Rebecca W.

United Kingdom

Tour: #321552, Colorado Gold Rush - A private Tour out of Denver, Denver, Colorado, United States    view tour
Date: Sep 12/19

We had an absolutely fantastic time with Dawn on our Gold Rush tour! We enjoyed the selection of destinations that she chose and the route she took, first scenic and then speedy (on the way back) so we got to see different views. When I mentioned that my husband really loves dinosaurs she added a short stop at Dinosaur Ridge to see just a few of the nearby sites, which he absolutely adored! She's really knowledgeable about everywhere we went, and I don't think we had a single question she couldn't answer.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rebecca! It makes a great day for me when my guests are really interested in what we are seeing and doing. You made it easy!

George Bagdon

PALM SPRINGS, CA, United States

Tour: #380985, Rocky Mountain National Park Private Tour, Denver, Colorado, United States    view tour
Date: Jul 14/19

Dawn toured us 10 hours in the Rocky Mountains National Park. She was very flexible, stopping at places to take the best pictures along the way. She even brought delicious picnic lunches for us which we ate aside a lake near the Continental Pass. She went out of her way to accommodate our requests and made sure that we didn't miss our dinner reservations in Denver. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone who wants an enjoyable day trip with a personable guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you George! You and Neil make it easy to have a great day

Aurora L.


Tour: #321552, Boulder and Beyond, Denver, Colorado, United States    view tour
Date: Feb 4/19

I wanted to see as much as I could of CO in 1 day & to have Dawn (which happens to be Latin for Aurora) be my guide was just fate. She knew I was on a quest to visit anywhere named Aurora and went out of her way to find the best photogenic city limits sign in Aurora and surprise me. We then hit Red Rocks Park, Golden Mile, Boulder - with a healthy lunch by the falls there, snowy hike around Mud Lake, Central City, ghost town Nevadaville and Nederland's joyful Carousel of Happiness. Twas a wonderful day tx

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Aurora! You are a breath of fresh air on a winter day! I loved spending the day with you.

Tour: #319969, In the footsteps of Dinosaurs Private Tour from Denver, Denver, Colorado, United States    view tour
Date: May 29/18

Dawn gave my family a great tour. She was very flexible and worked with my schedule. She even packed a cooler with cold water and baked some cookies to share. She's very knowledgeable about the area and gave us a lot of background that we would have missed out on had we ventured off on our own. I would highly recommend a tour with Dawn.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Simon! It was my pleasure to spend time with you and your family!

In spite of our late booking of the tour Dawn was very flexible with the content. We had a great late afternoon visiting several places around Golding. Dawn gave us perfect amount of time and information about history and nature at each stop.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lena! It really was my pleasure to show your family my favorite places and get to know you.

Our guide Dawn met us in our hotel lobby with a cheerful smile and gave us a quick overview of the tour. She

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeannette! I thoroughly enjoyed showing you my city. There is so much to see and do and the spring snow made it shine in a different way. Thank you both for your enthusiasm.

Jill Laudick

Tour: #380985, Rocky Mountain National Park, Denver, Colorado, United States    view tour
Date: Dec 9/17

Dawn was amazing! She was courteous, knowledgeable, friendly and fun to hang out with! She went above and beyond what I expected. The tour of RMNP was beyond amazing. I'd never done a guided tour before. I've been the driver my last several vacations, and so much is missed when you are the driver. Dawn made sure we were able to do exactly what we wanted and made my son and me feel very special. Dawn's private tour was an experience that will be treasured forever. I highly recommend Dawn!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jill! I really enjoyed having the opportunity to just kick back and enjoy my favorite places with you. You and John were so much fun and easy to spend the day with. Your excitement is contagious! I loved that the elk were out, too. The "off season" is really one of the best times to go to Rocky Mountain National Park because fewer people are there and every season has something special to offer. Thank you for the kind words!

Tour: Mt Evans to Trail Ridge Road, Denver, Colorado, United States
Date: Sep 3/17

Dawn was very informative and was accomodating all our questions since long before the scheduled tour dates. She was punctual and well versed on the items of the itenerary who gave detailed clarifications on our way. Though one of the main attractions (the glacier lakes) had to be skipped due to local conditiins on day 2, the tour was a complete success. We felt completely relaxed 2 full days as the tour was flexible to our needs. We were impressed by the picnic lunch personally arranged for us by Dawn

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sathyajith! I had a wonderful time with your family and friends. The smoke from the wildfires did have impact on our driving to the tops of the mountains for the big views. My pleasure was watching the families play in the rivers and climb rocks. To me, that is what vacations are all about! Dawn

Prompt response to prep emails. Safe driver. Made good use of time. Interesting locations visited, adapted as circumstances required. Good conversationalist. Provided fine picnic on banks of babbling brook on Day 3. Best ToursByLocals guide we have had (out of about 7). Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David & Liz! I very much enjoyed spending time with you. It was as if time slowed down so we were able to fully enjoy each day. Your stories were amazing! Thanks again!
