Group Tour Guide Services

in Rocky Mountain National Park

Lively Tours and Talks provides step-on 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!”
