“Lower Animas River rafting”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

My husband and I had a fantastic time rafting the lower Animas River with Tom as our guide. As mentioned in a previous review they ran the trip just for us even though we had signed up for a large group rafting tour. We highly recommend getting the picture package. Someone actually stands on the side of the river at the most exciting spot and somehow got these amazing photos which have been impressing all of out friends. Mild to Wild Tours does everything possible to ensure a wonderful experience.

“Great guides, rafts, and lots of fun”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Best time of year for the rapids from the melt and it was great! Since it was the kids first time we went down lower Animas. We look forward to returning for more challenging as the kids become more experienced.

“Lower Animas River, a Raft, a Great Guide, and You!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We were in southwest CO very early in the spring season but wanted to do a raft trip anyway. These folks had barely opened for the season, but, despite the fact that we were the only customers for that day, they accepted our reservation. Our guide Kyle was clearly very experienced and also knowledgeable about the area. We had a great ride, one we'll remember for a long time!

Thanks so much for the review! We love rafting and were so glad you called! Kyle is one of our guides that has been on staff 10+ years. We have quite a few guides that have reached the decade mark! Thanks again.

“Love the experience, but overpriced”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Great company, but it is the "big one" in town and the prices reflect that. You can get the same fun, wet experience with other companies for much less money. Just as much fun and just as safe so I recommend shopping around to the other businesses.

Hi! We are so glad you loved your experience with Mild to Wild and endorse us as a great company! This year, we are excited to be Celebrating 20 Years of Connecting Families & Friends in Whitewater & Adventure. Our goal is to provide the best guest service and the best value. We have year round staff to service our guests, a permanent location with free parking, indoor bathrooms and changing rooms so our guests can change clothes prior and post trip, a store with river goodies and offer a guarantee "If our guest is not absolutely delighted with our guides and equipment, the trip is FREE". Safety is our #1 priority! That makes training a priority. Our trip leaders have an average of 2,000 river miles and our Upper Animas trip leaders average over 5000 river miles. We give our guides financial incentives to achieve higher safety certifications than the basic state requirement. We have an in-house state certified guide training program. We are a family and want our guests to be part of our family too. Thanks for your feedback.

Reviewed April 13, 2014

Thank you Mild to Wild for the great informational, educational and entertaining tour of Mesa Verde National Park. We did not think that could be beat. Then, we went on your rafting trip through Durango. That was equally a highlight. Thank you am thank you to our guides Rob and Drew.
