I've noticed, quite understandably, that most reviews of Colorado in general and of Telluride in particular focus on skiing and snowmobiling. Winter activities, to be sure. But my wife and I travel to Colorado and Telluride in the summer. No skiing or snowmobiling for us. Instead, we prefer scenery and history. And Telluride Outside provides all of that. Located at...

Our family of four had a great day snowmobile with Telluride Outside tours. It was a beautiful day, perfect for riding through the mountains! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area. He took us on a great trail, even making our own at one point. He was also very patient with me as I chickened out on a hill... More

6 or 7 days of skiing can take a lot of most skiers, even the best and most energetic. I suggest a half-day snowmobile trip with Telluride Outside. They pick you up, drive you to trail head in Sawpit and provide professional services and equipment for an all out enjoyable trail ride. The scenery is second-to-none and you have to... More

This was a great day away from the slopes and the Telluride Outside crew looked after us very well. John in their office took our booking and Jesse was our guide. The whole tour went seamlessly and I highly recommend it. We took the morning half day snowmobile tour and had a hoot! We met the transfer at their office,... More

Our family of 6 had 2 guides for a beautiful winter fly fishing trip. We rented all necessary equipment and stayed plenty warm and dry. A delicious lunch was provided which was more than what we could eat. The guides were very knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. We booked a full day which we really needed as the drive took about...

Our family of 4 (two 40 something adults and two teens) just took a snowmobile tour with Roy. The entire process was a great experience. The reservation was easy to make and they accommodated a change I made with no problem. The ride to the trail was easy and comfortable. They provided us with boots and snowsuits (for those who...

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
