Traveler Tips

The aspen trees this time of year are not to miss, and make the drive up the mountain amazing.
The van provided a great comfortable way to see all the sights without getting a rental.

Susan_M, May 2023
Cowboy Frank was friendly and knowledgeable. Took the time to give us the best opportunity to see breathtaking views.
Sublime above the snow line
Brett_D, May 2023
Great locations, knowledgeable and informative guide. An additional 10mins in Evergreen would be useful, but did not detract from our enjoyment.
Jolynn_D, May 2023
Cowboy Frank was amazing he was sooo funny and really knowledgeable about the history of Colorado. He really took the time to connect to each of us on the tour!! He took us to all the secret photo spots and took pictures for all of us without hesitation!!! He was amazing!!! Best tour I’ve been on in USA

Amazing tour guide
Hannah_F, May 2023
Our tour guide Kristen was beyond amazing!! Very friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable! At echo lake the clouds were so low that you were only able to see a sliver of the lake but Kristen was able to make it enjoyable and it was still was a great experience! I definitely will be using this company again for future tours!!
Red Rocks is a must see!
Sheilah_L, May 2023
Alex was very knowledgeable and my sister and I had a great time, especially at Red Rocks. Had a bit of a snafu with having to switch the van and not having extra water available, other than that, it was fun!

The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, the views were spectacular. The whole experience was great and next time we are there, we will use your services again
Great city escape!
Alexandra_F, Apr 2023
Alex rocks! We toured with him on a Friday afternoon in April. Beautiful sunny day in a brand new van. First stop was red rocks, sublime was playing that evening and unfortunately we were cut short due to a sound check. All good! Echo lake was beautiful and very snowy, even in April. Dress appropriately and wear appropriate shoes. Don’t be that jerk and listen to meeting times. We had a few on our bus that held us up at stops. Evergreen is super cute little town with food and shops. Great 1/2 day escape of the city with a lot of bang for your buck.

Rene_O, Apr 2023
Who knew it would be 25° with snow in late April but here we are! Our guide did a fantastic job & I highly recommend her. We saw some good wildlife including a bald eagle out in the open- spectacular! She stopped & double backed when we passed the animals which was nice. This would perhaps have been better on a warm sunny day but weather just isn’t predictable.
Very fun! Great tour of...
Ashley_M, Apr 2023

Chrisandra_S, Apr 2023
Our guide was friendly, informative and interesting. I found him to be very engaging and fun. The tour was well timed. A good balance of riding time and out of van time. Scenery was beautiful.
Great service

Spectacular views, a must do
Dulce_B, Mar 2023
Our guide Frank was awesome, Super nice and fun! The views were spectacular, if you are in Denver this is a must do tour. The snow capped mountains were amazing. We made snow angels and stopped at a little quaint town. Saw Elk and bison. Definitely a must do for a very reasonable price. Highly recommend.

Amazing Experience! Def worth it ! Beautiful views and tons of fun. Red Rocks was so cool and really liked the town of Golden.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thank you Sybil! Thrilled you enjoyed Golden, and RR is always amazing haha
It was really great!
NamHee_K, Mar 2023
It was really great! To add just one thing, I highly recommend you to go on this tour in other seasons rather than winter because you can't see the beautiful lake scenery in winter.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for the review! glad to see you enjoyed your tour. Sorry to hear about the weather, but that is something we contend with year-around. It snows up there well into June. Come back then and you can see for yourself!

Tracey_W, Mar 2023
This tour was a lot of fun and our tour guide was very knowledgeable!! He shared the history of the area and pointed out things that weren’t on the tour (old gold mines). Also stopped to see the wildlife in the area. We had about 30 mins to explore Red Rock and Evergreen on our own. I’d definitely recommend this tour!!!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for coming out on tour with us Tracey! And you got to see wildlife! its always a bit of a crap shoot so super exciting you were able to check some out.
Awesome Mountain trip
Daniela_B, Mar 2023
We were a small group with the best tour guide ever. Emily made it a fun experience throughout the whole trip. We learned a lot from her knowledge shared and had lots of great picture stops. We can only highly recommend the tour, in particular if you only have very little time in Denver.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for the review. We always say if you have a short time in Denver this is the tour to do, so good to see everyone agrees!
Great Day
Kirsten_f, Feb 2023
Tour Guide Emily was amazing. Tour was informative and the scenery was beautiful. Would recommend to anyone visiting the Denver area.
