The 'Sunrise Hike' was phenomenal!
The Sunrise Hike with Aspire Tours was the perfect tour for me! I love being in nature. It was my first time in Denver, where I was attending a conference. Every time I walked by a window, I saw the nearby snow-capped Rockies and my heart twinged. I just yearned to be in the Colorado outdoors. (It is so easy to just see the inside of a hotel or convention center when traveling for a conference.) Fortunately, I found Aspire Tours and spoke with Taylor, who listened to what I wanted and provided options responsive to my needs. The Sunrise Hike was a great choice. It got me out early in the morning, so that I could be back in time for the first conference session of the day. My guide, Michelle, arrived promptly at 5:30 am and we headed west to the foothills. We hiked in Mt. Falcon Park where we saw animal tracks, deer, the ruins of the John Brisben Walker home, and beautiful views of the plains and mountains as the sun rose. It was an easy hike with minimal inclines. We were outside for about an hour, which also left time to swing by Red Rocks, a great outdoor venue situated between natural geologic formations. As we drove, Michelle provided interesting tidbits of local historic and cultural importance. The tour ended by 8:30 am. If you are on a limited schedule, but still want to experience the Colorado outdoors, I highly recommend Aspire Tours and the Sunrise Hike!

Amazing...couldn't have been better!
This tour truly exceeded my expectations. Not only were the views unbelievably spectacular, but Michelle (THE BEST TOUR GUIDE YOU COULD ASK FOR) was the funnest, most creative, genuine, kind, caring, and intelligent human being and tour guide one could ever ask for!!! I take pride in the fact that I was her Tech Girl and got to sit shot gun the entire trip. The woman truly knows her stuff, she loved adventures, she'll tell you all her crazy awesome travel stories (she has a LOT), and she will go above and beyond to create an unforgettable experience for you. Do NOT hesitate to ask for her as your tour host; you won't regret it! Promise!!
As far as the tour goes, I went on the Mt. Evans tour! Unfortunately, it was still bombarded with snow, so we didn't make it all the way to the top, but we got to see Red Rocks Amp Theatre, Idaho Springs, the cities Evergreen, Black Hawk, and City Center, and Echo Lake!! There was so much included and Michelle made sure we got enough time to soak in the views and the rest of mother nature's beautiful gifts! We had a pleasant lunch (hefty sized sandwiches, chips, cookie, applesauce, and a pickle), and even got a little tour of a cool Oprah House in Black Hawk!
Being this was my first time to Colorado, I was sososo happy to have seen so much! I absolutely NEED to go back! :)

Foothills Sunrise Hike
This is the perfect way to start any morning. i highly recommend this trip to travelers who may have busy daytime agendas, but want to experience the out doors. We were back in Denver by 8:00 a.m. and had time for breakfast before starting our day. We had the right mix of wildlife, hills and scenic photo opportunities. Michelle is a terrific guide and was so informative. Would do this again.

Foothills Tour, Denver CO
My husband and I did the four hour Foothill tour in CO and we saw the Red Rocks Amphitheater (must see! would love to see a concert there in the future), a beautiful State park with amazing views and a hike, as well as Buffalo Bills Grave.. all with beautiful views of CO. Our tour guide was MICHELLE and she was great! Very sociable, passionate, and educated about the sites we were visiting. We also enjoyed that we toured in a small group of about ~12 people in a van -- I think this gave us more time site seeing instead of head counting and loading the bus, etc. Overall, great tour and worth the money!

Aspire Tours Colorado Excellent Tour Company
My daughter and I did a Mt. Evans and Red Rocks Amphitheatre Tour through Aspire, and it was fabulous. The Tour Guide Michelle, was so knowledgeable, but also fun to have for the tour. She was conscious of letting us enjoy the sights and just experience it all. Which by the way, is a memorable tour going up 14,000 ft to Mt. Evans. The visit to Echo Lake for a picnic lunch was also great! I couldn't say enough about how enjoyable this was, and I would highly recommend. Also, Michelle was an excellent driver, and some of those roads are precarious!!
