Discover Denver tours tour guides






~Susan Sontag

appreciate the local cultures of the cities they traveled to, was through walking tours. Their love of travel, love of their own city, love of being outside, and love of sharing and connecting with people from all over the world led to the launch of Denver Walking Tours, followed by the launch of Discover Denver Bus Tours. Our mission is to provide visitors and locals with access to great small group bus tours, and be able to explore our beautiful city with a local.

We are humbled to have hosted over 42,000 guests on tours over the past five years.

At our core, we are storytellers dedicated to creating amazing memories for our guests as we explore the great sights, landmarks, and history that make our Mile High City so unique. 


"We believe that everyone should have access to a great tour experience, and be able to explore our beautiful city's sights and the stories behind them, which is why we launched Discover Denver Tours. Our amazing team of ten diverse, local guides offers high-quality, interactive bus tours. Whether you're a visitor or a local in our Mile High City, we would love the opportunity to have you on tour! Have some fun, meet other amazing people from all over the world, and get a true insiders perspective, a true appreciation of our culture. Plus, we give great local recommendations.


We live in downtown Denver, love the city, and only wished there were daily Denver bus tours available back when we moved to beautiful Colorado years ago to give us the scoop on all the great sights, history, culture, and fun places to check out around town.  


We've surrounded ourselves with a team of amazing, diverse, local guides who are incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about Denver and the history, architecture, and landmarks that make Denver and LoDo our home. We look forward to helping you make great memories and have a fun time exploring Denver."

I’m a Denver native and I love sharing my passion for this wonderful city! Colorado has so much to offer, historically, architecturally, culturally and is just plain FUN. Even I discover something new all the time! When I’m not giving tours, I’m Irish dancing, singing or biking about town!

I’ve been living in Denver for 3 years & loved getting to know my new home so much, I decided to give tours! I’ve always loved spooky stories & have several years of theater and education experience, so you’ll be sure to laugh & learn a lot on my ghost tours! When I’m not ghost hunting, you can find me teaching at the downtown aquarium, hiking, playing guitar, visiting museums, and spending time with my family and friends. Come explore with me if you like spooky stories & nighttime strolls!

I moved to Colorado when I was 3 and have called it home since. I've been to almost every other state but would never leave Colorado. as I love it’s beauty, history, and easy living charm. I am a people person who enjoys trying to make tours interesting, fun, and fulfilling. When not on tours, I'm hiking with my dog, family, or friends, enjoying good food, golf, music, theatre, and sports. I hope we can tour and learn more about this wonderful city and state together.

#1 Denver Bus Tours

When I was a young girl in the Midwest, my family took a vacation out west. It was the moment we hit the mountains that I fell in love with Colorado. I kept saying "one day I'm going to live there". About 15 years ago, I made that dream a reality and have been exploring ever since! I consider myself truly fortunate to be able to share my love of Colorado with others. Guests describe me as personable, enthusiastic, and sincere.

I am a Denver native and am proud to call Denver my home. I spend most of my free time with my family. Some of our favorite activities are collecting junior ranger badges, gymnastics
competitions, eating pizza, chasing chickens, camping, skiing, and biking. You will see us around town at the zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Farmer’s Markets and our local playgrounds and pools.


I've lived in Colorado for most of my life, growing up in Colorado Springs and moving out to Denver after High School. I adore living in Denver and am so proud to be able to show off my city to you: our amazing guests. I love being able to talk about my favorite parts of Denver and getting to know people from all over the world. Outside of giving tours, I also love hiking and backpacking and  hanging with dogs. I'm very involved in the local music and art scene in Denver. So, come for a tour and make some memories!"

I’m a 4th generation Colorado native with roots back to the early days of the Colorado Gold Rush, in the late 1850s. I grew up outside of Nederland & spent years climbing 14ers (all of them!), hiking and camping in the beautiful Rockies and running marathons. My career dragged me reluctantly out of Colorado twice, but fortunately both times it brought me back and now I’m here to stay. Find me running, bicycling, hiking, or reading. I’d love to share a little history and present-day stories of this great place with you – hop on the bus and let’s go!


I’ve lived in Denver for 13 years. Most of my life I have been a professional chef. I have always had a curiosity for history and the macabre. Now I turn my expertise to the supernatural, leading my ghost tour and paranormal tour guests on a journey through the darkest corners of the Mile High City. Whether you're a believer or a skeptic, allow me to escort you through history and
mystery, creating unforgettable memories with every step.

I'm a Colorado native and have lived in most parts of the Denver metro area. I've been a school teacher for 7 years teaching in both Denver and Aurora schools as a Social Studies teacher.  I love to eat, travel and make art. You can catch me around town watching a movie, doing trivia with my friends, or biking throughout Denver, getting into shenanigans. I love giving people the inside scoop on the nooks and crannies around Denver . If you would like to know a more intimate side of our city, then I hope I can be your tour guide! 

Top 10 things to do in Denver

I'm a midwestern girl who's been lucky enough to call Colorado her home for the last 5 years! I'm a lover of languages, literature & history because I'm fascinated by human nature & how we're all connected, which brought me to tour guiding! It's so exciting for me to be able to share Denver's unique history & hopefully give some insight about how it relates to all of us. My background in education & performing arts encourages me to find new ways to entertain & engage with people on my tours. In my spare time, you'll find me doing yoga, reading, working on a crossword puzzle, cooking & trying to make my friends laugh! ​​
