    Our guide, Gentry, was outstanding. Extremely knowledgeable, energetic and passionate about what she does. She strategized our tour so that we got to see and do the most at the best time. The views of the Rockies are majestic & pictures just don’t do it justice. We saw prairie dogs, marmot, mule deer, 45 elk on the tundra & a Moose & her baby on the way out. Trip was well organized, lunch was just ok, time at each location was good. We had a 14 passenger van, and Gentry had a microphone so all could hear. I was fortunate to sit up front, so that added to my overall experience. I can imagine that one’s enjoyment of the park can correspond to the weather, we happened to have sunshine and could see for miles. As a solo traveler this was for sure the way to go (no need to rent a car, pay for gas, park entry fee & required entry reservation). So glad I did this.

    Bernard was on time, friendly and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and the places we visited on the tour. We got to see a lot of wildlife and his recommendations for places to eat in Manitou Springs were much appreciated! I signed up as a solo traveler but the small group feel was perfect. We spent just enough time in all the places on the itinerary.

    It was a nice ride to get up in the mountains. The trip made frequent stops for short hikes, viewpoints and stops in a couple small mountain towns. Our guide Will was friendly and very knowledgeable.

    The half day doesn't allow for long, strenuous hikes due to time restraints so next time I would do the full day tour

    Steve was very informative and funny too! He offered to take pictures :) The tour was great. Red Rock was a bit rushed just because there was a scheduled concert that evening and it closed to non -concert attendees 20 minutes after we arrived. Each of the stops had beautiful scenery. I highly recommend it for a 4- hour tour.

    Our tour guide was Gentry, she was awesome! She was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of facts about Denver, Boulder, and the Rocky Mountain National Park. There was rain in the forecast and she picked out a great hike with waterfalls and trees to prepare for that. Overall we would highly recommend!

    This tour is a fantastic way to see the Rockies! Our guide, Alex, showed us so many incredible parts of the park. He adapted quickly after snowfall the night before closed a main road and took us to places we wouldn't have gotten to see otherwise. He clearly loves the park and is a wonderful guide.

    Can't say enough nice things about Devon and the tour. Knowledgeable, adaptable, and an excellent photographer. My family booked this tour on our first full day in RMNP and it gave us wonderful perspective on the park for the day, and for the rest of our trip. Highly recommended.

    This entire trip was breathtaking. The first stop at Garden of the Gods Park was more than we expected and our expectations were very high. Our guide, Jason, gave us a history of the Park both from its geological formation and how it became the park it is today. We had plenty of time to wander the area, see wildlife and climb over a few rocks. We watched locals scaling the rocks and even saw a group of children involved in a climbing camp. That was just the beginning of the day. Jason took us very carefully up the mountain to Pikes Peak. We were both stunned by the heights and the stunning views. The new visitors center was a pleasant surprise and we enjoyed the gift shop and the views they showcased. Jason was on the lookout for local wildlife and slowed to a crawl when the mountain sheep showed up coming down the mountain. Thank You so much for a very exciting and excellent day. Dona & JP

    Scott was such a good guide. He was caring, interested and inclusive. His conversation was infused with history, geography, anecdotes, little known facts and humour all rolled into comfortable conversation. I enjoyed every minute of the four hour tour and would highly recommend it to everyone who comes Denver way!

    Wow!!! I was looking for a family friendly tour of Rocky Mountain National Park, and thanks to Aspire tours and our guide Kyle H our trip was spectacular!! Aspire had excellent customer service, and the convenience of pick up in Denver coming from the east coast was wonderful. Our guide Kyle was simply fantastic, he was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun, and he customized our two days perfectly for our family. We loved the iconic Trail Ridge Road experience, the kids smiles as they lept over the Colorado River at the source were priceless, and the hike to Dream Lake was phenomenal. Thank you Aspire and Kyle for a wonderful tour in this majestic place!

    Such a fun tour!! Kyle took us to some off the beaten path local breweries we wouldn’t have found otherwise. He gave us facts about Colorado and we got to see some beautiful scenery on the drive as well. 10/10 would recommend!

    Mike was an amazing tour guide! He was very knowledgeable but not overwhelming. He made the entire experience very enjoyable. The views were breathtaking!

    Tips for future travelers:: bring layers (pants, jacket, etc.) It gets very cold up top.

    This was me and boyfriend’s first hike in Colorado. We were worried about altitude sickness, but our tour guide, Trey, was amazing. He made sure to give us some tips to avoid getting sick and made sure we all got plenty of breaks throughout the hike. He also took great photos of everyone along the trail. The springs and pool were a great way to relax after hiking. I just recommend bringing sandals as well, unless you’re okay walking barefoot throughout the building (would walk over areas where shoed people also walk). We ended the day with an amazing lunch before heading back to Denver. Overall, me and my boyfriend had an unforgettable experience. We are so thankful to have had Trey’s help. He is very knowledgeable and overall a really nice guy! Would definitely recommend this adventure!!

    A beautiful trip with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Beautiful vistas on a couple of short hikes. A bit of a drive from Denver but worth it.
