We have taken jeep tours before but nothing to compare to the experience offered by the Imogene Pass tour. When we ran out of road we wondered where we were going next. Our... read more

We have taken jeep tours before but nothing to compare to the experience offered by the Imogene Pass tour. When we ran out of road we wondered where we were going next. Our questions were answered when our tour guide drove the jeep right up on the rocks and kept on going until we were at the top. What an... More

We exclusively use Switzerland of America Jeep Tours during our trips to Ouray. We recently visited Ouray during the peak of fall foliage. The colors were breathtaking. We took 3 jeep tours during our stay. We did the Alpine Loop with Chad as our guide, Fall Splendor Tour with Leo and our last adventure was Black Bear with Perry. All... More

SOA opened in 1962. The attached photo was taken at the Black Bear Road trailhead in 1968, before they gave up replacing the sign due to repeated theft. That's me at the lower left. Note the spare tire cover on the Jeep. It speaks volumes that a company based on tourism can remain in business for 53 years. Whether renting... More

We usually like to "go it" alone, but we decided to do this trail as a tour because of the elevation and we are glad we did! Our guide was Joel, who was very knowledgeable and an excellent driver. This is a crazy & busy road and though my husband and I have driven some tough off road trails, we... More

Did a 3 hour tour to Yankee Boy Basin. Breathtaking! The guide (Chad) was great. Full of history about the area, very safety conscious, fun. Beautiful scenery in the fall. Must bring a jacket. Not sure why I waited so long to go on a jeep tour. Can't wait to go again.

I was fortunate to be able to do two jeep tours in August with SOA. I love this company! They're reliable, dependable, very safety conscious and just plain fun! I did Black Bear Pass and Bob was the driver. Extremely excellent! The first time I did Black Bear I wasn't prepared for the "stairs" and that immediate sharp turn to... More

You are in great hands with Ms. Pam, she will get you lined out and ready to enjoy an eventful trip. Our driver and guide was Leo. He was very informative and gentle with his passengers. He was attentive to every need of his guests. The "Half" day trip to "Yankee Boy Basin" was enjoyable and fun. We brought our... More

We rented a 4 door standard Rubicon for the day and everything about the process was smooth and hassle free. I had sent in my drivers license and insurance info the week before so when we showed up at 8 to pick up our jeep, we did a quick walk around to check for damage and were on our way.... More
