      Beautiful Views with Guide Jason
      We were very impressed with this tour! Our guide Jason was friendly, knowledgeable, and a safe driver. He helped us get the best photos and had a ton of knowledge to share about the area that we never would have known.

      My sister and I really enjoyed our day's outing! Fantastic scenery and a fun group in a small van. Our guide, Jason, was an excellent driver and guide. I would recommend this tour to family and friends.

      Had a fantastic time!
      As a visitor to the USA that can't drive a tour like this was my best chance at seeing this incredible natural scenery, so I'm glad our group had someone as knowledgeable and funny as Jason as our guide, he really went all out on making sure the tour never had a dull moment!

    This was our first visit to Denver from Hawaii and Las Vegas and Mason made the tour memorable with not only his knowledge but his humor. His patience with the group of four which varied by age was appreciated. He always checked to ensure we were hydrated with the elevation and was engaging throughout the tour.

    Should we return to Denver, we will definitely take in the longer tours.

    It is really nice to have someone who really enjoys what they do. Even "Alejandro".. a Mason joke.

    Red Rocks was the highlight of the tour. We had a great time reading the lists of concerts that had been held over the years. The walk down to the amphitheater and then seeing the actual venue was breathtaking. The drive thru the foothills was interesting and our stop in Golden for lunch was a good choice. Very busy downtown with lots of shops and choices of where to eat. Mason was an excellent tour guide and driver. We had a good day. Thanks, Dona & JP

    What an incredible experience the Denver foothills and Golden, Colorado tour was today!! Mason was our driver and guide. He picked us up near Union Station right on time. We headed to Red Rocks, saw the Buffalo at Genesee Park/Lookout Mountain, went to Buffalo Bills grave then took the Lariat Loop to Golden where we had a great lunch at Old Capitol Grill & Smokehouse. Each stop was just enough time to check out the sights and get a glimpse of what Colorado looks like outside of Denver without having to rent a car.
    The 12 person van was comfortable and Mason was a great guide. He was safe, very informative and fun!
    We would highly recommend!
    And Go Bills!!

    Gator was a dope tour guide who made sure each of us had a great experience. He played the best music for the ride and it felt like he really cared that we had a good time. Will definitely recommend this tour with this guide to anyone headed this way!

    We had an awesome time in our tour. Our tour guide Jason was awesome and very knowledgeable. We all felt like we were riding in a bus with someone we knew for a long time. That was how cool of a guy Jason is. This was my families first time in Denver and this tour was awesome. Thanks for a great tour!

    What an amazing experience! Our tour guide Bernard was so incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, and funny, the four hours just flew by! The places we stopped at were just gorgeous - the Red Rocks amphitheater was definitely the highlight. The van was clean & comfortable, and cold water was provided. Would definitely recommend this tour.

    Yazz was a great tour guide. We had a small group on a rather rainy, overcast day. We first stopped at the amphitheater and we had ample time to explore. Since the day wasn't great for viewing he suggested driving through Clear Creek Canyon and it was perfect! The mist and overcast skies made it very beautiful. On to Golden ,which was such a quaint town. It was a great time and he let us off at Coors Field and we were able to get in to the game for $1. Overall I would highly recommend this tour!
    Thanks for a great time

    Absolutely enjoyed our tour with Mason. Our group of 8 was picked up at our downtown Denver hotel in a Mercedes mini bus. During our tour, Mason was great at pointing out highlights and sharing his knowledge of the Denver area and all the stops we made. We were dropped off and picked up directly in front of our tour stops, we never had to wait. The tour is great for getting out of Denver and seeing the surrounding areas. I would recommend this tour for small groups. It was nice to have our own mini bus with just our group. We really had a great tour.

    Yazz was an excellent tour guide, very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating for special requests. Four hours was a good length to see the sights and decide which we wanted to go back and explore more extensively. Large Mercedes van was very comfortable, and obviously well cared for. Will definitely consider ilimo for future adventures.

    We had our original tour get canceled by this vendor at the last minute and had to scramble to find another option. They contacted us within 24 hours, but we were frustrated that it was due to not enough people signing up. No other options were available for the day we needed. It sucked!
