Very nice tour of LoDo (lower downtown of Denver). We had a family reunion with ages 6 to 70. Alison was extremely accommodating in getting everything organized. The guides were informative, friendly and engaging. What a treat.

AJ our guide had lots of information about Denver's history, architecture, economy and people to share. He is an enthusiastic, knowledgable guide who lives in the area. That provided a personal perspective that was most valuable. Worth the time and money.
