This was the highlight of our Colorado vacation!

Wyatt was our driver and he was incredibly informative in all things from the history of the area to the geological aspects of the rocks and mountain formations.

We went on an extensive ride right through the mountains through large expanses of land as well as tiny hard to get through triails that Wyatt maneuvered with finesse and confidence. The country up in Red Canyon Rock is absolutely exquisite. We were a small group of four and Wyatt encouraged us to ask him to stop for photos wherever we wanted. He kept emphasizing that this was our trip and was so accommodating as well as highly personable.

The best part of the tour though in my opinion was the lesser known spot at the very top of the mountain where there was an arch formation that created a natural window to the immense valley below. Apparently this was a sacred place of worship for the Ute Indian tribe. Looking over the great expense below I could picture the herds of Buffalo that long ago graced the plains. Wyatt’s knowledge of Indian history heightened the experience as we lost ourselves in our own imaginations of what life must have been like thousands of years ago in this very spot.

And just when we thought it was over, we were in for another treat. We were taken to see actual dinosaur footprints! It was a super narrow road high above the city and we learned how the ocean and movement of the earth collided in such a way as to preserve and reveal these footprints on the side of a rock formation. It was fascinating!

Overall, the trip was worth every penny and more. I highly encourage anyone to try this and make sure you ask for Wyatt.

On another note, feel free to tip Wyatt at the end as we were more than happy to do as were the other attendees. He really earned it.

Thank you Colorado Jeep Tours and thank you Wyatt for making this an adventure to remember forever.

After reading the brochures, we chose Colorado Jeep Tours to explore the Gold Belt Tour. The trip exceeded our expectations. Our driver/guide, Tom, was extremely knowledgeable, a good driver, and made the trip informative & entertaining. Our two labs were welcomed & loved Tom! Worth every penny! Thank you! 🐾

My wife and I took a mini vacation to Canon City to check out the many attractions available. A few included the Royal Gorge train ride, the bridge, (gondola wasn't running due to high winds, bummed) prison and other museums, etc.
But the highlight of our trip was the Colorado Jeep tour. Mother nature blessed us with quite possibly the worst touring weather available. Drizzle and thick fog.
However, with that said, Wilson made the trip very fun and educational. The man is a native of the area and seriously knows his stuff. Tried throwing him a couple curve ball questions that I thought may trip him up, he fired back answers with more detail than I expected.
Great man. Not just as a tour guide, but as someone that actually cares about the people he's entertaining.
Highly recommend the tour, and Wilson as your guide.

The idea of this tour is great. The tour guide however was extremely rude to us. We were a group of 5 women and at one point he said, "in order to make this a successful tour you must ask me questions." We were expecting to be given a proper tour, not a kids field trip with assignments. He lost his temper and became aggravated after we had stepped out of the jeep for an overlook, but then there was an issue with the number of open seat belts. He then proceeded to blame the two girls sitting on that side, when in fact he has an extra buckle that didn't have it's opposite attachment piece. He kept muttering "look at what you've done now," as if we are children being reprimanded. He also was out of touch with current day issues and in all his historical knowledge forgot to mention most of the tribes were moved out of the canyons because of American settlers and forced out of their homes. He glamorized the homestead act but didn't mention how in current day it's role in the large disparity in the social-economics of Colorado. He went on to talk to us about the KKK and how they influenced the area. For a bunch of women who are from Virginia holding high degrees (which he asked at the beginning of the tour), we are well aware of the influence they had around the country. We are also a group of women of color so it seemed inappropriate to spend 20 minutes of our trip on an almost glorification of their influence. This tour should have been designed for us, and the ONE time we asked for a moment for photos he quickly said "we have a schedule one picture and let's go." He went on about the flora and fauna of the canyons, none of which we were interested in. He made it seem like it was so spectacular and something we've never seen before, when as I've mentioned we are from Virginia and have mountains, hiking trails, wild life, and forestry as well. We were not at all impressed by the price of this tour and the rude behavior we received, totally not worth it and I've already told people who were planning to visit Colorado to not consider this at all.

Advice: Find someone who doesn't need to rely on the tourists for conversation. Find someone who is aware of how to appropriately interact with women and people of color. Find someone who can be flexible with photo taking opportunities or what sites we'd prefer to see instead of wasting time on floura, fauna, and the history of the KKK. Find someone who isn't rude to your tourists.

Our guide/driver was Paul. He provided wonderful commentary thru the whole Jeep excursion and made us feel very comfortable. The ability to combine this with the Royal Gorge Route train ride made it a great day!

Went to go ride the jeeps and had my wheelchair with me - but the young lady at the front counter was VERY ANGRY that I parked near the front door.
Without asking me anything about the wheelchair - she insisted I immediately move my car and my wheelchair across the street and wheelchair it back it across a road to ask about my jeep tour.
There are no signs saying “NO PARKING” and there is no “Handicap Parking” – just an angry young lady who lost a sale…..
You will never see a dollar of my money, or my family’s money – PS aren’t you supposed to be ADA friendly at businesses? How is parking across the street in wheelchair ADA friendly? If you don’t want handicapped people coming around – put up some signs….

We paid nearly $400 for a tour from 1pm-4pm at the red canyon park. We have two small children that need car seats. I would not recommend this at all for children with car seats. We were on one side and another group was on the other. 9/10 times when the tour guide pointed something out it was on the side my child could not turn around and see, and you can't unbuckle them because the jeep is moving. We also spent about 35 minutes of the 3 hour tour going through residential streets. If you're local to CO and have light offroading experience, you're better off renting a Jeep and driving yourself.

My friend and I loved this tour. It left promptly at 9 with just the two of us and after a brief drive through the Winery at Holy Cross Abbey, travelled on the historic, gravel Phantom Canyon Road alongside Eight Mile Creek amid beautiful, unspoiled scenery, stopping periodically to take photos. Our driver, Didi, was knowledgeable about the history and geology of the area and local flora and fauna. We ate lunch in Victor, and were tempted by the cookies and cakes at the Gold Camp Bakery. We travelled on to Cripple Creek and returned on the hair-raising Shelf Road. Not only was Didi a careful driver, but she was exceedingly accommodating, stopping whenever she could so we could take pictures of the interesting sights along the way. We even came across a small herd of bighorn sheep!

The only problem we encountered was, as 70 something women, we found the Jeep somewhat difficult to climb in and out of.

Although the trip is pricey, it’s well worth every penny.

Wyatt was our guide, and we really appreciated his knowledge of the area as well as his deep understanding of geology.

Going through the canyon on the Gold Belt Tour, hearing about special points of interest and seeing things we have never seen, gave us a much better feel for an area that we thought we knew. Being up in stadium seating on a Jeep was so cool!

This trip was well worth the money and we'd encourage anyone to enjoy it.

Our half-day jeep tour of the Red Canyon Loop with Guide Jessica was outstanding! Jessica was very well informed about the history, geology, the trees, and plants of this beautiful area, extremely polite, humorous, and seemed very experienced. Skyline Drive was wonderful, and Jessica made it even more special by playing John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain” High during this drive! Seeing the footprints of multi-ton dinosaurs that walked on several million years before was surreal. This tour is highly recommended and will create some wonderful memories, like it did for us... I would recommend this tour and Guide Jessica!
