Can't make our Denver bus tour, or is your desired bus tour sold out? Try one of our self-guided Audio Adventure tours. Each self-guided tour is narrated by one of our talented guides. These self-guided walking tours of Denver are a great way to see, experience and explore Denver's unique history, architecture, and landmarks on your time! 


Choose from five self-guided Denver walking tours; all you need is a smartphone! Once you purchase the self-guided Denver tour of your choice, you'll receive two emails immediately after purchase (a receipt/confirmation email AND an email with step-by-step directions and a unique 6-letter passcode). If you do not see the emails, be sure to check your junk/spam folder. Then, just:

  • Click on the link in the email to download & open the app

  • Enter your unique six-letter passcode and...

  • Take your chosen Denver Audio Adventure walking tour whenever you choose by following the directions in your passcode email. The app will operate just like your GPS, providing you with turn-by-turn directions! You have the option to download the tour from the app to your cell phone in advance, if you will not have Wi-Fi as you explore the city. 

  • TIP: If you're doing more than one of our self-guided Denver walking tours (which we highly recommend for a full experience of our Mile High City!), consider doing them in this order, as they naturally connect fairly closely to where the previous self-guided walking tour left off: Mile High Highlights first, followed by the Best of Denver, and ending with Denver's Hot Spots + History.

Karina M. "I visited Denver for the first time this past weekend and had found this free walking tour listed as things to do on Tripadvisor. I had the pleasure of having Sherry Moon as my tour guide and loved every minute of it! She was so nice, knowledgeable and fun. It was the first thing I did on my trip and I'm glad I did because I became familiarized with the downtown area right away. . . I definitely recommend it!" Read full testimonial.
