We really appreciated the energy of our tour guide Dillon! We saw incredible views, a neat unique former gold mining town (Idaho Springs), beautiful mountain lake, and of course the glorious Rockies!! Dillon answered all questions with knowledge and quick wit humor. I enjoyed this excursion immensely!

Not impressed

Was not as impressed with this trip as I was hoping. The first stop at clear creek, while very pretty, I feel was a waste of time. My husband and I thought more time would have spent at thr rocky mountains. The guide was informative while driving, but spent no time with group at our stops. Spend the extra money and take the full day tour

Hi Nicole, We are sorry to hear your expectations were not met. We very much agree that a full day tour allows you more time in the Rockies however for people who only have a half day available this tour is a great option. This tour is designed to get people outside the car and to take short walks to enjoy nature. All the stops are in the Rocky Mountains - including Clear Creek. Hopefully you will book a full day tour with us in the future. We take care of our repeat customers.

Had a great tour with Aaron. He was a fun guide on our drives up. Super knowledgeable and really personable. The stops were all beautiful, especially the final lookout point. He took lots of pictures for us and the rest of the tour and we really appreciated it. We were a little out of breath due to the altitude so the slow, easy walks were a perfect way to get acclimated. On the way back, he gave us lots of great recommendations. P.S we liked his idea about the tequila and tacos tour.

Our tour guide, Gentry (sp?) was very informative and excellent. The trip provided us with great views and information about the Rocky Mountain area. It was a half-day Escape so unfortunately a little too short, but enjoyable all the same.
