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!
