Great hike, highly recommend!

The hike was great we didn’t have a lot of time so taking this hike with a guide was perfect. Ty was so nice and knowledgeable, we learnt so much and he made it fun for the kids too. Highly recommend!

A great activity for beer lovers

Mike was an excellent guide, taking us to 3 different brewerys around the area that otherwise my husband and I would not have thought to go. Allowed ample time at each stop. Asked for our input on each brewery as to make any tweaks in the future. A fun and relaxing day

Lovely brews and views, all around!

Fun breweries and amazing views. Dylan was a wonderful guide, giving history and showing rock formations we wouldn't have known to seek out otherwise!

Great Tour

Great tour. Whole experience was very enjoyable. Nick was a terrific guide. There was only one other couple on the tour and we hit it off with them. Besides the good beer the “views” were great too. We have been to CO numerous times but Nick knew the back roads and showed us countryside we hadn’t seen before. If we are in CO again we would definitely take another trip with Nick.

I had a great time on this tour. Every brewery we went to had great beers that were paired with amazing views. Phil was our tour guide and he definitely helped make the tour memorable. Transportation is in a small bus/van, water is provided. It's a good idea to go on this tour well-hydrated. Definitely recommend to put on your to-do list if you're visiting Denver.

Definitely Recommend

We enjoyed the beautiful views! It was refreshing to see a different part of Colorado, as we were staying in downtown Denver. Ryan (our tour guide) was so hospitable and informative. We appreciated learning about the culture of the area. It was wonderful sightseeing with such a knowledgeable guide! Definitely recommend this tour!

Fun, informative tour with Paul!

Our tour guide Paul was so friendly, informative and very enthusiastic about all the info he shared we us. He even pulled over for us to view a herd of buffalo and a deer in someone’s driveway! I would recommend this tour to anyone. I especially loved his quiz at the end of the tour to see if we were paying attention! Great tour!

Winter wonderland

Steve was a great tour guide! It was a great little escape on what was looking like a gloomy rainy day. Once we got into the foothills it turned into a winter wonderland! Loved the cute coffee shop and the buffalo burger was tasty as promised.

Stress free tour to see the outskirts of Denver

I was in Denver for a business trip with little time to plan my stay. This tour was perfect for a half day get away to get to know about Denver and its history. Our guide, Kyle, was knowledgeable and helpful. The scenic views are amazing and breathtaking. It was stress free and very enjoyable.

Half day Rocky Mountain experience

24 hr stop over in Denver so looked for a shorter Rockies experience. This trip didn’t disappoint. The four hours flew by and took in some great mountain scenery and spots. Tour guide Elsa was great fun, really knowledgeable, excellent taste in music, and has converted my into a major Aspen (tree) fan 👍 Would recommend. Many thanks. Pete S (UK)

Great tour with a great guide

We loved this excursion! Our guide, Jed, was such a genuinely nice person who was very knowledgeable about the area and nature. We felt safe in his care as we traveled into the Rockies and experienced the twists and turns of the the ride up! We learned many things about the history of Denver, indigenous species of animals and trees and many, many other things. The write-up describing this tour is exactly what we expected - we did not need to be Olympic athletes to enjoy a mild walk through some of the most picturesque views of the area. We will definitely come back and enjoy another tour from this company when in Denver again. Highly recommend.

Overwhelming Mother Nature

This has been an amazing experience. In a trip that takes only 4 hours, we were able to see, enjoy and feel overwhelmed about the wonders of Mother Nature. This experience was unique with the guide of Aaron. He is very well versed about the mountains in Colorado, so kind and made feel great with all the participants. This is a highly recommended tour.

A Great experience -- totally worth it!

From start to finish, this tour was wonderful. Our guide Gentry was very kind and considerate in addition to being extremely knowledgeable about all things geology and meteorology. She knew much about the Rocky Mountains and took us to some excellent sites for photos. This tour was so fun that next time we plan to do the whole day tour! Kudos to Gentry for all her excellent driving down those steep roads; she is a highly competent driver!

Great Experience We Will Always Remember

We absolutely loved our tours. We did the Breckenridge with Michael and loved it so much we booked the rocky mountains. It was totally worth the price and being able to see everything. Michael was so accommodating and enjoyable to hang with. Thank you guys so much for making our trip rememberable!!!

Girls Trip

What a great time!!! Well worth the money. We had Ryan as our tour guide and he was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Haven’t been to Breckinridge in 30 years and it was wonderful. Love the little village vibe. Red Rock was amazing and will return this summer for a concert. Thanks for a great time!

Great Experience

This tour was well worth it. We were very impressed with this tour company, especially our tour guide JED. He was very personable, knowledgeable and professional. He had great stories and was very informative. We felt safe as he navigated and drove our group on this tour. We spent an adequate amount of time at the different places on this tour and never felt rushed. We would definitely use this company again!!
