A visit (long version) of almost two hours where we move from place to place near the Denver Capitol. Our guide (very friendly) tells us story after story. For the "paranormal" side ... strange things have happened and especially on the photos taken (orbs). Very nice visit to do.

Our tour guide was fun and described the creepy ghost stories of Denver's past. I had theories as well and asked additional questions that she entertained. It was worth my time and money. Thx

Guide was friendly and had lots of fun and interesting ghost stories plus history of the area! Fun tour!

Enjoyable walking tour, combining history, architecture and ghost stories.

Walt was a fantastic guide! We had a lot of fun. Recommended highly.
