It was a good time. I was soloing but it was nice talking with other people on the tour with me. My tour guide let us wandered off but had a specific time to get back to the van/bus. I know a lot of people won’t like that but it was nice because while traveling to the other places he would talk about things we are seeing outside. I will say that hiking/snow boots would be best to wear when heading to the mountains! It also gets pretty cold. Overall, I had a great experience with the tour. Definitely worth checking out!!

Our tour to Breckenridge was wonderful! Christine, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and we learned so much at each stop. This tour is a great option for those who want to see the highlights of Red Rocks, the Continental Divide and a gorgeous ski town in a short amount of time. Great addition to our Denver itinerary and would definitely recommend!

Fantastic full day tour with a very knowledgeable local tour guide. Filled with great stops and learned a huge amount about the areas visited. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to see the foothills and Breckenridge on a relaxing easy paced day tour from Denver.

Excellent excursion, complete and very well programmed. We learned a lot with the guide (Roman if I remember correctly) and also laughed a lot. The quality to price ratio is excellent.

Exceeded expectations! Roman was an excellent guide.
