Whipper was our guide and was very personable and knowledgeable. He provided us with colorful and entertaining stories of the history and legends of the area. We were even provided a demonstration of why he acquired his name. The jeep tour included much more than I expected and I was delighted. One of the other passengers required some extra assistance and Whipper provided it in a very gracious and respectful manner. I would highly recommend this activity and definitely ask for Whipper to be your guide. You will not be disappointed.

We took the Adventures Out West Jeep tour of the Garden of the Gods Area and it was Awesome! Summit, our guide grew up in the area and his knowledge of the areas history and personal stories growing up in such a wonderful place added a lot to the enjoyment and overall experience.

nice tour with impressive views

Mustang Sally did a very good job as a guide. We were lucky because the thunderstorm stopped exactly at the start of our tour and the sun came back. It was still very fresh in the open jeep, but we were provided with warm blankets so that we could enjoy the tour. Nevertheless, the windproof jacket did no harm.
