Our guide, Harley was awesome. He kept us engaged, up to date on where we were going and asked us about bathroom breaks before we started prolonged driving. I learned a lot about the area and saw so many animals!!!! Definitely recommend and would do other available tours on return trips.

I’m very happy that I booked this tour. It was a comfortable van to ride in & get in and out of. We stopped at Estes Park for a quick bite to eat & then went on to Rocky Mountain National Park. The scenery was spectacular. Our last stop was at Stanley Hotel. It was a great day & we had a little time at each stop. Mark did a fantastic job & played really good music during the drive.
