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

We had a fabulous time. Our guide, Chad, was knowledgeable about everything in the area and really took time to show us everything on the Black Bear Tour. Our children loved him and he had a great sense of humor. We couldn't have been more pleased with all the staff. The money for the value was spot on. We highly... More

We rented a Jeep through Switzerland of America Tours. We had the 4 door standard version to fit our family of five. The vehicle was in good condition and SoA provided good advice on which trail to choose. We went to Yankee Boy Basin and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also booked our horse riding through SoA but cannot recommend that... More

We arrived in Ouray around 6PM the evening before our rental. SOAT allows you to check out your jeep the day before between 6PM and 7PM. Which is awesome because that way you can maximize your rental the day of. I highly recommend that you send them via email all your insurance and payment because when we arrived, all paperwork...

From my booking appointment over the phone, to my experience at the desk, to the jeep ride itself, we had an overall excellent experience with SOA. When booking our July trip months ago, the woman on the phone made sure to tell us about their early booking discount that we were able to take advantage of. Our driver picked us... More

Riding with the Switzerland of America 4x4 tours is addictive. I don't remember how I found them in my first internet search of info about the Black Bear Pass, but I'm glad I did. This year was a half day up the Corkscrew road like last year, but shorter this time due to snow blockage beyond the summit - a... More

Amazing, exhilarating. We went all the way to the top 13,000 feet. Even in sleet and then blue sky sunshine, we all had a wonderful time. Our driver, Jim Barr, was excellent and we all had confidence in his ability...even over the boulders and skirting the edges! All staff was courteous and patient. We had 51 people on this excursion... More

Great organization and great rentals. Have driven my own highly modified Wrangler 1500 miles to Ouray for several years. Fun but too difficult and expensive. These people provided the solution. Rent a 2015 Jeep Rubicon. I did for 3 days. Had only 700 miles on it. Took the tough trails, Imogene through rivers and corridors of 12' snow) and Engineer... More
