Seeing the red rocks theatre was great... I wish i was in town long enough to see something there. it was overall a nice, relaxing tour. Our tour guide Josh was a good driver and gave us a lot of interesting information. Enjoyed the stops we made for pics, food and bathroom breaks. If you are interested in having wine at one of the stops.... obviously take the afternoon tour. This tour is good if you are not able or interested in doing anything strenuous. We had a person in our family who needs a cane, and this tour was not too strenuous on him. As you get older.. this is a consideration. This tour was a perfect choice in that regard.

I highly recommend this tour! We wanted to visit a few places outside of Denver without having to rent a car, so this was perfect. Pick up was super easy and the bus was new. Our guide, Brailey, was absolutely fantastic! She was so engaging and knowledgeable about a variety of topics. She also made sure to give us recommendations of where to go/eat in downtown Denver too.

This was the perfect way to get to see some sights, learn some CO facts, and get out of the city for a 1/2 day. Our guide Brailie was engaging and intelligent. Every stop was well planned and timed. This is a great simple highlights tour for anyone coming to Denver. This was not a hiking trip.
