Worth the tour

Wonderful tour

Had a wonderful time with Kristina. She was amazing tour guide. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Denver
Covers a lot of ground… (literally!)
, Sep 2021
Having never been to Denver before, I wanted to find a tour/activity that would familiarize me with a concise history of this place as well as a chance to see buildings of significance as well. With the weather being absolutely stunning, you could not have had a more beautiful backdrop for this activity. Then if you pair it with it a tour guide who is as exuberant, passionate, positive, and knowledgeable as Kristina, do you have a sensational during event. Also this event was unique because it was predominantly an outdoor activity which involved doing some thing physical. The level of physicality was easily mastered and was not taxing on me personally. I truly learned so much through this tour and felt it was an awesome way to get the lay of the land. “
Short walking tour with history of city
, Sep 2021
It was interesting hearing the history of the city. I wish we could have entered a couple of the buildings. The small group was good for hearing the guide and he did a good job of keeping us in the shade as much as possible.
Fabulous tour with Kristina!!

Best way to get to know Denver
, Aug 2021
The Denver History and Highlights walking tour with Kristina was amazing. Kristina is not only a Denver native, but also has a background in history. She was very detailed in introducing Denver's main areas, its rich history, and also hidden gems. She was really friendly and made sure to check in and see if we had any additional questions or additional guidance we needed.
Great city tour
, Aug 2021
This was a wonderful tour. Kristina was great. She was a wealth of knowledge very personable and kind. She did a great job making sure you could hear her and at a great pace. Understand this is a walking tour for 2 hours. We had a gentleman who struggled to walk for that long but Kristina was great with him. Perfect tour to see the city. I really like the option of a small group
