I was a little nervous traveling with our son and my brother, who is blind & autistic. However, the guide was understanding, patient, and accommodating with both their needs. The 3 stops were each inspiring and beautiful in their own ways. The last stop was my favorite, going over 10,000 feet in elevation to the top of a Mountain, made us feel on top of the world. We loved that there was still some snow left and enjoyed a mini snowball fight. The lake was breath taking and I think I took more pictures of that, than my own family! In all, I would definitely do this tour again, but a full day. We did feel a little rushed at each stop but still enjoyed every second we were there. 10/10 would recommend!

Perfectly balanced low impact hike with a highly passionate and informed guide
Luke_M

To have such a knowledgeable and passionate guide as Kyle was an absolute blessing. His enthusiasm for the region and the way he spoke of the areas we visited really made for an amazing day. Great low impact tour for those that want to see the sites from the comfort of the vehicle but also the opportunity to have a walk around. We had an awesome clear day and were able to capture great views of the Rockys not to mention the amazing lakes we were able to walk around. Excellent guide, great weather and a great day all round.

Kyle did a great job bringing the tour to life. We saw the beautiful echo lake and took a brief hike around the water. We saw mule deer and bison. It was fun and fast - perfect half day getaway from the city.

Best way to see some of the Rockies and learn about the area if you're time to be a tourist is limited. Our tour host, Jed, was super informative and fun. You'll get a taste of what the Denver area has to offer in terms of history and outdoor beauty. I recommend going!

Terrible… They’re no specific on the description. And you spend all this 4 hour in a van… maybe 20 min explore …. I really don’t take this tour again, and I don’t recommend.
