Unforgettable day
Felicity_C, Mar 2023
It had just snowed and was very cold. Our guide Gentry took us on 2 beautiful short walks and the landscape was spectacular
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hello! It's great to hear that you had an unforgettable day with Gentry in Rocky Mountain National Park! Thanks for choosing to spend your day exploring with us!
Great way to experience the Rocky Mountain National Park
Kimberly_M, Mar 2023
Well done tour with an awesome tour guide! Ty was personable and knowledgeable, making the entire trip a great experience. The van was comfortable and not over packed with enough room for everyone. There were plenty of stops allowing for exploring in the park and outside the park, lunch and a bit of time to roam Estes Park and Lyons. It was such a great tour I don’t have any recommendations for improvement!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Wow, no recommendations for improvement! We appreciate that, and try very hard to make our tours the highlight of your visit. Thank you for your detailed review and kind words about Ty! He is a great guide and we are glad you got to spend the day with him in the National Park!
Great day in the Rockies!
Aubrae_W, Mar 2023
Overall a great tour and nice trip out of the city. It was unexpectedly cold, but Steve made sure we didn’t miss out on anything with lots of short stops and interesting info in between. Steve was contentious; getting to know everyone individually, clearly laying out the itinerary as well as food and bathroom stops! He even scouted out some Elk for us while we were at lunch, so we didn't miss out. If you stop in Estes Park for lunch, we’d recommend the Wapiti Colorado Pub for friendly and quick service with a great craft beer selection. Made us want to go back to the Rockies for more!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your detailed review! Steve is an awesome guide and we are so happy to hear you enjoyed your day in the mountains with him! And getting to see some elk, what a bonus! Next visit, we would love to take you back out into the mountains!
Highly Recommended Tour
Maria_Z, Mar 2023
This is a perfect tour for those who do not care to drive up the Rocky Mountain Park because you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the views! Our guide Steve was wonderful and friendly, we love that he was very knowledgeable about the area and shared a lot of history and facts with us. He also kept reminding us to keep ourselves hydrated, which is very important because of the elevation. Thank you Steve! 😊
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Maria! Isn't Steve great? We're happy to hear that he took such good care of you and your group in Rocky Mountain National Park! We'd love to have you back, so please keep us in mind the next time you find yourself in Denver!

Great day out!
Shiladitya_P, Mar 2023
Great day out! You should do it if in Denver area. Be prepared to brave the cold. Wrap up warm & enjoy the mountains and occasional wildlife!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
That's a great tip! A lot of our visitors in March are surprised to find that winter hangs out with us just a bit longer than where they're coming from. It sounds like you got to see some critters too, that's great!

Fun in the snow and amazing sightseeing!
Max_W, Mar 2023
Our guide Nicole was great, very energetic and knowledgeable! It was snowing a ton and visibility was a bit tricky, but the park is absolutely incredible and we got to see wild life (mostly elk!). Nicole also brought sleds in the van and we were able to enjoy the snow! Would definitely recommend!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Max! I could definitely go for some sledding in Rocky Mountain national Park right about now, I'm jealous! Thanks for leaving Nicole (and us) with such a kind note, we truly appreciate it!
Wacky and Wonderful

Climbing in the snow, sledding and heating out drivers stories were exceedingly fun. The little bits of knowledge he shared were also interesting.

Wonderful day under the snow
Paul_D, Mar 2023
Our guide Nichole was great today! The first step in Lyons, allowed to walk, to go to the toilet, a very authentic bakery served delicious artisanal products! Then we headed to Estes Park, it was our favorite of the trip, we had time to eat in a traditional pizzeria located in a distillery, it was magnificent! Then we arrived in the national park, under the snow, truly magnificent! We also went sledding, it was beyond my expectations! Thanks again!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Hi Paul! There really is something special about Rocky Mountain National Park when it's snowing, we're happy that you found it as beautiful as we do! It sounds like you took advantage of the culinary options too, what a great way to experience this tour!
