My family of four traveled down the river at the perfect speed! The water was a little cold since it was the end of May! Our river guide was awesome! I highly recommend Durango Rivertrippers!

Susan, May is awesome rafting! Can we say high water....! The end of May and early June are high water conditions, and you found out. If you can bare the cold the river is a great ride. Cheers, David More

We went at the wrong time of year I guess! Very low water and we spent most of the time on the rocks!! They should give you more info!! Not at all what we expected! A poor price for the experience., I will say our Guide Jermey was awesome!!!

We did the morning trip on the Animas River. We had a blast. The water levels were too high for some sections a week earlier, but we were fortunate enough that we did not have to portage around the biggest rapids. The water is quite cold in the early summer.

We took the Jeep Tour in August of 2016. 1) Excellent customer service from the get-go; 2) Reasonably priced for a half-day trip: 3) personable driver and guide; 4) beautiful scenery. We don't get there often, but Durango is one of my favorite places, and we highly recommend Durango Adventure Trippers.
