“Great Mountain Tour”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

My husband and I had the best afternoon on their off road adventure, (we picked the medium with tower) we went to the top of one of the highest mountains; the view from their tower was amazing. We took some of the best photographs of our vacation from there. Lori in their office was wonderful to deal with. Dave Cosby was our guide, he was awesome. I could not believe how he expertly drove us up roads that no vehicle should ever be able to maneuver. He was a wealth of information about everything we saw in the mountains and the history of Estes Park. This trip is a must to anyone visiting the area. Ask for Dave, you won't be disappointed.

“Super Tour !”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Vacationed in Estes Park at the end of August with husband, daughter and son in law. Being roller coaster fans we went on the Rockin' Roller Coaster Tour. We were not disappointed! Plenty of bumps, hills, speed and bouncing out of seats! We had a wonderful guide , Alex, who gave us some local history when we slowed down for photo ops. A tower at the top of the mountain provided incredible views. Awesome time!!

“Simple-think and plan ahead, you will have fun!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Thank you RMR! Visiting from Michigan, wife and I were touring the mid-west for two weeks. Arrived at RMR to find our reservation was not on file. This was due to electronic error but fortunately wife brought email confirmation. The place was very busy with a number of large group tours in progress but the folks at RMR promised us a great and senic trip, upgraded our package for no-charge, gave us an extra hour in the park, and paid for our park entrance fee even though the reservation concern was not specifically their fault! So-off we went...

Our trip started late afternoon so, thinking ahead, we packed a small cooler and brought along additional clothing just in case the weather changed-and it did! A very nice couple from Kansas City joined us which added to the fun of our excursion so we loaded up the truck and headed for the hills. Obviously to get to the park trail you will be on city roads. The same roads you could tour yourself. But once you turn off onto the park trail the fun begins.

Our guide was very knowledgable about the area, the National Park, nature in general, and kept us informed throughout the tour. He consistently checked to ensure we were safe and comfortable. He also provided advance warning before navigating "rougher" terrain.

We stopped several times to experience breathtaking views, take photo opps, a bio-break, and to have a snack/beverages. Our guide showed us the humming-bird nest, explained the Colorado Aspen colony, and brought our attention to many points of interest throughout the tour and when atop the Viewing Tower.

During our tour the sun went down and the temp dropped quickly. By the time we left the park it was 9:30 PM and the wind was brisk. Our guide was kind enough to drop the other couple off at their hotel before heading back.

So regardless which RMR tour you select, Plan Ahead and you will have fun. Come on-it's an off road adventure so you best prepare to get bounced around a bit regardless if you select Roller Coaster or the Senic trip. Pack a coat/rain gear just in case. Our tour was in early August and it got chilly once the sun went down. You will have a great time if you book a tour with RMR and plan ahead.

FYI: it costs a lot of money to maintain a fleet of Off Road Vehicle's <ORV's> so any SAFE and Educational tour will not be cheap. Don't forget to tip your guide too.

THANKS AGAIN Rocky Mountain Rush!

“Enjoyable tour of the Rocky Mountains”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Rocky Mountain Rush is the attraction that I chose for the day of my wedding. We had the reception in the morning and had the tour right after. The times were really close and we weren't sure if we could make it to Rocky Mountain Rush in time. After talking with them they were kind enough to pick us up at the resort to get out tour started on time and not miss anything!! The adventure provided great views and great information!! Everyone in my group had a blast and felt safe and comfortable. The guides would ask questions about the park/geography to keep everyone interested and involved (and they gave candy for correct answers!!) I highly recommend letting Rocky Mountain Rush drive you through the park as you sit back and enjoy the scenery.

“Awesome even in the rain”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

We recently took a tour with Rocky Mountain Rush, we were there for a business meeting and our company lined up a tour for us. We were hesitant to go on this tour as it was raining and poor visibility. To give you an idea of how much it was raining we went on the tour on 9/11/2013 and as we all know what happened just 24 hours later with the flooding of the Big Thompson, with that said we had a blast, our guides (we chartered 3 vehicles) we awesome and so attentive to our needs whether it was too cold, wet or wanted them to slow down. If you are very adventurous and don't mind getting a little wet or having your feet off of the floor boards most of the time ask for Charlie as he was awesome. We are looking forward to having another tour when the visibility is better as i am sure the views will be breathtaking. With that said even if the weather is cold, rainy or low visibility and your thinking about cancelling dont, i promise you wont be disappointed.
