The majority of the walking tour is paved. There are one or two sections that may go over hard-packed dirt. And we also go down an alleyway for a few blocks that sometimes has debris and/or glass. We have had many strong people in wheel chairs on the tour with no problems, but those in wheel chairs without a lot of strength may find it difficult in certain sections.

    RiNo Art District
    Stop: 2 hours
    Tour-goers will be guided on foot through the RiNo Art District to see some of the best murals and street art in the country. We'll stop at anywhere from 20-30 pieces, but you'll see nearly 100. (And we love questions about all of it.) We'll also stop to discuss the neighborhood's rapid change has brought new hip businesses but also contributed to the displacement of long-time residents ... and has had an effect on the art. We'll end at Denver Central Market (about a 1/2 mile from the start) where you can grab food or drink from any of the gourmet food hall's 10 restaurants.

Great tour
Jun. 2021 • Family
My husband and I did the graffiti tour in 2018, and we enjoyed it so much that it was the one thing I made a point of doing when coming back to Denver this month. Our host today was Jana. She was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and personable. The tour itself is so thoughtful and interesting. I would recommend this tour with no hesitation!

Jana was a super guide. This was my favorite activity in Denver. It is so important to know the derivation of the fabulous art and to understand the culture.

A must do tour
May 2021
The Street Art included in this tour was almost overwhelming. The number of murals was amazing. Our tour guide gave so much information on the artist. She was very informative on the message the artist wanted to convey to us. Her statement that "they used to spend money to cover the graffiti and now they spend money to paint it" shows how peoples perspective has changed. I need to use a scooter to get around and other then broken up sidewalks and alley ways also rough and messy I had no problem doing the tour. I would not recommend someone using a wheelchair. This is a must do tour.

Amazing Tour
Feb. 2020
We had a great morning in the RiNo district learning about the street art as well as the history and culture of Denver. Tour guide was fun, engaging and really informative. This is an amazing area of the city, not to be missed. We gained a lot from a guided tour vs a DIY tour. Really great and highly reccomended - thanks so much!

Viewing Street Art in a Larger Cultural Context
Jan. 2020
As a street art tour guide myself I always seek out other street art tours to learn about the art and culture in other cities. I was blown away by the art in Denver. I could have easily spent another 4 hours exploring on my own. Jesse did a wonderful job explaining graffiti and street art in a larger cultural context. His delivery and pacing of the tour was on point. Street art tours are a great way to see a city and I would highly recommend Denver Graffiti Tours.

Awesome tour! Great tour guide, Jesse Myers. Very informative and enjoyable. Lots to see. And winding up at the Colorado market at the end of the tour with a beer, fabulous! Highly recommend this for anyone, local or just visiting.

Honestly ... a bit of a downer
Loved walking around RiNo checking out the blend of old and new architecture, as well as the overflow of creativity in the form of street art. As a Denver native who is intimately familiar with this area, I am totally inspired by the energy being re-infused into this historic neighborhood.

That said, I found the overly political and negatively slanted script of our guide Kaitlyn to be incredibly annoying. Her overuse of the word gentrification and the repeated message of the plight of the people of Five Points and the objectification of the artists (disparity in pay, discrimination against women artists, etc) became offensive. Such a total downer at every turn. It was clearly the entire focus.

There was no uplifting message relayed whatsoever on this tour and I found it odd that we ONLY stopped at murals where she could spread her bizarre dark-cloud agenda.

I love art in all forms and seek it out whenever possible, but I would not recommend this tour. In fact, a self-guided tour would have been much more enjoyable than the cringeworthy 2 hours of preaching.

It seemed as if she was annoyed when we asked her questions about the graffiti and if we happened to stop and look at one graffiti that was not on the tour she would just keep going. The tour seemed to be really rushed and she didn't speak loud enough for the group to hear and with that, it was about 40 people in the group. I believe it was way to bi of a group for her.

First off, thank you for your feedback. This is totally unacceptable to us and are truly sorry that the experience did not live up to the high standards we set for tours. We strive to provide a deep dive into the Denver street art and the neighborhood in which it's created. We also cap our tours at 25 people, but had a scheduling snafu that day that resulted in more people than expected. We have corrected for that. We failed to deliver the tour that so many have enjoyed. But it won't happen again. Please contact us directly so that we can further resolve this. Thank you for your time.

Learn Something New about Your City
Oct. 2019
I have gone on the Graffiti Tour twice and loved both experiences. Laura was our guide this last time on a windy Sunday morning. She did a great job explaining about the various types of art and the many different artists. She discussed the reasons why they create and talked about their techniques. The information is fascinating as is the neighborhood you tour. There will be much to discuss afterwards when you lunch at one of the many restaurants in the area.

Gosh, we love to read this. We love the idea that our tour would prompt discussions for the rest of the day. It's something we try to do as we not only explore the art but also the issues facing this changing neighborhood. Thanks for coming out.
