Born and raised in Australia, I developed a love and passion for the outdoors at an early age. Since moving to the States, I quickly felt at home in Estes Park with the wildlife and nature surrounding me. I became a guide with the biggest tour company in Estes Park and quickly became their senior guide, racking in 100’s of 5 star reviews for their company. My knowledge and history of the Rocky Mountain National Park along with my outgoing personality has led me to want to create my own company where I can share my love of the National Park with others. Nicknamed Tarzan, I have an amazing ability to locate and get you up close and personal to the wildlife in the area. While the wildlife are never a given, the beauty and scenery are. Let me take the worry and stress out of the drive and leave you with a memory to treasure.
WHAT ARE COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS?
Please note that due to COVID-19 precautions, guests will be required to drive their own vehicles through the park with your guide in the lead vehicle. Radio communications will ensure you have a great experience on your adventure while staying safe.
WHAT TO BRING?
I would highly recommend bringing plenty of bottled water to stay hydrated. More importantly, warm layered clothes are recommended year round. Temperatures can drop quickly and rapidly the higher in elevation you go. Sunscreen is another item I would certainly pack in your bag. Hats, sunglasses are recommended as well. Footwear should consist of covered shoes as you will want to get out of your vehicle regularly for photographs and some small hikes up over the rocky terrain. Flip flops are not recommended. Most importantly bring a great smile and your camera. The views are magnificent and I will go out of my way to get as many photos as you wish. This is a photography based company and all the guides share a passion for photography. Last but not least bring a spirit of adventure.
WHERE DOES THE TOUR LEAVE FROM?
We will meet at the Estes Park Visitors Centre located at 500 Big Thompson Avenue Estes Park, Colorado 80517. If you do want to get a bite to eat before tour leaves, there is a McDonalds right across the road and a Starbucks coffee house directly opposite. Restrooms are highly recommended to use before departing for tour.
We run rain, hail or shine. We do accept cancellations outside of 48 hours from the date of the tour, however, we do book up fast and turn others away to hold that space for you. As a result of holding that space for you, you are agreeing to pay for the tour if canceling inside of 48 hours. We will do our best to resell your seats, however, if we are unable to do so, you will be charged as though you are on the tour.
HOW DO I TIP MY GUIDE?
Our guides will be going out of their way to serve you while on tour, and primarily work for their tips. If you enjoy your ride, we typically recommend 15 – 20% gratuity for the guide. They certainly appreciate the gesture.
