I will be in Durango mid July with my husband and 2 sons ( 27 and 23...23YO has Down Syndrome but very active ). The day we arrive, we want to do the early afternoon 4hour rafting trip and I have been researching the different companies. While it looks like most of them have good/great reviews and similar pricing, I was wondering if the locals had a preference. I have looked at 7 different companies and some offer a premium boat which is supposed to be lower in the water for a better ride.... In July, would the lower water flow make this a good suggestion? Also, 4 Corners Whitewater offers a 4-1 guide ratio and Flexible Flyers offers a 15% discount for booking by April 1st with a full refund if cancelled before 48 hours, where others charge a 10% fee to cancel.
SO, should I look at them all as basically equal and choose by boat option, guide ratio or pricing?
I appreciate any and all advice, opinions and help! THANKS!
