    We did the Rocky Mountain full day hike with Kyle yesterday. It was incredible. The views, breathtaking. It was definitely more challenging than we expected but we appreciated the stop for coffee with the locals, his passion and enthusiasm about wildlife, his knowledge and experience which helped us trust him, and how he encouraged us. We loved Kyles recommendation for dinner! We tried the buckhorn exchange! It was definitely the highlight of our time in Colorado!

    Aaron is a very great tour guide. From the pick up time, we waited until a little bit for the two persons who were late but other than that we were on time. He was very considerate for the people who are first time hikers (me!) with our hiking pace. He shared a lot of information about the rocky mountains and denver and gives up tips on where to eat and visit while we’re in town. He’s willing to take our pictures, most of the times we wouldn’t even asked him but he would offer immediately! Overall, I would recommend this trip, it was more than worth the money we paid for with what we did with this trip!

    Nick was the tour guide and it was an excellent experience! I was traveling solo and there were only a few others on the hike and he made sure everyone was doing okay and had what we needed. Overall an excellent experience and well worth the money!

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND! My boyfriend and I enjoyed our tour and had a fantastic experience with Nick on Hiking Aspire Tours. As avid travelers, I would say that our hiking tour with Nick was one of the best we’ve ever done. Nick is very knowledgeable and shared many fascinating facts about the area's history, culture friendly and made sure we had a great day. He took us to incredible Rockies and it truly felt like a day out with an old friend. We hiked on Cub Lake , man it was the highlight of my Denver trip. Thank you , Nick & Aspire Tours for this wonderful first timer experienced in Denver. We absolutely loved it and can't wait to come back!

    From start to finish, this trip was an incredible journey! Jed, like Jedi but without the i (inside joke), was the best guide! His knowledge of the Denver area, the Rocky Mountains, and the hike itself were amazing. The hike was easily the most incredible hike I’ve ever had. The views, far exceeded our expectations, and our expectations were high. I couldn’t recommend this trip enough! Do it, you won’t regret it!

    Had a wonderful time hiking in the Rockies with my tour guide Kyle! He educated our group with tons of interesting facts about the places we visited and the wildlife we saw. We all learned so much and received so many great restaurant recs as well! Also enjoyed hearing about the personal backpacking and camping stories he shared. Would definitely recommend this experience to friends or anyone looking to experience a moderate guided hike in Rocky Mountain National Park.

    Majestic Hike in the Snowy Rockies
    au5wk8p3nb
    , Nov 2021
    I took this hiking trip to the Rockies with Dylan from Aspire. The views were majestic as we saw snow-topped mountains, frozen lakes, and wondrous trees. I would recommend this hike to beginner/intermediate/advanced hikers since Dylan customized the hike according to the group’s skill level. Although it was a short hike (3-4 miles roundtrip), it was worthwhile! Dylan also knew the trails and Colorado history/geography very well. Albeit the weather was cold and windy-I wish I had on more layers and warmer socks and gloves-I felt like I was in a winter wonderland from a movie. One of the best experiences I have had in a long time!

    Absolute must do excursion!

    We were visiting Denver for a long weekend and decided to go on this excursion. Absolutely did not disappoint. The pick up was super easy and without issues. Our Guide, Mike, was fantastic from the beginning to the end. We were a group of 8 people with varying levels of activity and Mike accommodated everyone. Mike is very knowledgeable and definitely caters to the individual needs of the group. One thing to note is that if you are staying in the Denver downtown area the temperature in the mountains is 10-15 degrees colder. Be sure to have some extra layers for the hike. Consider checking the temperatures in Estes Park to be sure. The drive out was about an hour and a half with a stop in a neat little town for coffee along the way. When we got to the park our guide went over all the information and on our way we went. We were surprised with a good bit of snow and wind, but it added to the amazing beauty of the park. Also note the lunch was delicious! The fantastic handmade sandwiches from a bakery we picked up on the way out to the park. The excursion was amazing and everyone had a great time. Definitely recommend this for anyone staying in Denver.

    Dillon/Dylan was an incredible guide. His knowledge of the surrounding area’s history in addition to his knowledge of the trails made for a perfect combo for a guide. Let us go at our own pace and was able to show us great spots for photos!
