      Great Tour
      We had a great tour with Brian, he was very informative and we enjoyed our time with him. I would recommend this to anyone looking to see some of the surrounding Denver area.

      Amazing tour of Denver!
      This tour was amazing and I would highly recommend it! Our tour guide, Ernie was so genuine, friendly and extremely knowledgeable! He taught us everything about the history of the places we went and also had a vast knowledge of wildlife and nature we encountered! He provided waters for the group and was very interactive and funny!

      Incredible landscapes
      The day was lovely and the two places were awesome. Pikes peak was my favorite, it’s absolutely gorgeous 🙌🏼🏔️🐐🦌☀️🌄 On the other hand our tourist guide, Bryan, was incredible 🙌🏼 This tour is totally recommended.

      A perfect trifecta
      One would think the natural and majestic scenery on a beautiful sunny day would speak for itself, but not when your guide is Ernie. He gave the scenery context and details to complete the picture. Thank you, Ernie, for wrapping up my 5 days in Denver with the perfect trifecta.

      Worth your day
      We had a great day. Jeff, our guide was positive and very knowledgeable about the entire area. You spend some time in the van to get to the sites, and he knew about all of the towns we went through, and points of interest along the way. You can rent a car, but it's so much nicer to relax and enjoy the ride. I would also never attempt to drive up to Pike's Peak. You can tell Jeff had done this a lot. We stopped at Garden of the Gods, Balancing Rock, Manitou Springs, and Pike's Peak. I saw other tours include lunch, but I really liked having time in Manitou Springs to eat where we pleased. We spent just enough time at each place, without feeling rushed. When Jeff wasn't pointing sites out, his playlist is 10/10

      Awesome!
      Ernie was awesome!!! Highly recommend having him as your guide if you can. We were able to see so much in just about 4 hours. The views were incredible and Ernie was so educated on every site as well as the various sites we passed by in the van. It was the perfect way to end our trip to Denver.

      Not for wimps
      The tour itself and the guide were fantastic. The sights were breathtaking HOWEVER I couldn’t handle the altitude. I’m in my 70’s and in fairly good shape. Also a younger person got altitude sickness. My wife in her 70’s was fine. No reflection on the tour or guIde maybe take something before you go for the altitude.

    The View of the mountains were so majestic. The Sceneries were spectacular, and ride to the mountains were enjoyable & relaxing. Our hearts lifted with joy as we take in the beauty of God’s creation. Our tour guide, we called uncle Denny was the best. He was knowledgeable of the history of Colorado and the parks we went to. You can tell how enthusiastic and passionate he was as he described and introduced us to the beautiful sceneries around us. We felt safe with his driving skills. He made it fun and engaging.He was friendly and personable. He did above and beyond of his job to make our experience the most memorable one ever. The service was 10 out of 10 from start to finish. We had a wonderful time. It was more than what we expected. We highly recommend “Explorer Tour”, and tour with uncle Denny. The best service ever!!!

    Michelle was an exceptional guide through the Rocky Mountain National Park. She was so knowledgeable, humorous, well-organized and provided such a memorable tour. She considered all tour members needs and engaged with each one of us. We saw many animals, beautiful sites and captured amazing pictures. We highly recommend this tour...especially with Michelle.

    Overall sightseeing stops were terrific. Our guide was friendly and kind. The mini-bus however didn't have a working microphone, which made it difficult to hear our guide esp. over the noise of the air conditioner. This was a bummer. When the air was turned down, it got uncomfortably hot. Otherwise, our tour was great and lunch sandwich was excellent.

    Thanks very much for your balanced and fair review. I’m glad you liked the sights, lunch, and your tour guide. It’s something we’ve worked hard on and we’re pleased our efforts resonated with you. I also want to apologize for the inconvenience the voice amplifier broke down on the second part of the tour. We have no control over the brake downs, but we will try our best to make sure it doesn't happen again. Thank you for your feedback and criticisms. We’ve taken your thoughts to heart and we’re planning on making some internal changes based on your recommendations. I appreciate your kind words and professional demeanor.

    Our tour guide Jim was great. Although the park was crowded and we didn’t see many animals, Jim kept us entertained and was very flexible. He always made sure we were comfortable on the trip and had enough water. The sandwiches were tasty.

    This tour was not a good price value.

    The fact that we did not get to see one of the advertised stop due to road closure falls directly on the owner of the company!

    Our guide Denny was very personable, but if he spent as much time giving the history of Colorado and Denver to the group instead of talking all about himself the tour would have Ben. Much better , I can’t tell you how manny times he told the group he played semi pro football!

    Then to top it off to wast time so we would not get back to early , he took us on a tour of the neighborhood he grew up in !

    The favorite part of the tour was the splendid scenery of the Rocky Mountains. Our driver and tour guide, Jim was great…very knowledgeable and personable as well as a good driver. When we reached the top of the mountain, we were hit by sleet and snow, but Jim got us safely down the mountain.

    We recommend this tour. A great way to see the Denver area and enjoy the Rocky National Park.

    Tour was safe and we got to see everything we were supposed to see in a safe and timely manner. Seemed overpriced for $200 there was nothing special about the tour other than a nice comfortable van ride and turkey lunch as promised.
    Some information given by the driver seemed questionable and irrelevant compared to similar tours we have taken in other cities.

    The driver was excellent and we had a great time. He knew so much information and was really friendly and helpful. The only negative was the trip said it included the continental divide and all we did was see mountains far away that were part of the divide. Not the same thing. Would still take other trips with this company and with this driver.

    Dear Donna, Thank you for such a great review. We are happy to hear that you liked the trip. In regards to the continental divide check again the description please we don't advertise the continental divide maybe you saw it on other listings from a different company, but then reserved a trip with us. Keep in mind there several local companies advertise on Viator/TripAdvisor. Anyway, thank you again for choosing Explorer Tours!
