My wife and I took the Journey to the Top tour on August 15. The tour was amazing. The scenery was breathtaking (especially since we could look and leave the driving to our guide Rachael). Rachael was very knowledgeable on the history of the park,...More

We took the Grand Lake Safari, which began at 8:30 a.m. and lasted until 4:30 p.m. and included lunch. I believe it was $95 apiece. We saw the entire stretch of Trail Ridge Road, including the Continental Divide, and spent quite a bit of the trip at the very top of the Rockies.
We would definitely recommend the tour as the guides have great insights into the park, they are good at finding animals for you to see and photograph (from a safe distance), and you are free to look at the landscapes rather than one of you having to drive and find parking spots at sometimes crowded lots. There wasn't any mandatory hiking, but there were spots where you could wak and sightsee if you shose.
Carry water with you whenever you travel in the Rockies and drink frequently. The high altitudes dehydriate you faster than you'd suspect.
