Owner description: Not at all hokey but still super fun and also informative -- what could be better?!! Our excellent walking tours are #1 on TripAdvisor for a reason -- we explore Boulder's best places, by foot, and with knowledgeable and passionate guides! 1) Downtown's "Best of Boulder": An award-winning walking tour described as ".... a gem not to be missed!" Fun and fact-filled stroll through vibrant downtown Boulder bringing together history, architecture, people & planning. Join us as we wander the colorful and historic Pearl Street Mall and neighboring areas in a celebration of this incredible community! 2) Chautauqua ~ Living History: Emerging from a cultural movement of the late 19th century, the Chautauqua continues, through simplicity and a wide variety of cultural offerings, to exemplify its original ideals: lifelong learning, love of nature, music & the arts. 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. Explore the flora and fauna of the Rocky Mountain foothills -- small groups guaranteed to ensure personalized attention! 3) 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!

Not only did we learn the fascinating and surprising history of Boulder, but we had a great lunch at one of the tour stops, The Teahouse. Our guide was knowledgeable, articulate, enthusiastic, and very attuned to our groups' interests. My husband and I had a great time and ended up spending a whole wonderful day in Boulder.

The Downtown Boulder walking tour was a delightful jaunt through the entire history of the downtown area. Our tour guide showed us amazing pictures of when the area was first being developed while standing in front of what they had become. She was delightfully informative and added to an area that is already fun to visit.

The tour covered everything architecture, history, culture, commerce, tourism and even added some quirky and little know details. Our guide, Ellie, shared her love of Boulder with good feeling and vibe. Very interesting and worthwhile, highly recommended!

My husband and I visited Boulder over the weekend and had very little time to wander aimlessly. We picked Boulder Walking tours because the timing was right. Lori was fabulous and giving us a natives view of the downtown with amazing insight on local history. I would recommend this tour for anyone who wants to learn a lot about the area in a short time. Will definitely try the other tours should we return.

Going off great reviews in Moon Guide Colorado and Trip Advisor we signed up for the Boulder Walking Tour. Lori generously helped us schedule a private tour on a day the regular ones werent offered. She was on time, interesting, organized, accurate, and fun to be around. She exuded a love for Boulder that was so evident. We learned a lot about the city and left with great love and fondness for this quirky town. Thanks Lori!!!!
