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!

What people are saying about Rocky Mountains, United States
Whipper was our guide and was very personable and knowledgeable. He provided us with colorful and entertaining stories of the history and legends of the area. We were even provided a demonstration of why he acquired his name. The jeep tour included much more than I expected and I was delighted. One of the other passengers required some extra assistance and Whipper provided it in a very gracious and respectful manner. I would highly recommend this activity and definitely ask for Whipper to be your guide. You will not be disappointed.
We took the Adventures Out West Jeep tour of the Garden of the Gods Area and it was Awesome! Summit, our guide grew up in the area and his knowledge of the areas history and personal stories growing up in such a wonderful place added a lot to the enjoyment and overall experience.
Maverick was a very friendly and extremely knowledgeable guide. He was also a very safe and gracious driver (even in the face of other motorist being dangerous and rude)
