    This was the way to see the park. Excellent views while riding in a comfortable van. Rico, our guide, was highly knowledgeable, personable, and professional. He expertly led us to incredible views and many wildlife sightings. This included: moose, elk, mule deer, coyotes, marmot, eagle and osprey! We even saw a moose chasing coyotes away. Rico made several stops which allowed us better photos, short walks, and to experience the drop in temperature. I’d very much like to return to take this tour again, as well as others that they offer. Highly recommend

    Zach was our tour guide. He was very informative. We had a great tour to the Gardens of the Gods and Pikes Peak. Thanks, Zach!

    I booked a tour for my 1st time in Colorado for the day after I'd arrived. Lesson learned because I should have settled a couple of days before doing a tour where Pikes peak is more than 14,000 ft height...elevation sickness is really a thing.

    Regardless, our tour guide that day was Gentry and she was super friendly and very knowledgeable. Her enthusiasm to show people parts of Colorado is contagious and I had a wonderful day with her.

    I really recommend this tour...if you're not used to elevation and altitude pressure, let your body adapt for 48 hours before doing it though :)

    Cowboy Frank was a great tour guide! He was fun, knowledgeable, and engaging. He kept us on schedule and managed to cover a lot of ground for us. I don’t think we would have saw as much if we went alone.

    Looking for a casual hike that doesn’t eat up your whole day? This is it. We met up at a cafe then 30 min drive to the mountains. 1.5 - 2hr hike depending on pace. 30 min drive back. Andrew was our guide. He was friendly and shared some nice facts along the way.

    Absolutely an amazing trip! Captain Curt was so knowledgeable and really added a lot of side-bar information and tidbits to the tour. We were lucky enough to see both Moose and Elk along the way. We saw an elusive bull moose which was such a treat! Timely and efficient - he kept us moving as to not miss a single thing! Highly recommend this tour!

    Sarah was a really great guide. She was so knowledgeable about the park and surrounding environment. She answered all of my questions and was great with children.

    If I had driven to Breckenridge myself, as originally planned, I would've missed out on all the stories, background and spectacular sights, experiences and stops along the way.

    Book this tour!! Everything was amazing, it was a full day of knowledge, exploration, and adventure. Our tour guide, Ernie, made everyone feel very comfortable and welcome. He was so knowledgeable on everything Denver especially the National Park, we were privileged to be in his company!

    Great experience and well thought-through trip. Comfortable ride into Idaho springs (2 guides/2 cars for our group of 7) with enjoyable commentary on the sights we passed. The hike is not long at all, less than a mile each way, but it is uphill, on the snow (spikes needed) and the altitude is palpable therefore a basic fitness level is required. Part of our group, unfortunately, underestimated their abilities - the guides handled the situation well and with safety of everyone in mind, while not taking away from the enjoyment and experience for the others. The hike itself is picturesque and the views once in the glacier great - but difficult to photograph, the photos really don't do this trip justice. The thermal pools afterwards are super relaxing, and the pizza lunch was delicious.

    This was one of the best days ever
    Everyone should have an opportunity to take this tour
    And you need to take it with Chris
    He was so accommodating
    He had a vast knowledge of Denver and the surrounding area
    As a matter of fact he was quite knowledgeable about many things which we really enjoyed
    The view from over 14,000 feet was breathtaking and truly God made
    I cannot wait to visit again
