Traveler Tips


  • "The hike to the glacier is a bit strenuous if you are not used to hiking at high altitude, but it is fairly short, and the scenery at the top is so worth it." See review
  • "Make sure to bring a warm jacket as temps are a lot cooler once you drive an hour out of Denver up into the mountain areas." See review
  • "If you are thinking about this, just do it - wont regret and its totally worth it!" See review

The best trip we had in Colorado so far!

Breanne is our tour guide for this trip. She is super thoughtful and brought extra clothes, gloves for us. She is also very knowledgeable of the environment, Denver history . She took us to St Mary’s Glacier and I will say that was the most adventurous hike we ever had in our life. Breanne took a lot of great pictures of us. She took us to the hot spring after the lunch, which was another fantastic experience. We came out nice and fully relaxed. This is a great excursion and I highly recommend to adventurous couples or groups.

Awesome tour!

With how reasonable the price is, I am surprised this company is able to keep the size of the group at 4 max. Our group all showed up early. Unfortunately two of them (see Caroline's review below) had to drive themselves because they were short on time. So it was just another person and I in the car with our guide Ariel. I signed up for this tour mainly for the glacier hiking. It did not disappoint. If you are a serious hiker, this may not be for you as it is less than 2 miles out and back. I can totally see why the company picks this trail as it is absolutely beautiful and it accommodates everyone's ability. Caroline's mom was celebrating her 60th birthday. Ariel was amazingly patient with her, at the same time never gave out the vibe that the other people in the group were ignored. Everyone in the group got some great photos. We then went to the cave for some hot spring fun. It wasn't my thing but I did it for the experience. The water was too hot for me so I moved to the pool shortly after. We then went into town for some pizza. There was a long wait on Sunday, which gave us an opportunity to walk around town and get some souvenirs. A few comments: 1) I would love to see other options, something like another hike after St Mary's instead of the hot spring. Nothing wrong with the hot spring though, the rest of my group loved it. Just wasn't my thing personally 2) Ariel is the star and it sounds like this is a young company. I will definitely go on other tours with this company when I return to Colorado. 3) Please tip your guides appropriately. With these booking sites taking a commission and the owner gets a cut, as well as paying entrance fees to the hot springs, there isn't much left for the guides, especially with such small groups. I have gone on many tours around the world and usually offer to pay for lunch if a guide takes us to a restaurant. I felt horrible not offering because Ariel brought her own lunch. Then I realized she was probably just trying to save money, not that she didn't enjoy the food at the restaurant. Don't make the mistake I made! I would recommend offering to pick up the tab for your guide! I am not a huge review person as bad reviews affect a person's livelihood and great reviews drive up the demand and prices. But Ariel and the company are young entrepreneurs trying to grow a business they are passionate about. Ariel genuinely made you feel you are just on a trip with a friend. It's easy to root for good people like that. Writing a good review is the least I can do. I will be a return customer for sure!

Absolutely everything deserves a 5 stars review ! Ariel was so sweet and helpful. I went with my mom, that had a bit of a hard time going up to the glacier and she was with us the whole time taking it slow for her and helping her out. The glacier was absolutely breathtaking and the cave pools were a very cool experience although very hot! The good thing is that you have different options depending on your tolerance, it is definitely relaxing and specially after a hike like that. I would absolutely do this again and recommend it !

Ariel and Trey were amazing guides! So knowledgeable and fun. The entire trip was so much fun and the views were magnificent. I went at the end of September and was fine wearing a light long sleeve and long leggings. It was the perfect weather. They provide snacks (granola bars) and take pictures on the tour that are sent to you by email. The hot springs were soooo nice. I would recommend bringing flip flops/slip-on sandals to wear while in there so you’re not barefoot. Pizza was amazing! Highly recommend and would for sure do this again!

It was a gorgeous day on the Glacier - we couldn't be any more happier with our wonderful tour guide Bree. She made sure we were all well taken care of and guided us to the best little spots on the mountain. It was fun, exciting and who could say no to some of the best pizza I've ever tasted!

Loved that we had a Private Hike beside the Falls, some of the Path is undiscovered by the Crowd - able to take Beautiful Photos 😍 Tyler & Bree truly made it a Wonderful Experience. We are world travelers who appreciated the “best pizza/company”… Kudos 🤩
