4 x 4 Tour Information

For reservations call: 970-728-9749 Dave@TellurideTours.com

We use the Swiss Army Pinzgauer. These trucks are built in Austria and are exceptional mountain vehicles. With 14” of ground clearance, low gearing, narrow width ( important when needing to pass wider vehicles on such narrow roads), and exceptionally tight turning radius.
Two are 4 wheel drive and have been customized to hold a maximum of 11 plus a driver. Seating is tight and passengers need be friendly. There are 9 forward facing seats.
Our 3rd truck is a 6 wheel drive with room for 13 plus driver. With 2 forward facing bench seats plus the 1 “shotgun”seat up front you get 9 forward facing seats. Don’t be fooled, the turning radius is way better than most “conventional rigs”
