This was our children's first rafting ride (they are 10 and 8). Our guide ("Ice Pick") was great and made their first experience very memorable. We did the 1/2 lower animas ride, which was very good for our young children, and the all day ghost town jeep tour and train ride. The jeep tour was great and was very informative.

We booked a rafting trip for half day on the lower animas river after I won a drawing on mild to wild Facebook page. (That helped pay for some of our trip) It was easy to book. The staff was great, sent all the information to us ahead of time so we were prepared. Our Guide Tony was awesome, very... More

We took the 2 hour Animas rafting trip and it was great. Tour guide was very personable and skilled and everything ran like clockwork. The surfing was amazing. A must do if you are in Durango.

The Mild 2 Wild staff was super friendly and accommodating as we scheduled a tubing trip down the Animas River for our class reunion in Durango. We had a lot of fun on the river and the shuttle driver estimated our pickup time perfectly. Thanks Mild 2 Wild!

This was a smooth operation from start to finish! We had a great tour guide (Andrew) who was a very good conversationalist and a local to the area. He was happy to talk about other local events, activities and restaurants while we were on the raft. We took the Lower Animas River rafting trip as we had children with us... More

We spent this morning on a half day jeep tour of the La Plata Canyon. Our tour guide was knowledgable on the area. He took us to some of the most beautiful sights we have ever seen. It was great seeing areas that we had no way of getting to on our own. Yes, it was bumpy, but we were... More

Our family decided to take a very spontaneous vacation. We are from San Diego and wanted to take a road trip which included river rafting. It was Elise, from Mild to Wild, who took the time to map out a trip through Arizona to Durango for us. With only 8 days for this RV vacation and four children, her recommendations... More

If you have any chronic spinal issues this trip is NOT FOR YOU. It is three hours of torture in the back of an open truck on a road pocked with foot-deep ruts and rocks the size of soccer balls. There are no handholds and the seat belts do not remain tight. The trip to the entrace to La Plata... More

Oh my! We are so sorry you did not enjoy our jeep trail tour trip on La Plata Canyon. We do consider this trip to be "mild" in adventure because we are not climbing up rocks and we are on a dirt road. As the economy has suffered, the county's budget has diminished for maintaining the roads. It is rough... More
