We will also be visiting The Whiskey House. Grab you and 13 of your favorite people together for this 3-hour adventure. Your designated driver is Toad Hop Tours, so HOP IN and join us!


Join us for a gorgeous drive up Pikes Peak to the 14,115-foot summit and don’t worry about the driving, we’ve got that covered for you! We’ll drive you up the 19-mile paved toll road (fees included in your tour) so you can enjoy the views. We’ll stop at Crystal Reservoir to admire the mountain and water views and take you to the summit, where you can shop in the summit house and explore. Allow approximately 4.5 hours for the full trip.

Ready to have a fun day of shopping therapy? Manitou Springs is the perfect destination! Toad Hop Tours will pick you up at a convenient location and drop you off at the west end of Manitou Springs. You’ll have 3 hours to explore the amazing art galleries, and Toad Hop Tours will pick you up at the dropoff location. An additional option is to go to a park and eat a boxed lunch, before then taking you to historic Old Colorado City for another 2 hours of shopping. OCC has loads of fun shops and places to visit, and is filled with interesting history (after all, it WAS the “red light district” back in the day!)

Price: $20 or $30 with a box lunch


Would you like to go hiking in our beautiful region and not have to deal with parking at a trailhead? Choose from a variety of easy, moderate, or difficult hikes. We will pick you up at a convenient location and drop you off at the trailhead and drive you home when you’re finished. And of course, cold beverages and snacks will await you after your’ve conquered the trail. Time varies depending on trail.

Price: $10 – $30 with sack lunch options

How often do you stop and focus deeply? When do you quiet your mind and body to sit and listen to God? We are all busy and bombarde by life, but we need to take the time to listen to the Holy Spirit. Our busy lives are not in line with being able to take a time out. Jesus was pushed on all sides but it was His priority to get away and pray. We have a variety of locations and different length hikes to a place of solitude. 


We meet at Stir Coffee and Cocktails in Colorado Springs at 9am on May 18th, and will visit Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory in Boulder. We’ll eat lunch at the Celestial Cafe and go to Littleman Ice Cream in Denver on the way home.

Price: $25 (lunch and dessert not included)


Let Toad Hop Tours provide the transportation for your next field trip, family reunion, wedding, or business outing (or whatever else you might need). We can carry up to 14 passengers and take you where ever you need. If you need to relay information to your group on the way, you are free to do that while we handle the driving! Don’t waste time on looking for a parking spot, when Toad Hop Tours can drop you off in a flash! Perfect for team building or getting to know each other trips. Customize each trip the way you want it!

How many people go on the tours?

Ours groups are always small and intimate. Our chariot only holds 13 passengers, but in the interest of efficiency, if we don’t have at least 6 guests we will reschedule the tour per our rescheduling policy. We will be glad to give you a refund if we can’t find another date that works better.

What is your rescheduling policy?

Like we said, we’ll be as flexible as possible. That said, if the tour needs to be rescheduled we require a 24 hour notice. If the tour needs to be rescheduled within 24 hours we simply require a $30 rescheduling fee.

What is the best way to contact you?

You can reach us by calling (719) 660-9907, emailing Jody at or find us on Facebook!

What can I bring with me?

The amount of storage will depend on the tour and how many people are attending. If we have a full van you can bring a personal bag that will fit under the seat in front of you. (i.e. small backpack/purse). We always carry a few chairs, water, emergency raincoats, and of course snacks. If the trip requires special items you will be notified in your confirmation email.

Can I bring my four legged friends?

Sorry no pets at this time. Hopefully soon, though!

Can I book the van for a special event?

Yes we would love to work with you! Just call (719-660-9907) or email Jody. We can drive you to your desired location, or work out a custom tour just for your group (minimum 6 people).

What if my group size changes at the last minute?

That’s not an issue at all! So long as the group size does not exceed 13 or drop below 6, we will be as flexible as possible to make the tours exactly what you want them to be. Just email or call Jody and let her know. Just call (719-660-9907) or email Jody to let her know.

Can we create a custom tour?

You’re darn right you can! If you want us to guide the tour, we simply ask a two week notice so we can get information together and provide an authentic Toad Hop Tour experience. However, if you wanted more of an informal tour without a guide element, we could arrange that within the two week limit so long as it does not conflict with any other tours we already have scheduled. To set something up, call (719-660-9907) or email Jody.

Is Pikes Peak really a dormant volcano?

No, but Pikes Peak granite was once molten rock deep below the earths surface. If you want to know more about it, call (719-660-9907) or email Jody and lets go check it out.
