Totally worth it! - Our tour was fantastic! Our guide, Jerry S, was informative and very entertaining. He was truly present the entire tour. On top of that, he was also a phenomenally safe driver! That’s something I value above all else! I would definitely recommend taking this tour to anyone.

Must-do Daytrip from Denver - My husband and I were in Denver for 4 days. This tour is a great way to explore the Rocky Mountain area without a rental car and on a limited schedule. The ride was comfortable. We sat in the backseat, so we had extra space since there were 11 people on the tour with us. Jeff, our guide, was pleasant and knowledgeable. We didn’t feel rushed at the different sites at all. He gave great recommendations and stopped at perfect spots to take in the views of the Rocky Mountains and wildlife.

10 out of 10 would recommend! - I was here for a school trip and I had a great time! Our tour guide, Sadie, was incredibly funny and charisma and made sure everyone was safe and comfortable throughout the ride! I had the chance to take a bunch of photos and I'm very happy with how it went.

Memorable Rocky Mountain adventure - I went on a tour today with Ty and he made our first trip to the Rocky National Park incredible! We had a wonderful time listening to his stories about the region and the culture and the music. He was friendly, informative and very knowledgeable about the region. He had patience with me taking photos of my family too. He was great and I really highly recommend anyone use his guide services. He also recommended a very good restaurant we ate at in Estes Park. I just can’t say enough about this friendly and great guy. He even had some traction attachments to add to our shoes so we didn’t slip in the snow. And we saw elk and he stopped to let us take photos. Thank you Ty! 😊👍

Rocky Mountain adventure - Took the Rocky Mountain NP tour w my 18 year old college freshman daughter. We loved the whole day. It’s a very well run tour and the guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and all the sights. It’s a long day but it takes time to get to the park and back. We loved walking on the frozen lake and seeing Longs Peak from multiple angles.

Rockies National w/ Gentry - The scenery was fantastic. We saw mule deer, elk and prairie dogs. Our driver was Gentry and she was knowledgeable, friendly and cheerful. Just a great time. Let Gentry know we went to Red Rock the next day and that was an awesome suggestion. Had a great time there as well.

Not Trustworthy - This company (Viator) is unreliable, specially if you only have a day or two available for travelling. The guide did not show up on the day of the trip. I called many times and after an hour of waiting for them, someone picked the phone and told me that they had some “car problem” and would not pick us up. No one was notified of this, we were just left waiting for them, with a lost opportunity of visiting the Rocky Mountains.
