    We went on the full day hiking trip to the Rocky Mountain national park and had a fantastic time! We felt well prepared based on the information we’d been given. Paul Kullman was an amazing guide! We saw beautiful views, had such a fun day, and we felt in good hands the whole day. We spotted elk and birds. Paul was incredibly knowledgeable and we learnt so much. It was our first time in the Rockies so we appreciated how convenient the trip was. We would definitely recommend this trip!

    Our guide Aaron was excellent. He was very passionate about everything he showed us and very much interested in making sure we enjoyed the whole experience. We saw, a Lynx eating a mouse, Elk, Deer, Eagles, an Owl, Turkeys on a tree. a water fall, we learned about the rocks, and trees so much more. Highly recommend.

    It was absolutely an over the top experience! Brad was such an accommodating tour guide, and we saw some of the most beautiful sites ever! Brad really went out of his way to make us feel special and customize our trip to exactly how we wanted it. We highly recommend this private tour far above larger group tours. Thank you Brad for making our day great!

    We took the full day Rocky Mountain tour with Justin. We were two families with 4 children ages 7 to 12. Me and my 9 year old wrote the following review:

    Our experience was amazing we saw so much snow. The drive was long but it was beautiful and comfortable. We could even charge our phones in the van. We saw elk,deer,and long horn sheep. Be sure to bring snacks and snow boots and gloves and layers if you are going in the winter. There was not that much walking but our family did mostly shopping but if your tour stops at great Bear Lake there is a loop and it is about a mile but if you want a shorter walk there is some other option of walks and they are mostly flat. But what made this experience even better was our tour guide Justin. He was super nice and in the beginning he asked everyone to introduce themselves. The one thing that would have made it better is to have more time at each stop. Especially the Stanley Hotel where we wanted to get a hot toddy but did not have time. We were able to get a quick whisky tasting in though.

    I am writing this review on behalf of my visually impaired friend from Germany that visited Colorado and toured with Explore Estes. His name is Nils.
    These are his words:

    We joined the winter private Tour in March 2022 and it was awesome! We have seen so many areas of the National park and learned a lot about the park background, the animals and the trees cause the tour guide Riley shared so many interesting stories with us. The tour was excellent prepared with many stops and different experiences. But, additionally we were also able to customize the tour completely on our own interest. There was no hurry and we had time to extend the tour as well. We also highly recommend this tour to disabled people. The tour guide customized the Trip on each ability. For instance, as a blind person I enjoyed it so much getting the chance to touch all the trees, barks, leaves, pinecones etc. he explained. The guide also brought all the needed gear and equipment like sleds or snowshoes to borrow and helped to put them on. The tour is open to all, kids, senior and disabled friendly. We would definitely do this tour once again!

    Highly recommend!! They are a friendly husband and wife owned business. The customized tours are private, so it will just be your group that they'll be privately driving and walking around (they pick you up right from where you are staying in Estes Park), and so you won't be mixed with other groups like other tours might have you do. Marriah responds quickly and in detail in email, which helped get us excited for our tour. Riley gave our tour, and made sure to take us to see a waterfall, animals, and lakes, everything we requested, all with incredible 🏔️🍃🍁🍂 Colorado scenery! The tour was wonderful and he gave us a lot of information about the animals, plants, and area all along the way. He also patiently took many 📸 photos for us lol, and knew the exact spots at each stop where the best views for photos would be! Even with some of the roads closed at the end of October, they knew just where to take us so that we could still experience the highlights of breathtaking Rocky Mountain National Park. Thank you for such a memorable experience!!
    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    (P.S. They also have transportation services. We had a rental car (get AWD or 4WD if you get one), but if you don't have a car, ask them about that too!)

    This was the best hike! Not only did I hike over 5 miles with a 14,000-foot elevation gain to Ouzel Falls but I gained so much knowledge, and felt empowered, but my 68-year-old aunt did it as well! Sharon has started such a wonderful business to help women feel empowered and strong. She shared so much about her journey to this point as well as so much valuable knowledge about nature. I learned which flowers along our walk were poisonous and which ones were good for humans in different ways and so much more. She kept a steady pace to keep both me and my aunt from being too drained which allowed us to make it to the top with very few breaks. Once we got to our destination we enjoyed some hot chocolate, Kuju coffee (which is delicious,) and snacks that were provided by Sharon to keep our energy up and prevent fatigue. When we reached the top of the waterfall I felt so accomplished and empowered. I have never hiked so high before and was so proud of myself and my aunt. With Sharon's guidance and help, neither of us ever felt like we could not make it. She encouraged us the whole way. I love that she does this so that women traveling alone or in small groups do not have to feel unsafe or alone when wanting to hike the Rocky Mountains. I now feel so much more equipped to go on hikes by myself as well as stronger and more empowered than I did before. I definitely would recommend Femme Track to any women that I know and will do more hikes with her if I ever get the chance to come back to Estes Park.

    Kyle was an excellent tour guide! I was looking for a way to see RMNP while visiting Denver and traveling alone with my son. We only had one day to explore the park and wanted to maximize our time and feel safe. The private tour provided just that - I was able to relax and take it all in, not having to worry about navigating. Kyle knew the park and could help us pack as much into our day as possible. We had a blast hiking, viewing wildlife, and seeing the beautiful terrain.

    Can’t recommend Full Potential Wilderness enough! Brooke was so sweet and fun and she is very knowledgeable about RMNP! The professional pictures are an added bonus! We loved everything about our hike!
