Very enjoyable!

My tour guide Gabor was very friendly and gave us lots of interesting information about Denver and Boulder on the drive there! The hike itself was also very beautiful, it wasn’t very long, but it was so cool seeing the different wildlife (we saw elk and a moose) and also learning a bit about different parts of the trail! It’s also a very great way to experience Rocky Mountain National Park if you don’t have a car or if you’re unable to get a reservation :) the trail is also relatively easy, there are some parts that can be a bit more challenging, and the altitude can make it harder, especially if you’re from sea level, but for the most part, it wasn’t very intense as long as you’re in shape

Our tour guide Gabor was awesome. He is very knowledgeable and took us on a hike that was crowded which was really great. There was a group of 10 of us, which I would have preferred a smaller group. Some wasted time because of group size, but all in all it was a wonderful experience.

I had a wonderful experience, thank you Ryan with Aspire Tours! Good driving😀, hike, resting time to take photos eat the tasty sandwiches provided. I felt like I was with my group of fronds. We were only 8 that day for the tour but we became friends and felt so good together. Lots of informations about the geography and fauna and flora of the places we passed . I recommend this tour , the hiking g is moderate as difficulty but Ryan waited for the last one to checked up, while entertaining us with wonderful stories about the places we visited. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you Ryan and thank you Aspire tour company for being so professional and dependable.

This tour was beyond pictures and words could describe. Win did an amazing job to leading the pack, sharing his experiences and always kept our group safe and motivated. I'd definitely do this hike again. Go for the hike and views and come back a changed person.

Not that great

The tour guides were nice and probably knowledgeable, however, I sat in the back and couldn’t hear anything. I wish they had a microphone. We couldn’t make it to the main trail due to traffic and instead took an alternate one. If you are like me and think that they have some special permits then — no, they don’t.
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Hi Zhanerke, We are sorry the trip did not meet your expectations. We have commercial use permits for the entire Rocky Mountain National Park. There is no main trail for us but a list of possible hikes the guides can chose from depending on the weather and trail condition that day. We do list some of the trail options in the itinerary to make sure people understand what they get into. Feel free to call us at anytime to discuss this further - 720.583.0654
