With more than 30 years of experience, Timberline Tours is the leading Vail jeep tour guide service, and our experienced guides bring knowledge, skill, and a commitment to safety into the backcountry so that you can fully enjoy what unfolds along the trail.

You do not need to pick a trail when booking a jeep tour. Our expert guides will work with you on the day of your trip to determine the best tour available depending on season, trail conditions, weather, and group dynamics.

Groups of 3 or fewer will be combined with other people in the jeep looking for a similar experience. If you would prefer a private jeep, please contact us directly to request a private trip.

Jeep Tours: What to expect

A Timberline Tours jeep tour begins when your guide picks you up and takes some time to find out more about your group’s preferences. Guides will want to hear what you’re most excited about exploring, and they’ll give you some options to consider based on that day’s open trails, weather conditions, recent weather events, and recently reported opportunities for wildlife and wildflower viewing. Timberline Tours customizes its jeep tours to meet and exceed guest expectations, so that’s why we value guest input from the moment you book your trip until even after you’ve returned home.
