Two of my daughters and I spent an afternoon with Jared. His humor and knowledge of the area as well as the camera equipment made the time very enjoyable. Jared is encouraging and upbeat. Hopefully, on our next trip can be during a different season and Jared can expose us to more. Glad we took the time to book with... More

We booked our tour for our 6th and last day in RMNP. We would have booked earlier, but this was the only date available. Jared, our guide, was very good. We were staying near the entrance to the park and Jared picked us up at our lodge in a very clean, comfortable SUV. He was willing to tailor the tour... More

We were here during the elk rut and true to other reviews, Jared provided an exceptional experience. He is like a walking encyclopedia. So much information on so many aspects of the park and nature in general. Definitely worth the extra money compared to the open jeep group tours!

Jared certainly knows Rocky Mountain National Park and the animals that live there. We hired him in Fall 2015 for the Elk Rut Safari. As we stood at the edge of a field in the Park watching the elk, he shared facts and figures about the elk and was able to predict with remarkable accuracy their movements and behavior, to... More

Jared is the first person we contact when we are making plans to return to Rocky and Estes Park. He is so incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He even nudged our friend to climb to the most beautiful aspen grove to take pictures at 8,700 ft. We highly recommend!

We are a couple in our early 60's on vacation in Estes Park. We decided to book an early morning photo tour to Rocky Mountain National Park to hopefully catch a nice sunrise and see some wildlife. We were not disappointed. Jared picked us up promptly at 5:15 am at our resort. He asked questions at the beginning to try... More
