Tour guide Jared took us on a snow hike up the rockies this past March 2015 while in my honeymoon. What an experience! Beautiful frozen lakes, breathtaking sites and all the information and history you desire. You won't regret taking a tour up the rockies with "Yellow Wood Guiding" :-)

We went on a tour with Jared last week in the RMNP. He is simply fantastic! He knows so much about the wild life, the plants, the history of the place! We highly recommend Yellow Wood Guiding private tours!

Jared was AWESOME! Not only did he know everything about anything in the park, but he gave us handful of spots to check out on our own too!! I WILL definitely recommend yellow wood and specifically Jared to my friends! Very cool!

My husband and I had a wonderful tour with Jared this week. He picked us up at our accommodation at 5.30 a.m. And within minutes we were watching a couple of coyotes scouting the area. That was just the beginning of several wildlife sightings throughout the tour. Jared was considerate of our interests and made sure he included everything we... More

It is not surprising that Jared has so many 5/5 star ratings. It was clear he dynamically adjusted the 4 hour safari we went on to ensure it was an exact fit for what we wanted to see and learn about. He is not only extremely knowledgable as a naturalist, his understanding of the animal patterns ensures spectacular views that... More

Jared was exceptionally instructive, knowledgeable, and he loves his work. He picked us up in his very comfortable SUV at our condo at 5:15 am. for a sunrise experience at Sprague Lake. It was every bit worth the early wake up call! Trust your guide, as they say. He knows the ecology of the Park, and he's knowledgeable about plants,... More

Being for the first time in USA and visiting the Rocky Mountains in wintertime, my husband wanted to do a snowshoeingtrip. Both of us never went snowshoeing before. We booked this guided tour online not knowing what to expect. Jared is a wonderful guide who really holds into account what you want and what you are capable to do. We... More

Jared was awesome. He showed us elk, big horn sheep, turkey, and a nesting owl. All this and it was in the winter. He was very knowledgable and had a great way of presenting all the fun fact about the animals and the area. I would highly recommend using Yellow Wood Guilding anytime you are in Estes Park.

Jared is very knowledgeable about many aspects of Rocky Mountain National Park, and made our afternoon delightful. From showing us bear claw marks up an Aspen tree to choosing an excellent site for sunset photography, Jared did it right. He taught me several new photography techniques and is familiar with quite a bit of gear. You won't go wrong by... More

A wonderful experience. Jared was the ideal guide: showed these first-time snowshoers the techniques we needed, chose a fantastic and varied route, and shared his deep knowledge of the trees, geology, and wildlife along the way. He knows RMNP like the back of his hand, and is an engaging person to have a snowy adventure with. I recommend Yellow Wood... More
