Didn't get to see red rocks

The scenery was lovely. You should probably know by now when Red Rocks closes. We didn't get to go in and that was the whole point of the tour. Also, don't be afraid to to honest about history. It's better to be honest about some hero's problematic story than glaze it over.

Steve was great & I gave him 5 stars. We just spent too much time at the river. He should have given us just 15 min to walk along the river & then return to the bus

Very good, although a bit rushed for time

We had the foothills tour with Elsa and she was very good. Although we also did the garden of the gods and pike peaks tour which was an all day tour with Bernard which was amazing. The foothills tour was shorter and therefore left a bit rushed in each of the places we stopped. If you have the time (and money) I would definitely recommend the garden of the gods and pikes peak tour as had some amazing stops and views. Although both tour guides were great, very knowledgeable and helpful. The buses were very comfortable and we got LOTS of water to keep up hydrated to avoid altitude and car sickness. Very good experience with both tours

This is a great way to get out of the city and experience the natural beauty surrounding Denver! You don’t have to be a skilled hiker to enjoy this tour; just bring some comfortable walking shoes and some water, and you’re set for a great four-hour adventure. We really enjoyed this experience and would highly recommend it!

Don’t skip this 1/2 day tour!

We were in Denver on business and still managed to sightsee a bit with two 1/2 day tours that were phenomenal. Through Viator we found Aspire Tours and thoroughly enjoyed Nick & Zach’s knowledge of the area. Denver and the surrounding area is just gorgeous and I highly recommend getting someone else to drive that is familiar with the multiple hairpin turns. Enjoy!!

Two thumbs up! Looking forward to booking another tour someday!

Ty was an amazing guide, and very knowledgeable about the tour highlights. The half-day tour was a great way to see areas of Colorado I have never been to, as well as making new friends on the trip. I would definitely recommend it!

Nick and Zach were great guides for this half day trip to Red Rock and Lookout Mountain. Nick was very knowledgeable about the area and was entertaining at the same time. They were both wonderful guides and looked after our group with great care. Wished we had more time to go on the full day excursion

Red rocks amphitheater is out of this world. It is fascinating to see how an excellent venue for performance was made by combining natures creation and human ingenuity. After amphitheater, we visited foothills and saw a magnificent lake where we saw a large group of elks. Our tour guide Nick was fabulous.

Although Red Rocks amphitheater closed early on us, we had the chance to see the surrounding area and visitor center. Nick was a great guide and shared lots of interesting information. The views were amazing and it was a treat to enjoy a few hours outside of the downtown area.

We had the best time with our tour guide, Nick. He was so informative and had all the answers to our questions. I even got car sick and he went out of his way to a Walgreens to get me medicine.

We had a great experience on this tour. Ty was a really great guide! His passion for the area and commentary kept us interested, even our 13 year old. Highly recommend this excursion if you don’t have much time but want to explore outside of Denver. Visiting Red Rocks was the highlight of our trip.
