This was our third tour with this company, and as usual, it was WONDERFUL! Our guide, Joel, kept a lively pace, packing so many interesting details into our experience. It was FUN, SAFE, and INFORMATIVE. A side note: bring more water than you think you will need. Wear sunscreen and dress in layers. Bring snacks. Wear a hat! Thanks again... More

From the start to the finish our experience with Switzerland of America Tours was outstanding. Their staff were extremely helpful both before and after our rental experience. We did not want to do any extreme trips so they guided us toward reasonable destinations that provided stunning views and experiences. If you are considering a tour or, in my opinion better,...

They have new model jeeps for rent at reasonable prices. If you're hesitant about whether you should rent a jeep or take a tour, rent! You can do this yourself and you'll be glad you did.

We did the Yankee Boy Basin tour and it was just breathtaking. We were there just a week or so after they had a foot or so of snow so didn't get much greenery but that didn't make a difference. The tour was just beautiful and our guide was very knowledgeable. We had a great time and will definitely do... More

We enjoyed our half day trip up the canyon and into the mountains on our 4x4 tour. Our guide was outstanding! He told us about the history of the area and the topography and plants as we drove up and back. He was very patient with all the guests and answered every question. The price for the tour was reasonable... More

Our family (mom, dad and two teenage sons) really enjoyed our trip up to Imogene Pass. We have a Jeep Wrangler and I would have been comfortable renting one to drive to the pass myself but its much more relaxing letting someone else do the driving. In addition the information and history from our guide is better than getting it... More

We did this in July 2013 and hugely enjoyed the ride up to the top of Imogene Pass. Rode in one of their Dodge pickups with the seats in back. Both drivers had very good history and stories. It was good to hear different takes on local history, and to hear about how stuck up some of the famous Hollywood... More

We reserved a half-day tour in late September when the fall color was supposed to be at it's peak. Our reservation was for a fall color tour that they do only during the time when the Aspens are in full color. The day before our tour, the company called to ask if we could adjust our starting time to an... More

This was by far the highlight of our trip!! We had an amazing time on the jeep tour and our tour guide was so informative! It was wonderful getting up into the canyons and seeing everything up close. Breathtaking. We asked around to about 5 different locals and they all suggested this company. One guy at the visitor center even... More

My nephew gave my friend and I a jeep tour to the top of Mt. Imogene when we visited in 2013. Along with several others our trip was full of laughter, great history from our driver/guide and a fantastic time. The beauty of the Colorado Mountains is incredible and inspiring. I wish I could remember our guide's name as he... More
