We were th3 only 3 onboard . Will was great . He took photos for us and went into great detail about the different places and history of where we were . He was aware of my motion sickness possibility on winding roads , and he drove very cautiously around them to try and avoid any illness to me !
I was visiting Denver for a few days with friends and we took this half day tour. Can’t say enough how enjoyable the tour was with Kristen, our knowledgeable guide from Colorado Sightseeing, keeping us informed of the local history, geography, geology and ecology. Nice balance of driving and spending time at Red Rocks, Evergreen and Echo Lake. Also had a couple of unscheduled stops to take photos of a herd of deer and the gorgeous gold hued Aspens. Kristen provided bottled water and snacks during the tour....a nice touch! Look forward to one of their full day tours next time I’m in Denver. Highly recommend the tour and tour company
This tour is amazing if you want to see 3 major breathtaking Colorado sights on a budget, without a lot of hiking or having to spend the entire day on a tour. Getting a beer or coffee at the cute little town of Evergreen was also a nice stop. Our tour guide, Curt, was so friendly and knowledgeable, as well as very patient with wrangling our rag tag group of people throughout the tour. He made sure that we had enough time at each stop to take in the view and get a lot of photos. I highly recommend this one!!
