Highlights
  • Escape bustling Denver to see key sights in the Rocky Mountain foothills

What to Expect
Meet your guide at downtown Denver's Union Station, where you board your comfortable van for the ride to Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater. Admire the stunning views from this concert venue, built right into the red-rock formations, where musical legends have played for decades. Then motor along the historic Lariat Loop National Scenic Byway to Golden, where you can choose to stroll the shops in the historic town or tour the Coors Brewery—the largest single brewery facility in the world. Then head up Lookout Mountain for panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Memorabilia from the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show are on display at the museum at the top, as is the legendary showman’s grave. You’re likely to see American bison (aka buffalo) grazing at Genesee Mountain Park on your return to Denver's Union Station, the final stop on your tour.

We really enjoyed the tour. Kristina was great and very knowledgeable. She made sure we got good pics of the bison 😆 after a few loops on the highway. It was a nice to have someone else to drive while you could appreciate the scenery. Enjoyable tour and super nice people!!

Kyle was energetic and friendly. This tour is suited for first time visitors to Denver. You can visit all the locations free without this tour, but if you're unfamiliar with the region it's helpful.

This was a wonderful tour that gives you a taste of Colorado gems. The tour guide was informative and personable. This was a great trip if you only had a half day. The red rocks were truly amazing to see and Buffalo Bills grave site and mountain were breathtaking.
