We were wonderfully taken care of and the trip itself was idyllic. First, the river: we ttravelled about 23 mile over the two days with a very calm... More

We had so much fun on our first rafting trip. We were a little nervous at first but Mild to Wild are so professional with a splash of fun. We can't wait to come back!

We took the trails and rails tour with Mild to Wild and our tour guide Doug was great. He made the bus ride to Silverton go fast and gave us lots of good facts and tips. We took the jeep trail ride with him as well and he took us to some great views in secluded locations. When one of... More

I booked the mild Lower Animas Half day rafting trip as my kids had never done whitewater rafting before and were feeling timid. They are aged 13, 11 and 7. This was a great trip and the one they wanted to repeat the most out of a week of excursions. The guides and people who work with Mild to Wild... More

Mesa Verde is a place that I had always wanted to visit. Without a reservation from official National Park Service due to availability, I managed to book myself with Mild to Wild Rafting and Jeep Trail Tours, only the day before. For the amount that I spent, it was really nothing compared to the experience and knowledge that I gained... More

My husband and I, both in our 50s, had never been rafting until today. We went on the 1/2 day Lower Animas trip with Don as our river guide. I had such a blast! What a great guide in every way! He taught us how to work as a team and made it fun. Very light hearted but very interesting... More

Just returned from a tour of Mesa Verde. Amazing, memorable & wow. Jay was our guide - he is the best! Nice guy with fantastic knowledge. We visited a number of ancient ruins finishing with Cliff Palace. I was finding the altitude difficult, he kept checking as to how I was doing. I have a vertigo problem & was not... More

We all had a great time. Ruby made the whole experience even better with information and history of the Animas river. He made us all laugh with jokes and stories. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Even our 5 year old grandson loved it. He was very inquisitive and Ruby was very patient and made it fun for him. Our other... More

Decided to pair one leg of the Durango-Silverton train with a ghost town jeep tour from Mild to Wild and it was a great decision. The bus arrived promptly at 8:00 in the train's parking lot and from there we enjoyed the informative and humorus stylings of our guide Omar. I learned more about Colorado's geology, flora and fauna on... More
