“We felt like royalty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We too are "team Joann" on this one. We booked our tour quite a while ago and felt pretty regal that we had the whole bus to ourselves (and Joann of course). She took us on the Grand Lake Safari, where you basically see ALL of Trail Ridge Road, without any of the driving on your own. Joann is a walking history lesson on all things RMNP...she's a retired college professor and it's obvious she was and is a teacher by trade. We had so much fun with her! This is an excellent way to see and learn about RMNP!

“Journey to the Top bus tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My wife and I took this tour with Joann and we had a very good experience. RMNA was kind enough to keep the tour on, even though it was for just the two of us. Our guide, Joann, was wonderful and explained a lot of things to us which make our subsequent days in the park that much nicer. She was very flexible, allowed us to linger longer at some parts, gave us good pointers as to what to look for, taught us a lot about the flora in the park. All in all, I highly recommend this service, even for those who have a car and wish to travel the park themselves.

“RMNP Seminars for Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Our granddaughter (age 9) just finished five of the Youth and Family Field Seminars in the park. They included GPS tracking, photo journaling, hiking, etc. She loved these seminars and plans to take more next summer. We were impressed with the organization and execution of these seminars. The young people who conducted the seminars did a wonderful job. I would highly recommend these seminars!

“Journey to the Top tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

My family and I took the Journey to the Top tour with Joann from RMNA. We really enjoyed it and had a good time! Joann was very interesting to talk to and very well informed. Even if you have already driven Trail Ridge Road, the tour is worth it because you get a lot of additional information and notice things you did not notice on the rush through. She even allowed us a couple extra minutes to try and snap photos of an animal we had been hunting high and low for. And she was very good about taking family pictures of us along the route. Make sure to take a jacket...it's a little chilly at the top!

“Be Sure To Include "Journey to the Top" in your plans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

I took this tour along with my husband and 16 year old nephew in June. We agreed it was the best 6 hours of our Colorado vacation. Our guide was David Adams and along with Rachel we experenced the beauty and the history of the Rockies along Trail Ridge Road. The bus ride was comfortable with many stops along the way. A wonderful tour, one not to be missed.
