Jason gave a great tour of the Rockies. The playlist he created was truly inspired. He had great advice and tons of knowledge about the area.

If you are thinking about renting a car and doing this on your own because of the price - be aware that there are wait times for individuals to get into the park (and time is money on vacation) and there are tolls and fees you may not expect on the drive. Also, the driver will miss out on spectacular views!

It was truly worth the time and money to take this tour.

Gary was probably the best tour guide I've ever had!! He was very informative and has a good sense of humor. You can literally ask him anything and he will most likely know the answer to your question. 10/10 experience and would recommend doing this tour trip no matter who you are traveling with!

Went with Gary (or “Bear”) to the Winter tour of Rocky Mountains & Estes Park. Gary was very nice and provided a great tour and stopped for us to shop, eat and take plenty of photography. He was a lifelong Denver, CO area resident so he told us all about what Estes Park was like growing up and what all the areas are like. Saw many wildlife and even saw some snow at Bear Lake! One of the best parts of my time in Colorado.

The tour of Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park was much better than I expected! I learned about the geology of the park, it's resident wildlife, rivers and creeks from our tour guide Jason, a Colorado native. He was very patient answering questions and making sure everyone was comfortable. We were picked up on time and stopped at all the places promised. I can easily recommend this adventure!

Our tour guide Ben did an amazing job. He was always early and making sure everyone had everything they needed. He was very knowledgeable about everything Denver and had an answer for every question. He always had something interesting to point out or share. He went above and beyond to be helpful and make sure everyone enjoyed themselves. He is very kind and genuine which made for a great tour guide.

WOW!! Breath-taking views!! Jason, our tour guide, was awesome and made it seem like we were just hanging out and not on a stuffy tour. Would HIGHLY recommend.

The company should wrap their vans with Jason’s face! Lol. He was really knowledgeable, friendly, and a safe driver.

Our tour guide, Jason, was excellent. He was friendly, very informative, and gave us a great tour. Even though the weather didn’t seem perfect, he assured us of a great day to look forward to. And he was right, it was great! I’d recommend Jason as your tour guide.

Bernard led us on an incredible day through Estes Park and on into the Rocky Mountain national Park. We even got to see a moose! He was such a knowledgeable guide and great driver. He connected with our small group so well and we all enjoyed the day so much!

Great tour being only a group of 10 (14 max). Tour guide Jason was fabulous. He knew where all of the great sight seeing stops were located and also knew exactly where to get the best food for lunch. Highly recommend this tour.
