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—with a tour of Coors Brewery, if you like—Lookout Mountain, and the Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave.
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 4.5-hour tour.

We were picked up in Denver and returned there if that's what you mean by continuing the trip to the city?
