Give yourself a gift and do it! - Kyle is a terrific guide, highly recommended. We had a great day in the eastern side of RMNP. We hiked to three lakes, and had beautiful views of the Continental Divide. Kyle shared a lot of information with the group about hiking, the Rockies, and nearby Boulder and Denver. Lunch was good too.

10/10 would do again. High altitude for breathing is no joke - So I’m a Floridian. This definitely put me to work coupled with the high altitude adjustment. Our guide, Jed, was super sick and beyond knowledgeable. He was thorough on every question and went into great detail about the wildlife, history, culture and much more. I’d recommend him for any hike! He also did a great job connecting with the group and making sure no one felt left out.

Perfect first Rockies hike! - Couldn’t have asked for a more amazing first trip into the Rockies! The weather was perfect although snow and ice made it a little treacherous. Jed is an awesome guide, great at spotting wildlife and pointing out cool ecological facts! I made my first Rocky Mountain snow angel! Highly recommend this hiking adventure!

Super cool & well-planned trip to the Rocky Mountains! - What an awesome experience! I got picked up at Denver Union Station and we then headed to a small town where you can get some snacks and toilet break. After that we discussed with Joshua (our awesome guide) to see what tour would we take since some people might not be comfortable with snow! We then all decided to go for it and Joshua had the snow crampons, which was super useful! We were also given snacks and water and a sandwich! The hike was super doable, we took as many breaks as needed, we had time for photos and the group itself got along super well! We hiked until the 3rd lake and then stopped to have lunch! The whole thing was super well done, super well planned, I'm very glad I did it!

Canceled and changed to sightseeing tour - I signed up for hiking tour, but it was canceled due to lack of participation and I was offered sightseeing tour instead. It was great, thanks to good work of tour guide Dillan.

Reasonable substitute - As this tour Was cancelled (I was probably the only one on it) I got a substitute “Rocky Mountains National Park Tour”. That one was great as well. Not much hiking, rather sightseeing by car. However our guide Kyle included also a very short hike to the rocks next to a waterfall. I really appreciated that. Kyle is also very knowledgeable regarding local history and funny stories. I really enjoyed the tour. I hope that next time I’ll be more lucky and we will hike together. Thank you Kyle.
