The driver was very very nice, great job driving and making everyone feel comfortable. Of course the area was beautiful. I wish I'd done a little more research, as we wanted a true jeep tour of some more remote passes, preferably Imogene and Yankee Boy. Instead they told us they were going to Lake Cuomo and it was the only... More

We appreciate the honest feedback on your tour. Please know that we are one of the few companies that actually have Jeeps in our tour fleet...both being custom built, stretched Jeep Wranglers. However, we also have "tour" trucks with an elevated, open-air tour chassis. These vehicles ride a little smoother and can accommodate more guests during the busiest part of... More

This is the sixth year we have gone on adventures with Switzerland of America. They are simply the best jeep-tour company in not just Ouray, but all of Colorado. Each year we always have Chad and Bob as two of the drivers. These guys are more than just excellent drivers, they have become our friends. We use three trucks for... More

I'm not usually the type to take jeep trips, but I will certainly go again when I visit Ouray. Our jeep driver, Bob, was so nice, and knowledgeable, too! Not silly, like some guides can be. He really knew his history and biology! I highly recommend this jeep company. I have used them twice now, and have never been disappointed.... More

Switzerland of America offers tours of alpine regions around Ouray, CO. The all day tour begins at 8am and ends at 5pm. Depending where you want to go, the skilled and knowledgeable drivers describe the scenery and the history of the area while you travel. The open seating structure on the back of 4 wheel drive pick-ups easily climb and... More

This was wonderful for us! We were able to take photos and ask questions to get local information. We saw many animals and amazing views!

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
