"Our team had a remarkable experience in learning about building trust, communication, listening skills with our CWRAG guides, Cindy, Jill & Alex. The “Chill Central” team will never forget the experience you gave us!"

"We booked a sight-seeing your, a mountain bike tour, and a zip line tour. Our guide, Jill was very knowledgeable in the areas of the equipment and where we traveled. Safety was ensured. I would book my adventures with them again."

Thanks so much for sharing (and taking!) the photos, and thank you again for being such a fantastic guide for our team!
The feedback was outstanding (I did reply to Tom’s feedback form as well), and this was by far one of the most fun and adventurous team building activity most of us had ever done! We particularly appreciated your expertise and calm demeanor, since most of us had never been fishing before. We also really appreciated your enthusiasm in less than ideal weather conditions! ???? Starting with a lesson and getting to practice our casting was very helpful, and we really enjoyed ourselves!
We would absolutely love to do another activity with you in better weather, though I’m not sure if/when we’d be able to since most of our team is based in the SF Bay Area. I will certainly reach out as soon as possible when I find out!
Thanks again for everything – take care!"

"My organization used Colorado Wilderness for an executive retreat activity. We participated in the 3-hour hiking activity through the Bear Lake loop of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Jill, Brad, and Hayley were our tour guides and they were fabulous in guiding us around and incredibly knowledgeable. We greatly appreciated their flexibility especially with the various physical abilities of my group. Definitely recommend for a great team building experience."

"I really appreciated their service. I wanted to take my team on a hike and it was nice to talk before hand about how challenging it should be. They really picked the perfect hike for my team! Josh was great and easy to work with (as was his team). Yes, you can go hike on your own for free (I do all the time) but if you want a guide and somebody that knows the area this is perfect. Outstanding for company trips or inexperienced hikers. I highly reccomend Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides."

"Our group at work had a business meeting for two days in our Boulder office last week. We decided to go to the mountains and found Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides on the internet. With their stellar reviews, I reached out to them. It turned out this is one of the best group outings we have had.
Josh and Joey were very professional and knowledgeable about the nature and kept us well informed during our 2-hour plus hike. They also brought us water, snacks, gloves, and hats just in case and we surely needed them because it was very cold with a flurry of snow in the mountains from time to time. We highly recommend Colorado Wilderness to everyone!"

"Half day hike was amazing! Christian, our guide was fantastic! She was very well prepared and she took good care of us. She allowed us to set our own pace as we got acclimated to the altitude.
Not only was the hike beautifully scenic, it was also a great workout. Can’t wait to come back and do it again!
I just wanted to drop you all a line and thank you for the awesome job you and your team did for our teambuilding event on Wednesday night. All the feedback I received was 100% positive!!
I am new to the team and it was my first highly visible project. Thanks for helping to make it a resounding success!
Please extend my appreciation to your team members!
I would love to get some pics as soon as possible to post to our team and corporate sites."
I just wanted to thank you and your staff again for a great and meaningful event today at Eldorado Canyon State Park! I have received much more feedback throughout the day with regard to how challenging and enjoyable the course you all put on for us was. Many have commented that it is the best training event trip they have ever been on. The breathtaking scenery mixed with the physical and mental stimulus your course provided tested each and every participant with respect to both individual leadership and teamwork. I am certain that lessons learned will be carried forward and put to good use in both the professional and personal lives of all. I hope you and your organization find continued success in providing personal and professional growth experiences for others that choose to accept what you have to offer.
Please let me know a good address that I can send a few tokens of our appreciation to you and your staff. If I find myself in the Boulder area again or you happen to visit the mostly flat, but beautiful state of Indiana, let’s grab a drink. Take care and best of luck!
With Faith and Valor,"
"We had a great family personalized trip with 7 people to the Rocky Mountain Park with Brad from Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides. I had injured myself a few weeks earlier so some of the tougher climbs we had to skip but Brad and team customized it for all of us to enjoy. We had ages from 9 to 72 on the trip and everyone had a great time. Happy to recommend this business!
4 day Company Retreat
"Our company held our meeting in RMNP and it was amazing. Our guides made logistics and planning super easy which meant more time outside enjoying the park.
Food was great and accommodated vegetarians ???? We did rock climbing, park volunteer service, a long hike, and fly fishing. SO FUN."
Amazing Race at Eldorado Canyon and Amazing it was!
"I contacted Colorado Wilderness after reading some great reviews on-line. After much discussion we decided to do the Amazing Race for 18 of my colleagues in Eldorado Canyon. The team did such activities as rock climbing, fill the bucket challenge, biking and a couple of other challenges that required communications. The team had a AWESOME time and are still talking about it 2 weeks later. Josh and his team were excellent and kept the team engaged."
Fly Fishing on the Upper Colorado
"Class-act organization, with real professionals leading the trip. They are a safety first organization, with intimate knowledge of the river, and most importantly, great, hands-on teachers as we were fly-fishing novices. No surprise Josh (the owner) has a deep background in athletics given his ability to articulate and teach form and technique. We will certainly use this company again, and would recommend them to anyone, especially those coming from out of town. They were perfectly communicative, and created a bespoke trip for us. Exactly what we wanted as we didn’t have any on-the-ground experience. Highly recommended.
Weekend Group Events
"We have worked with CWRAG for two years in a row on a weekend-long camping/hiking/rock climbing trip for 40 young adults.
Not only is their staff extremely organized, attentive, and knowledgeable about the outdoors and outdoor activities – but they are the most adaptive and people-oriented company that we work with. Every activity, meal, and logistical details was catered specifically to the needs and desires of our particular group.
Amazing Race at Eldorado Canyon and Amazing it was!
"Amazing, customized experience. Myself and my father were accompanied by Julie and Jill for a full day in Boulder Canyon. Julie picked us up from our hotel in downtown Denver and then we made the short drive to the Canyon. We were complete beginners so Jill explained all the equipment she had for us, took us up the rock and showed us how she set the ropes up and and then we started to climb! Everything was explained super well and we felt safe the whole time- there was always someone at the bottom belaying you and shouting up tips. We then headed out to a lake for lunch- sandwiches, fruit, chips, powerade (& beer) and then finished the day off with some traversing over rapids before getting driven back to the hotel.
Overall super cool experience and after it I’m really keen to do some more rock climbing and come back to do another tour with this company when I’m back in the country.
Also… they provide a ton of water/snacks AND take pictures of you that they provide to you via a link."
"I was so scared to take this rafting trip but it was probably one of the most fun, exhilarating things I’ve ever done. We had a party of 15 and every person was so glad they went. The guides were helpful and did a great job explaining what was needed to make the trip successful. I would highly recommend it."
"Thank you Tom and Joey. The group had a great time and your guides were awesome. It was the highlight of our event in Boulder. Please extend my thanks to all involved for giving our VIPs your VIP treatment."
"Guides Virginia, Brad, and Alex were awesome. They were a part of our group by the end of our retreat. Very knowledgeable and kind group."
Outdoor Team Leadership Meeting
"Josh is the man. We connected 3-4 months prior to the hike and I asked him to put together an epic hiking experience as part of a mid-year leadership meeting. 4 AM pickup in Boulder and hiked 16 miles across Rocky Mountain National Park. Josh is a great leader, clearly a seasoned guide, and it was the highlight of our trip to CO. The client experience is something that Josh and his team value and they delivered from A-Z. We are already in talks for a trip back in 19′ to do a 14’er. Highly recommend for anyone who is looking to get out of their comfort zone and accomplish something big as a team."
Corporate Team Building
"EnviroTech Services, Inc worked with Colorado Wilderness to do a Team Building Event for our Business Development Team. They were very professional, came early to set up, made the event fun and everyone enjoyed it and participated. All the comments back from the team were excellent! I would recommend Colorado Wilderness again for team building. any on-the-ground experience. Highly recommended.
EnviroTech Services, Inc
Large Corporate Event
"I used Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides for a large corporate event. They offered a great selection of tours and everyone came back raving about how much fun they had and how great the guides were. I will definitely recommend them to my colleagues for future events and will definitely book a tour with them next time I am in Boulder."
"I hired Colorado Wilderness for 3 separate hiking adventures. I wanted a very specific hiking experience that included seeing a broad range of landscapes and challenging hiking terrain. Mike was great to deal with on the phone and he connected me with Joe who put together 3 perfect days. Joe knowledge of the area and experience with weather patterns ensured we maximized our time and provided diverse adventures. If you are not familiar with the area and want to make the most of your time in Colorado, I highly recommend CWR and Guides!"
"Great working with Joey and Justin to help this group. I wish I had gotten to join the group to have even more feedback on the guides and experience. One thing I would do in the future is provide my own transportation for the group since we want our groups to have more of a sprinter than van with bench seats."
Barb & Mel
"Both tours one to Rocky Mountain National Park and one to Denver were wonderful. Sonia , the tour guide, was informative, friendly, on time for pick up, and covered much of what we wanted to see. I would say your services need nothing to improve upon."
"Hey Joshua, Just wanted to say that we had a great trip. Shaune came home with the Jelly in her pack.. thanks again. Hope you have a good and busy summer–pass this on to Nick. We really enjoyed you guys!"
Rocky Mt. National Park Tour
"I just wanted to thank you for organising the daytrip yesterday to the Rocky Mountains National Park. Sonja was truly an excellent guide. Her knowledge on the Rocky Mountains and trekking in general was outstanding and it was a pleasure to be in such good hands for the day. I am on business for the remainder of my visit to the US with little time to spare. To be able to spend a day in the Rocky Mountains and see it at probably its best at this time of year was an experience that I will never forget. Once again, thanks to Sonja.”
"Nick, Just wanted to take the time to thank you again, as well as, Josh and Sonja for a great vacation. This camping/backpacking trip will definitely go down as an experience of a lifetime and I appreciate the time and effort you put forth. Also, I haven’t done anything so physically challenging since I left the Marine Corps almost 30 years ago. I have nothing but great expectations for you and CWRAG, and plan to do this all over again next year."
3 Group Excursions
"I arranged 3 excursions for our group- Hiking, Biking, and Sightseeing. We had about 40 people total attend. I did the biking trip and it was great. It was harder then I expected, but all worth it and we were all able to make it with the encouragement of Justin and Christian. I got feedback from the people in each group and overwhelmingly, EVERYONE had a wonderful experience. Each group’s guides really tailored the experience to those in attendance. I would highly recommend Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides to anyone looking to have a great time and experience something off the beaten path."
They Do It All…REALLY well!
"I recently planned an out-of-town retreat for a group of 70 attorneys and hired CWRAG to handle 3 separate activities including rock climbing, hiking and horseback riding. Attorneys are generally a hard-to-please group of people so CWRAG had quite the challenge on their hands and they rose to the occasion. Every group absolutely LOVED their afternoon and couldn’t have been more pleased with their guides and the overall experience.
From planning through completion, the entire group at CWRAG was pleasant and easy to work with in getting the details down. I personally was with the rock climbing group and having never really climbed before with a ‘healthy fear of heights’, one would think I might be terrified. However, the experience of all of our guides kept me feeling safe and confident enough to make several climbs and leave me wanting more.
For the experience our groups had, I would say that the pricing is a real value and would happily recommend this group to anyone interested in being active while the beautiful state of Colorado. Can’t wait to visit again and try something new…thanks CWRAG!"
"We really enjoyed both the biking and trout fishing. In both cases, we appreciated the flexibility of the guides adapting to circumstances and our interests. Great job."
"We had a fabulous road bike tour around Boulder. It was such a great tour and was perfect for us! Please tell Justin how great of job he did! He was just wonderful, patient, thoughtful, safe, and super accommodating."
"We really had a nice tour of both the places i.e. Rocky Mountain NP as well as other Colorado National Parks. We had a nice experience with Sonya and the trip was very well managed. We will get in touch with you when we are looking forward for any trip. Thank you so much for all the co-operation and follow-ups."
"I hired Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides for hiking around Boulder, with the ultimate goal of hiking Pikes Peak. CWRAG developed a week long hiking program to train for length and elevation, and as a result, I had no problems with altitude sickness. The company also worked with me in the months before for a fitness program to help me prepare for my trip.
Cindy was assigned as my guide, and she did a fantastic job of making certain that all the training hikes supported my goal of reaching the summit of Pikes Peak. Each of the training hikes were incredible experiences on their own. In the end, despite wind and icy trail conditions, Cindy and I summited Pikes Peak on Aug 4. Cindy was extremely knowledgeable about the areas we hiked, and about hiking itself, offering many tips and advice. She also reviewed all my gear prior to the first hike to ensure I had the proper equipment. And the night before the Pikes Peak hike, she went over the exact clothing I would wear, and what food I would be carrying. On all the hikes Cindy monitored my condition to make certain that I was staying hydrated and eating to keep up my energy.
The office staff were also incredibly helpful and supportive. Everything went precisely as it should have, with no delays or mix-ups, even though I book this trip really early. It was an incredible experience."
"These folks are awesome; they saved my trip! I had scheduled transportation to and from a trail head in RMNP with Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides for part of a trip I spent months planning. Well, the day before the pickup, a forecast for an October dumping of snow forced me to change plans. I was already traveling and had limited resources and time to re-plan this part of my trip. After a few telephone calls with Josh, the owner, he had helped me create an alternative itinerary that better fit with the snow storm. John, my driver the next morning, picked me up right from my hotel and helped me to comply with the Park’s winter season logistical changes that involved a little extra driving.
I could not have done all that last minute planning on my own and probably would have spent the next couple of nights in a motel in town had it not been for Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides. Instead, I was in the park, surrounded by elk, birds, and breathtaking views of snow covered landscape.
Two days and 15 inches of new snow latter, I’m picked up by Nick (and a really sweet black lab named Sam) right on time to get me back to Boulder to catch the bus to my next leg. On the way out, Nick was able to answer questions to help me identify much of the wild life I saw. I’m so glad I worked with them verses a plain old taxi or shuttle service. There is a huge advantage to working with a transportation company that is also a full-service wilderness guiding company.
I will definitely use them again. hopefully next summer."
The Perfect Balance!
"My husband, two twentysomething daughters and I were in Boulder for a week last summer. Among the four of us we span a fair range of abilities and interests. Never having been there, we asked Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides to help us get to know the area — specifically by fishing, hiking and biking.
They did a fantastic job of recommending which trips to take and our guide for all three days was a perfect match with our family. He was skilled and knowledgeable about a wide range of topics, he managed to keep all of us challenged without overdoing it on any of the trips, and he fit in well with our family’s sense of adventure and humor. I could not recommend them more highly — they are great!"
A Wealth of Knowledge.
"If you are planning a trip to Boulder Colorado, a day in the mountains with Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides [formerly Boulder Wilderness Shuttle] is sure to make it an absolutely wonderful experience. Through his many years of guiding, Joshua possesses a wealth of knowledge about the outdoors, which he enjoys sharing and teaching to others. He puts a maximum emphasis on safety as well as happiness of his clients. His staff was professional and arrived on time to pick us up as scheduled. The shuttle van was clean, comfortable, and we had maps and books with trail descriptions at our disposal. We would highly recommend Boulder Wilderness Shuttle to anyone interested in spending a memorable day in the mountains exploring the Colorado Rockies!”"
Estes Park Wilderness Tour
"I really enjoyed my tour with Sonya of Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides. Me and my family went to Estes 2-3 weeks ago we thoroughly enjoyed the tour it was very educational. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is unfamiliar with the driving terrain or fear of driving at extremely high altitudes and hairpin turns on unpaved roads without barriers. I wanted my children to learn about mountains and how it plays into the eco system , trees and plants, micro organisms that grow in the snow. They learn about wild life. We were taught about how the Rocky Mountain National Park came into being. My children learned about how water ways are formed. Children learned and experienced the climate at high altitudes.
By taking this tour, I learned more about the mountains than it just merely going to a mountains. By having a tour guide it added a lot of depth. My family would have otherwise not have had this experience had it not been for this service. I highly recommend it; it is worth it."
Estes Park Wilderness Tour
"Hello Joshua and Nick! I had a wonderful time on our hike from Bear Lake to Grand Lake! The scenery was beautiful and I enjoyed the physical aspect of the hike. I thought Nick did a super job and I appreciated the difficult spot he was in having one person off the back and one waaaaaaaaay off the front. In spite of this Nick kept his cool and I felt secure. You are both knowledgeable, personable and fun. I thought Nick did an amazing job cooking the steaks (even though I’m not a steak eater) on a trip like that. I know that was not the usual backpacking fare.
Our group debated how best to take this hike since most of them are very inexperienced or have never been backpacking and I didn’t have the confidence to take a group out where I’m not familiar with the area or hiking at altitude and that’s how you ended up with us. One thing that seemed to be the prevailing thread among them is they wanted to hike but didn’t want to carry heavy packs or cook (and they still don’t).
p.s. I’d love to do a bike trip with you all."
Rocky Mountain National Park Tour
"Josh our group had so many great comments after the trip. The one underlying theme was you provided a great, informative, engaging, and personable tour to Rocky Mountain National Park. The bus was clean and handled our group well. The drinks and snacks more than satisfied us until a late lunch. Thank you again for being so accommodating, responsive in working with us during the whole process, and providing such a meaningful ending to our conference. We look forward to working with you again when we return."
David (Washington D.C.)
Tour of the Rockies
"Nick did a great job and we got exactly what we were looking for out of a tour of the Rockies in the brief time we had to spend in the area. He was very informative on the tour and made it a very pleasurable experience for my family and me. Look forward to being out your way again sometime and use your services when we have more time. Thanks."
Tim (New Jersey)
Estes Park Wilderness Tour
"Thank you so much for the time you spent with me on the phone helping to plan our trip. This trip went so smooth. You guys are the best. I have never been on a vacation where it was all taken care of. You guys went above and beyond to make this a memorable vacation. Nick you are the man. I have not done something this extreme, and so hard since the military. It was fantastic. You delivered on everything you said.
Elk walking by the camp, moose along the trail, and the Trout fishing was awesome. That was the best 6 days backpacking that anyone could of expected. We could never of had a trip like that without you Nick. You guys are the best. For anyone wanting to visit the mountains for any activity give these guys a call. You will not be disappointed. They go out of there way to make you feel like family. We will see you next year with a bigger group."
"Yesterday was a fantastic day of bass and trout fishing. With limited time between the wedding and reception, we had a great half-day fishing trip with our family. Many thanks for being so flexible, your attention to detail and making this fun and possible."
"You are so lucky to be able to spend so much time in Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park! The area combined with your great insight into the history and people of Colorado made this the highlight of our tour out west. Thank you again for such a great sightseeing and history tour."
Kathy (New York)
"Oh, we had an FANTASTIC time! Justin was awesome. Ends up my friend had fly fishing experience as a kid – who knew? – so I had lots of good private teaching. Need to come back to & actually catch some more fish! I’m pretty sure I scared most of them off early. Thank you for everything. I’ll be sure to recommend you guys!!"
One-Day Sightseeing Trip | RMNP
"I am writing to tell you that the one-day sightseeing trip my sister and I took with Sonja to Rocky Mountain National Park in June was perfect given that we only had one day to see the park. Sonja was informative and fun to be with and built in plenty of time for us to hike some. She planned the tour out nicely, stopping in Estes Park so that we could pick up food and drinks to enjoy at the top of the park.
The views were spectacular and we had plenty of time to take photographs. The tour was exactly what we were looking for. I’d do it again in a minute. Thanks so much for the great time."
Joanne & Samuel (Georgia)
"The day of snowshoeing was a perfect blend of exertion, challenge, and beauty. Thank you so much for taking us to an area we could never had gotten on our own! The day was spectacular and pleasantly exhausting."
"Thank you for all the great photos! We had a FABULOUS day with you both!"
"Joshua, GREAT photos you really captured how much fun we all had snowshoeing. Again a huge thank you for organizing and ordering great weather for the perfect snowshoeing day."
Company Bike Tour | Boulder
"Our company thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour from Boulder to Oskar Blues Brewery in Lyons. Everybody afterwards commented on how great a time they had and how worthwhile this was for our team. Seeing everyone become so much better acquainted should really help our organization out since we are all spread across the US. You provided a great tour and we will look forward to returning next year to bike Colorado and try that bike descent from the top of Rocky Mountain National Park to Estes Park."
Great Colorado Vacation
"What a great Colorado vacation and trip. Justin went above and beyond with providing great instruction in fly fishing. He was very patient and extremely knowledgeable about fishing techniques and Colorado fishing. This was a great vacation and a much needed rest from the noise and action of New York City. I will tell all our friends about how great fishing guides you are."
Pam (New York)
Meaningful For All
"Josh, Wanted to give you some more specific feedback on our experience with Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides in December. I’m not exaggerating when I say that you and your team over-delivered in many ways. Your listening skills are impeccable, demonstrated by you planning our outing with careful attention to the details I laid out in our first conversation. You demonstrated the ability to parlay our needs and varying abilities into a day of outdoor orienteering experience that was meaningful for all, melding together the outdoors, the power of nature, and the power of people.
A month later our team is still talking about our day with Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides, and we are using much of our experience in our current planning for the upcoming year. Thanks again for your attention to detail, your astute listening skills, your vast experience, and your ability to create an event none of us will soon forget. Ciao!"
"We had a great time yesterday and are looking forward to joining you for some guided mountain biking when we return this summer."
"God be with you, our days out far exceeded our expectations. Again thank you for such a wonderful day around Boulder and for my parents grand day up to high mountains. They were so happy!"
"Dear Josh and Nick, Had a brilliant day! Thank you for all your hard work in making this a fabulous trip to RMNP. I had truly a delightful time and envy your proximity to such a glorious and spectacular example of mother natures awesome beauty."
Rad Day Snowshoeing!
"Killer day! What a rad day snowshoeing! I can not believed I learned some much history in one day. Both my parents could not believed how cool the Colorado Rockies are. I am looking forward to hopefully coming to Boulder, Cross your fingers for me with admissions."
Cross Country Skiing | RMNP
"Thank you for your patience while teaching us the new sport of cross country skiing. We fell a lot but are excited about our next chance to do it again. All six of us had a fabulous time in Rocky Mountain National Park. You were the best, we could not done it without you!"
Amazing Scenery... Utterly Superb!
"What amazing scenery you have. Thank you for making us feel like family and taking care of everything. We are still chuckling over the fact that you need to get the three of us every piece of clothing for the two days since we only arrived with our business attire. Thank you for going the extra miles……………………….. for us. Spending two days with you was a much better than returning home for the weekend. The guiding was utterly superb! We look forward to joining your summit series one week hiking trip and one of the epic trips this summer."
Breathtaking Scenery, Solitude & Wildlife
"We had a lot of snow, wow! Joshua we thank our lucky stars we were will you, you had extra gear that kept us warm and the hot cidar was over the top. The wind was biting, but the scenery, solitude and wildlife was breathtaking. Your guidance, support and education was the best service we have ever had. Thank you again for all the time on the phone and e-mails before our trip, we really felt knowledgable about what we were getting into. We can not wait to see you next year."
Thank You For the Help
"Josh, thank you for your concern and advise. Being a long way from home and knowing no one in the area, I called you because we were scheduled for a guided day on Tuesday. Thank you for all your help in suggesting which physician to see, how to navigate to system in Boulder, and taking me to the clinic for free. As you know, I fractured my ankle walking on the trails in Boulder by myself. My brother is a physician and he said the MD who examined and treated me was first rate. Sadly, I was really looking forward to getting out in the mountains with you but it did no happen this trip. I am planning on returning next year for our conference and will no doubt join you then. Again, I can not thank you enough for helping me with everything and being so concerned about my wellbeing when you had no obligation to. You are an incredibly caring person, (I am also so lucky you are such an estute nurse) thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!"
Mary Anne (Rhode Island)
"I had a GREAT time on the tour with Sonja. We had a perfect day for it! I’ll certainly be back."
John (Washington D.C.)
"What a radical ride, I will be telling all my ‘boys’ at home about the descent and technical terrain we rode for awhile. I could not have challenged myself to that level without your guidance. You ROCK! now back to the kids and work."
"I wanted to thank you for a wonderful time we all had with on Monday with Nick up to Rocky Mountain Natl Park, Estes Park, and the Continental Divide. We will always remember it and are ready for another run. Nick was very helpful and great, we’ll want him on the next run. The vehicle was great."
Sightseeing Tour | Estes Park
"We really enjoyed our sightseeing tour with Sonja….she was a real people person and worked hard to make our day comfortable. We were thrilled to see all the elk at Estes Park and to enjoy the gorgeous Rockies without the hassle of driving ourselves. Sonja made sure we got all the pictures we wanted and spectacular ones. Best of luck in your venture – I would not hesitate to recommend your service to anyone!"
Marvelous Outdoor Experience
"We chose you because you best understood our needs and were the most personable on the phone. Our decision was right on, your service, professionalism, caring nature, and understanding of how to create a fantastic experience was right on. We can not thank you enough for such a marvelous outdoor experience for out family. We are already planning to join you for one of your one week trips for next summer!"
Trip to RMNP | So Enjoyable!
"I just wanted to say THANKS so much for making Brandon’s and my trip to Rocky Mountain National Park so enjoyable! We really liked your company and you were very accommodating. You and David were so so helpful. The trip itself was an incredible 5-day backpacking loop; we saw quite a few Moose, had to wait out a lightning storm, etc. You guys were great. Thanks again.
Never Find in Guide Book
"When we return to IBM next year, we will make sure we will have another trip with you. Relating everything to the Indian Himalayas made this something we could never find in a guide book. Please make sure to contact us when you return to India during your next trip."
7-Day Backpacking Trip | Spectacular
"The trip was better than we could have ever had hoped for. We could not have done this without your help, time, care and support. We were new to Colorado and did not know what to expect. Your many phone calls, 2 hours spent going over our trips logistics and making sure we were prepared, ready, and safe made the trip a success.
This was a absolutely spectacular 7-day backpacking trip planned and supported by you! Thank you for everything you did from CB’s to water purifying feedback to helping with our permits. We are already planning our next year trip with you in July 2010. Thanks a million!"
Eldorado State Park
"Joshua thank you for taking the exra time and giving me suggestions of what to do when I called after the last shuttle for the day had already departed. You recommendation to go to Eldorado State Park was perfect.
This was my last day in Boulder and you made my day so special. Thank you again so much for caring that I had a great experience here in Colorado. I will look you up when I return"
Susan (North Carolina)
So Many Elk
"We have never seen so many Elk so close to our hiking trail. WOW! I am getting a group from our school together for another guided day hike. I can not wait to see the wildlife, fall colors and be with you again soon!"
A Day of Biking | Boulder, CO
"I had the opportunity to join you for a day of biking. I found no comparison in the quality of service, professionalism, and education you provided. You are hands down the best outfitter in the Boulder Area!"
"What a rocking 2 days of biking and hiking, the coolest and most challenging stuff I have ever done. The routes and guiding was the best!"
"We had a tour that rivaled the best tours we have been on around the world. The scenery, history, and education was truely splendid."
"I really needed this time with my son. Thank you for making this wilderness opportunity possible and safe. This was just what the doctor ordered! We can not thank you enough."
Exceeded Our Expectations | Estes Park
"Joshua you were meant to do this! Our afternoon far exceeded our expectations. Please thank your wife for allowing us to keep you out so late. The great dinner in Estes and seeing the Stanley was a perfect end to our long week in the seminar. Jan already has told everyone at home that she visited the stage of the Shining. We can not wait to visit you again when we return to Boulder!"
Giving Me the Hat off Your Head
"We were so impressed on how much history about the area, weather, safety, plants, and animals we received. In such a short period of time, we really learned a lot. Thank you for giving me the hat off your head to make sure I was protected from sun at 3000 meters. Putting everything together so last minute was very fantastic. We will tell all the others attending events and training at NCAR and UCAR about you."

Stellar! | Boulder Denver Area
"Thank you for making all the plans and arrangements for me in getting from Denver to Boulder on RTD. I feel my trip was complete after spending a day with you on the shuttle. The history, safety plans, and suggestions you provided made the day smooth and very accessable. I could not have had an experience in Colorado so stellar without you. Cheers. Now on to Las Vegas, wish me luck.
What a Day!
"The hiking times and descriptions could not be any more perfect! Wow, what a day! Now I can imagine how hardy the first people that traveled through these mountains were. You gave me an experience I could never have found in a blog, website, or guidebook. I am so excited to incoporate the history of the West into my curriculum for my students."

I can not wait to visit you during our next stay in Boulder."
