Foothills of the Rockies Small-Group Half-day Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Ideal for first-time visitors to Colorado or those short on time, this small-group, half-day tour covers some key attractions just outside of Denver in the Rocky Mountain foothills. Let a professional do the driving while your guide shows you around Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, the quaint town of Golden and the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave.
  • Escape bustling Denver to see key sights in the Rocky Mountain foothills
  • Relax while a professional does the driving on winding mountain byways
  • Stroll and shop in Golden, if you'd like
  • Includes all attraction admissions, as well as snacks and bottled water
What to Expect
Meet your guide at downtown Denver's Union Station, where you board your comfortable van for the ride to Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater. Admire the stunning views from this concert venue, built right into the red-rock formations, where musical legends have played for decades. Then motor along the historic Lariat Loop National Scenic Byway to Golden, where you can choose to stroll the shops in the historic town or tour the Coors Brewery—the largest single brewery facility in the world. Then head up Lookout Mountain for panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Memorabilia from the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show are on display at the museum at the top, as is the legendary showman’s grave. You’re likely to see American bison (aka buffalo) grazing at Genesee Mountain Park on your return to Denver's Union Station, the final stop on your tour.

This was a wonderful tour that gives you a taste of Colorado gems. The tour guide was informative and personable. This was a great trip if you only had a half day. The red rocks were truly amazing to see and Buffalo Bills grave site and mountain were breathtaking.
