Our crew of talented local guides offers up three unique, affordable, private Discovery Tours 7 days/week, year-round.

  • A perfect way to tour Denver after your meeting, conference, or convention wraps-up for the day.

  • Arriving into town later in the day and still want to make the most of your visit plus get a great introduction to the city? Join us on a fun Denver walk!

  • Not an early bird or have a bit of jet-lag? No worries, we've got you covered with plenty of start time options.

We've got something for everyone - book one tour or all three if you're in town for a few days - each is a unique Mile High City walking tour experience showcasing the top sights and landmarks in different parts of Denver.


These Denver discovery tours last just 1 hour and 15 minutes and our local guides give great recommendations on our favorite nearby places to grab a bite to eat or drink after your Denver walking tour experience wraps up.
