The tour guide (Nick) was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He provided excellent recommendations, offered to take pictures and made extra stops for us to see more. The trip in itself is great, we saw the Lily Lake, stopped to eat lunch at our own pace and then ventured into the beautiful Rocky Mtns forest. Overall it is a great trip especially in winters where you can sit back and enjoy the snowy scenes and hear all about your surroundings from a great guide!

Hi Gentry was great!. We had a greet time in our trip, took the time to answer our questions in Spanish and took us to great places for good sightseeings and pictures. The picnic place was good, had good time for lunch. This was our first visit to the Rocky Mountains and made it memorable. All the best

The tour of Rocky Mountain National Park was awesome. The guide was knowledgeable, amusing, kind, a good driver, and just a joy to spend time with. The lunch was tasty, too. I'd recommend this tour to anyone who wants an overview of the RMNP and lots of stops to take photos. It's the best.

Our guide Steve was very informative and always making sure we were all comfortable on the ride to the Rocky Mountains. Very beautiful trip and well worth the money,

Really nice trip. I would exchange some views and stops for a bit more walking but priceless experience otherwise.
