I was pleasantly exhausted after a day-long trip up the Imogene Pass. Our group reserved all three Jeeps and every person had a great time. Unlike the other jeep companies that I saw, we had comfortable seats (no benches) with individual heat. We went all the way up the Imogene pass and experienced everything from hot sun to still-frozen snow and ice. Amazing scenery that I would never have experienced any other way. The drivers are pros - they navigated the rocks and streams adeptly and shared interesting facts along the way. We stopped for lunch (we took a cooler) at a gorgeous lake - just perfect. One note: no bathrooms, although I understand that the forest service usually puts out porta-potties at various intervals on the trails. We found our own facilities (bushes and rocks) and went merrily on our way. I honestly am amazed that it didn't cost more - this was the highlight of a trip to a gorgeous place. I could not recommend Alpine more!

Hey! Thanks for the kind words. I did contact the forest service after your trip and asked about the porta potties and they got them up the next day. A little late for you but they are available now.

We do offer the best value in town and are pleased that you enjoyed the trip so much. Really hope you can make it back again. Michael

This trip was the highlight of our vacation. Jim was an awesome guide and we could have never seen such amazing sites without him. The terrain can be Rocky at times so the comfort of these seats is a detail that should not be overlooked!

We love to hear that. We get many clients who ride the Durango to Silverton train and say they like our tour better. Really great to hear such feedback. We try our best to give the best possible trip anywhere. Guess it is working. Michael

Our family of 6, 4 kids ages 12-20, were in Ouray last week and booked a private Jeep tour with Alpine. Michael picked us up at our hotel and our amazing afternoon started. He recommended where to go based on the current weather, wind, and snow melt. I frequented Ouray as a kid and my dad always drove our jeep but having a guide is the way to go! The jeep was roomy and comfortable and Michael talked to us and pointed out things along the way. We were able to make it up to Upper Silver Lake, first group of the season and the views were absolutely breathtaking. My family had never been to Colorado and didn't want to leave. Michael was awesome to spend the afternoon with and all my family said the tour was better than they could have imagined. Book with Alpine, you won't be disappointed.

Took a private Jeep tour into the mountains so we could stop when and where we wanted and "customize" our destination. Dealing with Alpine Scenic Jeep Tours from booking to arrival was a breeze. Very much enjoyed and appreciated the service that they gave.
Our guide was terrific from information given about different sites along the trail to making sure that everyone was comfortable along the way. He was great with idle conversation as we went along and one thing that I really appreciated is a couple of questions we asked that he didn't know the answer to...he just said "I really don't know." as opposed to other guides that I could tell just made something up.
Would use them again in a flash.

I had never been to Colorado before and this tour was something that we planned on a whim but it was well worth it. Michael was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable. He made the experience enjoyable and we had a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone especially if you've never been to Colorado before. The views were spectacular and everyone that I had contact with was very nice and helpful. Also, the vehicle that they do the tour with is very comfortable with heated bucket seats and an adjustable seat belt.
