Group Tour Guide Services

in Rocky Mountain National Park

Lively Tours and Talks provides guide services for large group bus and motor coach tours of Rocky Mountain National Park–the perfect day trip offering for senior/rec centers, schools, vacation clubs, family reunions and other private group functions.

Each tour has a mix of sightseeing, historic tales and trivia, short walks/hikes to scenic views plus the opportunity for the group to become immersed into the wilderness, wildlife, and wonder of Rocky Mountain National Park. Long after the bus or motor-coach leaves our valley, photos will remind them of their personal and memorable experiences of ROCKY!

“Dave Lively is the best local tour guide I have ever encountered in 19 years of leading group tours across Canada and the USA. If you are bringing your family or a group (we had 47!) anywhere near RMNP, do yourself a favor and hire Dave for the day–I promise you will be glad you did! Our group is STILL talking about our day with Dave!”
