    Ty was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The day didn't start off the best, the tour got cut in half since one of the tour guides called in sick in the last minute, so there was a delay figuring out who will end up going and who will have to re-schedule/given a refund. Luckily, I was able to go despite warnings that the weather won't be the best (it wasn't), however, I still think it was worth the trip. I'm glad I experienced the Rocky Mountains. Great views. Saw some wildlife. Some rain, but nothing too bad. Bring a jacket/pants just in case. Highly recommend.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Rocky Mountain National Park. We had a wonderful and friendly tour guide named Steve. He had many interesting facts about the areas we were passing through and then about the park and animals as well. He took us to many stops in the park where we could view (and take photos) of the magnificence of the mountains, a couple of waterfalls and even some animals. We saw two herd of elk, moose and mule deer. The day held all we had hoped for. We will always remember it. Thank you Steve, Aspire Tours and Viator.

    Kyle was a great tour guide. He made sure everyone was safe and engaged. The best part of the tour was when the whole tour bus saw a bull moose! Kyle was like a kid in a candy shop!😂 He also made sure there were plenty of bathroom breaks. The lunch was delicious. Our picnic spot was near a waterfall! Professional and courteous driver.

    Our tour guide, Kyle, made the entire experience even more wonderful than it already was. Not only did he bring us to the most beautiful parts of the Rocky Mountain National Park, but he was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the surrounding geography, history, plants, and animals.

    Ty was our guide. He had great deal of knowledge regarding fauna and flora of the region which was interesting. He stopped at quite a few key places for us to have a good idea of the place. Lunch was good. Our request for vegetarian food was accommodated. Overall a wonderful experience.

    We enjoyed the trip from beginning to end: the history, the geology, and the stops provided. Excellent guide! Money well spent. You don't have worry about obtaining a timed entry to the park or keeping your eyes on the road while driving. There is walking just not strenuous hiking. Thanks Jeff for being a knowledgeable guide.

    I had such a great day in Rocky! Ty was a fantastic guide and I learned so much about the park during our trip. He was also eager to chat about recommendations for other hikes in the area. I highly recommend this tour and hope you too get to see a moose, elk, and a bald eagle on your trip.
