Fun and engaging tour

Tristan made a special effort to engage with the group and keep them involved with the experience of getting to know Denver. His knowledge was good, but his enthusiasm for the city was even better. Thanks for doing a great job, Tristan!

Kristina was a great guide. Very interesting! Our first time visiting Denver so we wanted an overview of the city and that's what we got. Saw the highlights. The walking wasn't too much.

Getting to walk the streets of Denver and hear about special moments in the city's history gave us a better knowledge of a place we had visited before but never taken the time to fully appreciate.

Beautiful fall season walking tour

I was the only one on this walking tour which for some may be uncomfortable but I got to ask questions and go at my own pace with the Tristan, the tour guide. He had a lot of stories about Denver and its founding which I would not have learned about by just reading. And the Fall day was gorgeous for walking!

My husband and I are in our 60s and we’re not the fastest walkers. This tour was just the right pace for us. Kristina made the tour so interesting. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time but wishes do you learn a lot about Denver.

Great intro to Denver History
Michelle_G
, Oct 2021
This tour is such a great way to get a quick introduction to Denver and the history of the town. Our guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. She made it a point to get to know the 5 people in our group and for us to get to know one another as well. The pace was leisurely and not at all rushed.

Not enough content for the amount of walking. Would have liked more interesting stories. Expensive for what it was.
