Poor Customer Service
Paul_S
, Aug 2022
My husband and I were unable to go. We were suppose to fly into Denver Saturday night August 6. Our tour was Sunday August 7. Our flight was canceled and we were rescheduled to arrive in Denver Sunday night. I called and explained that due to cancelled flight we would not be there to take tour. We received email saying they would NOT BE ABLE TO REFUND OUR MONEY. We had no control over the canceled flight. This is poor customer service and we rill never book with Viator again.

Mental higiene day trip

Coming to Denver Colorado? Alright, let me help you out: The company: From the booking to itinerary I highly recommend this company whenever you come to Denver. The pictures shown are satisfactory and they deliver what is offered in their efficient website. The cost: fair price for a million dollar views you are about to see. Your hunger: oh you are about to eat one of the best sandwiches in town. Big, yummy and paired with chips. Our guide has chosen a pic nic spot making sure there were no bears around ;-) The guide: his name is Marc (yes, with C). A mountain connoisseur, competent driver - (wait until you go up the mountains and you will remember me), knows all “Instagram” trics (I mean, photography), kind to all of us an made sure we stay hydrated. What can go wrong when your guide loves it all? The tourists: I have to confess that I tend to be shy but the group has stolen my heart. What a good way to meet people. Get out on a tour :-). Besides, we were all engaged and in awe of Colorado’s nature. Final words: You’ve shown us how special a day can be. Ask Marc if I didn’t tell him that it was a mental higiene… it was. A BIG THANK YOU!

Excellent travel guide and driver who was entertaining and knowledgeable about not only the subject matter, but the city, too. Lunch was yummy sandwiches among the trees on the way to Pikes Peak. Not something you can do everyday. Our guide took special care with our health since we so so far up! I was a delight to let her do all the driving!

Garden of the Gods was beautiful. Worth the trip alone. Pikes peak was a edge of your seat ride with beautiful views and unbelievable drop offs on the road up. The lunch was good we were paired with a great group. Michelle was very knowledgeable, she made the ride to more entertaining. She also kept us informed along the way so we knew what to expect.
