Renting a Wrangler here was easy and pleasant from start to finish.

They keep their Jeeps clean, trail-ready and in great shape. You're not getting any beaters here; they are all recent model years with good maintenance. At rental time they give you a map book of area trails -- such an awesome touch! We did a 2-day rental and our Wrangler was awesome! It had auxiliary lights including a light bar in the front and back which were great for getting out of town at night to do stargazing. The slight lift gave us ample clearance without making our pavement princess moments a pain. Our trip got cut a little short so we didn't have time to do as much trail driving as we would have liked, but the shocks and tires made every moment pleasant. The Jeep handled the climbs, altitude, descents, and sharp rocks with ease. The staff here is friendly, amazing and went way above and beyond for us when we needed a ride to the airport. My husband and I would have given them 5 stars before that, but they deserve MORE than 5 stars for being so nice!

What a wonderful experience!

We rented a jeep for a day to do some exploring. The rental process was some and quick. The vehicle was is great condition. We drove some of the alpine loop in Siverton Colorado. The return was just as nice. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Even before we left, he gave us some great advice on where to go and what not to do. We would definitely do this again with Rivertrippers.

Had a blast with Durango Rivertrippers on our white water rafting trip.

The crew were nice, interactive, and professional. Experience was great from booking, getting gear, the bus ride, through the river trip. Our guide was funny and shared a lot of historical information along the trip which was awesome! Well worth the money for a good family experience. Our kids were 5 & 13 and both thoroughly enjoyed it!

It is very family oriented and a blast!

This was the first time we had our 6 year old son out on the river and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. Brian C was so much fun. He made our 6 year old have the best time of his life. He was so sad when the trip was over. He was such a cool guide and made the trip awesome. I would 10 out of 10 recommend this company.

Thank you to Durango Rivertrippers!

We took a private tour of Mesa Verde with (Greg I think that is his name)as our guide and we had a fabulous day. He was very informative about all aspects of the park both geologic and historic/anthropological. He was polite and always accommodating to us as my husband has a disability. He was always patient and considerate. The park itself is amazing! We learned so much and were awed by such grandeur. We can’t say enough kind things about our guide and how much we enjoyed our day.
