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.

Ok, if I have to say more I will rave about our host, Emily. It’s one thing to have a sweet 4x4 ride but not so fun if you don’t know where to take it! Her recommendations and guidance turned our trip from good to great! Pro tip, you’re going to want to record some of the amazing rides. There’s a GoPro mount already in the dash or bring something to attach your cell phone to the windshield looking out. We did a lot of Timelapse’s of our drives which saves storage space and it fun to zoom back through.

Just hard to explain how awesome this trip was. It started with the excellent trip planning from my host, Emily. She put together several itinerary options for our 4 day and 3 night offroad camping adventure. She also put together our meal plan and then bought and packed our food. And picked us up and took us to the airport. Basically she made our trip easy so we could enjoy the fun part!! The jeep was utterly awesome. We were able to offroad to remote campsites that most humans will never see. The stars week amazing. The weather was cold and clear and perfect. The top camper was very comfortable and even when it was 28 degrees we were plenty warm with the extra sleeping bag that Emily through in. My write up doesn't do the experience justice. If you want a mix of thrill seeking akong with comfortable car camping then this is it. I'd highly recommend and we will be coming back! Pro tip...go in the off-season and prepare for the weather and avoid the crowds. We literally had 3 of the best campsites of my life almost completely to ourselves. I'd score it a 10 if I could.

My trip was unbelievable. Everywhere I went people were admiring and asking about the jeep and the pop-up camper tent. The jeep far exceeded my expectations and the staff was amazing.
