We were greeted by a very friendly staff when checking on our Jeep rental the evening before pickup. Everything was in order. However, when we arrived the next morning, Brandi told us she had some bad news. The driver of the Jeep we were supposed to rent allowed the Jeep to crash down on a rock breaking the track bar....

We took the black bear/Imogene tour, but black bear was still closed into Telluride, so the itinerary was altered. It was still a fun, although long, tour. We were gone almost 10 hours. We had a large tour truck that sat 8 people, I was surprised the tour driver could navigate those narrow roads but he did. Driver was very... More

In each of the last three years, while vacationing in Ouray, we have taken Switzerland of America jeep tours. Most recently we were visiting with a group of 15 people - 9 of whom were young children all in car seats. Switzerland of America Jeep tours did an awesome job accommodating our large group. The kids - ages 7 and... More

Absolutely the Best JEEP-TASTIC Tour in Ouray, CO. The Switzerland of America Jeep Co. went literally above and beyond as Shawn our tour guide and driver took us to an area known as Yankee Boy Basin which my friends and I'll remember for the rest of our lives as one of the best days ever...absolutely JEEP-TASTIC! :-)

We took a half day tour to Imogene pass. The guide did a good job of pointing out the local points of interest and giving their history. I was also glad that he was driving, and dealing with some of the more novice drivers. There were several spots that were one way, and we had to back up a few... More

2nd year in a row w/SOA Tours. Had Chad this year for Corkscrew and Hurricane Passes. The Dodge Durango can handle ANY switchback or climb. The drive up is incredible.... views, bumps and lots of fun! This particular tour has plenty of climbs, bumps, and thrills. The lake view from Hurricane is too gorgeous. Our cameras couldn't do it justice...pristine... More

My husband and I went with Don of Switzerland of America through Corkscrew and Hurricane and California Pass this week. He was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. We had originally wanted to do Imogene, but it was not yet open. Corkscrew was a great alternative. Wildflowers were starting and made the lower areas of corkscrew very beautiful.... More

The tour to Yankee Boy Basin was a lot of fun. Ken pointed out sites, history and things of interest which made it all the more interesting. We went part way to Imogene Pass although that tour was not available yet due to the snow still on the pass. That made the tour much more fun however. There were only... More

Scenic and thrilling ride up to Yankee Boy Basin!! Our guide, Perry, knew more about this area than I could have imagined. Great stories all the way up and down, and even a couple of added on turnouts as we had more time than he thought! Even a wedding going on at the "Coors" waterfall. Will do the full day... More
