Wonderful Jeep Tour with Tom
Debbie_S, Aug 2021
Tom was a great guide. Gave us lots of information about the area. He was very caring in making sure I was comfortable. I am amputee he made sure when we would stop I could get out and see the beautiful scenery. Great tour!
*in a positive tone* STEVE.

3 generations of women on an off road adventure! Steve, our tour guide, was super knowledgeable regarding geography, geology and indigenous history. Also not afraid to look stuff up, he stopped to bust out his wildflower reference guide to identify the purple wildflower, Horsemint, of which the horse is not fond. A skilled driver, the jeep didn't turn over!
Well worth it!!!
FRANK_L, Jul 2021
Our driver (sorry, can’t remember his name) and tour guide was fun and very knowledgeable. He has great driving skills and knows the area well. We learned a lot of interesting things about the area and it’s history.

Jeep tour was super fun. Snow didn’t permit the 4x4 part which was a bummer. Brandon our tour guide was great. Would recommend doing this for sure unless you absolutely hate heights😁 ( skyline drive)

It was an outstanding tour! The guide, Mel, is full of geographic, biological, historical stories and information. We were moving on to Colorado Springs that day and he gave us a wonderful restaurant recommendation. Thanks Mel!
Response from Host, Apr 2019
Thank you so much for your lovely review of your jeep tour and your guide, Mel. Isn't he the best? One of our most experienced guides and the customers always love his tours. Please come back and see us again soon!
Amazing views.
Dale_D, Jul 2018
Rick was our guide/driver. He was very knowledgeable about the local history from the Jurassic period forward. He was very skillful in negotiating switchbacks and getting us to places far off of the beaten track. Amazing views from the top of ridges and great narration concerning geology, dinosaurs and Ute Indian history. A great way to spend the afternoon.
