Amazing day trip from Denver to do some hiking in the beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park! Jed was an incredible guide - so knowledgeable about the area (he modified the route to be in a section of the national park where we would be more protected from the expected rainfall), and shared interesting info about the animals and plants we came across.

Canceled and changed to sightseeing tour
Aurimas_D, Dec 2023
I signed up for hiking tour, but it was canceled due to lack of participation and I was offered sightseeing tour instead. It was great, thanks to good work of tour guide Dillan.
Great Hiking Experience
Ivan_R, Nov 2023
Christian was an amazing guide! He is quite knowledgeable and knows where the good spots are. I loved the views and the hike!
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Hi Ivan! Thanks for adventuring up to Rocky Mountain National Park with us! Hiking is a great way to connect with nature and we're happy to hear you and Christian enjoyed your day together!
Awesome hiking experience.
Shneour_H, Nov 2023
A really nice hiking tour. The hike was challenging but very doable. Kyle is an awesome guide. Very happy I went.
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hello! Thank you for leaving Kyle with such a kind note! We'd love to have you back sometime soon!
Reasonable substitute
Milos_Z, Nov 2023
As this tour Was cancelled (I was probably the only one on it) I got a substitute “Rocky Mountains National Park Tour”. That one was great as well. Not much hiking, rather sightseeing by car. However our guide Kyle included also a very short hike to the rocks next to a waterfall. I really appreciated that. Kyle is also very knowledgeable regarding local history and funny stories. I really enjoyed the tour. I hope that next time I’ll be more lucky and we will hike together. Thank you Kyle.
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Milos! We hate being the bearers of bad news, so it wasn't fun for us to have to cancel our hike due to lack of sign ups. That being said, we're really happy to hear you were still able to explore and experience the beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park!
10/10 would do again. High altitude for breathing is no joke
Connor_M, Nov 2023
So I’m a Floridian. This definitely put me to work coupled with the high altitude adjustment. Our guide, Jed, was super sick and beyond knowledgeable. He was thorough on every question and went into great detail about the wildlife, history, culture and much more. I’d recommend him for any hike! He also did a great job connecting with the group and making sure no one felt left out.
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Connor! Kudos to you for challenging yourself, it sounds like you found it well rewarding! We'd love to have you back out with us soon, so please don't be a stranger!

Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Elena! Thanks for leaving such a kind review for Gentry! We're glad you two enjoyed your hiking adventure up in Rocky Mountain National Park!
Super cool & well-planned trip to the Rocky Mountains!
Ana_P, Nov 2023
What an awesome experience! I got picked up at Denver Union Station and we then headed to a small town where you can get some snacks and toilet break. After that we discussed with Joshua (our awesome guide) to see what tour would we take since some people might not be comfortable with snow! We then all decided to go for it and Joshua had the snow crampons, which was super useful! We were also given snacks and water and a sandwich! The hike was super doable, we took as many breaks as needed, we had time for photos and the group itself got along super well! We hiked until the 3rd lake and then stopped to have lunch! The whole thing was super well done, super well planned, I'm very glad I did it!
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Ana, thanks for keeping an eye on Joshua for us! We're glad to hear your hiking adventure was such a success!
Rocky Mountain 8 hour Hiking Tour
Connor_S, Nov 2023
The Rocky Mountain hiking tour was awesome. Joshua was a terrific tour guide. He gave us a nice balance of programmed tour and flexibility to see and enjoy what different members of the group wanted. The hiking tour is great for anyone who wants to break a sweat and get a little more adventure in. Aspire takes care of all the logistics - you can really just show up and enjoy.
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Connor! Thanks for showing up! Believe it or not, that's the hardest part for some of our guests. Thanks for being a rockstar and including us in your vacation plans.
Great time at Rocky Mountain National Park
Gina_I, Nov 2023
All the beautiful sights we saw!!!! Joshua was a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide. He has extra water and snacks for us if needed and sandwiches were provided. We ate lunch at the top of trail. Joshua provided us guidance and flexibility on the tour.
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Hi Gina! Thanks for leaving Joshua (and ourselves) with such kind words! We're happy to hear that your hiking adventure up to Rocky Mountain National Park was such a success! Come back soon!

My Wilderness Experience
Helen_O, Oct 2023
Seeing the elks at Rocky Mountain National Park, eating lunch at the Cub Lake up on the mountain and being in the wilderness surrounded by serene nature.
Great trail for moderate intensity and wild life
Lisa_H, Oct 2023
Great hike and Guide with good transport, stops and lunch too. Jake helped navigate successfully around two bull elk squaring off with safe distance.
Response from Host, Oct 2023
Wow! Not a lot of people get to get to see a showdown between such impressive animals, we're glad Jake was there to make sure you and your group could safely watch and appreciate it! Safe travels home!
Great tour, would do again!
Jacqueline_V, Sep 2023
I couldn’t have asked for a more incredible day. Before we started our hike we stopped to see a moose, and during our hike we saw deer and well over 100 elk! The elk caused us to take an unexpected detour towards the end, but I was so magical to see them. Ty is an incredible guide and he made sure everyone was safe and well-hydrated.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Thank you for sharing your experience from your tour with Ty and viewing lots of wildlife! We hope to welcome you back again soon.
I would not go hiking trips with this company again ,
Mahesh_S, Aug 2023
1. I paid $199 for this hike and it was not worth it, was poorly planned, lunch was below average. 2. I felt the guide was rushing us back , did not plan bathroom break properly and did not stop anywhere in between while returning to Denver for coffee or bathroom break. 3. The trail picked was also average, guide was only thinking of where to park instead of go a known and beautiful trail.
