Colorado Jeep Tours, located in the Royal Gorge region of Canon City, Colorado, is pleased to announce their new dog-friendly guided jeep tour policy, effective April, 2017. As more travelers are choosing to take their four-legged family members along on vacations, Colorado Jeep Tours has recognized the need to allow dogs onboard their off-road scenic guided tours. Now, with some exceptions and specific rules in place to insure the safety and enjoyment of all guests, dogs of all sizes and breeds – from tiny purse pups to giant breeds – will be allowed to ride along on excursions to the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, Red Canyon Park, and the Gold Belt Scenic Byway, an all-day adventure that travels to the historic gold mining towns of Cripple Creek and Victor, Colorado.
In order to participate in the tours, advance reservations are required (making note of the dog), along with a pre-tour signed Dog Waiver, and a day-of-tour clearance from the Colorado Jeep Tours guide and/or management. There is no fee for lap-held dogs on tour but, due to limited space in the jeeps, large dogs that cannot be held safely by the owner will be assessed a seat fee. For safety reasons, dogs may only participate in the jeeping portion of any combination tours, and cannot be taken into partner businesses (i.e. train rides, horseback riding, ranch chuckwagons, etc) unless those venues specifically permit dogs.
Colorado Jeep Tours offers high-quality, scenic, and educational tours, providing local information on such topics as history, geology, and paleontology while traveling on some of the most beautiful roads and trails in the Royal Gorge region of Fremont County, Colorado.
