Our guide Joe was super friendly, fun, and explained everything thoroughly. She's one of the best people ever! The rafting ride itself was fun, and the views were pretty! Be prepared for cold water, but it's totally worth it!

Great guides with lots of enthusiasm. We were in small groups so it was tight knit. One overboard, so we had an unexpected but exciting time pulling them back in. Pay attention to the safety talk at the start!

Durango Rivertrippers proved to be excellent in activities and communication! Tom put up with my husband's crazy jokes on our 4x4 jeep tour, and Diego flawlessly guided us down the rapids! We would not hesitate to use this company again.
