On Saturday, we took a Mesa Verde private tour with Denise. Her knowledge and enthusiasm regarding all aspects of landscape and the culture was highly informative. Denise was pleasant, patient and fun to be around. We had a great time on the insiders personal tour and would recommend that that this is the only way to see Mesa Verde.

Overall, this was a nice outing into an area that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. My only negative was that they had our tour scheduled for the wrong day, but I called and they fixed it - no problem. Kelly was out there quickly and had us on the road, so no harm done. It's past their normal season, so... More

We took the train from Silverton to Durango, so we didn't have a car but wanted to go to Mesa Verde. We met Denise our driver and guide and one other couple at the Rivertrippers kiosk in downtown. Denise was a National Park guide for many years and has a degree in Anthropology and a life time of experience to... More

I had a great time on the Jeep tour up the La Plata Mountains to the Kennebec Notch. My guide Tom was full of good information and made me laugh several times. The views were amazing and the jeep was clean and comfortable. Will be back next year to do some river rafting!

Great experience using this company to rent a jeep for a day. Booking was easy, the guy who helped us gave us some really helpful advice and a map. Exploring the back roads was a definite highlight of our Durango trip. The scenery on our day of exploring was breathtaking. Will use this company again,

I was on the same trip with Brian and it was wonderful. Our guide was very patient and professional . Brian was NEVER in an unsafe situation . He got stuck in the shallow part of the river after admitting to me that he had not kayaked in 30 years. The raft guide had to hike upstream and jumped into... More

Thank you so much for your review and telling your side of the on water experience. It was clear he was frustrated with trying kayaking. If it was "un-safe" then why did he let his wife continue downstream? We hope to see you adventuring with us again soon and look forward to seeing you. The pictures of everyone going down... More

With only one guide it made this trip very dangerous. The company was obviously being cheap at the cost of quality and safety. Very poorly done.

Brian, After talking with you and our guides to get the full picture I am sorry to hear about your experience. Kayaking can be very stressful and takes time to learn. We had a total of 6 adults on the water per our 1 guide who has years of experience. Your guide is a very calm person who got very... More

We had a terrible experience with Outlaw the morning of our jeep tour. They passed our number to RiverTrippers who called in a guide to take us on a private tour.

Loved every part of our trip with Durango Rivertrippers. Our river guide, Koby, was fun, funny and knowledgeable about the sights we were passing. It was cooler than we expected when we arrived, so we wanted to buy some splash pants. I was amazed that they cost only $5: feel like Durango Rivertrippers was really trying to be helpful, and...
