We had an excellent time on our jeep tour with Creek! He showed us some amazing views and gave us a lot of great historical information, all the while keeping us entertained and informed. The jeep was super comfy and we had no trouble accommodating our 7 year old and 1 year old’s car seats. We will definitely do this again if we come back to the area as we had a blast!

In 90+degree heat, touring Garden of the Gods by Segway was a treat. The guide trained 4 Segway newbies, provided interesting info, took good pictures, and pointed out areas of interest. My family will remember this experience for a long time.

This was a fun wonderful experience. The guide was amazing and very knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend this for anyone and everyone!
