Great Informative Tour!!
Notice 2 exclamation marks? Great tour led by Rick that not only was fun, but we learned so much about Denver and some of the history! We sampled Whiskeys, Bourbons, a Tequila, Gin, and Rum. We are natives and still, WE LEARNED SO MUCH! Whether you’re a native or a visitor to Denver. You really should take this tour!!
Rick was great!
A fun way to do a first time walking tour of Denver. Rick was very knowledgeable and fun! I’m not a huge whiskey fan, but definitely also enjoyed learning about it. Excellent customer service – I forgot a jacket and shot glasses at the last stop and Rick met us the following day to return the items!
