We enjoyed the 4 hour tour very much. Tour van accommodated 10 people, everyone wore mask in the van. Red rock Amphitheatre is amazing, bear creek trail hiking is about 3/4 miles, fun to walk along the creek. Our guide Steve is excellent and hard working. We learned a lot about John Denver, Buffalo Bill, Golden, Coors, Colorado Spring mountain water, etc.

We ended up having to go on our own because they told they didn’t have enough space for us a day before even though we book a week earlier. They attempted to accommodate us but then informed us that the tour guide had an emergency and could not give us the tour the day of.

Hello Cynthia, we are very sorry we were not able to accommodate your group. Our industry is a very dynamic one and sometimes things just don't work out the way we want them to. We know this was not a good experience for you. We also can honestly say that we were trying really hard to make it happen for your group and had nothing but good intentions. I hope you still got to enjoy the rest of your time here and hopefully you will give us another chance in the future.

Great tour! My tour guide Gentry was the best. She provide lots of history and knowledge about the different areas and even walked us to Lake Evergreen. Gentry was friendly and approachable. She had time to take pictures for our group at each stop. She even pulled over to the side of the road for us to see a family of elk in Evergreen. I Ioved the story about the Beatles performing at Red Rock Amphitheater for $6 in 1964. I truly enjoyed my experience and I traveled solo. Thank you Gentry!
