animas River. The guys were great especially Zac... More
