OK pay attention, if you arrive early enough like I did at 10 AM got to my hotel by 11 I was on this tour by 2 PM. It’s a two hour tour for 35 bucks this is the best tour in the city. In two hours we got pointers on where we should eat drink Where to have fun what museums to see if you’re interested if not it was very interesting. Learning historical Facts about the city that you would not know. You walk approximately A mile or so but everything flat nothing hard to do could’ve been done if somebody needed to ride a scooter or motorized wheelchair no problem. Our guide was super Duper the very best loved her so much we treated her to a beer at the end and we all had a good laugh social distancing yes handled very professionally never was a problem ever. We used her sanitizer she can’t clean our hands anytime we enter the building and we didn’t stay in one place for very long at allTold us about things that are right around the corner from our hotel that we never would’ve known without taking this tour please please please take this tour on your first day at your second day it will help you even if it’s on your last day you’ll be surprised it’s a great tour My wife and I are in our upper 60s is not a problem walking . Our guide met us exactly on time in fact we were a minute late and she called me there she was standing on top of the capitol steps for all to see and did you know that it says mile high or what was the 1 mile mark on the steps. And we were informed that young engineers from schools nearby performed a test and found that it was incorrect and marked the new spot. We had so much fun please take this tour don’t be a cheapskate 35 we met exactly where we were supposed to be take this tour take it!!! It’s not just about history you will not fall asleep. She will even help you find dispensaries if that’s what you’re into good luck I hope you pay attention. Just a note I don’t see why this tour couldn’t be done in the winter just dress warm the tour still goes on history never stops

Kristina was a great tour guide! My husband and I booked the day before and ended up with the tour all to ourselves! Kristina was able to point out a lot of buildings and fixtures around town that we never would have noticed without a guide. Highly recommend if you want a good balance of Denver past and present. Kristina is very passionate about her native city!

A Mistake
Discover04514560907
, Jun 2019
I tried to make a reservation for a bus tour of downtown Denver two weeks ahead of time. I was told that I couldn't do it until within a week of the tour. When I called again I was told that that tour was booked for every day until October 4th. The scheduler told me that there was one starting an hour later that was open. When my friend and I arrived at the meeting place we discovered that it was a walking tour instead. The day was hot and sunny requiring my friend and me to go into Union Station and purchase two sun hats for $60 each. The tour itself was pleasant and informative, but it was not suitable for two old and out-of-shape ladies. Your schedulers need to be aware of the difference between walking and bus tours. We paid $105 each for your mistake.

We had an amazing time on our Denver Walking Tour. It was a small group & our tour guide Nancy was full of information. It was a full 3 hours of walking & listening. Would definitely do again.
