  • Denver: Rocky Mountain Half-Day Explorer Trip

    1. Denver: Rocky Mountain Half-Day Explorer Trip

    The foothills of the Rocky Mountains bear amazing views, dinosaur tracks, and the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater. Drive along the historic Lariat Loop up Bear Creek Canyon and enjoy closer views of the Rockies.  Take a break along the way in Evergreen for a cup of coffee or a beer. Immerse yourself in some of the Wild West feel that Colorado has to offer.  Make a stop at Lookout Mountain for amazing views of the plains and the continental divide. This is the place where Buffalo Bill, the West’s first superstar, requested to be laid to rest.

    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!

  • Colorado Springs: Garden of the Gods Segway Tour

    2. Colorado Springs: Garden of the Gods Segway Tour

    Experience one of nature's greatest treasures, the Garden of the Gods, on an exciting Segway Tour. Admire the Colorado sights such as Kissing Camels, Praying Hands, and Park Overlook.  Enjoy unobscured views and a mellow pace that ensures your visit to this beautiful red rock park is memorable. Your guide will point out exotic plant life, red-tailed hawks, eagles' nests, mule deer, big horn sheep, and of course, numerous spectacular geologic formations and the unique caricatures hidden within them. You will have several short stops, however; generally stay on the Segway throughout the tour. You will learn about the cultural history of the park, and hear a variety of tall tales and true stories of the Old West and Colorado Springs. Be sure to dress in layers with closed-toe shoes. Your tour includes 'Cone Zone' safety training and the best guides in the west.

    Our tour guide, Kevin, was knowledgeable about the history of Garden of the God's and all of the rock formations. The weather was awesome which allowed us to see all of the sites. I would definitely recommend the segway tour to locals, new comers, and visitors.

  • Denver/Boulder: Rocky Mountain National Park Tour

    3. Denver/Boulder: Rocky Mountain National Park Tour

    Enter the Rocky Mountain National Park and experience the wonders that inspired early explorers to push for the protection of its amazing landscape. See Long’s Peak, the park’s highest mountain, soaring into the sky at 14,259 feet. Admire glacial-carved valleys, filled with aspen and pine trees. From Denver, drive along the Front Range through Boulder with its famous Flatirons Rock Formations. Continue through canyons alive with wildlife up to Estes Park, the charming town at the entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park.

    Once you have entered the park your guide will take you to the best spots for wildlife viewing, photographs, walks, or just relaxing. Throughout the summer the tour will take you up trail ridge road to 13,000 feet. In the winter the high alpine road is closed and more time will be spent discovering the valley and its crystal clear alpine lakes.

    Aaron was very knowledgeable about the park, its history and the surrounding area. The park is beautiful. I would have liked to do a little more hiking, but it was a pretty windy day when we got up high.

  • Denver: Rocky Mountain Escape

    4. Denver: Rocky Mountain Escape

    Explore the grand expanse of the Rocky Mountains with a 4-hour driving tour through off-the-beaten-path areas.

As you move between an array of vistas, your local guide will fill you in on Colorado’s diverse wildlife, as well as the urban culture that makes the state so unique. Afterwards, you'll head back down the mountain, filled with a sense of mountain serenity.

    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!
