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!

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!

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,

The tour with Aaron was the best part of our trip to Denver. He was very knowledgeable about the area we were in and open to every question that was asked.

Our guide Dusty was very knowledgeable of the Garden of the Gods and of the area. He was very friendly and we were very comfortable.
