Here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (or as we like to call it, Jeep FAQs) about Colorado Jeep Tours. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us!
Which tour should I choose?
When choosing a tour, consider everyone in your family or group, their age, attention span, and what they what out of the tour. Also consider the length of the tour. Keep in mind that our tours stop quite often to let you get out to stretch your legs, admire the views, and to take pictures. All of our tours are incredibly scenic and can be done by almost anyone.
The Gold Belt Tour is the least rough of the tours we operate but is rich with history. This tour has the greatest elevation change topping out at 10,500 feet and covers more miles than our other trips. This equates to a bit more time in the jeep. The full day Gold Belt Tour includes lunch and is roughly 3 hours longer than the half day tours we offer. The half day tours do include steeper grades and rougher roads.
The half day Royal Gorge Loop includes more advanced trails with some rougher steep climbs. This is the longer of the two half day tours we offer and is our most popular tour. Includes vertical views down into the world famous Royal Gorge along with crossing over the Royal Gorge Bridge. The full day Royal Gorge Loop tour includes lunch and is about three hours longer in length. This full day excursion includes a little more steep, rough road combined with a smooth drive through the beautiful Fountain Formation know as Red Canyon Park.
Don’t forget to look at the multi adventure sport packages! We have something for everyone. Keep in mind that all of our tours are kid friendly but no one knows your kids like you do. Please consult with our friendly staff if you have any questions.
What to bring?
Keep in mind that Colorado’s weather is ever changing and it changes fast. Light to medium jackets may be needed in the summer and heavier jackets and stocking hats in late fall, winter, and early spring are recommended. Sun protection and sun glasses are suggested as well as any medication that you might need. Tennis shoes or boots are recommended. Try to stay away from flip flops or sandals. If you have long hair you may want to bring a hair tie. And of course don’t forget your camera. Please consult with your guide before the trip as to what to expect.
What if it rains or snows?
We go rain or shine! Some of the most memorable trips and views have been experienced on our tours because of wet or inclement weather. On occasion roads and trails can be closed during wet times of the year to protect that area. Tours may be altered due to road and trail conditions.
