We learned about this tour in a chance meeting with a family in Steamboat Springs who had taken it and raved about it. We only had one day in Denver to end our trip, so we signed up. It made the perfect ending to the trip. As other reviews note, it is an interactive tour with actors at various points. My wife and I greatly enjoyed it, but my boys (ages 9 and 7) absolutely loved it. It follows along with the great US Mint robbery in Denver from the 1920s and has actors playing real characters from the robbery at various stages. The actors were great. They were in period dress with period slang and very good actors. My kids really liked having the actors out in the various places of the city. The rest essentially is a scavenger hunt throughout various locations in the LoDo, theater, and other districts in the downtown Denver area. It was an absolutely great way to see those areas of Denver as well as learn many interesting facts about the area. Over a week after returning from our Colorado trip where we did all kinds of cool things (from hiking, to floating rivers, to mountain biking all types of terrain), my kids still talk about the Inside and Out as one of the best things they did. For my wife and I, it gave us a great appreciation for the city of Denver. We commented several times during the tour and have made the same comment since returning home that the City of Denver should really thank Inside and Out as it puts the city in a fantastic light.
It took approximately 2 and 1/2 hours and involved walking several miles. This was not strenuous by any means strenuous, but if you do not like to walk, you may want to keep that in mind. Also, although the tour is great for kids, it is by no means just for kids. I would highly recommend for those without kids. It was clear from our group (which included another family with older kids and a couple with no kids) that everyone had a great time. We did not know each other at the beginning of the tour but got to know each other well during the tour.
I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
