The half-day tour is four hours. But please note, our guide offered to take us on a side trip to Ironton and our trip was a little longer. Great trip!

Yes! Switzerland of America, along with several other businesses in Ouray offer Jeep rentals. We did this last year and loved it. We did the guided tour this year so my husband could enjoy the sights instead of driving!
