Excellent travel guide and driver who was entertaining and knowledgeable about not only the subject matter, but the city, too. Lunch was yummy sandwiches among the trees on the way to Pikes Peak. Not something you can do everyday. Our guide took special care with our health since we so so far up! I was a delight to let her do all the driving!

Beauty to desolation and everything in between.

Garden of the Gods was beautiful. Worth the trip alone. Pikes peak was a edge of your seat ride with beautiful views and unbelievable drop offs on the road up. The lunch was good we were paired with a great group. Michelle was very knowledgeable, she made the ride to more entertaining. She also kept us informed along the way so we knew what to expect.

Worst tour guide ever
Stephanie_S
, Aug 2021
Our "tour guide" was Jim. Tour wasn't offered as advertise. Tour guide show up late. We were supposed to spend 1 hour at Garden of Gods., he was complaining all the time about how full was everything. Make a 5 minute stop in a dangerous rode to take a few pics (never offered assistance) I told him the tour advertise 1 hr so he let us 20 mins at balance rock. Still not what I paid for. We went to Pike peaks. That was OK. Pretty much he was just a driver not a tour guide since never provide us any valuable experience. We were supposed to pass by Manitou Springs, didn't happen. Really bad tour guide, not friendly, not caring, not polite.

Dear Stephanie, thanks for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry your experience didn’t match your expectations. It was an uncommon instance and we’ll do better in the future. We will investigate who was your tour guide and make sure he takes retraining class. Please feel free to reach out our office with any further comments, concerns, or suggestions you wish to share. We would love to make things right if you give us another chance.

JAKE was Great! WOW Experience for us!!! The Van was comfortable & Lunch was Sufficient ;) He stopped to allow us to see Mtn Goats gracing. Although there were construction, it did not obstruct the Beauty of Pikes Peak 🤩

More of a driver than a guide
JSC
, Aug 2021
I was disappointed that no one (including the guide) was wearing masks, even though Viator’s instructions were that everyone was supposed to. We were all cramped in a van for several hours, so that was frustrating. While the guide was very friendly, he didn’t really tell us very much about either of the sites. We ended up just reading Wikipedia articles about them to learn more.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Dear customer, thank you for the review. We are terribly sorry we didn't meet your expectations. With great vaccination rate in Colorado masks are totally optional now, so we just follow the state COVID guidelines. Masks are always available in all our vehicles in case passengers want to use them. In addition, we sanitize all our vehicles after each tour. We will definitely make sure that the tour guide is retrained. Sorry again and please contact our office at (720)556-6164, so we can make it up to you.

Oxygen canister helpful
Lisa_H

Lots of beautiful scenery. Wish we would have had more time at Garden of the Gods though. I would definitely recommend an oxygen canister that you can get from Walmart for those going to Pikes Peak especially if you have lung issues or previous Covid. The donuts up there were nothing special but you should probably try one for yourself. Overall, it was an amazing tour.
