Overview
Soak up the scenery and culture of the Rocky Mountains—even if you have a limited time—on this half-day tour from Denver. Check out the sandstone acoustics of Red Rocks Amphitheatre, drive through alpine forests on the scenic Lariat Loop, and get panoramic views of Colorado’s Front Range from atop Lookout Mountain. It's a great way to see the outdoor playground on Denver’s doorstep without renting a car.

Had Jed as a tour guide and he was so nice! He knew a lot about the sites we visited. Evergreen was my personal favorite because of the lake. We didn't visit all the sites listed on the website. We didn't visit Lookout Mountain or Denver Mountain Parks which was a bummer.

My husband and I took the tour 7/10/2020. We were disappointed. The driver just takes you to a few places and you entertain yourself for 20- 40 minutes. It is nothing different than you driving yourself to these towns & Red Rock amphitheater. The only benefit was my husband did
