Our Denver excursion starts with an insightful city tour, showcasing popular sights such as the Denver Performing Arts Complex, Colorado Convention Center, Civic Center Park, and Denver Art Museum.

We will pass by the lush Cheeseman Park, the historic district of Five Points, and drive along the extensive Colfax Ave, known as the longest street in the nation. Our journey will lead us to our first stop, City Park, known for its stunning cityscape and mountain vistas.

You’ll get to appreciate colorful murals in the vibrant River North (RiNo) Art District, see Coors Field, and savor coffee and empanadas at a preferred local establishment.

Next, we will proceed with a scenic half-hour drive to the monumental Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater. As we venture through the park, the breath-taking rock formations will unfold before us, and we’ll get out to inspect the world-renowned amphitheater (if available). Our trip concludes with a brief visit to Lookout Mountain for a burst of fresh mountain breeze and sweeping views of Denver, Golden, and the majestic Rocky Mountains, prior to heading back to Union Station.

Rocky Mountain Wow! - My wife and I flew to Denver to watch some baseball but since I had never been to Colorado, we also decided we needed to see the mountains and chose Aspire's four hour trip to Red Rocks Amp and Lookout Mountain along with some historic stops in the city. We were not disappointed. Coming from Ohio where there are no mountains, the sights of the Rockies were breathtaking and the knowledge about the area from our guides Jerry and Gable made the experience all the better. And those guides were extremely friendly and hospitable. I'd recommend Aspire to anyone who wants to enjoy their Denver experience.

Our guide Jad showed us... - Our guide Jad showed us around downtown Denver, including all the sports fields, the historical areas, the lay of the land. He then drove us to the awesome Red Rocks Amphitheater. The last stop was Buffalo Bill's grave site on the Look Out Mountain. It was a perfect half day introduction to Denver City and nearby attractions. Jad was knowledgeable and courteous. Would not hesitate to recommend. Thanks!

Great half day tour - This tour was a perfect way to get a preview of some great sites in Denver.. Red Ricks was spectacular. We only had a half an hour to walk around as a sound check was going to be starting for the concert that evening. So that was a little disappointing, but not the tour guide felt. Still wonderful to see it. Then we went out to overlook mountain and had spectacular views. Then we had a tour through the city where the tour guide did explain some of the major sites. My only complaint would be that the tour bus driver did not use the microphone in the van the entire time so it was often sometimes hard to hear him. But we made the most of it, and overall it was a great tour.

Fun and interesting tour of Denver - Jerry S. was an excellent tour guide. He was full of knowledge about the history and current state of Denver. He was also patient as he waited and took pictures for us at each stop.

Nice, But a Bit Too Long - Red Rocks Amphitheater was amazing to see. There were such beautiful views from there and also, Lookout Mountain where Buffalo Bill is buried. Before going back to the city to hear about the different neighborhoods, the driver took us to a place where bison are often spotted. None there that day. Somehow I would shorten this trip to maybe 3 1/2 hours. Possibly not stop at the science museum for a restroom break, but not being able to see anything there. We had two previous stops for restrooms.
