“Dan's the MAN!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Being an experienced rafter, and having used Mild to Wild before, I knew they would do a great job for the rest of the family who were newbies to white water rafting. We brought along my two nieces (ages 8 and 11) for the trip, and they had a blast. Dan was our guide, and was AWESOME! Very friendly and talkative. He made sure to include the girls and encourage them. At the final swimming hole, he swam with them, got them in the water - and they had a great time. We did the half day Animas with snack provided (we brought our own lunch and drinks as well). When we stopped, we unpacked our lunch and had plenty of time to eat. For first timers and inexperienced rafters it's a great trip. It's even a great trip for those of us with experience. From the girls in the store to the rest of the guides, each employee we encountered was friendly and helpful. Great outfit to use! You won't be disappointed.

Thank you Tam! We are so happy you enjoyed your experience with Mild to Wild and loved having you as a guest! The half day Lower Animas is one of our favorite trips and packing a lunch is a great idea! Thanks for giving us such a positive review, we truly appreciate you taking the time to comment about our business. Until you're back from Australia for another rafting adventure, have a wonderful summer, er winter! Cheers!

“It's not just about the river the Guides make the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

If you are looking for a fantastic rafting trip down the Animas river you can pick from many guide services but if you want the best guides stroll on down to Mild to Wild and ask for Libby. She treated me and my daughters to a great morning with fun facts, July 4th jokes and a non-stop audible adventure. You can not go wrong.

“Happy Birthday to me!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

It was my 41st B-day and I I had never been rafting. I looked around on the net for a reasonably priced short river trip on the Animas river in Durango. I found Mild to Wild. I paid for me and my boyfriend for under $100 for 2 hours.

Our guide was Carlos and he was great! Very knowledgeable and professional! We had a wonderful time and got wet!

“Great Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

This was our first time rafting and we had a fabulous time on the lower Animas! Our guide ZB was amazing!!! Our four kids had a blast and would have gone again the next day had we not had to leave for home. The rapids were great and the scenery was beautiful…Thanks Mild to Wild and ZB for a great adventure!

Fantastic Erin! Well, we'll definitely have to have you back for more rafting adventures! Next time you talk to one of our trip consultants, ask them about the San Miguel, depending on the age of your children, it could be a wonderful full day adventure for your family! Until then, have an amazing summer!

“Great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Our family had a blast rafting with Mild to Wild on our rafting tour! Our guide, Phil, was very knowledgeable, sharing fun and interesting facts and tidbits about rafting and the Animas River. Making our reservation was easy and the price was great. We would definitely do this again and recommend to our other friends and family! Thanks for a great time, Mild to Wild!
