Beautiful Adventure For The Less Active
Emelia_D

Alex was such a phenomenal tour guide! Really made the whole trip wonderful with his charisma and knowledge of the mountains. Everything was on time and this tour is great for those who want to see the gorgeous Rocky Mountain Views with extremely minimal hiking. Perfect for the city dwellers looking for an adventure. I thought 10 hours was going to be exhausting, but each view was breathtaking and you sit comfortably in an air conditioned van from spot to spot and each location had a bathroom so I had no problems trying to stay hydrated with the altitude. Highly recommend and will be booking another tour with the Colorado Sightseer the next time I visit Colorado.

Best Way to see Rocky Mountain National Park

This tour was amazing! It was great to not worry about a reservation into the park ( tour takes care of that. Included in the pkg). Also don’t have to worry about the driving which made it so relaxing. Stopped at serval places to view the scenery, take pictures, and restroom breaks. Saw a moose and marmots. Tour guide would stop when we saw wildlife and let us take pictures. Stephanie our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Met some very nice people on the tour. Would highly recommend!

Elk! Moose! The only issue is that pur tour guide forgot to pick up 2 tourists in Boulder so had to go get them while we stayed in Lyons for 45 minutes. No stores were open so we just had to wander around. Because of this setback we did not eat lunch until 3pm and by then we were starving. Otherwise, great experience!

Cowboy Frank was a wonderful tour guide! He provided fun and informative commentary and really helped shape the experience. Stopping along Trail Ridge Rd was great and I appreciated the chance to independently explore. Lunch was delicious in a lovely place, too. Would have appreciated more time in Estes Park but overall had a great experience!

Bad tour guide great views
Catherine_A

The Rocky Mountains are outstanding and amazing! But our tour guide was really just a driver. He held personal conversations with passengers for most of this all day trip. We would have appreciated a tour guide who told us about the scenery, the geography and the history and folklore of the area. Overall, we were disappointed with the tour but not the park.

Incredible Tour - Cannot recommend enough!
Rhian_P

The whole experience was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and shared so much interesting information throughout the tour. It was a perfect way to see the Rockies for someone who has never been before. The van was extremely comfortable and as the only solo traveller I got to ride shotgun which was awesome. We had a lovely lunch in the most beautiful setting; a tasty sandwich, chips and homemade cookies. There was ice cold water available at all times which was great for the altitude and heat. The Rockies themselves are absolutely breathtaking, the scenery is stunning and we got to see some wonderful wildlife. The stop in Estes Park and the Stanley Hotel were also incredible and a real experience. I cannot recommend the tour enough, I'd love to return in fall and if I did this would be the company I booked with for sure. Thank you for an amazing day!
