    Great 3 hours.
    , Oct 2021
    Bruce was very knowledgable about RMNP and made the trip very enjoyable. Although we were not able to see any elk in RMNP Bruce made sure we got to see them by going to the golf course in Estes Park where we saw about 50 of them. The tour was definitely a very worthwhile experience and we were able to see a lot of the park in a relatively short amount of time.
    Terrific tour

    Bruce was a great guide. We had been in RMNP for several days and done a fair bit of hiking. Bruce was able to concentrate on areas we hadn't seen or add more understanding to areas we had seen. He recommended the Gem Lake trail which was a great trail for us.

    First time in Rocky Mountain National Park and it was exquisite including snow in October. Bruce was the best guide -extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the park. We learned so much.

    Wonderful Experience!

    Amazing afternoon tour! We were traveling with a baby and Bruce was beyond accommodating. We just strapped the car seat into his vehicle and we were off! We were able to stop whoever we wanted and loved being able to learn way more about the park than if we were just on our own. Many thanks for a wonderful day in Estes!

    Bruce was very informative and excellent host. We saw a lot of the park in just three hours including a large elk herd on the alpine ridge.
    Awesome tour of the Rockies!

    Bruce gave us an awesome tour of the Rockies. He made sure we saw a number of native animals, took us to the Continental Divide (we told him we wanted to see it.) The kids and I enjoyed the trip and all the information he provided about the park and wildlife. Would recommend it!

    Thank you and I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour!
    Wonderful private tour of Rocky Mountain National Park
    , Jul 2021
    Bruce was a wonderful story teller, historian and host. One of the best tours we have ever taken- he customized it to our needs and was very responsive to our concerns about altitude sickness that my husband had just experienced. Thank you, Bruce / great job. We highly recommend him.
    Excellent tour

    Had a great time - professional guide who was quickly responsive to pre-tour questions making the experience stress free. Excellent story teller as we toured the Park. Highly recommend
    Excellent afternoon with a knowledgeable guide!
    , Jul 2021
    Bruce was an excellent guide. We spoke with him a few days before our trip and told him some of the things we wanted to do in the park (see waterfalls, see the Continental Divide). We did all of that... and also saw some elk, bighorn sheep, and other animals! Bruce suggested that we do Bear Lake on our own after the tour, since it gets very crowded during the day. This was a great suggestion! Another advantage of going with Bruce is that since he's a certified guide, we did not need to make a reservation for the park. (We did need to pay the park admission/use our annual pass.) Overall, it was a great day.
