Had a great experience with tour guide Tim on a one night backpacking trip in RMNP. We saw Moose and bugling Elk and went fly fishing. It was a great experience for myself and my teenage daughter. I highly recommend Tim as a guide.

Paula, I don't know why Trip Adviser did not put your review up. I have waited for them to respond but no luck. Anyway, we really appreciate your great review, just wish Trip Adviser had let others see it.
