Centennial Tours–Denver’s First Whiskey & Spirits Bus Tour

Revolutionizing the Denver Experience!

We offer walking and chauffeured tours in the Denver metro area, where business professionals, families, and individuals can experience something unique, fun, & interesting.   Our claim to fame is being Colorado’s first craft distillery bus tour operation, but we are no one-trick pony.  In 2017 we revolutionized experiential learning with Denver’s first Alternate Reality Game bus experience, and we are continuing to develop unique gaming experiences that blur the lines between fantasy & reality.

Tour Reviews Over the Years:

Yelp:

“Amazing tour! Very knowledgeable guide, Rick is amazing! You’ll learn all about how to properly taste whiskey, history of Colorado distilleries and sample some great Scotch. The party bus is so comfortable!

Plus, and this shows how into it they are, I was the inaugural customer for the Craft distillery tour. Due to some glitch in the website I was the only one signing up. Instead of cancelling, Rick offered to do the tour just for me. One of the best tours I have ever done, and it shows how serious he is about it. Highly recommended, any time I’m back in Denver I’m looking forward to do the other tours”

We had a tour today with Rick. Being a Saturday, we couldn’t go inside the Capitol. We did get to go inside a basilica though, that had some of the most beautiful stained glass windows I’ve ever seen. Then we moved over to the outside of the Capital building. Rick knew a lot of the history about Denver. Then, the fun part…..the whiskey! It was in a smal Pub that I never would have went to without this tour. I’m glad we did though!! Great whiskey and food! Rick knew a lot about the proper way to drink your whiskey! I learned a lot and had a lot of fun. We already want to find another one of his tours to take.

I’m not sure which was the best, the whiskey, the tacos, or David’s charisma. He had so much information that he was struggling to pack it all into the tour. This was a great and unexpected experience. I would follow any tour David leads.

David knew his stuff, especially when it came to the liquor part. He knew a lot of the history behind things like whiskey, bourbon, scotch, and rye. He was also able to explain the process of distilling and brewing in an easy manner. He also was funny and had great energy.
