Joan was an excellent tour guide. Her explanations were interesting and informative. Her timing was great--she didn't go over or under the allotted time. I'd go on more tours with Joan.

We loved discovering more about the architecture of Denver related to the growth and changes to the life of the city. Our guide, Chris, was as friendly as he was knowledgeable and infected us with his enthusiasm. After the tour, we felt more in tune with the streets and buildings and noticed details that would otherwise have passed us by. Thank you for making our day in Denver such a fascinating and surprising experience.

I lucked out and had a retired Architect tour guide for my tour down 16th Street (Main Street). He pointed out a ton of architectural design and discussed history that I would never have seen or heard of had it not been for him. I can't wait for my next historical tour in September, 2018.
