Overview
Soak up the scenery and culture of the Rocky Mountains—even if you have a limited time—on this half-day tour from Denver. Check out the sandstone acoustics of Red Rocks Amphitheatre, drive through alpine forests on the scenic Lariat Loop, and get panoramic views of Colorado’s Front Range from atop Lookout Mountain. It's a great way to see the outdoor playground on Denver’s doorstep without renting a car.

Even though snow snuck up on us and obscured some of our views, Barry still made it a fun and enjoyable experience. He was able to tell us all kinds of fun facts about all the stops we made. He also made me feel super safe when navigating some of the hairpin turns in the snow!
