Do You Know Why It’s Called an Old Fashioned? DO YOU??
Raylene_T, Oct 2022
I love me a pub crawl slash educational tour, honestly. Tell me I can drink and learn and it’s like a night class at community college. I kid. Anyway. I learned SO MUCH about Denver prohibition, pre and post, and I’ve got trivial Knowledge that I can spew for a lifetime! (If you want to know why it’s called an Old Fashioned, this is the tour for you!) We went to three different bars in Denver and Laura gave us such great information. We had drinks at each bar - you want to name your poison? NAY! You’ll be offered a drink profile and try something interesting every time! At the middle bar we had an amazing snack along with our cocktails and more stories. Unsinkable Molly Brown? Heard of her? She’s got a drink! Mary Pickford. Heard of her? Another drink! My friend and I had a fantastic time AND we had such a great time with our tour mates we actually all had dinner together and finished up closing down one of the bars! Two thumbs up, 5 Stars and the Emmy Goes To LAURA for best Small-Group Cocktail Tour in Denver!
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Raylene - what a great review! Having our guests share their thoughts on a tour can be so helpful for other people that are deciding on which tour to take. We love that we could be part of a great night out! And we agree that Laura is a great storyteller/guide/host/historian. Thank you again for the review!
Cocktails and History
Emily_M, Oct 2022
Laura was great as our host, easy to talk to and very personable. She did a good job of explaining Denver and Colorado history and the stories behind the cocktails. We were hoping for some more unique and adventurous cocktails, but the ones we had were executed well.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Emily - thank you for your review of the Cocktail Tour. We agree - Laura is a wonderful host! She is great at sharing drink history and connecting it to the Denver area. We are always taking guest feedback and applying it to the tours so thanks for sharing your thoughts about the cocktails.
Fun and fact-full tour in Denver
Liz_M, Oct 2022
Laura was a great tour guide, very patient with our small group and provided a ton of information about Denver during prohibition. Some of the cocktails were better than others, but you have to be ready to give anything a try. Recommend for couples or groups of friends.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Liz - thank you for your five star review! Laura is great at adjusting her style to match her group and tailoring the tour so that everyone leaves with a great experience. While a new or different cocktail can be hit-or-miss, we find that is part of the fun with this tour so thanks for being willing to try! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and suggestions - we appreciate it!
Fun experience

Highly recommend
Laura_R, Aug 2022
This tour was such a treat! Our group had already been exploring the Denver bar scene on our own and our guide Kristina took it to the next level. She took us places that we hadn't found yet and not only taught us about local history but shared a fantastic selection of drinks their history as well. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and made the experience one that we will remember and highly recommend to others.
