This delightful tour is narrated with historic photographs that bring the landmark to life.Birds & Bees: Naturalist-Guided Hikes: Our guides are professional naturalists with years of experience guiding hikes in Boulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks.

CU Boulder: A Learning Landmark: This fun and informative stroll through the award-winning CU-Boulder campus offers a thorough exploration of today's dynamic university, but rooted in background from yesteryear. The first building, opened in 1876, sat atop a donated, treeless bluff, its bell tower ringing the vision that spurred “Old Main” and, indeed, the town of Boulder itself. Since then, the campus has expanded in significance ~ architecturally, intellectually, and civically. Come wander, and wonder, with us! « less

Excellent tour with 10 others and our guide, Lori. Like me, there were 4 other locals on the tour and then folks from out of State. I learned plenty of cool details and facts about my home town. I highly recommend for both visitors and locals to learn about Boulder Colorado.

What a wonderful tour. Our guide Lori was so knowledgeable, and passionate about Chautauqua and it's impact on Boulder. She brought the tour to life with images of the early days, the people who built it and the people who keep it going today. This is one of the best outings ever.

I moved to Colorado a few years ago and even went to school in Boulder but never really knew much. I was enamored with the exciting history that was all around me and that I never knew. There is a reason there are all 5 star reviews. Do it!

We did a walking tour of Boulder with Lori, just a couple weeks after all the flooding. Lori is an incredibly engaging, personable, dynamic, and knowledgeable guide. She made me completely fall in love with Boulder, for all the right reasons. Lori gave informative background on the history of the city, plus filled it in with all the bits of... More

Made accommodation to supply us with a Tour Guide to Chatauqua even though it was not the usual day. Knowledgeable guide, careful to keep us in the shade as it was 97 degrees (yes, a record!) the day we visited.

My son and I took our 2nd walking tour with Lori to the Colorado Chatauqua National Historic Landmark. This beautiful historic spot, at the base of the Flatirons, has been in continuous operation since 1898. It represents a cultural movement in America that emphasized lifelong learning, love of nature, simplicity and the arts. The beautiful site features spacious lawn areas,... More

A friend and I signed up online and were pleasant surprised that we were the only 2 for the walk. That's a bonus for going a little later in the year. Our guide was friendly and really knew the city of Boulder. She did a great job of pointing out little things that we would have missed. It's a great... More

Boulder Walking Tour's Chatauqua History tour is great. It isn't often that you get a history tour given by a professor at Colorado University. The tour was an easy walk through the very historic Chatauqua Conference Center and talked, not only about Boulder and the Conference Center, but also about the importance of the chatauqua movement of the late 1800's...

Just came back from long weekend in Boulder and went on two of the tours sponsored by Boulder Walking tours and I would highly recommend both of them. There were four of us meeting for a family reunion and we chose two tours that would acquaint us with the area (downtown Boulder) and the place we were staying (Chautauqua). Both... More
