We loved this tour! Red Rocks Ampitheatre was breathtaking and the drive to Echo Lake was breath-taking. Our fav stop was the little town of Evergreen- we wish we could have stayed longer. Our tour-guide Will was very knowledgeable.

Phil did a great job of sharing Denver’s rich history as well as guiding us to 3 fantastic places. It was a thrill to stand center stage at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. We saw 2 Moose at lake Echo. Phil also displayed great knowledge of the local wild life and foliage. I’d recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Denver
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Ooh.. moose sightings in winter are extra magical. Thanks for touring with us!

Colin_H, Dec 2023
Fantastic tour with Will the Tour guide. Will is very knowledgeable and personable. The Red Rocks amphitheatre is amazing to see and it was nice to visit the town of Evergreen. Going up to over 11,000ft and looking out across the Continental Divide at the Mountains and the 14nrs is very cool and then to walk on the frozen Echo Lake finished off a great afternoon. Great pics and memories. Thank you!
Response from Host, Dec 2023

Perfect short trip to see highlights
Valerie_H, Oct 2023
Simple excursion to get a taste of the area. I should've worn regular tennis shoes like the others in the small group did. Wished we had more time at Red Rock to explore, we were only there 45 minutes, so I didn't walk down past the amphitheater - thought I wouldn't be able to walk all the way back up and wanted to save my energy. I'm 50 and have been walking our stadium seats at home in Michigan to get in shape for this, but the altitude was affecting me. Others in my group did walk down from the upper parking lot down to the trading post and back up. I went into the visitors center and used the bathroom, filled my water bottle, and looked through part of the museum. Our tour guide Cowboy Frank challenged us to ask a question from the museum later and he got it right! He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a great tour narrative in general. Such a great guy. Our next stop was Echo Lake but we stopped to see some bison on the way, which was a short walk from parking area on a paved trail. Echo Lake was gorgeous! We walked the trail around the lake, which seemed light just a slight incline, but it was kicking my butt because of the altitude, about 11,000 feet I think. Luckily this was a short hike, beautiful forest! He carefully and cautiously drove us through the mountains down to the quaint town of Evergreen where we stopped for a 45 minute break to grab a drink, sandwich, and few minutes through a few gift shops on our own. I highly recommend the The Muddy Buck for a food stop as that side of the road seemed like the buildings were original old west rugged charm. It was so nice to have an excursion that touched on the highlights yet I didn't have to do any of the treacherous driving out navigating! Thanks!

The best bit about the tour was Cowboy Frank himself. Knowledgable, charming, funny, he brought us all together and brought the landscape to life. It was fascinating and entertaining in equal measure. Highly recommended
