Half-Day Tour ( 3-4 hours )

Red Rocks Park and Denver
$149 first person, $70 each additional person

Denver Art Museum

A perfect Denver orientation!
First, we'll leave the city behind for awhile and drive out west to the
spectacular Red Rocks Park, home
of one of the most famous outdoor amphitheaters in the world.
Almost every legendary singer and band you can think of has performed
in this "rock garden" and it is truly a magnificent sight at any time of day and at any time of year.

Then, it's back to the city with a very entertaining look at all that is old and new, historic and modern.
You'll hear the tales of the famous and infamous, and have some great views of the our State Capitol, the Theater District, Civic Center, Victorian Denver, our various professional sports venues, Larimer Square, and much more.
There are always a few surprises along the way.


Please feel free to customize your Private Guided Tour on the spot! Your Guide does not run a "set" Itinerary, because your tour is yours to design and experience.




Full-Day Tour  (6-7 hours)

Historic Gold Country
$209 first person, $70 each additional person

Red Rocks Trading Post
Continental Divide

The 1859 Gold Rush!
Hear the true tales of early miners who struck it rich, and pioneers whose vision helped create modern Colorado.
Out to the west of Denver are the wild and beautiful foothills, which sit at the foot of the Continental Divide.

We'll visit the iconic Red Rocks Park, historic mining towns, and Lookout Mountain, the resting place of William F. Cody, the world-famous"Buffalo Bill."

These are the unforgettable, spectacular views everyone loves. The Native Americans called this area "the land of the long look" and that's exactly what you will be treated to.
So, don't forget your camera!

There’s time for lunch and a stroll in an authentic mining town, where the Cornish miners brought their families and their skills to Colorado Territory. The Idaho Springs Visitor Center is considered one of the best small-town Museums in the nation and it's worth a visit!

Plus, there's always a good chance we can see our bison herd grazing in their mountain pastures.
(Yikes! We cannot promise!)
Sometimes they are extremely shy, but we are usually fairly lucky, and we'll stop for photos
for sure!




Extended-Day Tour (9-10 hours)

Top of Colorado Tour   (Two Choices)
$259 first person, $70 each additional person

#1  Rocky Mountain National Park

Unforgettable vistas, amazing photo stops, alpine tundra, wildlife and critters (if we are lucky!) and top-notch western history awaits.
Rocky Mountain National Park, was the original home of Native American Indians, who loved it's vast views of the surrounding mountain ranges and and lush valleys.

 You'll see the quaint village of Estes Park, a tourist mecca for the last century.
See the famous Stanley Hotel, which inspired Steven King's book and movie, and which many claim to be one of the most haunted buildings in Colorado.Have some fun and sing “Rocky Mountain High!” along with John Denver, on the twists and turns as we ascend to the top of the world.

This is only one of Colorado's four National Parks, and each is incredibly special and unique. However, Rocky Park may have the most famous and most spectacular views in the high country. You just cannot miss your chance to feel the mountain breezes and gaze on this wild landscape!


#2  Pikes Peak/Colorado Springs  

Enjoy a tour through Colorado Springs, spread out at the foot of Pikes Peak, affectionately known as "America’s Mountain!"

Spend a morning on the Pikes Peak Cog Railroad as it chugs to the very summit. Buying your ticket and jumping on your Cog is a lot easier than climbing up on foot, which hardy visitors have been doing for over a century! Enjoying one of life's most treasured moments is just a lot easier
in this century and you won't regret this enthralling adventure.

The ancient Garden of the Gods, holds many reminders of human history. Wandering among the spires and red sandstone formations is a dazzling, breathtaking experience, just because of their sheer size and the dramatic formations shooting up against the blue Colorado sky.

Other stops may include the United States Air Force Academy, the youngest and westernmost military academy in America. The spacious campus sits on almost 2,000 acres, sitting at the foot of Pikes Peak. The Goldwater Visitor Center is a perfect place to pick up an Air Force souvenir,
walk over a trail to the iconic Chapel, or enjoy a cold drink.
 
If you are interested in the Olympic Games, it's always interesting to stop at the Olympic Training Center.
Or, for the true stories of early Colorado Springs, the remarkable downtown Pioneer Museum is incredible, for both young and old.



So, our private guided tours will have you feeling like a local in no time. It may be a bit more expensive than a sightseeing bus, but
our guests tend to be more discerning. Being with your own friends, colleagues, or family in a private and comfortable touring environment is definitely worth it!
