    Ty was an excellent guide. He was very considerate of all hikers and very knowledgeable of the natural habitat. I also enjoyed hearing the history and random facts Ty shared during the van ride to/from Denver and Rocky Mountains National Park.

    I will always remember the most breathtaking views hiking with my daughter in the Rocky’s! It was such a beautiful day and Nick our tour guide with awesome! He was so fun, kind and informative. He knew where to stop and get great pictures and picked a wonderful place for us to hike. I would recommend this tour to anyone that is coming to visit the Denver area, my daughter and can’t wait to come back!

    Magical and Worth It!

    We were in Denver for a short stay and wanted to find an easy and fun solution to get the Rocky Mountain National Park for the day. This tour was it! Honestly, the day was magical. Gentry was an incredible, down to earth guide with a ton of knowledge. She took us on an epic hike that we will never forget. This is the best non-touristy tour ever and I would recommend to anyone who is wavering on trying to rent a car and figure it on your own. Also yes, you should be fit enough to climb up on incline for an hour or so and scramble across some big boulders.

    This tour was amazing, we will definitely book again! Our hiking guide, Kyle, was fantastic - he was extremely knowledgeable about the local history and wildlife and always had us laughing with his jokes along the way. The hiking trail he picked was great - we avoided the crowds and got to see some of the locals’ more preferred spots. Tip for those coming from out of the country - make sure to have US cash on you to tip your guides. Help support their lifestyle! Thank you, Kyle for an awesome experience!

    The whole hike was great. The guide Ryan was great and knew a lot . Me and my son had a great time. He was very knowledgeable and knew a lot about the wildlife and terrain. Also about the plants. We got to see a mule deer, bald eagle and wild turkeys. We had a great time.

    Highly recommend this tour! Phil was a great guide. The hike itself was a bit more strenuous than expected, bit we should have read the description better. My husband and I were quite proud of ourselves when we finished. The views were amazing.

    Our tour guide Dylan (not sure of spelling haha) was fantastic! We were able to see herd of Elk and just enjoy the amazing views. Dylan got us safely out of the storm that quickly was approaching. Thank goodness for packing rain gear. It was an incredible day. Everyone in the group was nice and friendly. A fun day that I’ll always remember.

    This was the perfect last full day of our week long family trip to Colorado with our teenage boys. Our guide, Nick, made the day. Picking out a great hike to Emerald Lake that still had some snow on it in early June and brought everything along we needed ie. Shoes chains for the snow, sandwiches, plenty of water and even chips and cookies! Would highly recommend!

    The guide, Erren was really kind, knowledgeable and prepared throughout the hiking at the rockies. In his words, we were really lucky to watch 3 out of the 4 most memorable animals in the mountains. Yes, moose included.
