Nick, our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the sights we saw on the tour. The only recommendation we had was a little more time in Evergreen to grab and finish a drink.

My friends and I were wanting to see the mountains and red rock amphitheater but since we’re not natives to Denver, we weren’t sure the best way to do that - especially with having to Uber everywhere. This tour was phenomenal and took us to everything we wanted to see and more! Our tour guide, Jed, was very knowledgeable and fun to spend the morning with. I highly recommend this tour, it is worth it for sure!!!

Our guide, Nick, was stellar. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, and inclusive with everyone on the tour. His interpersonal skill was most appreciated. The tour was breathtaking! The tour instructions were well explained, tour guide was timely, and well priced for a four hour tour. A most memorable experience.

Denver Must Do!
Roxanne_Q

I had a wonderful time in this tour! I loved Aaron’s energy and his knowledge about the Denver scenery. This is a great tour for those who need to explore Denver and are limited in time. You get to see some beautiful mountain views and explore a nice little town. I took this tour hours before my returned flight which I wish I should have done at the beginning of my trip. Aaron gave some really great restaurant recommendations and other fun things to do in Denver. A definitely must do in Denver.

Overal it was a good tour, but the transportation wasn’t ideal as the initial van had a flat tire and we ended up using a bumpy shuttle.

I loved the Red Rocks Amphitheatre! I ended up climbing all the way down and up again. The town of Evergreen was also pleasant. Colorado weather can change pretty so always bring a rain jacket.

, Jul 2022
I don’t understand why the tour would begin at 1 when Red Rocks closes at 2 if there’s a performance. I was so disappointed when we couldn’t see the stage area. Why else would you go?? Mike was fine as a guide. He wasn’t as tuned into guests needs as I expected. I was uncomfortably warm in the van. I did ask for more AC. He could have cooled the van down before we met back to continue. Overall it felt like wasted precious time in Denver. Disappointed.
