This experience was amazing. It was worth way more than what I paid for it. Our tour guide, Jed, was so experienced and knew a lot of the history of the mountains without boring us with unnecessary details. The scenery was beautiful and the amount of time we got to explore and walk around on our own was the best. There is a little town in Idaho Springs with a lot of small souvenir shops with everything you could think of. The van we were in was very comfortable, even with every seat filled. I would recommend this adventure to any and everyone, you will not be disappointed. I’m so glad I got to experience this and I will remember it forever!
The 8 hour of Rocky Mountain national park tour was a garbage but I still want to use this app because this tour was impeccable! You visit many places within 4 hours, all of which are so worth visiting. The tour is so compact but I could have enough time for everything!
Mike is our guide and he had been given us an excellent service and knowledge about the whole state.
Amazing tour. Our guide Shea Butter was a great story teller and guide.
It was a very enjoyable tour, and Lindsay was a great tour guide.
