Beautiful mountains and rocks. There was little recognition of the first nations people who lived in the area for thousands of years prior to European invasion. The lunch was delicious. The bus driver Darcy was very good at his job.

The driver was very experienced which was very helpful in such difficult terrain.The guide superb: very knowledgeable, considerate of our needs, answered all questions very well! Excellent!I just wish they had pointed out to the travelers that the tip was NOT included as some passengers were from countries were this is not a custom. Others were just plain cheap!The trip was excellent! I am suggesting it to my friends as it is so much easier and more fun to do it with a guided tour than in a car oneself. Also the lunch was so much more tasty than sandwiches from home!Thanks a million for such a wonderful day!!!

This was very enjoyable and almost exactly what I needed to give me an overview of the Rockies. Very careful and safe driver and a knowledgeable and pleasant guide. However, the stops were just photo stops really. I was expecting to get out and explore more so that was disappointing.

ITINERARY

Discover why the Rocky Mountains of Colorado are the object of so many people's affections on this full-day tour. You’ll see the best of the best; majestic mountains, wildlife you’ve only ever seen on TV, and views like nothing you’ve ever witnessed. Departing Denver, the full scope of the Rockies lies before you as you begin the ascent toward adventure. Drive over Berthoud Pass, summiting the Continental Divide and sitting at 11,314 feet above sea level for gorgeous mountain views.

As you descend along curving roads it’s nearly impossible to take your eyes off the ever-changing and incredible alpine scenery.
Winter Park, a classically cozy Colorado ski town tucked against the western slope of the Divide, is home to one of the state’s most popular ski resorts. Enjoy the town, exploring quaint shops and breathing in the pine-scented air while visiting the scenic town of Grand Lake for lunch. Somehow food just tastes better in the fresh mountain air, and you’ll enjoy yours at a fabulous little lakeside café nestled along the actual Grand Lake.

The final, and arguably most scenic, destination is Rocky Mountain National Park. Full of wildlife, breathtaking views and more photo opportunities than your camera will know what to do with, this park is a feast for the senses and a nature-lover’s dream. On Trail Ridge Road, you may even find yourself higher than you’ve ever been before at 12,183 feet above sea level! Your return trip to Denver is the perfect chance put your feet up, reflect on your day and decide which of your photos will make your friends the most jealous.
