Didn't go up into the mountains. To go into mountains you have to do the all day. So if you want to see mountains go on the all day tour

Hello Laura! Sorry to hear about your disappointment. The Rocky Mountain Afternoon Escape is designed to get people into the Rocky Mountains. In the summer we are able to go a bit further in. For the winter months we have a few routes to chose from and make our decision based on current road conditions. We hope you come back and join us on a tour again so we can take you even further.

I did not enjoy this tour. The tour guide was fine but the only good stop on the tour was the first one at Red Rock. We got 30 min there. Then we stopped at a creek with little scenery. Finally we stopped at Idaho Springs which was an extremely small old run down town. We stayed there for 1 hr and most of the businesses we closed or closed soon after arrival. Overall the tour did not match the description and was not worth the money.

Ryan took us out to Evergreen with stops at some very beautiful points of interest. He was very charismatic and knowledgeable. We will probably take the tour again, because each one could be different. Great value!

Having a guide that was so knowledgeable about Colorado was awesome. It helped us get to enjoy the scenes and everything else with a guide and someone else driving us! Would recommend for sure just to get you some tea Colorado mountain scenes
