Amazing trip powered by the amazing Emily at Southwest Jeep Adventures! Equipment was perfect and included everything and more we could want for an awesome adventure to the Canyonlands. Service was top notch from start to finish!

The vehicle was as advertised and in good condition. I drove the Jeep on some easy & moderate trails during the day and slept in the rooftop tent at night. The Jeep was fully capable and handled the trails well. The rooftop tent was very simple to setup and stow. I was in Moab with a group and there were a few other vehicles with rooftop tents. I would say there was a bit of 'tent envy', as to the ease of use of this one. The refrigerator in the Jeep was very convenient and the additional equipment provided was far and above what others got with their rentals. Emily was friendly and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend to others.

Outstanding trip that was saved by Emily! We rented the Jeep Rubicon with camping gear and pop-up tent. Everything was clean, complete, and organized. Emily took time to thoroughly run through the vehicle and equipment so we were able to depart on our 3-day trip to Needles with confidence. That was NOT the experience of our companions who rented from a different vendor. Though their vehicle was newer, the gear was a mess and everything was dirty (despite claims of a ‘weekly deep clean’). If we would have had to rely that set up we wouldn’t have made it thru the first night.

What a blast! This was everything we had hoped for in our first dispersed camping experience. Emily was great to work with, the Jeep was east to drive and allowed us to reach some spectacular camping spots. Loved every minute!

Thanks to Emily, Moab now holds a special place in our hearts. The Jeep was well equipped and superbly maintained. The itinerary she made for us was perfect for what interests us. Cannot recommend Southwest Jeep Adventures enough!

Emily is a true sweetheart. She was kind, responsive and very supportive when my plans changed on short notice. I had a hard time letting go of my Jeep. It was a real adventure even though it turned out completely differently to what I had planned. I loved every second of driving that car.

We rented a great 2017 Sahara from Emily.
We drove it through Arches, Capital Reef, Goblin, Natural Bridges, Burr Trail, Bears Ears, Canyonlands and the White Rim Trail. It never let us down.
The owner, Emily, gave us so many great tips for the trip too. We highly recommend Southwest Jeep Adventures!

Our jeep rental experience was FLAWLESS!! Everything we needed was supplied by the owner and it was all in great condition. The pop up over landing camper was so comfortable and spacious, not to mention…FUN!
I hope one day to return to Moab and rent the jeep again through Southwest Adventures and explore more of this amazing area! We had the best time!

Emily was very helpful in explaining everything we needed to know about the Jeep as well as knowledgeable about the trip we were taking into the Canyonlands National Park, White Rim Road.

As an avid traveler, this was one of the most unique and life enhancing adventures I've been on. Truth is, as a 62 year old, out of shape cancer survivor, I wasn't sure if I could handle the physicality of Utah or the Jeep! (I travel with my 32 year old daughter who is an incredible beast!)
Between the amenities provided by Emily, the fun that Jeep life provided, and the encouragement of my daughter, I rose to the physical challenge.

We had a great time with the jeep riding in Moab and into Colorado. Emily provided everything we needed to spend the week camping and Nick picked us up and provided some great info on the area. We couldn't have had a better trip. Thanks!

The entire experience far exceeded our expectations. In fact, this trip will be so hard to beat we are already thinking about returning. I can't speak highly enough of Southwest Jeep Adventures.
The jeep was super cool and roof top tent is comfortable, convenient and fun. Emily is very organized and thoughtful; from the onboard fridge and cooking / camping gear to the towels and headlamps she has thought of everything and all the gear is in top notch condition. In addition, we asked for Emily's help in planning our trip/itinerary. She learned about our interests and gave us options - the perfect blend guidance while leaving room for exploration. Again, I recommend Emily and SW Jeep Adventures without hesitation - just an awesome trip!

Excellent experience, the vehicle was well equipped, everything we needed and more. Great advice on places to visit and things to see. Emily was fantastic, very knowledgeable and well informed on the area. She provided us with a book with all her suggestions of things to do and places to go. She was very helpful, open and accommodating. Could not have asked for a better host.
