Cowboy Frank was a excellent guide for our day in the mountains. He involved all his guests in getting to know him and each other in the trip up the mountain. He shared stories of being a Colorado native which were both entertaining and inciteful. He also had a wealth of knowledge regarding the mountains and how they were formed which he enjoyed sharing. Each stop was excellent for photos and potty breaks were frequent. The picnic lunch was delicious and the site for the lunch was beautiful. Frank was determined that we see plenty of wildlife and we did. What a perfect day. Thanks so much, Dona & JP

Our tour guide was super friendly and very knowledgeable on history of many things. Loved the lunch and all of our abilities to be able to get out of vehicle and take pictures. I would recommend more time in Estes Park (maybe an additional 15-30 minutes) and Stanley Hotel (15 minutes). Overall very nice tour.

Wonderful, easy day trip to experience Rocky Mountain National Park. Richard was an excellent, thoughtful guide. We saw elk & moose, had an idyllic picnic in a beautiful meadow, and had lots of chances to take short trails to viewpoints & scenic vistas.

Loved this tour. Full day and well worth the money and time. We started early to get into park, reversed toured by first visiting the areas single car tourists go to last... which meant no crowds and worked our way through the park, saving the lower areas for the afternoon when the wildlife is more active. Alex: our tour guide was very informative, funny, helpful and a great driver. He provided history about the area, cities, current growth and environmental issues. His back ground on the National park was spot on and he did everything possible to ensure we saw and experienced the best of nature, understood the impact of current issues affecting the park: beetles, fires, pollution, humans etc. A rutting Bull Moose was our highlight but the views were stunning for our very sunny and clear day. Rule# Wildlife will attack: we witnessed moose chasing other tourist/ people who got too close. Park Rangers even tried to warn those people. Lunch was excellent: the Chicken Salad sandwich is lightly spiced with curry and raisin... I swear the bread was homemade and delicious. Turkey, ham were also options. FYI: It's important to drink plenty of water... there are multiple restrooms available throughout the day. This is the real deal. Safety first and a tour guide that really knows his stuff, the area and the best ways to avoid crowds. I will definitely return to try the Peak to Peak tour in the fall.

Overall, it was a great, informative tour and a great way to see the Rocky Mountains for first time visitors. My only complaint was that the van was a bit cramped for an 8-hour tour.

Will did a fantastic job. Lots of personal stories about the wildlife in the area, made it very enjoyable. Anyone who is wanting to go up in the mountains and have a great time with no worries and no hassle absolutely should do this day trip. My wife and I loved it.
