The train to the top of Pikes Peak was booked way past the time we could stay. So we took a chance on a Jeep ride to the top. Boy did we have FUN! Debbi our driver and tour guide was great! She catered to our grandsons and may the trip extra fun for them. They got to write their names in the snow near the top of Pikes Peak and got to bolder climb on some big rocks on the way down. What fun! We got to see, touch, and enjoy things we never would have on the train. Highly recommend the jeep ride and Debbi as your guide to really enjoy Pikes Peak.

Very cool! Debbi is perfect for kids, and adults too! She brings an added touch with her photography background and knows how to capture a moment. We really appreciate the great review! Thank you!!

We had a great experience riding with Clint. We were a little nervous with bringing an 8 year old and 4 year old, but Clint was great with them and everyone had a blast. Clint was informative, funny, and patient. Would love to do another tour with him as our driver next time we are in town!

I have to agree with the many other reviewers who were more than pleased with this option over the cog railway to the top of Pikes Peak! Debbi was fabulous! We lucked into a a great view with sun, snow and a rainbow and with enough time to enjoy the scenery! The flexibility we had on where to stop and spend our time really made this the perfect way to go and the donuts at the top were a real treat! I would totally recommend this tour to anyone.

Was really upset that the Cog Railroad was booked the whole week we were in Colorado. But then we heard about Manitou Springs Jeep Tours. So happy we did. Our tour with Sherri was AWESOME!!! Sherri is so knowledgeable about the mountain we learned a lot and had great photo ops. She made sure our 10 year old got to rock climb and write his name in the snow!! We all had a wonderful trip up and back down Pike's Peak!! Loved it.

Was really bummed out when I found the Cog Railway was booked. Thankfully Manitou Springs Adventures came to our rescue & was truly a great experience & we got the better end of the deal by not going on the Railway. Our driver Debbie made it a great adventure. Even though the weather didn't cooperate that day, by the time we got to the top was 47 degrees & sleeting, not a good view but still made memories! This is the way to go to the top & they will stop along the way for U to snap pics! Provide snacks, bottled water & even buy U a donut @ the summit (was still warm!) Yummy!
