We truly enjoyed this Jeep tour! Our guide, Doug, was exceptional - stopped along the way to show us the variety of plant life in the mountains. He also shared stories about the area which made this trip quite memorable. We highly recommend this trip to others!

Jared was a great tour guide. Asked us at the beginning how adventurous we were feeling so we ended up taking a better ride to the mines. Extremely knowledgeable and competent.
