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

Always have a great experience with this group. They are always accommodating. They take into consideration all of your circumstances. They were so kind to my little 2 year old.

Four young woman friends, 50's or so😉, gathered mostly from the NorthEast and New England to tour some of Colorado's grandier. Nothing we had seen compared to this jeep tour! Joel was our guide, and what a guide👍 We learned of the history of Ouray, the chief, the mining, the land forms, flowers coming and going, and so much more.... More

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,...
