Overview

Head for the hills to experience spectacular Rocky Mountain scenery on this full-day tour from Denver. Take in magnificent alpine vistas as you drive along Squaw Pass, and savor delicious Colorado cuisine with lunch at Echo Lake Lodge. Admire stately Victorian homes and storefronts in the silver mining outposts of Georgetown and Silver Plume, and take a historic ride aboard the narrow-gauge Georgetown Loop Railroad. Hotel pickup is included on this scenic Rocky Mountain adventure.
  • Full-day tour of mountain scenery around Denver including a train ride
  • Savor lunch at Echo Lake Lodge amid rugged peaks
  • Ride the Georgetown Loop Railroad, a 19th-century narrow gauge railway
  • Pass through the quaint and historic silver mining town of Georgetown

Discover Colorado’s rich history and dramatic natural beauty with this full-day tour of Rocky Mountain highlights. After pickup from your Denver hotel or the Cherry Creek Shopping Center in the morning, head west toward the foothills of the Rocky Mountains aboard a comfortable coach. Within an hour, you’ll be far from the urban bustle of Denver and immersed in the spectacular scenery of the Rockies. As you travel, listen to informative commentary from your knowledgeable driver and guide.
Enjoy views of jagged peaks and the Front Range as you wind along the hairpin curves of Squaw Pass. Stop for lunch at Echo Lake Lodge, where you can enjoy lake and mountain views as you dine on fresh Colorado cuisine.
Learn how 19th-century fortune seekers helped shape Colorado’s history with a visit to the historic mining town of Silver Plume. Here, climb aboard the historic, narrow-gauge Georgetown Loop Railroad for a ride through a steep canyon and over mountain passes that stretch more than 9,000 feet (2,743 meters) above sea level.
Continue on to Georgetown, another charming mining outpost nestled in a steep mountain valley. Keep your camera handy for shots of magnificent surrounding scenery and the town’s historic Victorian homes and saloon-like storefronts. Relax on the scenic return drive to Denver, where your 9-hour tour concludes at the Cherry Creek Shopping Center in central Denver.

Driver/Guide Darcy from GrayLine was lovely, informative and experienced. Tour was enjoyed but PLEASE consider a stop/tour at the Hotel Dupont in the Georgetown Loop. As New Yorkers, museums filled with history and time period objects are always a welcome to beautiful scenery. Arrangements should be made to include a 30 minute tour when at this stop and I am sure times can be arranged with the hotel. Was also quite surprised to learn the tours are run by GrayLine.

It was engaging, Tour guide lively and informative. Disappointed that it was I who made initial contact to company to inquire about delay. Pick up from hotel was delayed by more than one hour which caused others to wait for us at central departure location.

The Georgetown loop train ride and the lunch included were very nice. It was unfortunate that we did not spend much time near the Echo Lake after lunch as the parking was full. If knowing this earlier, I would have spent less time for lunch and taken a walk to the Lake to have a closer look. We were brought to a few other spots on the way which were so so.
