What people are saying about Boulder

Our tour guide, Marc, was exceptional. Throughout the journey he spoke about the state of Colorado. Providing detailed information on it's history, certain places to visit, querky things to do. He also provided detailed information on the Rocky Mountains, it's surrounding towns and cities, and where the best spots were. He also told us of interesting stories from accidents on the mountains to films shot here. We visited all places on the itinery with suitable time spent in each. Marc also made sure everyone was suitably comfortable, had enough supplies and generally checked on our well-being and was happy to help if needed. Personally, Marc has been the best tour guide I have come across during my time in North America and the feeling amongst fellow travellers was also the same. 10/10 for sure!

Mark is an outstanding guide - incredibly insightful and knowledgeable, giving you an even deeper appreciation of the stunning scenery of the Rockies. Thank you so much!

Brian was great. The views were amazing. The only thing that could have helped was telling people to met at the flag pole. Worth the money!!!!!!

Brian was great! He truly made the tour. We didn’t have the best weather but we managed to take some fantastic pictures and even saw a few elk!

I had a great time and it was well worth the money!
