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.

Rick was a great tour guide. He is one of the most interesting gentleman I have ever met. He had a lot of... More

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 have used San Juan for many years, and cannot recommend them highly enough. They are kind and courteous and very accommodating. Our guide picked up our large group at our house and he knew when to tell stories and when to hustle. We saw everything on our list, we were never hurried and we felt very comfortable and safe...

This tour was spectacular. Kent(our tour guide), was very informative and added a touch of humor which really made the jeep ride so fun. We saw great mountain views and many waterfalls. The jeep tour took us to the Yankee Boy basin and was a half day trip. We are definitely coming back and will go on another trip with... More

This jeep tour was so much more than we thought it would be. Not only did we 4-wheel up a mountain, we got history information along the way as well as interesting stories from the driver. Once we were at the top (we did Yankee Boy Basin) we had it all to ourselves (the group did). We were given a... More
