What you'll do

Join in for an adventure into the unknown on this Ghosts of Capitol Hill tour experience. It's the perfect way to experience Denver's mystery, history, and ghosts, or, if you're looking for a fun nighttime experience. This is also a great opportunity to explore Denver on foot, even if you're busy during the day or arriving into town later in the day and still want to make the most of your visit, plus get a great introduction to the renowned Capitol Hill area of our Mile High City! Your tour experience kicks off at 1288 Gilpin St. on Cheesman Park's north end. The stories that all of our Denver ghosts, apparitions, and ghouls have to tell will raise the hairs on your arms and give you a glimpse into the strange happenings of Denver's seedy past! This walking experience visits the sight that inspired the movies The Changeling & Poltergeist, an old burial graveyard turned park, the most haunted home in Colorado, historic haunted mansions, & both a school and church with reported paranormal activity. Your experience will last about 2-2.5 hours.  Along the way, you'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions, take photos, chat one-on-one and see and learn more in 2 hours than you thought possible. Will you see a roaming spirit, poltergeist or ghost? Please note: Our hair-rising stories are told outside; we don't go inside these buildings, as they are all privately owned.

I had the amazing opportunity to live in Australia 16 years ago, which is where I met my husband, a Kiwi. I spent the next decade traveling the world to 46 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 tours and a team of amazing guides here in Denver since 2015 as a way to have fun, work with and meet amazing people, like you, from all over the world. Experience the top sights, landmarks, mystery, legend, lore and history of our Mile High City's infamous Capitol Hill neighborhood from my insider's perspective or that of one of my teammates, Rachael and Rebecca... hope to see you soon!
