We called them day of to book a half day snowmobile adventure and they were so accommodating! They picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, and gave us hot chocolate after our ride. Jesse gave us an amazing tour full of beautiful scenery and waist deep snow. It was an unforgettable adrenaline rush and a highlight of... More

What a hair raising ride to the top of Tomboy Pass and the old Tomboy Mine. At times there was no more than a foot of road on either side of the truck. Richard our guide and driver was awesome. The "road" (and I use that term loosely) was very narrow, winding and treacherous. He was in total control at... More

Telluride Outside was a really great 4WD touring company. They cover pretty much all the scenic drives and locations with their experienced guides (my guide was Richard, really great guide) where a 4WD is a must. They take you through rugged routes at very high elevations which basically do not have a guard rail, just a plain cliff. So definitely... More

This was an amazing, a bit scary but worth it half day trip. Our driver and guide, Richard, picked us up at our residence and was very knowledgeable of the area and kept us well informed of what we were in for! He had extra blankets in the jeep for us. It was a bit chilly but going to 13,110... More

I have used a number of fishing guides in Telluride and there is none better then Telluride Outside. They have the best guides and the best private water options. If you want to maximize the experience use them. I've used them 3 times now and will use no one else.

As a concierge, I book many trips with the folks at Telluride Outside for guests. As a newcomer to Telluride, I've been on snowmobiling, rafting, fly fishing, and 4x4 trips with them, getting to know the area and all that it has to offer. I can't say enough good things about their trips and services. Their guides are friendly, knowledgeable... More

Took the half day trip up Imogene Pass. Our driver Roma was great...gave us a lot of history and laughs. Rugged bumpy road but worth it for the grand view...woohoo!Next time we will do the full day. Don't miss this one.

Took the 4x4 trip to Tomboy mine site. It was raining on and off, but our tour guide, Roma handled the very narrow road with ease. It was exciting and the views were great. Highly recommend the trip.

Well, this is quite the tour! The husband and I are not fans of tours, but this was really worth the money and time. Our driver, Roger, was a fount of information, history and local lore. He and the views were great! Loved the history at the different mines and all the information Roger shared. Excellent way to spend the... More

Had been looking forward to this tour, as the pass was still closed on our last visit a few years ago. And Scott, our guide didn't disappoint manoeuvring the Chevy down the steep & narrow trail & around the switchbacks - great fun & all 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks

Thank John W
