Highlights
    What to Expect
    This breathtaking tour literally puts you on the edge of one of Colorado’s most picturesque attractions. Look down into the breathtaking Royal Gorge as this tour takes you over America’s highest suspension bridge. This trip climbs more than 1,500 vertical feet out of historic Cañon City to the south rim of the world famous Royal Gorge. After admiring the depths of the Gorge as we cross the 18 foot wide, 1,260 foot long bridge almost a thousand feet above the Arkansas River, we will climb another 500 feet to the awe-inspiring views seen from Fremont Peak. From this high point, you will be able to see everything from Pike’s Peak to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the Eastern Plains of Colorado. Very few people have been determined enough to hike to this view much less have the option to be driven to it.

    This adventure includes everything in the half day trip, lunch and a 4×4 climb to “Overlook Arch.” Your afternoon tour will wind its way through the bright red rock of the Fountain Formation which is the same red rock formation that made the Garden of the Gods and Red Rocks Amphitheater famous. This tour will also travel pass the Marsh and Cleveland Quarry sites to see where thousands of dinosaur bones have been excavated over the last 140 years. Your jeep will pass by Indian petroglyphs and the site of Colorado’s first oil well on its way back to the base.

    Woooooohoooooo! Those afternoon thunderstorms can really make for an interesting ride on summer afternoons. Some of my favorite tours out with our guides have been in crazy weather - lightning, freezing drizzle, and even snow. (Yep, we go year-round, regardless of the weather.) Sure, sunny days might make for slightly better pictures, but those wild Colorado weather days make for a much more exciting and memorable family adventure. And, isn't that what travel is all about anyway? We think so. If you thought that was fun, be sure to come back in the fifth season - MUD. The one that falls in the few weeks between winter and spring. That's the best! Thanks for the great review. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again.

    Visiting my best friend in Colorado and we spent the day on the jeep tour. Bob was a great guide, he loves the area and his stories about the people and the dinosaurs brought the geology and history to life. The scenery was beautiful and the stone arch at the top of Red Canyon

    Awesome! I would have to agree - the natural stone arch at the top of the mountain in Red Canyon is a personal favorite spot of mine as well. In fact, we've had two wedding proposals at that exact location this summer alone. So beautiful and peaceful! You can see why the Ute indians called our area home. Thank you for your nice comments about your guide Bob. We'll be sure to share your comments with him.

    This park was burned down a few years ago and now it's fully rebuilt and beautiful with scenic views. A treat for anyone in the Colorado area.

    Thank you, Theresa! So happy to hear that Bart showed you a good time on your tour. Congratulations on your anniversary, and best wishes for many more. We hope you'll come back on another anniversary for a different tour. I'm not sure which one you did, but we have three excellent adventures, and each one is unique.
