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

The staff really took the time to get to know our interests and abilities and gave us a great recommendation. We had a great time and appreciated their help as well as the quality of the jeeps. You do have to fill up the tank and clean the jeep before you return it, but I guess that helps keep people... More

Didn't know about TripAdvisor until our tour driver mentioned it, I should have put in a review years ago. This year is the 12th in a row that I've gone riding with the SOA people; a full day over Imogene/Ophir and a half day on Corkscrew for this year. Add those together with my prior trips under the current owners... More

This is the second year in a row I've used SOA. Both times I rented 2 Door Wrangler. 2013 my Wife and I did Imogene Pass (Tomboy is interesting) and then Ophir Pass. This Year we took the advice of Brandy (SOA) and did the Alpine Loop and a few other roads she recommended we were very pleased with SOA... More

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
