Well worth the money. We did a half day tour up Corkscrew Pass. Our driver was knowledgeable and drove safely. Fantastic views and great experience to be up so high. We did a morning tour. The drive to the start of the trail was very cold so would recommend taking hats and other gear.

These people know their business and do everything they can to make sure you have a great experience. The jeep we rented was perfect. Brandy was so sweet and took all the time we needed explaining everything to us. The price was very reasonable. We look forward to renting there again next year.

My brother recommended this company for a jeep tour. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. I was a little nervous about a jeep tour on such narrow roads - if you can call them roads! No problem. Our driver, Mike was great! After we got started I felt very comfortable and safe. The views were spectacular. Don't miss this one.... More

Second annual jeep outing - we rented a 4 door automatic Jeep Rubicon and went over Imogene and Ophir pass. Through in drives up to Yankee Boy, Alta Lakes and Clear Lake to round out our two day outing. SOA purchases new Jeeps each year so the equipment is always in great shape. Our jeep had about 4200 miles and... More

Great 4x4 tour of the San Juan Mountains. We rode up and over Hurricane Pass to Lake Como. It's a fantastic experience and shouldn't be missed if you're visiting Ouray. Don't look down if you're afraid of heights. A bumpy but fun ride.

Definitely a must for people who don't like the beaten path. Our Driver, Mike Tarvin, was great. He knew all the best spots to take photos and was very passionate about the history of the mining community. The whole trip was a blast!!

We have been to this area before but since we have younger children this was our first time to rent a jeep. Everyone made the rental process so simple and we had such an amazing time. We had unknown circumstances at home that were affecting the dates we could travel and when I called to try and figure out how... More
