The Story

Denver Walking Tours (DWT) was founded by Jill and Matt in early 2015.


Jill (a Sconie) and Matt (a Kiwi) met while both were living in Sydney, Australia about fourteen years ago, and spent the next decade traveling around the world to 47 countries, whenever they had the chance, around their full-time jobs.  


"We believe that everyone should have access to a great walking tour experience, regardless of budget, which is why we launched Denver Walking Tours as a tour guide cooperative, offering high-quality, interactive, free walking tours and low-cost, paid walking tours as a way to have some fun, work with amazing people, and share the great sights, landmarks, and history that make our Mile High City so unique with both locals and people from all over the world! 


We live in downtown Denver, love the city, and only wished there was a free walking tour available back when we moved to beautiful Colorado years ago to give us the scoop on all the great sights, history, culture, and fun places to check out around town.  


We've surrounded ourselves with a team of amazing guides who are just as passionate and knowledgeable about Denver and the history, architecture, and landmarks that make Denver our home."


Interested in interning? We have Tour Guide Internship and Marketing & Communications Internship opportunities available.


The DWT Team


Working with Jill and Matt is a small team of guides. Professional, charismatic, and dynamic – we couldn't be happier with the job they do. Guides are a mix of professionals - tour guides, comedians, actors, history buffs, teachers, storytellers, and world travelers. With the DWT team you get energy, enthusiasm, wit and wisdom!  We're also great at giving local recommendations to the city we love- restaurants, shows, sites, attractions - we've got you covered!


Free Tours!


DWT offers tours for FREE!  Our free tours are fun, informative, and, we hope, the best free walking tour you’ll ever take.  

  • May - October: Daily at 10:00 am

  • November - April: Saturdays, and Sundays at 10:00 am

Tour Guide Profiles

Janine Conklin

I’m a Denver native and I love sharing my passion for this wonderful city! Colorado has so much to offer, historically, architecturally, culturally and is just plain FUN. Even I discover something new all the time! When I’m not giving tours, I’m Irish dancing, singing or biking about town! 

Jill Collins

I am lucky enough to call Denver home and have so many fun facts to share with YOU - from our city's little known history facts to fun events going on around town, to great local recommendations.  I absolutely love sharing, meeting Denver locals and all of our visitors from around the world, and making my tours as personal as possible. 

Marty Linnet

Yes, it is true. I am a fourth generation Denver native. Denver offers so much (hiking, sunshine and, of course, skiing), that sharing its bounty is a true pleasure.  I look forward to meeting you on one of my upcoming tours to help you learn some great things about Denver.

Renata Henry


Living the dream in Colorado for the past 10 years! With a teaching background, I have a passion for education and can't wait to share all sorts of fun and interesting facts about Denver's history with you! In my spare time, I enjoy hiking with my dogs, going out to Denver's endless amount of amazing restaurants & breweries, and biking around the city. I'd love to give local recommendations to you after the tour to help make your visit to Denver extra special. Can't wait to meet you!

Alyce Olson


When I was a young girl in the Midwest, my family took a vacation out west. It was the moment we hit the mountains that I fell in love with Colorado. I kept saying "one day I'm going to live there". About 15 years ago, I made that dream a reality and have been exploring ever since! I consider myself truly fortunate to be able to share my love of Colorado with others. Guests describe me as personable, enthusiastic, and sincere.

Vanessa DiMaggio

I moved to Denver in 2017, and I never wanna leave! I’m an Italian professor with a love for history and learning about real people’s stories. In fact, I take a walking tour in every city I visit. In my free time, I like to hike, travel and eat my way through all the best restaurants in the city (if you need recommendations, just let me know!). As an educator, it’s my passion to share knowledge with others and to meet people from all walks of life. I’m really looking forward to seeing you on one of my tours soon!

Blaine Vajda

Hi, it’s Blaine here and I’m happy to provide you with a fantastic experience on your tour. I live here in Denver but also lived in Aspen back in the early 90’s. I have moved 19 times since I graduated from college and if Colorado had a beach, there wouldn’t be a reason to travel!  I really enjoy the company of exciting and interesting people who want to help you learn more about the best city in the US. I love yoga, hiking, skiing, surfing and traveling in my time off.  Let’s have some fun!

Cami Kostecki

Growing up in Colorado, I have had the privilege of enjoying this wonderful city and state everyday. The western people and landscapes molded me into who I am today. I love Denver and it is my pleasure to share the sites and stories of The Mile High City with others. In my free time I love to read, hike, ski, explore new places, and meet new people. I look forward to meeting you and entertaining you on one of my tours sometime soon! 

Dick Gallagher

Hi folks!  I am a history buff and a 35 year resident of Denver. I'm excited to tell you all that I have learned – ok, maybe not all, but after two hours, you’ll have learned so much about this great city you’ll want to come again soon!  Come and have fun while we walk through the present and explore the past.
