Fun, fun, fun! If you’re looking for a few hours of the sordid history of Denver, with stops at really cool historical locations, topped off by some great watering holes, this is for you. Rachel is entertaining and shared the craziest stories in a most engaging manner. Great people, great time!

Rachel, our tour guide was energetic and fantastic! Fun to learn some lesser known history of historic Denver. Also to be introduced to a handful of bars and the dairy block. At our last stop we played a dice game from the 1800s. It was a nice addition to the mix.

Looking for something unique to do in Denver? Don’t know where to start exploring downtown? Look no further! This little history tour was full of laughs, drinks and insight into Denver’s past Madams & red light district…ours even had a little shower at the end to cleanse our souls 🤣 (*shower not guaranteed on the tour, just depends on what the weather decides to do that day!) Rachel was such a fun guide and well knowledgeable of the area. 10/10 highly recommended!!
