Casual tour with beautiful views
The tour takes you to the red rock amphitheater, the town of evergreen, and echo lake. The views are amazing. The small group keeps it intimate.
Our tour guide was Will. He was informative, friendly, and made the tour an even more enjoyable experience. Ask for him by name!!

Farewell Foothills
A friend got me a gift card when I moved here 3 years ago, to get to know the city. Well, a bunch of things happened. Today I finally got out with Josh and 8 other interested adventurous types. Learned more about Denver in the first 10 minutes than I ever knew. Sure, partly on me, partly Josh was great.

I had originally booked Boulder Brews and Views for a bit of a hike and, yanno, refreshment. They didn't have critical mass and offered a free upgrade to the full day Rocky tour. I have other stuff to do before I move, so Foothills it was. We went from iconic Union Station, over to Red Rocks. Nice to see that museum with time to spare, instead of while I'm in line for the ladies'. Then off along Bear Creek to Evergreen. Did the 1.8 miles around the lake in the sunshine, back in the van for lariat looping over to Lookout. For some reason I'd never been to Buffalo Bill's grave, there are nice views from that side. Today it also turned out the smoke line was north of us there, so a Boulder tour would have been less fun anyway.

Thanks Josh! Hope they got you your tip from the rest of the gift card! 👍👍

Fun day trip!
Phillip was great, a very sweet guy, contained a lot of knowledge about our locations. The sights we saw were super worth it, although there wasn’t much time to spend in each place. But overall, great experience that’s totally worth it!

Fun and Engaging time!
Aug. 2021
Shay was AWESOME! She not only put her public speaking degree to great use, but she is a wealth of knowledge about a host of different Colorado topics - everything from flora and fauna to Buffalo Bill and historical trivia. Truly fun! The ride was smooth and enjoyable; the views were incredible; the option to move or relax was great for the variety of people on the tour. Did I mention how amazing Shay was? Engaging and someone I'd befriend. If you're looking for something fun to do that can accommodate the whole family.

Pick up at Union Station made it easy for an out of towner. My only issue is that mask rule was not enforced. I did not like ride in a vehicle with unmasked people who were coughing 🥴

Gentry was amazing. We loved how much information she gave us about each place we went to. We had a great time on our tour. It was nice to get out of the city and see some really great places. Definitely would do it again. I would recommend it.
