CRJT Drivers

CRJT is dedicated to giving our customers the best tour experience possible -- safely, courteously and knowledgeably. And if we drive the road correctly we should rock you back and forth more than bounce up and down.  We don't bounce, we rock... If your tour guide is safe, courteous, knowledgeable and at least a little entertaining we encourage you to leave a tip (20% average).

Glenn Smith 


Glenn Smith and his wife Patsy own Crystal River Jeep Tours. Born in Golden, Colorado he is native to the mountains. Smitty learned how to drive on mountain roads and has been driving Jeep tours since 2006. Smitty restores the antique Jeeps we use. He retired in 2004 with 24 years of US Government service, now he's working on his next career. Smittys goal is to keep the creditors from the door, and if he can restore another Jeep in the process it's been a good year.

Starting the 2016 season, Smitty will be our back-up tour guide.

Patsy Smith

Although not a driver Patsy is the backbone of the CRJT operation. Answering the phone, taking reservations, and keeping the books. She keeps us on the straight and narrow.
