Our tour with Leo to the Yankee Boy Basin was excellent. His description of mining, past and present, is knowledgeable. The views will last in our memories for a lifetime. We would recommend it to everyone.

Well worth the money. We did a half day tour up Corkscrew Pass. Our driver was knowledgeable and drove safely. Fantastic views and great experience to be up so high. We did a morning tour. The drive to the start of the trail was very cold so would recommend taking hats and other gear.

These people know their business and do everything they can to make sure you have a great experience. The jeep we rented was perfect. Brandy was so sweet and took all the time we needed explaining everything to us. The price was very reasonable. We look forward to renting there again next year.

My brother recommended this company for a jeep tour. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. I was a little nervous about a jeep tour on such narrow roads - if you can call them roads! No problem. Our driver, Mike was great! After we got started I felt very comfortable and safe. The views were spectacular. Don't miss this one.... More

Through in drives up to Yankee Boy, Alta Lakes and Clear Lake to round out our two day outing. SOA purchases new Jeeps each year so the equipment is always in great shape.
