Get up close and personal with a full day tour of Rocky Mountain National Park
My most popular tour! Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the most highly sought after experiences in the America's National Park System. This tour will not only take you to see the park's well-known highlights, but also to little-known corners of the park that only I offer. I have been visiting Rocky since I was a child to backpack, climb and hike.
Rocky Mountain National Park is the nation's third most visited National Park and is home to the iconic fourteen-thousand-foot Long's Peak. My tour will take you passed an unparalleled view of this notorious mountain and up to the tippy top of the Rocky Mountains - the Continental Divide. We'll have a delightful picnic followed followed by a short hike. Wildlife abounds and may be seen at several points during the tour. Of course, I don't hesitate to stop for pictures whenever the opportunity presents, and my geology background oozes through at every viewpoint.
Pick up at your home or hotel
Drive to Rocky Mountain National Park with a coffee/breakfast stop halfway, learning a little about Colorado's geologic and cultural history along the way.

Kyle was very friendly and adaptable to our needs. His knowledge about the tour details was outstanding. He was very respectful and considerate considering that we are not Americans. His driving was very appropriate and good. Considering the limits of the tour at the time (some areas were closed due to weather issues), he did a very good job!
