I lived in Australia 16 years ago, which is where I met my husband, a Kiwi. I spent the next decade traveling the world to 48 countries and counting, whenever I had the chance, around my full-time job. Walking tours have always been my favorite way to experience a new city, the people and the culture. I've been leading tour experiences and a team of great guides and hosts here in Denver since 2015 as a way to have fun, share my love of our Mile High City, and work with and meet amazing people, like you, from all over the world. Experience the top sights, landmarks and history of our Mile High City from my insider's perspective or the insider perspective of my amazing teammates (Mariah and Laura) - hope to see you soon!

Excellent tour. Laura was a great guide! Our group had large groups, small groups and a single (me); for a total of 9, and she did a great job communicating with everyone and looping everyone in. I enjoyed the interactive questions and informative history about Denver. She even threw in great stories about her hometown in Colorado Springs. I hope they offer a summer tour, because I’m excited to come back! Thank you for a great first Denver experience.

This was my first visit to Denver in the Winter, and so taking this tour was really worth while. The Holiday Lights tour was a great time. The information relayed was so interesting, and our guide, Mariah, was really informative. My suggestion to anyone interested in the tour would be to Uber, as you start in one location and end in another. Denver’s holiday lights are really fabulous, and this is a wonderful way to see them.

I think this has the potential to be a great tour. Unfortunately because of time constraints on our part we had to end the tour early. Also, it was bitterly cold when we took the tour.

Besides holiday lights, the tour also provided insights on Denver's colourful history. As a visitor, it was a great platform to learn more about the city!
