Our tour guide was Kyle, though he was 15 minutes late picking us up, he definitely made for it. He was full of so much information, and so helpful with any questions we had. I feel like our trip in to Idaho Springs was something that I could’ve done on my own free time. But our trip up Mount Evans was incredible. The hike in the woods, will definitely be very memorable. I feel like a 3rd stop would had made the trip better.

Shea butter was an interesting informative guide. I was sad not to do any actual hiking in the mountains. We stopped at Idaho Springs which I thought was a total waste of time. Would have preferred to spend that time actually hiking trails in the mountains instead of a quick walk near the highway.
