Blissful 😊

This was an amazing tour. The group was on the small side so everyone was able to get to know one another. Our guide, Will was very knowledgeable about Colorado and provided great insights about the state. It was a great experience and I'd recommend to anyone wanting to see the mountain side. Will was also very friendly and prepared for the trip. The ginger chews he had for my partner's nausea was great. Be prepared for the elevation folks!

Nothing spectacular, not very bad either

I personally felt the price paid for the tour was a bit steep considering that it was just a drive that went up the mountains. The tour mentions something about visiting the 'Historical Society of Idaho Springs & Visitor Center' - but we were never taken there and neither was it mentioned during the tour.

Top of the world views over 14,000 ft., cirques, multiple glacial lakes...tough crowd. Sorry you didn't enjoy it...our apologies.

Good, but not great.

Summit of Mount Blue Sky was the only + thing! Cowboy Frank, our guide, tried his best to entertain us by jokes and stories, and some historical events. The company itself is not too good in planning the spots for the tour. Again, its not too bad but compared to other tours in Denver was pretty expensive with the added cost for lunch and tips.

The experience as a whole was great! The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the summit and answered all of our questions, if she didn’t know the answer she would make the effort to look it up.

Incredible Views

Would definitely recommend taking this tour. Reservations are required to enter the park and driving on the roads is easier said than done. It was nice having a tour guide driving us so we could enjoy the stunning views. We also did get to see some wildlife on the tour.

This was our first visit to Denver and I am so glad we did this excursion! We had a very comfortable ride to the mountain and our tour guide, Kristen, shared many interesting facts and stories about the area. We made stops at many beautiful sites, and the summit of Mt. Evans was absolutely incredible. We saw amazing scenery and wildlife throughout the day, and then stopped for lunch in Idaho Springs, a charming mountain town. Most importantly, the trip felt very personal - our guide truly got to know each of us while keeping us safe and comfortable. I highly recommend this tour!

Worthwhile Trip

The tour was great. A scenic trip to the top of Mt. Evans (fifth highest paved road in the world) and all the sights along the journey made the excursion well worth the time and money. Beautiful scenery, an abundance of wildlife, comfortable transportation (about 12 people), and excellent commentary by the guide made the trip enjoyable. The guide used a microphone in the van which made listening to her a pleasant experience ... although that accommodation sounds like a no brainer, I went on a tour (with a different provider) in the same size van and the guide had to yell (over the air conditioning) for people in the back to hear. Not enjoyable for the passengers.
