WILL THERE BE OTHER GUESTS IN THE VEHICLE ON OUR TOUR?

Yes! Our experience is the more the merrier! However, on a serious note, providing off-road access to the pristine natural beauty of the Deschutes River and National Forest is a privilege that Bend Jeep® Tours doesn't take lightly. Our goal is to fill every Jeep® in order to "tread lightly" and lessen our carbon footprint.

ARE YOUR TOURS REALLY "OFF-ROAD?"

Yes! Our tours are on pavement until we reach our "off-road" trail destinations. So come prepared for a little dust and a few bumps as we take you to see what lies at the "Top of the World."


WHAT TYPE OF CLOTHING SHOULD WE BRING OR WEAR?

Although you wouldn't know it from all the water and trees, Bend is actually part of Central Oregon's high desert region. You are encouraged to dress in layers (including a jacket for colder days as well as the morning and evening tours), wear a hat and use sunscreen. You should also wear comfortable walking shoes and DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!


ARE THERE RESTROOMS ON THE TOURS?

There are two U.S. Forest restrooms along the route. However, we highly recommend using the restroom prior to your tour departure. 


DO WE DO ANY HIKING ON YOUR TOURS?

Although you will discover many pristine areas to hike in the future, because the mission of Bend Jeep® Tours is to provide equal access to the natural beauty within the U.S. Forest, out of vehicle activity is limited to exiting the Jeep® for nearby photographic opportunities. 


WHAT IF IT RAINS?

Rain or shine, our Jeep® tours go on, so make sure you dress accordingly! After all, rain makes for beautiful rainbows and flowing waterfalls. However, safety is our first priority. In the event of unsafe conditions or unique weather, Bend Jeep® Tours reserves the right to alter, modify, or cancel any tours. 


SHOULD I TIP MY TOUR GUIDE AND IF SO, HOW MUCH?

If you feel your guide delivered an exceptional tour, they will gladly accept tips. We can add the gratuity to your credit card or you can tip your tour guide directly.



CAN WE BRING OUR OWN MEALS AND EAT IN THE JEEP®?

While we do not allow meals or glass containers, we highly encourage plastic bottles of water and snacks for children. As stewards of our National Forests, we must be sure that anything brought in is brought out.


WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO BE A “U.S. FOREST SERVICE PERMITTED COMPANY?”

The Forest Service issues permits for commercial companies to use the various forest trails and land. As a permitted company, Bend Jeep® Tours adheres to U.S. Forest Service regulations which requires insurance, and CPR and first-aid training for all guides. We also limit the number of Jeep® tours allowed on the trails at one time and provide royalty fees to the U.S. Forest Service for the use of public lands.
