Breathtakingly Beautiful Rocky Mountain National Park in mid-to-late September

We were very fortunate to catch Rocky Mountain National Park on a perfect weather day on the day before Autumn began. The leaves were beginning to change, some snow had fallen at the top of the mountain range the day before and cleared just enough so that we could drive up to 12k feet in elevations for stunning views. Gabor (aka "G-man" or "G-sauce") was a fantastic tour guide -- incredibly informative, well-organized, and genuinely very kind. He was flexible to stop and stay longer at places when the group requested it, yet he was also very timely in making sure the group saw all the places he had planned for us. An awesome experience and one that I highly recommend for anyone who wants to see as much of Rocky Mountain National Park in one day without the stress of planning.

Getting to the top above the tree line and feeling the cold fresh air. Breathtaking. Our tour guide Ryan was very informative, gave us all kinds of fascinating information all along the way. Took us to an area where we were able to see elk. It is a trip we will remember for a very long time.

Highly recommend this tour if you want to see the park and beautiful views but are not a hiker! Mike was a great guide with lots of information. You are provided with plenty of water and a nice sandwich from Sprouts.

Great trip with a great guide

We began our trip from Union Station in downtown Denver, and our guide Jed was fantastic right out of the gate. Very knowledgeable, with interesting history and stories about Colorado, from Denver to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Jed kept us on time and was very organized, and we were fortunate enough to have a beautiful day/weather for our tour. We especially enjoyed visiting Horseshoe Park/Alluvian Fan, with a nice picnic lunch. This trip includes a lot of stops for viewing and photos, but is not designed for intense hiking (which was fine for us). Along our journey in the park we saw Elk several times, with good opportunities for picture taking. I would definitely recommend this trip for a nice, easy day,

We had an excellent fun time with Kyle our tour guide , he explained every thing so well, it seems to me that I was reading a history book because he was so knowledgeable about the area; mountains , animal life and people that contributed to the development of this great state of Colorado.

Nice van. Driver was on time to pick us up in Boulder. Driver laid out the agenda well before we left. Our driver Jed was courteous. One recommendation would have been a little less talking the first part of the trip and let the group enjoy the scenery. One suggestion would be to admit at times not sure of the answer to the various questions.

Worth it.

The scenery was very nice. It was nice to enjoy the park and have someone else drive. Tour guide was knowledgeable but sometimes talked too much. Let us enjoy the serenity of where we are. I suggest under promise the wildlife sightings. Setting the expectations too high at the start can often lead to disappointment.
