We rented a Jeep from Alex for a week and had an outstanding experience. Pick up and drop off could not have been easier and the vehicle was in phenomenal condition. Whenever we return to Montana we will be renting from them again!

Such a great experience from start to finish. Easy paperwork process. Alex greeted me with a smile and an awesome/clean Jeep just a few steps outside of the airport. I could text or call with any questions and they promptly replied. Returning it was just as easy. I look forward to returning to Montana and using Rocky Mountain Expeditions again!

Alex and his team at Rocky Mtn Expeditions were superb. The rental, pick up and delivery process were easy (curbside service at the airport). The Jeep was in great condition, no issues. Most importantly, Alex was always available to answer specific questions about the vehicle or general questions about travel in Montana. I enjoyed the experience and would certainly work Rocky Mtn Expeditions again!

My wife and I cannot recommend Rocky Mountain Expeditions enough! Alex was quick to respond to our request to rent a Jeep, and was more than willing to work with our flight schedules for drop off and pick up at our hotel, going so far as to do a pick up at 9:00 at night. The process was easy, the Jeep was in great shape and was a joy to use. Alex could not have been nicer, willing to give us suggestions for sight seeing and fun trails to take the Jeep on. We HIGHLY recommend Rocky Mountain Adventures to anyone who makes their way to Bozeman and is looking for some Jeep adventures. We WILL be contacting Alex again for our next visit to Montana. Thanks Alex for helping make our vacation one we won't soon forget!

Alex could not have been nicer. Professional and personable. Raining when we arrived...he had umbrellas. We needed to ship things back, he sent addresses. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

This is how costumer service is supposed to be. The equipment was top-notch as well. For getting around in the mountains, Jeep Unlimited is the way to go.

My mom and I rented a Jeep from RME for a trip to Yellowstone and our experience could not have been better! We got into Bozeman on a late flight and Alex, the owner, was waiting at the curb for us with a really nice new Jeep. The car worked perfectly, it was easy to communicate with the company, and it was over all the best rental car experience I’ve ever had.

We rented a car from Rocky Mountain Expeditions which they brought directly to us at our cabin because we arrived at the airport very late and did want to drive! It couldn't have been easier. They offered to either pick up or meet us at departures at the airport. Again, they could not have made it easier for us. Alex was very friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend and definitely use them again!

I highly recommend this outfit. Alex dropped off the Jeep, and picked it up where we needed him too. Paperwork was a breeze, and the Jeep was clean and in great shape! It was so fun during our trip home to take it all over western Montana. Thanks so much for a great ride!

Excellent. Very professional and accommodating. Curb-side service at the airport is a huge help. I have rented from RME for the last two years and will continue to do so. They are the only group I rent with in Montana. EC
