On this 2.5 hour walking tour of Downtown Denver, you’ll find out all about Whisky, History, and Outlaws! What do these three things have to do with Denver? Everything! Denver was truly the Wild West, where dreams and fortunes were made, won, and lost. From gun fights, to gambling, to high stakes poker games, to prostitution- Denver had it all. Along the way you’ll find out how and where Denver REALLY began. Sip a beer in the oldest brewery in Colorado, hear tales of the gun fighters, pioneers, con men, kingpins of the underworld, bootleggers, smugglers and crime families that made Denver what it is today! We make 3 drink stops along the way. You have the option purchase your drinks individually (drinks are NOT included with ticket price) or we have a drink package available for an additional $30 (cash or credit on site) The drink package includes a craft beer flight, expertly made whisky cocktail, and finish with a whisky/bourbon tasting at the finest modern saloon Denver has to offer. Fun for friends, families, bachelor parties, or if you just want to learn more about Denver, this tour is for you.
