My friend and I visited at the beginning of October. We were greeted by Mary who was very pleasant and helpful. We took the tour in the open top suburban to clear lake with Arlo. He was an excellent guide, very courteous and attentive to our needs. He made sure we were comfortable, as it was a little brisk out.... More

I called this company during off season to book our jeep tour. We had a truck with an open top so that you could stand up, hold on to the rail, and take pictures from the top. Our tour guide, Grady, was a veteran high country driver who let us decide where we wanted to go on our tour. The... More

Mary has worked with us and provided excellent service renting five to eight units to our group. We have had only one ATV that had trouble... More

We had a great time in the San Juan backcountry snowmobiling through beautiful scenery. Our guides Larry and Jessica were very friendly, helpful, considerate and fun. Excellent equipment and loaner gear. Matched the trails perfectly to our skill level through 2-hour trip. As we got better they took us on more exciting trails. Nice to find such great Texas hospitality... More

We were very impressed with San Juan Backcountry Snowmobile Tours. We had looked at several other companies in the area in the days leading up to our trip. We called another company and they promised to "call us right back". When we didn't hear from them 2 days later, we called SJ Backcountry. They were friendly, courteous, and helpful on... More

We were planning on a trip to a ghost town for lunch on ATVs and so were our guides. Then, here came the snow ! We were dressed for cold but not that cold and the staff at San Juan Back Country did all they could to help. We were provided slickers, goggles, etc and a choice of driving up... More

The folks at back country had extra coats, gloves and rain gear for those of us not expecting blizzard conditions for the ATV tour so we were able to have a great time in spite of the weather!

Being somewhat new to jeeping, I decided to go out on the jeep trails, out of Silverton with an experienced guide. Doug from San Juan Backcountry was a lucky find! An extremely knowledgeable guide and driver with a calm demeanor. Doug was very patient with my questions about the trails and very helpful with suggestions on how to drive on... More

We had the pleasure of a tour with San Juan Backcountry one week ago today. (Sun. Sept 8th). I had scheduled the tour several weeks prior and after reading reviews decided to ask for Crazy Bob to be our guide. We wanted a back country, back road adventure. Not sure what happened, but somehow we got scheduled for a drive... More

What a great experience, I walked off the street with an off the wall request and Larry and his wife (sorry, forgot your name) bent over backwards to help me. Going out of their way changing their plans for the day and Larry even worked late almost missing an important meeting to help me. He pointed out all of the... More
