    We enjoyed the trip from beginning to end: the history, the geology, and the stops provided. Excellent guide! Money well spent. You don't have worry about obtaining a timed entry to the park or keeping your eyes on the road while driving. There is walking just not strenuous hiking. Thanks Jeff for being a knowledgeable guide.

    The waterfall and reaching the summit were just a few of the highlights out of many. The tour guide Aaron was a walking book of knowledge. Aaron made it easy to get to know the people you were on tour with which made it that much more fun.

    I took this your with my two teenage daughters. We had an amazing time. Our tour guide Nick was full of historical and geographical knowledge and fun stories. The tour van was comfortable and it was a nice picnic lunch. Highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to spend the day in the Rockie National park. Leave the driving and parking to someone else.

    This was an excellent trip, and I would quickly sign up to do it again. We saw such majesty in the park! Our guide, Aaron, was absolutely the BEST! He worked so hard to make the day splendid, which it was. I have traveled all over the world, and Aaron was one of the best tour guides I’ve ever had. All of our needs were met, really anticipated before we asked. The picnic lunch was delicious and in a splendid part of the park. Aaron was thoroughly knowledgeable about all things in the park and about Colorado. He gave us excellent recommendations for other places to visit in the Denver area, and a list of restaurants. The day was perfect. I was sad when the tour was over. I highly recommend this tour and this company, and you really want to ask for Aaron as your guide. It’s a day I will long remember for its beauty, fun, history, knowledge, and good people.
