We did a 3 hour tour of RMNP and it was wonderful! Brian picked us up promptly and the van was comfortable and spacious. He wore his mask at all times in the van and had extra masks on hand. He clearly had a plan but also asked us what we were hoping for and took that into account. He had so many interesting and entertaining stories and facts about what we were seeing and his sense of humor is great. We hiked a short way to ruins of a stone house from the early 1900s, which was near an area that overlooks Estes Park. It was beautiful! He took our picture by the RMNP sign, as well as anywhere else that I asked. If it weren't for him there would be like 2 photos of Mom on our trip! He also came prepared with ideas for photos and even a baseball bat to swing at snow balls. A little later we did a slightly longer hike up to an area that overlooks a waterfall (still some running water even though it was below freezing when our tour started) and a beautiful view of the mountains. It was a little strenuous for my out of shape self, but well worth it. We would have never known to go up there without Brian! When we returned to the van he provided hot chocolate. We stopped for photos and viewing at several other sites, including a rock formation where Brian had our 12 year old convinced that we were the first people to ever climb it--haha. While on the tour we saw a coyote, a lot of mule deer, and quite a few elk. Brian knew where to go and what to do to take advantage of our 3 hours with him, even though it was so very cold. He even offered us extra gloves and hats if we needed them. This tour was really the highlight of our weekend and that's all thanks to Brian. He is personable, friendly, and funny, and he has a good heart. He started his own tour business to ensure that people of all physical abilities could take advantage of what the area has to offer, and I am proud to support that endeavor. I am so glad I chose this company and this tour. Our 12 year old son and 14 year old daughter said it was the best part of the trip, and if you know teens, they don't like anything! You can be absolutely confident that a tour with Brian will be time and money well spent!

Angie! Thank you so much for the great review!!! Make sure you let Emily and Guy know that I have contacted the Rocky Mountain Importantness Historical Society Association (RMIHSA) about Sewell Point becoming the sanctioned name of the rock we "climbed."

We had such a great time with KEP Expeditions with Brian! Very knowledgeable ,and fun tour guide. We had teens with us ,and they had fun as well. We will definitely come back ,and do another tour again with Brian. The coffee or hot chocolate at the end of the tour hit the spot. Highly recommend KEP expeditions for your next tour while in Estes Co.

The teenagers did actually have a great time! Even if there is a little bit of "tude" at the begining, Colorado has a way of bringing out the fun to folks of all ages! Thank you for giving a tour a chance, and for the wonderful review! Cant wait to show your family around on you next Estes Park visit.

Brian from Kep Expeditions was so extremely knowledgeable when taking his tour through the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. He was super passionate and told us funny stories of old school frontiersmen who lived in the mountains which made the tour so much fun. He also took pictures of our group up and down the mountain, which we will treasure forever. Thank you Brian (Mr. Historian) and look forward to seeing you when we visit family again. Cheers!

Thank you for the great review! Kep Expeditions loves taking memorable photos of all of the groups that we come across in the national park. We are always learning more crafty cell phone tricks to take fun family photos and videos. I look forward to hanging out with your family again, and plenty more RMNP history to share next time!
