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!

This afternoon tour was great. Saw some spectacular views. Evan was a great tour guide and his knowledge of area is exceptional. We definitely learned a lot of history about the area in an enjoyable environment. Evan was very accommodating to the guests, helping anyone that needed water or who were having issues going to that altitude. Will definitely recommend this tour. Evan is also a foodie, giving some really good recommendations,

We loved the experience with my sister and my parents (in their 70s and 80s). Transportation was very comfortable and loved the small group size...10 of us including the guide. We had 3 stops along the way...one at a lookout photo stop, one with a short hike around a lake if you choose. My parents went to the lodge gift shop and had a piece of pie instead. Last stop was in a cute town with shops and a coffee shop. Best part of the trip was our guide Aaron!! Absolutely fantastic, very informative and fun. This trip is a must do when visiting Denver!
