I loved this tour! Our guide Aaron was brilliant, knowledgeable about the Park and its ecosystem, and wanted to ensure we had the best experience possible (and was a great photographer!). The tour gives you plenty of time to see the Park and enjoy the unique environment, while also stopping in local areas for souvenir shopping if you wish. I had a great time and I’m really glad I chose to book this tour, thank you!

Our tour guide Mike is very knowledgeable and helpful, he introduced all kinds of background stories during the trip. Besides that, he also leaves enough time for restrooms, gift shops and lunch, which made this trip really comfortable. Plus the view there is amazing! This trip is definitely one of our most memorable trip!

Late cancellation

None. Unfortunately the trip was cancelled early on the morning of scheduled perhaps due to snow although no reason was given.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Hi Ann, I apologize if you felt left out of the loop. We had our biggest snowstorm of the year and were unable to operate any tours. When we reached out to our clients to notify them we tried to emphasize this. Since we're at the highest point in the country, weather can be extremely unpredictable and violent, like it was in this case. I would love to connect with you to right this.

Most memorable was just being able to explore certain bits and just being able to play with snow with the family.
