Trip Advisor 5 Star Rating...August 17, 2018 "We booked a tour so everyone in the family could take in the sights (instead of one of us driving and getting white knuckled). We decided on a Jeep because sometimes sightseeing on buses is limited (and we were not going to hike or bike) and picked Manitou Springs Adventures, High Country Excursions because of good reviews and the fact that they published driver biographies on their web site. We booked several weeks in advance and the office staff was patient and polite, even when we asked questions that, in hindsight, had obvious answers. They took a credit card number with the reservation but did not charge it until the day of the tour. They sent a text message with instructions about when and where to meet on the day of the tour, including where to park. We arrived on the day of our tour, filled out paperwork and met our guide and driver, Clint. The Jeep was clean and each seat had easy access to water, trail mix and granola bars - and there were more in the trunk. Clint drove us to the top, making several stops (some at our request) to take pictures or admire the views. He pointed out things we should notice and mentioned where he usually saw wildlife so we could keep our eyes peeled. We had about 45 minutes at the top of Pikes Peak and Clint made sure we were comfortable at that elevation. Clint gladly assisted us (and several other people) in taking photographs. The descent was similar to the ascent except we made different stops. The total trip was about 4 hours long. We had a great time and would book again and ask for Clint"
Trip Advisor 5 Star Rating...August 14, 2018 "This is the best way to see Pikes Peak. Just sit back and enjoy. Stops are made along the way for viewing and pictures. Some time is spent at the top to enjoy the most beautiful view that I have ever seen. Cog railroad is closed and towards the top they are closing road for awhile so if you drove you would have to park there and ride a bus to top. Their jeeps are allowed to drive to top. Fun trip, well worth the cost!"
Trip Advisor 5 Star Rating...August 28, 2018 " We started our tour with Rae and a purple jeep. We had an awesome time with her. We started the trip in the house filling out papers, eating donuts and drinking coffee. When we got in the jeep there was water and trail mix in our seat. She was very friendly and professional and kept encouraging us to drink lots of water. She made frequent stops for pictures or to use the restroom. She knew lots about Pikes Peak and the ride up and down the mountain. Because we are not in the best physical shape, she helped us up and down little inclines. Always ready to take a picture of us with our camera or hers. She gave us lots of little extras like donuts, a certificate to the Top of Pikes Peak and a wooden nickel. Don't give it a second thought about driving yourself to the summit. Go up there with this company and you won't be disappointed!"
Trip Advisor 5 Star Rating...August 29, 2018 "Had an awe inspiring ride up to Pikes Peak with our driver and guide, Rae, who was a great driver, allowing us to sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful vistas. Rae was knowledgeable of the area, pointing out special views and areas of interest. My husband and I were joined on the trip by our 16 year old grandson, and Rae provided us with wonderful photos of our grandson and our trip. The only perfect way to see Pikes Peak is in a jeep with a driver and guide like Rae!"
Trip Advisor 5 Star Rating....August 30, 2018 "I'd been to Pike's Peak before, but never like this. Our driver, Loring Wirbel, kept us informed of current and past events, the natural environment & the changes at tree levels, even showing and describing the Fast & Furious route up the mountain from a great overview. i would recommend the trip to any one that has the least interest in the beautiful outdoors, nature and amusing company.

Driving Yourself Around vs Jeep Sightseeing Adventure?
If you decide to drive yourself - you will NOT see the views while driving, you don't know the places to stop for the best views, or where parking is at a premium, and you will probably overheat your brakes on the way down the Peak. Plus, starting Memorial Day Weekend 2018, individuals do not have direct access to the summit and will have to use a shuttle once on the mountain. We drive directly up with full summit access!

"My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary by returning to the top of Pikes Peak, which we did on our honeymoon. Renee was a fantastic guide - personable and knowledgeable about everything Colorado. Had a great time."
"Renee was an awesome driver and guide. She knows a lot about the mountain and it was so nice to be able to look at the view and not have to worry about driving. You have to take a shuttle to the top so it is nice to be able to go up the mountain directly. (You drive partway and then take a shuttle due to the construction at the top and little parking, but the keeps go the whole way)
This is a top notch operation. It is certainly possible to drive yourself but it is great not to have to do it. Also she found sheep and marmuts that we probably would have missed."
"Very thankful we made the decision to take the tour rather then drive it! It was well worth the money! Our guide, Bear was fabulous. He was a lot of fun, felt very safe with him and very knowledgeable! He stopped for us to take pics, made sure we were hydrated and had plenty of snacks. Had we driven it ourselves, we would not have been able to enjoy the view and we would not have been prepared for the altitude change. If you spend money on one tour this is the one to do! Thanks Bear for a great experience! The Lenz Family"
"Our trip to Pike's Peak was a great trip! The sights were awesome. Rhonda, our driver, was a wealth of information. She was very accommodating, even to the point of recommending backgrounds for pictures and taking pictures of our group. I highly recommend the trip to Pike's Peak, Manitou Springs Adventures, and Rhonda as a tour guide."

Some General Comments.....
1. FUN!!!!! The guides love what they do and this makes for a very fun no stress day.
2. No stress. They do the driving you do the observing. It is their vehicles not yours.
3. Educational. The guides are very knowledgeable. Not just in points of interest, but in the history/science of the area.
4. Kid friendly. The guides are fantastic with my children, and was very attentive to their needs, questions, and interest.
5. Adequate time. They do not rush you thru the experience. We made several stops along the way and once on top had more then enough time to look around. More then "others".
BONUS!!!!.....THEY BOUGHT US Summit DONUTS.
We will be recommending you guys to everyone who is headed that way.
THANK YOU !"
Fun all the way up and down Pikes Peak, and we buy the donuts too! Water, protein bars, and trail mix provided along the way on ALL tours!! We run 3 times daily in the Summer months, 7 days a week throughout the year....so call us and relax!
