We chose this 4x4 jeep tour after much consideration. We had decided we wanted to do a jeep tour that would give us history and scenary at the same time. We got what we asked for ! We chose the half day (4 hour) tour.
The guide, Bob, was wonderful and very informative. He drove us to St. Elmo (an old mining ghost town) where my daughter got to feed the ground squirrels (tons of them would just come sit right on your lap and eat out of your hand). We bought feed for t hem from the general store there. She loved that !
From there we traveled up to the Mary Murphy Mine. You go about 13,000 feet up I believe on very small, rocky, shelf roads. it was a blast ! The scenary was beautiful. We felt very safe the whole time - even though the road was VERY narrow and the drop offs a LONG way down ! :) but it was fun. Our kids enjoyed it a lot. We learned the history the mine and the area. Lots of photo ops.
I would definitely recommend this jeep tour company out of Buena Vista. Next time I think I'd like to try their all day trip up Mount Antero ! :)
