    This is a must-do when in Denver! We had tour guide Steve, who had a wealth of knowledgeable and a genuine love for the park. We learned so much from him! He made sure we had ample bathroom breaks and snapped lots of photos for everyone in the group. He was very familiar with the park and took us to all of the beautiful spots. We saw moose, elk, and deer. Would absolutely recommend you spend a day at RMNP. Book this tour!

    Our guide, Ty was friendly , easy to get along , knowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife. The tour was a lot more relaxing than some of the other tours I've been in the past and it's definitely worthwhile spending a day doing the tour if you don't plan to drive to the national park. Great work Ty!

    Our tour guide Troy was very patient with everyone on board. I didn't get motion sickness since I took medication off it, but I was allowed to sit more towards the front just on case. We were provided woth food and plenty of bathroom breaks. The only thing I can suggest is maybe starting the tour earlier so we can see more of the park. We made a few stops at BEAUTIFUL locations. I chose to take a tour becaise I traveled to Colorado on my own and do not accustom going to national parks alone. I highly recommend this tour if you are traveling alone or are older amd want good cutlstomer service. If you come with a friend, you might be able to see more of the park by getting a rental car. Overall great experience.

    This was absolutely one of the most exceptional trips I have been to. Jed and Nicole were fantastic as guides. Jed was so passionate about the geology, the wildlife, the forests, the history, geography and the science of the area that the trip became amazing and extremely informative. As it was a small group tour, each and every one of us got time to meander around a bit into nature and experience our own tryst with it. We saw the elks, a coupe of moose, deer, mountain goats and a coyote. We also got a fantastic working lunch. The passport at the Visitor's centre is an absolute must buy. Please stamp it for the day that you spent there on this trip. Overall, this trip cannot be missed by anyone who loves nature, the mountains, the lakes and the wildlife!

    I highly recommend this tour. If you visit Denver, this is definitely a must do! Ryan and Ty were our guides and they were really nice! Especially, Ryan is an expert in explaining both Denver/Boulder/Rocky Mountain area, as well as wildlife. He was very knowledgeable and passionate in wildlife. Also, Ryan and Ty genuinely cared about people experiencing the wildlife and having a good time. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit Rocky Mountain National Park.
