Our guide Greg was outstanding. Had so much fun. Entire 2 hour trip was awesome. If you want fun, challenges and great hot chocolate with chocolate chip cookies this is the place for you. Will bring my wife and five kids back in two days.

It was such a great tour! Especially since they pick you up at your hotel promptly at the time they said they would! Our group was pretty big but the tour guide GREGG HAGGEN did an amazing job! He really let us get a feel for the snow mobiles, and was very cautious of those going slow! The trails he took you on were just so great! Being from Miami, it's nice to see snow once in a while! The tour also provided clothing incase you didn't have! It's about a 2-3 hour tour with a nice stop for hot cocoa and cookies! Overall: GREAT EXPERIENCE! To Gregg and the team: JOB WELL DONE!

We took a two hour tour over Thanksgiving weekend with Greg. It was a wonderful and breath taking experience. The views were absolutely beautiful. Greg picked us up at our hotel, provided us with the proper equipment, and dropped us back off at our hotel. He was professional, funny, and genuinely wanted us to have a great time. During part of the tour, there was a course where we could take laps around a "track". Greg took each of our boys (8 & 6) on his snowmobile so they could get the experience of driving a few laps themselves. I highly recommend this tour and company. My husband and I talked about this becoming a yearly event. Thank you Vail Valley Tours for a great experience.

Professional folks and just an all round fun experience. If you want to do something other than skiing in Vail, surely do this!
