We used Durango Rivertrippers as guides on a trip to Mesa Verde. The park wasn't completely open when we visited but our guide Denise (archeologist, geologist and former parks employee) was so helpful and informative I can't imagine seeing Mesa Verde any other way. We had a great day and got so much out of the visit that we can't... More

We booked our excursion when we were planning our trip to Durango, CO. Our experience was GREAT! The guides were very knowledgeable and were from Durango. The ONLY warning is that the water temperature is really cold, but worth it! I would do it again!

We are so happy to hear about your Rafting Experience! May and June certainly can be cold water since it was snow the following day, however it makes for great rafting as you found out. If the water is cold the rapids are large. We hope to see you again soon! Cheers, David Moler More

This was an excellent adventure. We are both over 65 and had a most exciting time. The river guide (Jim) was - professional, entertaining, educational and fun. Would do again!

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!!!
