We had Jeff as a driver & he was a blast. He was very informative & just fun. This was a great way to see the canyon without having to hike everywhere. It is well worth the trip!

Located just outside the Palo Duro Canyon state park entrance, we took the 3 hour tour for $65 per person. It was worth every penny. Bring cash. They don't take credit cards. There were four of us and a guide in an open modified suburban. We went through some rough terrain and we had a ball! We saw deer, all kinds of birds, coyote poop, overlooked the rim into the Canyon and up and down some steep trails. The 3 hours flew by. The ranch is privately owned and is used just for the tours. Bring a camera!

We arrived early for our scheduled one-hour ride. Welcomed by the staff and soon paid for our trip. Jeff was our driver. The scenes we saw, the stories we heard, the eagles that flew over us; we will remember forever. Great experience. 144 pictures and 10 videos, none wasted.

Unfortunately this is the first time since we started traveling that we did not agree with other viewers. We opted to give Elkins Ranch 2 stars bc the views were great and our tour guide Bill was personable. "Jeep Tours" were actually 90 model suburbans with the tops cut off. The "jeep" died twice during our 1 1/2 hour tour and we were not sure it would make it through some of the rougher spots. Overall, just was not what we were expecting for our tour. It has potential to be great just needs improvement!

This was or first attraction when we arrived in the Canyon area so it made for a great introduction to the canyon.

We had two guides as one of them was learning the route. This made for a very special treat for us.

Not only were the guides informative they were genuinely interested in making sure we had a great experience. One of the guides helped my son look over the side of the canyon wall safely and took him to see a beaver dam.

This is a highlight of or trip so far. Would definitely recommend.
