The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable & engaging. She provided us a welcoming experience to better understand the history of Denver & why the architecture & landscape changed over the years. During the history tour, we were fortunate to come upon local residents that currently owned & were staying in one of these places. These residents were friendly & invited us inside their home to quickly see the interior architecture, the remodeling changes they did, etc. We also got a rare chance to meet a local actually redesigning many of these historic homes to make it more inviting for residents to live. And though we got lucky with these opportunities, our tour guide still managed to keep us within our designated tour timeframe. If you want to get a different historical perspective of the city, I highly recommend you attend this tour.

Walking distance from the Capitol, starts right outside the Molly Brown museum. Great way to learn about the history of Denver and see all the changes that have come and gone through a 2 mile walk around Capitol Hill.
