      Don't miss this tour!
      Terrific tour! Saw great sites from all kinds of different viewpoints. Guide Coach was excellent. Very safe driver, really informative and friendly. Great tour to combine with Royal Gorge Railroad because we saw the sites from above and below. I strongly recommend both tours. You'll have a great experience.

      Loved it
      First trip to the area and the jeep tour was amazing we learned so much about the area and the views were amazing. Our tour guide Janine did such an amazing job. I would go back and do some of the other jeep tours. Way worth the money plus on this tour we got tickets to the Gorge which we went and did on a separate day.

      Excellent tour and guide/driver (Coach)!
      We had an amazing time!! Our driver (Coach) was very knowledgeable and gave a great history and geology lesson along with the tour including Canon city and nearby parks and mountains. He was energetic and entertaining even though we were the only two people on this tour. His driving was excellent on off roads and he stopped at several great spots to take pictures. It was a great experience to see Royal Gorge from the bridge since we took a train ride by the river in the morning. Highly recommend this tour!

      Jeep tour with DeDe
      Wow! It was a great experience. We got to see the Royal Gorge from the top side beginning in Cañon City. Dede was a terrific guide and spoke of the history of Canon City, Royal Gorge and surrounding areas. I saw my first dinosaur fossils!!! This would be a great experience for the entire family. Thanks DeDe!

      Much richer experience than going to the Royal Gorge on your own
      DeDe was our guide and we really loved the tour, especially her explanations of the history of the area. She showed us lots of historical photos and really accommodated our photo taking. The experience was so much richer than if we'd gone to the Royal Gorge by ourselves -- she took us places in the jeep that most people aren't allowed to visit. She even showed us screen grabs of the movie in which she was an extra (which we watched later that night).

      Highlight of our Vacation
      From Amy in the office to Coach (Bruce) behind the wheel, this is a first class operation. Amy was great from her warm welcome to providing valuable information about other excursions and other area attractions. "Coach" was a great tour guide. His explanation of the areas geography and history was incredible. We have taken jeep tours in other parts of Colorado, but this was by far, the best..

    Trip through Red Canyon was informative with great views over every hill. Having an experienced jeep driver get up the rugged park roads to remote areas is much better than trying to do it yourself. My Prius would have no chance on those roads. Is a gorgeous area full of things to see, was glad to be able to see some of the roads less traveled by.

    For over 3.5 hours Tom Snoke drove us to and through places in the Red Canyon area that we never would have seen or visited. He was exceptionally well versed on the area and was well skilled in navigating the terrain that was both challenging and visually unique. Colorado Jeep Tours provided a great experience with a quality vehicle and route that left us wishing that it wouldn't end for another 3 hours.

    If you want a fun and wonderfully educational day with your children or grandchildren, this is it. We took our granddaughters and everyone had an amazing time. Our guide, Richard, did an exceptional job especially for our granddaughters relating the history and geology of this beautiful area. Richard was very well informed, extremely polite, humorous and very experienced. There were many highlights, but we all agree the best was seeing the footprints of a multi-ton Stegosaurus that walked on the very spot we were standing on about 100 million years before we arrived. This is a highly recommended adventure and experience. You will create some wonderful memories. Wear plenty of sunscreen.

    This experience was great! We were able to access areas of the red canyon that our prius never would have reached! Our guide Richard was personable, friendly, and knowledgeable! His awesome driving skills and experience with the climate and terrain allowed us to have an exciting, yet safe off-road drive. Gorgeous scenery, including a petroglyph stop and dinosaur footprints. We recommend highly, just make sure to keep that seat belt buckled!

    Highlight of my Colorado trip. Amazing experience! It was a bumpy ride but that made it so fun! Best to go from 5-8pm so it’s cool outside and may see some wildlife on the way. Ask for Richard if you can! He is the bomb and is super sweet!!

    We thoroughly enjoyed the jeep tour through Red Canyon (half day). It was very hot, but cold, iced water was supplied by the company. Our guide, Richard, was great; he was affable, very attentive to our needs, informative, and a safe driver. It's a bumpy ride, so be prepared! Richard was knowledgeable about the history, the geology, the geography, as well as the flora and fauna of the region. He invited questions and comments along the way. We were very pleased with the experience.

    Fantastic tour and tour guide. Richard was very knowledgeable as well as a very safe driver. The roads are narrow and scary at times so beware. Even with the road conditions we felt our driver knew what he was doing. Great trip. Highly recommended.

    The Red Rock Canyon Jeep tour was a great off road experience! Wyatt, our guide, was the BEST! Very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and history behind the geological formations. Scenery was amazing and the off roading was rough but fun. Wyatt took great care of us and we felt very safe with him at the wheel. Would highly recommend this tour, just be prepared for a very bumpy ride and cliff side roads. It was dry for our tour so very dusty. Would not recommend for small children.

    Our guide Steve was Great. Very informative.
    He gave us great information to the history of Canon, the layers on the side of the mountain showing the history of the land,the plants in the area...

    I noticed he picked up trash along the way, took pictures of the land where it was damaged by people. He took Great Pride in the country side and wanting to preserve it's natural beauty and the story that it tells.

    My family booked the Red Canyon tour and our 9-year old had a lot of fun on this trip. Our guide Richard was very knowledgeable about the area and clearly loves his job. He made it fun for all of us! The trip is WAY more bumpy than we thought it would be, so just be prepared to be fully shaken for about 3 hours. The trip felt a bit long for us, but that's a personal preference. If you're into geology and/or biology and/or history, this will be an informative adventure.
