Globus - Routes of OId West tour late July 2011

1. Subject 10-day bus tour starts/ends in Denver & covers brief Rocky Mtn NP visit--weather permitting, Moab, Utah; Mesa Verde, Durango-Silverton train, Santa Fe, Taos, NM; Colorado Springs, Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak Cog Railway.

2. Many meals are on- your-own (maybe @ $$$ Globus-affiliated eateries?).

3. Has anyone taken this tour or know someone who has?

Hi, sunbeltsue, and welcome to the Colorado forums.

I see you haven't had replies yet. I think many Trip Advisor fans tour independently. I have looked at this tour before in response to the same question, so thought I'd post the link to that previous thread. That OP was to take this tour fairly recently, so you could send him/her a message to find out how that trip went.

For someone who is unable or unwilling to drive and tour independently, this looks like a good option to me. I don't know how the costs compare.

This tour covers lots of miles and will be very scenic, but will only give you a brief taste of the different locations. For example, your time at Mesa Verde and Arches National Park is inadequate, IMO, but better than nothing! And I wish they were including the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park instead of--or at least in addition to--the Royal Gorge. But all in all, I think the itinerary is good.
