Historic Denver Walking Tours

Details

The highly popular LoDo Walking Tour will continue to explore around Denver Union Station. The Capitol Hill Walking Tour tells the story of the Movers & the Shakers — Denver high society — and industrialists that helped established Denver and where they once lived. Back again this year, the Larimer Square Walking Tour will also include exclusive access to the Daniels and Fisher Tower! New to launch beginning in June, is the 16th Street Walking Tour — the ever-evolving “Main Street” of Denver — a history of the retail, transportation and entertainment district, and how the architectural styles and functions of the street has developed over the years. Join us on a walk around some of Denver’s iconic neighborhoods, led by rigorously trained and expert tour docents.

Tours run 85 to 90 minutes long and cost between $15-20. To view tour days, times and to purchase tickets please visit our website. Advance ticket purchase is required before the tour time.
