The tour guide (Nick) was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. He provided excellent recommendations, offered to take pictures and made extra stops for us to see more. The trip in itself is great, we saw the Lily Lake, stopped to eat lunch at our own pace and then ventured into the beautiful Rocky Mtns forest. Overall it is a great trip especially in winters where you can sit back and enjoy the snowy scenes and hear all about your surroundings from a great guide!

I cannot recommend this experience highly enough. Our guide, Ariel, was superb and made sure everyone in the group was included. The hike is beautiful with breathtaking scenery and the Geothermal pools help you warm up afterwards! This was the highlight of my trip to Denver and I would definitely do this again. Ariel, thank you for making the day so much fun!

Really cool experience! And definitely good for the whole family. The people were very friendly. The artwork inside the church was beautiful! I highly recommend this as a fun & unique thing to do if you’re in Denver.

Will was a great tour guide and was very knowledgeable, which made the trip even more enjoyable! The views were so amazing in part to him knowing the best spots. So happy we chose to take the tour :)

Clues were fun and bit of history was interesting. Good way to down a few hours with friends.
