I had some time to burn while visiting CO so I booked this tour. I wanted to see the mountains but I'm definitely not outdoorsy- this was a great way to see beautiful mountain scenery without having to actually hike :) Our guide was Dylan and he was friendly and informative. I definitely enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone pressed for time or who would be content with a couple of short walks to see the views.

We loved this excursion! Our guide, Jed, was such a genuinely nice person who was very knowledgeable about the area and nature. We felt safe in his care as we traveled into the Rockies and experienced the twists and turns of the the ride up! We learned many things about the history of Denver, indigenous species of animals and trees and many, many other things. The write-up describing this tour is exactly what we expected - we did not need to be Olympic athletes to enjoy a mild walk through some of the most picturesque views of the area. We will definitely come back and enjoy another tour from this company when in Denver again. Highly recommend.

Have to say that we loved our guide, Aaron. He was very informative. I enjoyed learning about the bison, aspen trees, forest floor, and all of the other information that he provided. He also gave us information about local restaurants and activities in the area. My daughter, age 16, also really enjoyed the tour and would probably have memories of very different things that he spoke of! The tour itself was the perfect length of time, and for us it was a great way to start our Colorado adventure. The views were beautiful.

Hi there, thanks for leaving us a review of your experience with Aaron! We're so happy to hear that you liked the tour length and educational info your guide shared. He's one of our best! We hope you'll come back to visit us again soon.
