Very professional. The ride was thrilling to the top of Red Mountain but we felt very safe with the driver we had. Enjoyed box lunches along the ride. This was the second time we have used this company and enjoyed the ride just as much. Driver was very informative and took time to talk to all of us.

We were so lucky to have a crip, cool, clear morning to take our trip to Imogene Pass. But it sure does get cold at those higher elevations. What a magnigicant way to view so many differnt perspectives of the Western Slope.

This was the absolute highlight of our trip to Colorado. We took the Corkscrew Pass tour and it is aptly named. Our driver was both courteous and extremely knowledgeable in addition to being an excellent driver. The scenery is spectacular and the trip exhilarating. It was worth every penny we spent. Be sure you heed the cautions about bringing along... More

As a kid in Delta high school, I went through the 4 wheel back country between Ouray, Lake City, and Silverton at least 8 or 9 times and loved the experience. Now 30+ years later I wanted my family to enjoy it as well. After reviewing all of the applicable internet comments, and looking at the various Jeep Tour websites,... More

We are sorry that our perspective and yours are very different, as our staff worked diligently to accommodate your very specific requests. We would never promise to deliver a hard-topped vehicle as we simply do NOT have fully enclosed vehicles. Our tours are open-topped so that our guests may enjoy the mountain scenery. The tour vehicles will only be 'covered'... More

My wife suggested we give the hiking a rest on the last day of a two week trip to SE UT and SW CO and take a backcountry tour up into the mountains. I am so glad I agreed. We went up to Yankee Boy basin with three others on the back of the 4x4. Our tour guide (forgot his... More

Our experience with this company was very positive. The guide was great with our teenage kids, even stopping along the way to let them "mine" some silver. The views were breathtaking, and our guide was very knowledgeable about what we were seeing. I would definitely recommend this company for a jeep tour. We will return again and again.

As my husband likes to put it, I paid someone $ 172, they gave me the keys to a new 4X4 Jeep and said Go have fun!! That is exactly what happened. Switzerland of America is wonderful, easy to work with and has new, clean, user friendly Jeeps that are made for these mountains...to have fun in. Our reservation was... More

Huge props to Switzerland of America and to our driver, Joel! Our four hour tour was incredible . . . Joel skillfully and safely negotiated 20% grades, big boulders, steep drop-offs to either side of the jeep, and rocks, pebbles, and dirt aplenty. I ride a Harley and consider myself an exceptional driver, but I would not have possessed the... More

Today my husband and I went on the Imogene Pass tour with Bob and had a really great time. We were able to get tons of beautiful pictures. I was really surprised at how far up we were and of all the mountain views. Another treat was the amount of flowers there were that high up. We've just finished going... More

Our jeep tour with Switzerland of America Tours was by far the highlight of our trip. We did the Black Bear tour and it was spectacular! Amazing views, beautiful wildflowers, gorgeous waterfalls, lots of wildlife...the entire day did not disappoint in any way. Our driver/tourguide, Perry, was awesome! We've done a number of jeep tours before and he was by... More

Thank you for the suggestion. We will start asking our guests about their favorite places to eat in Telluride. Maybe we can find something new and spectacular. Thanks for riding with us! More
