San Juan jeep tour located in Western Hotel is the BEST. Ask for Greg. Greg was our guide and is very knowledgeable on the history of the mines and the roads. The scenery is spectacular and be sure to take your camera for awesome pictures. The price is well worth the trip.

Went to Yankee Boy Basin in the morning. 1.5 hr. lunch break and returned for Imogene Pass after lunch. Got snow and sheet on top and rain on the way down but still fun. Guide had a lot of information and was always checking to see if everyone was comfortable. I'd do it again tomorrow if I was still in... More

Went to the top of Red Mountain 3 with Keith today - awesome trip! The drive on the million dollar highway was spectacular from the jeep and we stopped to take pictures of the mountain we'd eventually be on top of. San Juan Jeeps has special access to the a private road that was crazy steep at the way top.... More

One of the most amazing back road jeep tours! Our guide, Rick, was awesome - personable and possessing an encyclopedic knowledge of the local history. The vistas were amazing - 14,000' peaks, waterfalls, wild flowers and wildlife - all providing a breathtaking experience. Dress in layers as it can be cool at 10,000+ feet. Thanks Rick!!

One of the most beautiful views I have ever seen at 12,900 ft. Not only was it picturesque, but our guide shared many interesting facts and stories about the history of this mining community. It was well worth the money and time.

We have been to Ouray before and did jeep trips both times with 2 different companies and San Juan was the best. We ended going to Red Mountain 2 which from what we understand is a private road they use only and it was amazing!! Our driver was great, he stopped several times along the way to give us history...

Absolutely the best part of my trip to Ouray! The tour guide was hysterical and the views were to die for! Besides the beautiful waterfalls and mountain views, we saw all sorts of animals. It can be a bit rocky at points so it's not great for those with back problems that might hurt them but other than that, I'd... More

We recently spent the weekend in Ouray & at the recommendation of a good friend who grew up in the area, we signed up for an afternoon Jeep ride thru San Juan Scenic Jeep Tours.
