We wanted to go up Pikes Peak without having to drive. Found the Cog train. But, it was sold out for the day we could go. Searched for another tour and found Manitou Springs Adventures. We were so thankful that the train was sold out!! What an awesome trip. Jimmy was our guide. He even picked us up at our hotel. He was very nice and knowledgeable. We had a private trip in a jeep. He had water and snacks for us. We were allowed to stop at several places and take pictures. (Cog does not stop) Once at the top, he bought us donuts! And we were allowed to stay as long as it took to see everything and take as many pictures as we wanted. Jimmy even took pictures of all of us. On the way down, we were again allowed to stop and take more pictures. All in all, the trip was wonderful! My advice is to skip the Cog altogether and book with Manitou Springs Adventures! You will not regret it. I gave it 5 stars because that's as high as it gets. Would rate higher if I could. I can not say enough good things about the trip. If I ever go back, I will definitely choose them again. Again........ Skip the Cog and book M S Adventures!
