Dylan was an excellent tour guide. My friend and I enjoyed his enthusiasm, his knowledge and his interesting stories. Bill, the owner, was also amazing to work with. We would definitely take this tour again. We would recommend taking it at night.

Phenomenal!!
My wife and I recently had a private tour of the Capital Hill History and Ghost Tour with Hannah. She was the absolute best, extremely friendly and personable with a wealth of knowledge of the area. We both would highly recommend this tour and Hannah as well. Thanks for a great few hours and the history lesson that came along with it.

We decided to do this tour last minute and we are really glad we did. Although the ghost tour was not as scary during the daytime it was still a lot of fun. I highly recommend going on this tour.

Spooktacular!
Nov 2019
I treated my 19-year-old daughter and four of her friends to the ghost tour. Luckily, it was a gorgeous day and our tour guide, Jessica, was outstanding. We learned so many fun facts and loved the creepy feeling we had when we heard about some of the history associated with the homes. My daughter's friends kept talking about the tour well after it was over.

Great historial and 'ghosty' insight!

Bill was great! He was humorous, knowledgeable, friendly and all around a cool tour guide. I recommend this tour for folks who live in Denver but do not know some of the history. And the old houses were wonderful!!

A must do!
Sep 2019 • Couples
My folks were visiting from Montana and this was one of the highlights of their trip. Sheila was wonderful and very engaging. Even when my father, the history buff, kept interrupting her tour to add his tidbits of historical knowledge, she was able to keep the tour rolling. Ha! Bill was a gem, spending the time with me over the phone to find the right tour to fit our needs. He even met us at the end of our time with Sheila to take us to the penthouse of the building where the tour began, so my parents could have a spectacular view of the city. They LOVED that! I’m so happy we did this! You won’t be disappointed.

You and your family, is the whole reason that we love doing what we do. It’s so much fun to show off the city of Denver. I hope you can come back sometime, and take one of our other tours, sometime. Thanks again, Bill

Excellent Capitol Hill Tour with Jessica
Jul 2019 • Couples
Our tour guide, Jessica, was one of the best guides I have ever had. She gave us so much history on the buildings we stopped at and she made the stories of hauntings so interesting and scary. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, visitor or otherwise to Denver.

A great way to spend the evening
Aug 2019 • Couples
My wife and I spent a couple hours on this tour with Jessica who was a great tour guide. We loved her energy and story telling. We originally tried to book with another tour but they were full, so we found this one. We appreciated the small size, and walked past another group that was much larger and less personal, so I'm glad we ended up with this tour instead. The blend of history associated with some beautiful, old mansions with some interesting ghost stories was fun and engaging. Would definitely recommend it.

Good tour
Jul 2019
My son is intersted in anything paranormal, so we went on this tour for him. It was a good tour. We had Rebecca as our guide. It was very interesting, it covered the history and ghost stories. Rebecca was very knowledgable and was willing to answer all of my son's numerous questions. We were able to see places we had heard about and hear about places we ddn't really know much about. One of the interesting things, Rebecca dressed in costume - long black lace dress, hat, umbrella, etc. It added a bit more to the experience.

We only walked along the edge of Cheesman Park, so we were a bit dissappointed by that, and went back another day on our own. The only really bad thing - we knew it did not end back where we started - it says that on the site. However, it said a short walk. It was more than a short walk, we stopped counting at 10 blocks. Luckily, it was not a bad neighborhood, so we weren't really concerned.

Hi, Tonya. I think you might have rated the wrong tour company. We don't have guide named Rebecca, and we don't go anywhere near Cheesman Park. In addition, none of our guides wear costumes. I am not sure if you want to delete your review, and add it to the profile of the tour company that you used. Good luck, Bill Best Tours of Denver LLC.
