We took the jeep tour and the 4 hour rafting trip with this company. Both trips were incredible.Dylan was our rafting guide. He was fun, entertaining, and guided us effortlessly through the rocks. He made sure we all had a great time. Matt was our guide on the jeep tour. He was very knowledgeable of the area and the trails. It was a chilly morning and he had blankets to keep us warm. The views were amazing and we learned so much! Both guides were professional and you could tell they enjoy what they do. I highly recommend both trips and Mountain Waters!

Our family of 5 did the 2 hour excursion with Rolf as our rafting guide. Rolf provided terrific paddling instruction and safe navigation. Not one of us fell out of the raft! The views were beautiful, the water was perfect for our level of experience. Rolf's personality and calm demeanor were a plus for having a great experience with your kids on the river!

Awesome! as you probably know Rolf is a rookie guide this year and we love to hear he is doing so well. It is great to hear that all the Mountain Waters training and learning pays off. This is how we distinguish ourselves from the rest. Thank You!

Booked a package Rail and Raft Adventure thru the Durango/Silverton Railway. Mountain Waters shuttle picked us up at Silverton giving a guided tour as we returned on the scenic highway. Excellent hospitality and assistance by the shuttle driver, staff, and guides. Kudos to Doug Pence and our raft guide Byron. Would like to book a longer, more challenging raft adventure in a future trip. Awesome!

Thank you, we are proud to be the Official Provider of the Raft and Rail Package for the Historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. And come back for a more challenging raft adventure, we always have one, right now it is the Rockwood Gorge on the Upper Animas or Inflatable Kayaks on the Lower Animas.

The river was down so there wasn't a lot of excitement on the trip, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. Our guide, Bama, was great and really knew the river. I would recommend him to anybody thinking about rafting with this company.

The river is at it's normal July flows which means it is DUCKY season! Choose the inflatable kayak option for anyone 12 and up that wants more of a challenge on the family friendly Animas River through Durango. If some of your group wants to raft, others can kayak, y'all go together. Thanks for the review Jason.
