Half Day Private Tour for up to 3 people - Morning or Afternoon


We will spend 4 hours in and around Estes Park, looking for elk, landmarks and local shopping. This can be a morning or afternoon tour, keeping in mind the seasons and availability of daylight.

Stop spots can include, but are not limited to:
Stanley Hotel - Stephen King wrote the book 'The Shining' while staying here!
Shopping in Estes Park
Driving around to see the sights - area canyons are beautiful drives
Viewing "Chapel on a Rock" - Camp Saint Malo Catholic Retreat

This will be a walking only tour, no hiking though, dressing in layers is recommended. Bring a water bottle also, even in the winter months. Cameras are encouraged and if you have them, a wide angle lens and a tripod! If not, you will still be able to get some great shots!

Shops in Estes Park include some unique shops that create blown glass, clothing, souvenir items, local artisan jewelry and other distinct artwork. As well as, the renowned Stanley Hotel!

Itinerary

Morning tours would start by meeting in Estes Park. From there I will handle the transportation and we can begin either with the shopping or with the driving through some area canyons and seeing "Chapel on a Rock" - Camp Saint Malo Catholic Retreat, where Pope John Paul II stayed while visiting Colorado. We will also visit the Stanley Hotel and hear about the amazing history, both real and fictional! We will end back in Estes Park, never straying far from there.

Meeting location: We will meet Estes Park, Colorado. Or, travelers can request pick up in Denver for an additional fee.

Unexpected weather can develop in the mountains causing us to leave Rocky Mountain National Park though time can still be spent in Estes Park.
