This was my second trip up to Imogene Pass but it was just as awesome as the first time. We went up with Roger and really enjoyed and appreciated all the history about the area. Having grown up in Telluride, he had alot of interesting stories. Despite the crazy road and rain on our way down, we felt completely safe... More

Breathtaking views mixed with historical tours. There's plenty of hair raising moments climbing along this old mining road. The views at the top are worth every bump & scare. It's not to be missed. For extra fun try to get your tour with Roma. He is an outstanding & talented guide!!!!

We got extremely lucky booking a last minute off road tour with this one. Normally we would do extensive research on TripAdvisor , but we made a last-minute decision to rent a half day tour with Telluride outside. This is by far the best trail tour that we have ever had. Our guide, Roma , was absolutely outstanding and was... More

We took a morning 1/2 day trip from Telluride to Tomboy Mine and Imogene Pass. The driver Pete was very nice, told us history as we went. He has done this trip hundreds of time so knew where to put the jeep on some of the real narrow areas. Meeting a jeep, especially one with a driver who is not... More

My family and I secured a 4-hour trip with Roma, a very skilled driver of the steep and sometimes daunting road up to the top of the mountains in Telluride/Ouray. He was knowledgeable of the history but also has been driving this road for 22 years. We were very comfortable with his experience and skill. His stories were incredible and... More

These guys do it all! We fished with their guides and had a blast. Brian was our main guide and he was fantastic. But all of the staff and guides are extremely kind and helpful. We also rented a jeep and went on a mountain ride. Great times!

A group of 9 of us - all in our late 40s to middle 60s went on this thrilling, fun and amazing tour of Tomboy (a Colorado mining town WAY up in the mountains and Imogene Pass.

From start to end, this was a perfect experience! I called early and booked a slot for 10 people on a Saturday afternoon. Greg in reservations took my card and charged it for $25 per person with the understanding that he'd refund it all the day of so everybody could pay for their selves. I then had to call and... More
