It is a small group tour, for which the attention is magnificent. Our guide was aware of the needs we had as a group. About the experience, it is a short but spectacular walk, we went during the snow season, so the landscape is very beautiful. In the geothermal ropes you rest and relax!! Without a doubt a great tour.

I cannot recommend this experience highly enough. Our guide, Ariel, was superb and made sure everyone in the group was included. The hike is beautiful with breathtaking scenery and the Geothermal pools help you warm up afterwards! This was the highlight of my trip to Denver and I would definitely do this again. Ariel, thank you for making the day so much fun!

My friend and I were visiting CO and wanted to hike without worrying where to go and what to do. Tyler and Bree were amazing guides!! They were so fun, accommodating and friendly. I cannot say enough great things about this tour and the guides. I am looking forward to my next trip to CO and tour with Adventure Colorado Tours!
