We had Jay as our guide for the Mesa Verde all day tour. His energy, spirit and extensive knowledge were excellent. As he explained the areas we visited, other tourists gathered around to listen and ask questions. We were proud to share. We highly recommend Mild to Wild and especially Jay.

We took a family rafting trip down the Lower Animas at the end of July and had an overall disappointing experience. Rafting during the late summer means low water levels, so instead of big rapids, you have to be ready to create your own fun. We were in a raft with a guide who was worn out from long hours... More

We are so sorry you were disappointed in the safety precautions we needed to enforce on our trip. Back flipping out of the boat into very shallow water is dangerous and not following the guides directions endangers others as well. We love fun and adventure (that is why we do what we do), but above all, safety of our guests... More

We were in Durango Colorado and wanted to take a rafting trip. A few of the companies were closed for the season but we finally found Mild to Wild and they were still taking people out on the river. The staff there, Emma and Don in particular were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and we felt very safe with our... More

We took this trip over Labor Day weekend with a total of 5 families - all with kids. Our guides were AMAZING! Keaton, Don, Nickel and Miles were great at not only entertaining us with stories, but they were incredibly patient with the kids - enduring "first aid" events, water gun fights, and plenty of "When will the food be...

My boyfriend and I did the half day Lower Animas trip with our guide, Grace and we had so much fun. I've rafted before, but it was his first time. The water level wasn't very high because it was late summer/early fall but it rained a couple days earlier so the river level was up enough for a class iii... More

We took the economy rafting trip and had a great time. The staff was friendly and funny. The trip was very enjoyable with just the right amount of splash and dash for those of us who had never done this before!

Nickel was our River Guide and he did a great job. He came and introduced himself while we were waiting for our trip. He was very polite and knew what he was doing.
