I booked John to show my family from Philippines around Colorado-Utah tour. I didn't go with them but they surely let me know how nice and accommodating John was. John would also give me text updates with pictures from time to time to let me know what were they up to. He even brought winter clothes/poles for my family to borrow. Best part of it all,my family loved that he's a photographer too and he took some really nice pictures of them. It's also an easy booking process with John.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I wish Kristine could have joined us on our 5-day winter adventure. I had a wonderful time showing her family the wilds Colorado and Utah. Four guests were over 60 years old and had never seen snow or ice, so it was a real pleasure to have them experience some very unique places, safely.

Did the RMNP tour with John. John was prompt in reply and attendance. Polite and courteous at all times. John is an excellent and diligent driver. As a guide, John is perfect. Knowledgable about the local area, geography, geology and wildlife. John is well equipped so don't let being from out of town hold you back. The tour is very mild in January. Wear boots though to stay dry. In temps 11-50 F and didnt need to use my gloves, snow pants or parka. The tour is very low exercise. Thanks John!

A great day. John clearly knows the area, and was wonderful connecting with the kids, sensing when they needed to warm up, take a break or just play. Highly recommend.

John was friendly, flexible, and has so much knowledge of the area that he imparted at every opportunity - we learned so much! We spent the day in the Rocky Mountain Park and John took us to many wonderful viewing areas, helped us with equipment for some of the hikes and happily spent a long day with us; he went above and beyond - it was the very best birthday I could ever have asked for!

This tour is awesome! I spent the day exploring RMNP and Estes Park with John. John came prepared for our snow day hiking (spikes for my boots, hand warmers, and water). RMNP was amazing even though we had a surprise October foggy snow day! We got to see a couple different herds of elk, magpies begging, and a few coyotes hunting! I felt totally comfortable traveling with John.

John was a fantastic guide throughout the greater Denver area. While we often differed to his knowledge of the area, John catered to our interests and constantly asked for feedback. He was always willing to spend more time in the areas where we had greater interest (Red Rocks and Boulder to name two). We never felt like we were just going through a checklist of locations. John was knowledgeable and personable. My family and I highly recommend his tour if you are ever in Denver.

We visited the Indian Peaks Wilderness and Rocky Mountain National Park with John. He has a wonderful easy-going personality and we had a great day! He took us to quite a few amazingly beautiful spots. He also pointed out places we may want to return to later in our trip. An added bonus: Johnknew which rest areas to visit and which to avoid!!! He also provided insights and helpful hints regarding photography which were much appreciated. Don't miss the opportunity to spend the day with John!

John tailor-made a tour so my mother could visit her childhood home of Boulder. It was exactly what she wanted. He accommodated all of her requests and attentively looked after her. The tour was the highlight of her Colorado vacation. I highly recommend him.

Fantastic guide! John was very professional and knowledgeable. When I mentioned we were interested in seeing some of the wildlife we spent the morning at Mount Evans where we saw mountain goats and female bighorn sheep- spotted herds of elk in the distance. John is also a professional photographer so shared his talents with this novice photographer! Then headed to Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park. We were amazed at the difference in topography between the two mountain chains. Enjoyable day/Exceptional guide.

We enjoyed the day touring the Rocky Mountains with John. He provided us with extensive commentary on the sites we saw and the areas we travelled through including Denver. We were lucky and had the opportunity to see Big Horn sheep up close on Mount Evans as well as other wildlife on our drive there and along Cedar Creek. It provided us with many fine memories as I had the opportunity to see the surrounding views rather than worry about driving, parking and etc.

We had a fantastic day with John on Wednesday. We were short on time and wanted to cover as much as we could. He picked us up early at our hotel and dropped us off at the airport. For the 8 hours in between, he showed us an incredible amount of CO and was a wealth of information! Thank you for a wonderful day!!

John was an amazing guide. This was my first experience with ToursByLocals and it was probably the best tour I have ever had, it was like I was hanging out with a friend. John had a lot of knowledge about all things nature in Rocky Mountain National Park and could answer all my questions. I got to see so much of the park including the animals and hiked as well. I feel like we covered it all during this tour!

John communicated with us about about our pick location and time so we both know what was going on. He picked us up on time and we decided on what type of tour would be best for my Mom who is in a wheel chair. John is very knowledgeable about the Denver area and photography. He helped us take the best pictures and suggested ways to improve our photography. He did not rush us while we were visiting several places and he gave us a great driving tour too. He is a safe and cautious driver.
