Breathtaking Scenery

From pickup to drop off, this was a very fun and adventurous day. We really enjoyed all of the stops, including Red Rocks Amphitheater, Evergreen and the summit of Mt. Blue Sky. Kyle, our tour guide, was exceptional. His outdoor background and past experience put us all at ease and really added value to the tour. His enthusiasm for the beauty of the area was contagious and he took very good care of us. It's not every day one gets to drive up a 14000 foot mountain. Breathtaking! Along the way we stopped for a nice picnic lunch.......the sandwiches supplied were delicious. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who just has a day or two to explore the area just outside Denver.

Wow, just wow! If you really want to see the beauty of the mountains in the Denver area and have a rare experience to summit a "14er", then take this tour. Aaron was our driver/guide (and a great personal photographer too). He's so enthusiastic, you can tell how much he loves his job and nature in general. He had so much knowledge and random trivia to share. He also made an effort to get to know each of the guests and relate parts of the trip to each of our personal visits. The meetup spot was easy to find, and the check-in process was smooth. We had as much time as we needed at each stop, and Aaron ensured we were acclimating to the altitude as we progressed higher & higher. The lunch of a turkey sandwich, chips, and cookies hit the spot. We were also able to refill our water as much as we needed. We were fortunate to see bighorn sheep, marmots, mountain goats, a herd of elk, and a golden eagle! Aaron pulled over so we could actually watch the wildlife for a bit. At the summit, a few of us chose to do the final short hike to the very top -- the view was amazing. We had several minutes up there to enjoy the experience until it started to rain & hail (!!!). Such a great time and highly recommended.

Paul and Ty (not sure if this is the right spelling, sorry!) were amazing! They really made this trip memorable. We visited a lot of places and did a lot. They took care of us and were very accommodating. They were fun and professional. Great experience. Would highly recommend it!

Aaron was our guide; he is fabulous! His knowledge of the area and understanding of the ecosystem is amazing. There wasn’t any question he couldn’t answer. He was also very attentive to altitude acclimation, making frequent stops and explaining what to expect and steps to help us adjust. Aaron has an outgoing and empathetic personality; not only was he informative but he also made the trip personal for each of us. He was fun and witty and the best tour guide we’ve ever had. His mom should be very proud of the talented young man that she’s raised!

Phillip, our guide was very informative, fun and had the eye from helping us see and get the most out of our 8 hours with him. He was very attentive to the fact I'm old and needed help in and out of the van! Red Rocks Amphitheater was awe inspiring and Mount Evans was beautiful!

Mt. Evans Tour

Kyle was an amazing guide. He was funny and was happy to share his knowledge of Colorado with us. The scenery was beautiful. The drive to Mt. Evans was a little scary but well worth it. Seeing the bighorn sheep was fun. Definitely recommend Aspire Tours. You won’t be disappointed.

Kyle was a great guide - shared lots of knowledge as we ventured to each stop and shared advice on what to do at each to get the most out of the time spent there. Very comprehensive tour if you're short on time but want to check out Colorado nature. Highly recommend! Views were amazing.

This tour exceeded my expectations. The red rock amphitheater was awesome. Mount Evans landscape was beautiful. Our guide Jed was friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and a safe driver. The lunch was simple but good quality. I highly recommend this tour. I would like to do this again in a different season, just to see different colors.

My family and I enjoyed this tour. Our guide Kyle was pleasant, funny and knowledgeable. Only disappointment was we purchased tickets for tour and then a few days later tickets went on sale and we didn’t receive price adjustment which would’ve saved us $67 in total and during these times really would’ve helped.
