I have used a number of fishing guides in Telluride and there is none better then Telluride Outside. They have the best guides and the best private water options. If you want to maximize the experience use them. I've used them 3 times now and will use no one else.

As a concierge, I book many trips with the folks at Telluride Outside for guests. As a newcomer to Telluride, I've been on snowmobiling, rafting, fly fishing, and 4x4 trips with them, getting to know the area and all that it has to offer. I can't say enough good things about their trips and services. Their guides are friendly, knowledgeable... More

Took the half day trip up Imogene Pass. Our driver Roma was great...gave us a lot of history and laughs. Rugged bumpy road but worth it for the grand view...woohoo!Next time we will do the full day. Don't miss this one.

Took the 4x4 trip to Tomboy mine site. It was raining on and off, but our tour guide, Roma handled the very narrow road with ease. It was exciting and the views were great. Highly recommend the trip.

Well, this is quite the tour! The husband and I are not fans of tours, but this was really worth the money and time. Our driver, Roger, was a fount of information, history and local lore. He and the views were great! Loved the history at the different mines and all the information Roger shared. Excellent way to spend the... More

Had been looking forward to this tour, as the pass was still closed on our last visit a few years ago. And Scott, our guide didn't disappoint manoeuvring the Chevy down the steep & narrow trail & around the switchbacks - great fun & all 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks

I took my 2 adult sons to fly fish on the San Miguel just outside of Telluride. Richard Post was our solo guide and he was amazing! He was a great teacher and just so patient and supportive in his approach. The entire afternoon was an exciting experience. Richard really knows the area well and he is so knowledgeable that...

This was my second trip up to Imogene Pass but it was just as awesome as the first time. We went up with Roger and really enjoyed and appreciated all the history about the area. Having grown up in Telluride, he had alot of interesting stories. Despite the crazy road and rain on our way down, we felt completely safe... More

Breathtaking views mixed with historical tours. There's plenty of hair raising moments climbing along this old mining road. The views at the top are worth every bump & scare. It's not to be missed. For extra fun try to get your tour with Roma. He is an outstanding & talented guide!!!!

We got extremely lucky booking a last minute off road tour with this one. Normally we would do extensive research on TripAdvisor , but we made a last-minute decision to rent a half day tour with Telluride outside. This is by far the best trail tour that we have ever had. Our guide, Roma , was absolutely outstanding and was... More
