Welcome to Colorado!!
All early Fall Tours leave at 7:00, 11:30, and 4:00 - Daily.
Touring fun has been busy with great Summer weather and scenery, and September/October adventures are here! Fall colors and haunted tours, ride to Cripple Creek/Victor and check it out. Beautiful Fall scenery and haunted tales of the old west in these historic mining towns.
We offer great local guides, lots of fun, snacks, fair prices, great photos, and full of local information!
Want to avoid frostbite and an hour long shuttle line, then take a ride in our Jeeps. We keep our 4 Door Jeep Wranglers covered and comfortable so you will be DRY & WARM and relaxed on your summit tour. Your guide, and 4 passengers, and larger groups just use more Jeeps! We will get you to directly to the summit in Jeep style! We often have room for last minute bookings....all you have to do is call!
A note about our weather - we get pop-up showers around the region and we still go in them. The great part about our tours is that if a shower does develop, you are in an enclosed Jeep with an experienced driver/guide. They usually don't last long and many times provide a cool spectacle with a rainbow out east!
We regularly pair people up with others in our Jeeps....if you wish to have a Private Jeep for your family or group, just let us know when you call to book. We will price the tour according to your group size and seats required to reserve your vehicle.....very easy to do. Otherwise, you will have fun meeting new friends on your path to adventure! :)
We have been daily round-trip touring Pikes Peak and our other locations continually for years! We travel 3 times daily all year-round, and offer personalized services, and unique keepsake momentos of your day with us. Reserve your Jeep adventure with us, and we would be honored to take you.
PLEASE BOOK EARLY!
Last minute seats available on most days, call and check with us.

5 Star Trip Advisor Review - June 29, 2019 - “Are you thinking of visiting the summit of Pike’s Peak? Don’t take the fun out of the experience by having to drive yourself. Hire these professionals, sit back and take it all in. Due to the construction of the new visitors center, you can’t even drive yourself all the way to the top. You must stop, park, and take a shuttle bus. Our guide, Michael was awesome. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and great with our daughters (8&11). If anyone asks me about this trip to Pike’s Peak, the first thing that they will hear will be about Manitou Springs Adventures and our guide, Micheal. Thank you Michael and Steve. Michael, good luck to you and your bride as you await the arrival of your son. We will be praying for you. -The Spears Family”
5 Star Trip Advisor Review - June 25, 2019 – “I just got back from the Pike's Peak tour which was fantastic! My original plan was to drive myself in my rental car, but changed my mind when I read about how many people burn up their brakes because they are not used to driving up and down extreme grades. I also realized that I wanted to see the beautiful views, not just the yellow and white lines on the road. I went online, but was bummed out when it showed no available tours while I was here. I called, hoping they might have a cancellation, and was fit in with another family of 5 for the next day. Our group was divided between 2 jeeps, with 3 tourists and a driver in each. Our driver was Bear (his legal name and he told us how he got it), the other jeep was driven by Michael. They worked together quite well, stopping at the same times, and pointing out perfect places to take pictures. Bear was great, taking pictures so I didn't just end up with selfies. Bear obviously loves his job, sharing stories and information about the area. They provided snacks and water, and Bear and Michael were vigilant in making sure that we were not having too much trouble with the altitude. If you are trying to decide whether or not to take this tour, go on and just do it. It was a bit more expensive than Gray Line, but the service was so much more personal. It was also cheaper than another company's jeep tour, and the jeeps are enclosed so they are warm when you get to the freezing temperatures. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour, and ask for Bear or Michael---you won't be disappointed” Kathleen V
5 Star Trip Advisor Review - June 23, 2019 – “I took the tour with my wife and my brother. We decided to take the 7:00 am tour and were greeted immediately with friendly smiles. Make sure to get there early because you do have to sign some waivers (basic stuff), but once we were finished everything was ready to go. Michael was our guide and he was great. Very informative, personal, and made every effort to make sure we got the most out of the tour. The day we went temps were very cold for June, and the road to the summit was closed in two different places. Michael was very apologetic and told us that we would wait as long as he was able to see if the roads would open, and due to the sun being out we were able to make it, and it is definitely an awe-inspiring view. Being someone that lives at sea level, I was very nervous with going that high because I am not used to it at all. I would recommend drinking a bottle of water before you get there and then drinking another (they provide water) on your way up the summit. I had no problems except for getting light headed once. Also, make sure you bring layers to add as you go up the mountain. It was in the 70s when we left and was approximately 25 with the wind chill when we reached the summit. I would definitely recommend this to others who want to experience the summit of Pikes Peak. It definitely is better than having to stop in your own vehicle and then waiting on a shuttle. We already can't wait to go back so we can take the tour again.” Msu-bgibson
5 Star Trip Advisor Rating, June 5, 2019: “I booked a private Pike's Peak tour for my
parents and me when we were in town for a family meeting. The owner was kind
enough to add my cousin as a last- minute addition, since we had booked the
entire vehicle. (4 plus the driver in the Jeep was a little cozy, so book the
whole Jeep as a private tour if you are concerned about space - otherwise they
may add another group to your tour.) We had a great time. Rae was an amazing
driver on the crazy roads up and down the mountain, and we did not feel unsafe
at all. She stopped at all the great photo spots and took photos for us. She
was funny and knowledgeable. It was a highlight of our trip and would highly
5 Star Trip Advisor Rating, June 4, 2019: “This is an excellent way to get to to the summit. Not only can everyone in your group pay attention to the scenery, there is no wear and tear on your own car. The guides know the best places to pullover to enjoy the scenery and take pictures and they are knowledgeable about the area as well. Oh- did I mention they are fun too? Amanda was great. (so was Mike...but he was in the other jeep :) )”
5 Star Trip Advisor Rating, June 3, 2019: “This was a group tour for 28! They were extremely accommodating especially for the elders in our group!”
5 Star Trip Advisor Rating, June 2, 2019: “On a previous trip to Colorado, we drove to the summit of Pike’s Peak in our rental car. This time we were provided with an underpowered wimp of a car which could barely toddle up the smaller hills, so we decided to trust a professional for our anticipated return to the Peak; we are so happy we did. First of all, High Country Excursions is priced significantly lower than their competitors. One would think that would mean that they skimp on service, but that would be incorrect. Our guide, Bear (his real name, BTW) met us at our car and walked us to the homey office to take care of the necessary paperwork. We were provided coffee, restrooms, water, snacks, and a warm welcome. Bear told us how the trip would go and gave us advice for avoiding altitude sickness before we left. Then we set off for our adventure in our fully enclosed, warm and cozy Jeeps. Bear timed our arrival at the gates so that we had time for another restroom stop and a chat before the gates opened, and we didn’t have to wait in a long line or get behind a great deal of traffic at this popular tourist location. I do recommend the 7 am time slot for this reason. Bear was very knowledgeable about local mountain lore, wildlife, and the best stops for photos. When I make another trip to Colorado, I will be sure to book another trip from this company”.
5 Star Trip Advisor Rating, June 1, 2019: “I would highly recommend this trip up to Pikes Peak to anybody looking for an amazing view and some all-around amazing people. This was the best guided experience I have ever had. Michael was an amazing guide who will do anything to make sure you have an amazing experience as well as take some awesome photos. If i were to ever come back into the Colorado Springs area I would most defiantly use this company again.”
5 Star Trip Advisor Rating, May 26, 2019: “This excursion was an excellent pick and we had an excellent tour guide, Rae. Learned a lot about the Colorado Mining back in the days and present days as well. The scenery was absolutely beautiful! When booking an excursion with High Country Excursions request Rae, she’s fun, great personality and very knowledgeable. Thanks for a great day Rae!!!”

Driving Yourself Around vs Jeep Sightseeing Adventure?
If you decide to drive yourself - you will NOT see the views while driving, you don't know the places to stop for the best views, or where parking is at a premium, and you will probably overheat your brakes on the way down the Peak. Plus, you will be required to use the Pikes Peak shuttle as direct summit access is prohibited. We drive directly up with full summit access!

"My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary by returning to the top of Pikes Peak, which we did on our honeymoon. Renee was a fantastic guide - personable and knowledgeable about everything Colorado. Had a great time."
"Very thankful we made the decision to take the tour rather then drive it! It was well worth the money! Our guide, Bear was fabulous. He was a lot of fun, felt very safe with him and very knowledgeable! He stopped for us to take pics, made sure we were hydrated and had plenty of snacks. Had we driven it ourselves, we would not have been able to enjoy the view and we would not have been prepared for the altitude change. If you spend money on one tour this is the one to do! Thanks Bear for a great experience! The Lenz Family"
"Our trip to Pike's Peak was a great trip! The sights were awesome. Rhonda, our driver, was a wealth of information. She was very accommodating, even to the point of recommending backgrounds for pictures and taking pictures of our group. I highly recommend the trip to Pike's Peak, Manitou Springs Adventures, and Rhonda as a tour guide."

Some General Comments.....
1. FUN!!!!! The guides love what they do and this makes for a very fun no stress day.
2. No stress. They do the driving you do the observing. It is their vehicles not yours.
3. Educational. The guides are very knowledgeable. Not just in points of interest, but in the history/science of the area.
4. Kid friendly. The guides are fantastic with my children, and was very attentive to their needs, questions, and interest.
5. Adequate time. They do not rush you thru the experience. We made several stops along the way and once on top had more then enough time to look around. More then "others".
We will be recommending you guys to everyone who is headed that way.
THANK YOU !"
