What an adventure!
Stacie_S, Feb 2024
This was our first time vising Colorado from Texas and we were on a girls trip celebrating a Birthday. We had an absolute blast! Our tour guide, Rico, was fantastic. Give that man a raise because not only was he knowlegeable, witty and engaging, but also a fantastic photographer. Basically, everything you want in a guide. He spent an equal amount of time with the each group on our tour, whether it was taking photos or just pointing out cool facts. All of the places we stopped at were breathtaking and sledding in Breckenridge was amazing. The only con was that Rico accepted tips only via Venmo or cash. No one in my group uses Venmo and we barely had cash. Get Cashapp and Zelle, my guy!! You're fantastic and should absolutely get all the tips you deserve!!
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Hi Stacie, Thanks for leaving such a kind review for Rico, we're glad to hear the two of you enjoyed your day together! We'd love to have you back soon, so please don't be a stranger.
Great day!

Mountain must do!
Dana_h, Jan 2024
Our tour guide Izzy was delightful. Lots of fun facts about Denver, mixed in with great recommendations on unique things to eat and do. The drive took us pass breathtaking views. Highly recommend sledding in Breckinridge. Izzy had a few sleds for us to use! I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to enjoy the mountains without too much hassle.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Hi Dana! Mountain traveling can be a bit of a hassle between weather, road conditions, and the fellow drivers on the road, so we love making vacations just a little bit easier! Thanks for leaving Izzy (and us) with such kind words! We're glad to hear you and your family were able to try out some sledding as well, what a blast!

We had Jeb as our tour guide and he did a fantastic job. He took his time to explain the history behind the sights. He was very personable and helpful with great ideas for food spots and made sure we were all safe. My rating is based solely on the price value of the tour.
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Hi there. We appreciate you recognizing Jed and his guiding abilities, he's quite good at his job! Would you mind providing us with a little more elaboration about your perceived price value and in which areas you think we can improve?
Great tour with beautiful views!

Daniel_L, Feb 2023
Well worth the cost. Our tour guide Jed really was very knowledgeable about anything and everything we asked and was a complete joy to be around. Would for sure recommend to anyone I know that has not been to the area. Even when the tour was done asked us if wanted any dinner or other sight seeing recommendations while here in Denver.

Rocky Mountain National Park Tour: Best Tour Guide
Joyce_J, May 2022
Aaron was the best tour guide ever for our trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park. He shared with us the history of the Native American populations who resided in these lands and was extremely knowledgeable about the geology and the wildlife of the Rockys. Made our tour group all feel welcome and also asked us to introduce ourselves. Thank you Aaron for the memorable tour!
An awesome day in the Breckenridge
Britnie_N, Apr 2022
Our tour guide Steve did a fabulous job showing us the sights of the Breckenridge Explorer . He gave great information, told funny stories, and took great photos of my boyfriend and I while on the tour. Steve cared about our experience and is a great representative of Colorado. When we arrived to Breckenridge , we wanted to do the sled while everyone else wanted to do gondola. Steve didn’t hesitated and happy to take my boyfriend and I. Unfortunately, the sled slope was half melted so we ended up going back to gondola. This was an amazing day out and very entertaining. Highly recommend this tour.

Susan_S, Apr 2022
The trip was amazing from start to finish. I especially enjoyed the stop at Loveland Pass. The views were incredible. Breckinridge was enjoyable. The weather was perfect. Layer up because it can be chilly in the mountains.
Trip of a lifetime and our guide Jed was fantastic!
BeckyGroves, Apr 2022
Our guide Jed was the absolute best and made this tour and trip fantastic! We got to see and do so much, I recommend this tour to anyone, it is well worth the $$ and if I make it back to Denver I plan on taking another tour with this company and asking for Jed, he was that good! :-)
This tour is great. Highly recommend it.
