All Tour Tickets are Non-Refundable
Expired third-party tickets are good for the amount originally paid, but once scheduled cannot be rescheduled for another day.
There are only two exceptions to this policy:
1.) Centennial Tours determines the weather to be too severe for touring
2.) The group minimum is not met (bus tours require a minimum of 4 guests).
Rescheduling can be done with at least One Week’s Notice, but there will be a Rebooking fee of $10/guest
What to Bring
I.D.s will be checked for anyone consuming alcohol. No drinks will be served to those without or those that are underage.
Feel free to bring personal items, such as purses, back-packs, and cameras, but beware there are no places to store your items along the way. Pictures are allowed at all the locations, but some historic, and proprietary items might be off limits, so please ask us if you are unsure.
Centennial’s Brunch Party Bus Special begins at 10 am at Corvus Coffee ( 740 S Broadway, Denver, CO 80210) . Please arrive at least 10 minutes early.
The tour usually includes enough alcohol that we must advise you do not drive. The tour takes about 3.5 hours and can vary depending on group size and weather. This tour includes a lot of food, so please plan accordingly (we recommend stretchy pants!)

Parking: Generally, we recommend consulting the Best Parking site for the lowest rates:
However, one of the best parking options is in the lot adjacent to Mile High Spirits (north of MHS on the left). it’s only $3 for the day (excepting Rockies games days). There is limited free parking (street-side) in the vicinity too, but many are 2-Hour Only, so beware. The tour is 2 hours long, but most likely you will not make it back to your car within that window.
Food selection is diverse, and although it is a logistical nightmare to allow guests to individually order every item, it is pretty likely that the options will work for everybody. We eat donuts from Voodoo (pre-selected), tacos from Torchy’s (some will be vegan, and some are gluten-free), and brunch entrees from the Denver Biscuit Company (each guest can choose a sandwich or platter). We cannot guarantee kosher, or sugar–free options at all stops. To make this process easier, we have created a custom online menu.
