Steve was a very good tour guide, if he had a microphone and loudspeaker so we could have heard more, he would have been an excellent tour guide. That's the only reason I did not give this excursion of five.

Steve knows a lot! The ride was comfortable, just enough stops along the way. Time to do a little shopping, grab a coffee and a snack. Also, nice nature walking. Good for people who want a taste of nature, but don’t want a full day excursion

Highly recommend this trip! We had a day in Denver, so we didn’t want an all day excursion. This 5 hour trip was the perfect length of time. We saw all the spots on the itinerary and got a lot of history about each spot. Dylan was a great tour guide! Would highly recommend!

So worth the while!

So worth the while. We only had a half day and this tour was perfect. A beautiful drive to Red Rocks which is a must see. From the amphitheater we were taken on a scenic route through the park up to Evergreen, Co. a quaint town once known for logging. With the best coffee and a beautiful lake and damn. From there we drove further north to Lookout Mountain for spectacular views of the snow capped peaks - stunning in May. We then drove down through Golden Colorado on our return. Dylan, our guide, was very engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining. He narrated the entire journey, providing history, and fun anecdote facts. Dylan was an excellent guide. Everything about it was great!!

Me and my friend had a tight schedule to dive into the beautiful hills near denver. This trip was beautiful in terms of the scenic view and information about the cities and towns around denver. Our guide, Nick gave us an awesome experience with his knowledge about the places we visited as well as suggestions for fun things to do in denver.

Unprofessional company
Nita_S

I signed up for Foothills Explorer tour, but at the meeting point the guide told me I will be going on a different tour. I was not even given an explanation for this change. I should have been informed about this by the company earlier and given the option of a refund. I had hoped to go to the Lookout Mountain, see the Buffalo Bill museum and Denver mountain parks, amongst other things. Instead, all we saw was Clear Creek Canyon and Echo Lake with an unnecessary stop in the touristy Idaho Springs. I will never take a tour with this company again.
