Thank you Aaron with Aspire

Our guide was Aaron. He was very friendly and knowledgeable, always accommodating and caring. I learned a lot about the landscape and wildlife and history of the park. The best part was using all the senses to explore the environment. I would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys the outdoors and wants a fun day in nature!

Great experience

Aaron was an amazing guide! He was extremely knowledgeable but even more importantly entertaining! This was a great way to get a taste of RMNP without renting a car.

A Must-See!

This tour was definitely a highlight of my short weekend trip to Denver..I am so glad I decided to do this tour. Communication with Aspire Tours ahead of time was quick and easy, and our guide Ty was top-notch! He gave lots of interesting information about Colorado history and the various ecosystems we encountered on our trip. He also made sure we were adequately hydrated and periodically checked on everyone to make sure they were feeling good and no altitude sickness. The hike was perfect in terms of difficulty level and pace. We had plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery and take photos. This tour takes the guesswork out of visiting the Rockies, especially if you are on a time constraint. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to enhance their Colorado experience.

Pictures don't do justice!

From start to finish, this trip was an incredible journey! Jed, like Jedi but without the i (inside joke), was the best guide! His knowledge of the Denver area, the Rocky Mountains, and the hike itself were amazing. The hike was easily the most incredible hike I’ve ever had. The views, far exceeded our expectations, and our expectations were high. I couldn’t recommend this trip enough! Do it, you won’t regret it!

Terrific Day in the Mountains

A must-do if you are remotely interested in hiking, and that goes for for locals and Colorado visitors alike. Ryan was a phenomenal, passionate tour guide. He's not only intelligent about the area, but had a fun sense of humor. His guidance ensured I got to experience an especially scenic trail, filled with fun facts and stories about the individual mountains, the wildlife/birds, and the plants/nature along the way. If I'd of ventured to Rocky Mtn National park and tried to find my way solo, I'd likely of missed out on the extra-amazing photo opps, and my brain definitely would have missed out on learning dozens of fun facts about the area I just hiked through. The pickup/dropoff from downtown Denver was convenient as well.

Excellent experience and views!

Our guide Clyde was so knowledgeable about tips for adjusting to the high altitude, flora and fauna of the area, other areas to visit, and places to eat. He showed us incredible spots around several lakes, and we even spotted elk! Clyde was prepared with Yeti traps for each of us as it had just snowed the day before, also with chains/sand for icy driving conditions. And I loved my lunch that catered to my dietary restrictions!

Fantastic Rocky Mountain trip!

We went on the full day hiking trip to the Rocky Mountain national park and had a fantastic time! We felt well prepared based on the information we’d been given. Paul Kullman was an amazing guide! We saw beautiful views, had such a fun day, and we felt in good hands the whole day. We spotted elk and birds. Paul was incredibly knowledgeable and we learnt so much. It was our first time in the Rockies so we appreciated how convenient the trip was. We would definitely recommend this trip!
