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.
