Great fun tour
Rachel_W, Nov 2023
Jeff was a great tour guide. It was easy to find the pick up location the tour guide had information on the area. Water. Water was available. Many photos stops and restroom availability
Great way to see Denver’s beautiful surroundings
Kathleen_A, Nov 2023
Harley did an outstanding job of educating us and was entertaining as well. A buoyant personality, he showcased the highlights of Denver’s surrounding foothills in a way that was enthusiastic but never felt inauthentic. Lucky for us we had spectacular weather so views seemed even more glorious. Loved being at Red Rocks especially. And also fell in love with Golden. Great way to identify places to return to. Harley always checked on us to make sure we were handling the altitude ok. We both also appreciated what a good driver he was on those curvy mountain roads as well as highways. Great day!
Red Rock Rocks
Julie_G, Oct 2023
There should be clarity prior to the tour that the Buffalo Bill museum exploration includes a separate cost. The guide was good but disappointed the Red Rock cafe wasn’t open.
Viator Tour was great and Jeff is fantastic!

Harley is the best. A fun day

Great Tour With a Greater Guy
Tom_A, Aug 2023
The size & length of the tour were perfect for me, 4 hours with 14 people in a comfy van. You visit Red Rock, Lookout Mountain & Downtown Golden. Couldn't have been better. Our tour guide Jeff is the best. Ask for him. You won't regret it. I think all of us passengers feel like we made a new friend besides being given a great tour.

Area is beautiful, ...
Catherine_S, Jul 2023
Area is beautiful, However the tour was is a very small van for 12 tourist. The guide did not use a mic and tended to converse with the tourist in the front seat rather than the rest of the guests. Ampitheatre stop was way too short as was the stop in Golden.
Highly recommend!
Lindsay_D, Jun 2023
Knowledgeable and friendly guide! Recommended staying in Golden longer and taking an Uber back—great tip!
Easy half day tour
George_S, Jun 2023
Enthusiastic guide/excellent driver. Easy few stops and ample independent time at each. No problem with mountain driving. Only downside was lack of bison to view.
Red Rocks, Lookout Mtn, and Golde
Susan_G, Jun 2023
Wonderful tour with our guide, Jason. He was so knowledgeable and made it a really fun, interesting day. Highly recommend!
Great tour
Richard_P, Jun 2023
Great tour. Guide was super knowledgeable. All the sites were great. Only thing that was a bummer was that we didn’t get to see the heard of bison/buffalo. They just weren’t out that day.
Amazing trip
Roger_T, Jun 2023
All of the information Jason shared with us was amazing. The information that was shared with the group you are not going to find in 1 book.
