It was a great tour that was well worth the buck. Kyle did an amazong job as our tour guide. He is well informed on many things ranging from history, wildlife, geography to some pretty good recommendations for Denver. He seemed pretty experienced driving in the narrow mountain roads up to Mount Evans, and played some good mountain jams. We took the tour on our second day in Denver. Would definitely recommend it and hope we could do a Rocky Mountain National park tour with Kyle in the future.

So good :) I highly recommend this tour. Red Rocks Amphitheater is stunning, a world class music venue built into and around prehistoric rock formations. Mt. Evans also didn't disappoint - other than the stunning views, we saw elk, marmots, and wooly mountain goats. Shay (aka Shea Butter) was our fantastic guide :) She is a great storyteller and knows a lot about the history and wildlife of the area. She kept things very interactive during a well-paced tour.

Jet our tour guide was awesome! He was so knowledgeable and he knew a lot about the Mt. Evans tour. He was friendly and made us feel comfortable. I was especially pleased with the way he cared for his group and their well-being. He had a good sense of humor and he genuinely took his time with the entire tour which made the experience more enjoyable. He was an all around nice guy. My sister and I were extremely pleased with our fun filled day and we look forward to doing another tour in the future.
