The tour was fantastic. Even with some areas closed due to COVID we didn't feel like we missed out on anything. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and showed us things that other tourists missed completely. He adapted the tour to allow us to see what we were most interested in and did not rush us at all. We wound up going over time but he didn't mind at all. We got fantastic weather and the crowds weren't too bad although there were a good few visitors who didn't believe in wearing masks. Our own group kept our masks on. If you're going to visit Mesa Verde this tour is definitely the way to do it!

James set up a wonderful private half day tour with Tracy as our guide. Tracy picked us up at our RV park in a van and off we went. Tracy was so knowledgeable and a great guide. My husband is very interested in culture and history and asks a lot of questions and she answered all of them. He was very impressed how well informed Tracy was. The tour supplied excellent snakes a d cold waters. The private tour especially with Corona Virus made the world of difference for us driving around to being driven around with a GREAT guide.

Wow! My 2 sons and I were in Durango, so one of my sons could start college at Fort Lewis College, and we went rafting with Mountain Waters Rafting. The location was a 2 minute drive from the hotel, and everything about the trip was so much more than I expected, even though the water was low. The staff made the trip so enjoyable, and they were so knowledgeable. I would recommend this trip to anybody that has never been in a raft before. You can show up at the session, without any knowledge of rafting, and the staff will take care of you. What a fantastic experience.

Despite it being the last trip of the season due to low water we still had a lot of fun! No complaints about the company or our guide (Dillan) just that the water was low, which was outside their control. They tried to make up for it by letting us play in the what water park a bit which my children loved. I had my 7 and 8 year old with me and it was a great introduction to white water rafting that hopefully they will be excited to do again. We wished we could have gone longer but the water was just too low. So if you are wanting to go, do not until end of August! We would love to come earlier in the season and do it again.

One of the great ironies of whitewater rafting is that the majority of people are on vacation and travelling in July and August when river levels are past their peak. Of course it is still fun despite the low water because our guides are awesome and just being on a river in beautiful Colorado is always worthwhile! It also gives little kids and those who aren't too sure a chance to experience rafting when it is safe and appropriate. Thank you for the great review and good advice!
