Itinerary
Look down into the breathtaking Royal Gorge as this guided 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 you cross the 18-foot wide, 1,270 foot long bridge almost a thousand feet above the Arkansas River, you 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. On our way back down into Cañon City your guide will stop to show you dinosaur tracks left over 107 million years ago. This is a great trip for the whole family.

Your customized open-air jeep is modified with your comfort in mind. Your guides use air bag suspensions to smooth out the ride and thick cushion seats so you can view the spectacular scenery and wildlife that Colorado has to offer without worrying about the rough bumpy ride.

Awesome Tour with Ed

The Jeep tout was excellent and anything but boring. Went to a ton of neat places off-roading and our guide Ed was awesome. Very knowledgeable and personable. If you do this tour ask for Ed!!!

Great ride with Mel as rhe guide

We did the half day ride with Mel. It was terrific. We not only saw spectacular views from the tops of mountains and ridges, we learned about the geology and history of the people that make up the beautiful landscape. We highly recommend the excursion.

No, we really didn't do much walking at all. You see almost everything from the open-air Jeep.

Yes, but restrictions: If a "lap dog", it has to fit/sit on your lap or bag carrier -- no charge. If bigger, it stays on floor; there is a child's price for that. A legitimate service dog, no charge regardless of size. Go... More
